-VERSE-

A~                       E7sus4~
Blacking in and out in a strange flat in East London
Gadd9~                  D~
Somebody I don't really know just gave me something
   A~                         E7sus4~                          Gadd9~  D~
To help settle me down and to stop me from always thinking about you

        A~                               E7sus4~
And you know you're life is heading in a questionable direction
            Gadd9~                             D~
When you're up for days with strangers and you can't remember anything
   A~                               E7sus4~                               Gadd9~  Gadd9.  D//  Eadd9
Except the way you sounded when you told me you didn't know what I should do

-CHORUS-

             E7                D           Eadd9
Well, it's a long road up to recovery from here
  E7                   D>Dmaj7>D6  Eadd9
A long way back to the light
  E7                D           Eadd9
A long road up to recovery from here
  E7                    D
A long way to making it right

-VERSE-

---
The chords during the verse are played palm-muted and staccato'd,
gradually becoming played open and ringing out normally
---
         A                                E7sus4
And so I wake up in the morning just like every other day
              Gadd9                         D
And just like every boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain
     A                             E7sus4                          Gadd9  D
So I fumble for your figure in the darkness just to make it go away

               A                            E7sus4
But you're not lying there any longer and I know that that's my fault
             Gadd9                               D
So I've been pounding on the floor and I've been crawling up the walls
              A                              E7sus4          Gadd9                  D        Eadd9
And I've been dipping in my darkness for serotonin boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts

-CHORUS-

             E7                D           Eadd9
Well, it's a long road up to recovery from here
  E7                   D>Dmaj7>D6  Eadd9
A long way back to the light
  E7                D           Eadd9
A long road up to recovery from here
  E7                    D
A long way to making it right

-BRIDGE-

          [ch]A6add9[/ch]                            Dsus2                A   Em
So on the first night we met, you said well darling lets make a deal
      [ch]A6add9[/ch]                        Dsus2                     A   Em
If anybody ever asks us, let's just tell them that we met in jail
               [ch]A6add9[/ch]                            Dsus2
And that's the story that I'm sticking to like a stony faced accomplice
    A                                        Em
But tonight I need to hear some truth if I'm ever getting through this

          [ch]A6add9[/ch]                          Dsus2
Yeah, you once sent me a letter that said if you're lost at sea
           A                                   Em
Close your eyes and catch the tide my dear and only think of me
      G                              D
Well, darling now I'm was sinking I'm as lost as lost can be
          Eadd9    >       ?       >       ?        >        Eadd9
And I was hoping you could drag me up from down here towards my recovery

A E7sus4 Gadd9 D

A E7sus4 Gadd9 D

-VERSE-

             A                           E7sus4
If you could just give me a sign, just a subtle little glimmer
       Gadd9                                  D
Some suggestion that you'd have me if I could only make me better
             A                            E7sus4                       Gadd9  D
Then I would stand a little stronger as I walk a little taller all the time

          A                          E7sus4
Because I know you are a cynic but I think I can convince you
            Gadd9                        D
Yeah, cause broken people can get better if they really want to
      A                                E7sus4                Gadd9  D////  Eadd9
Or at least that's what I have to tell myself if I am hoping to survive

-CHORUS-

             E7                D           Eadd9
Well, it's a long road up to recovery from here
  E7                   D>Dmaj7>D6  Eadd9
A long way back to the light
  E7                D           Eadd9
A long road up to recovery from here
  E7                    D
A long way to making it right

-OUTRO-

    Eadd9
So, darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
D
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
Eadd9
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
D                                                   Asus2~ (strum this from the bottom up)
Darling, sweet lover, one day this will all be over
