A                        Asus2
Blacking in and out in a strange flat in east London.
A*                       Dsus2 
Somebody I donít really know just gave me something to 
A                          Asus2                    A*           Dsus2
Help settle me down and to stop me from always thinking about you.
        A                          Asus2                                 A*  
And you know your life is heading in a questionable direction when youíre up for days with strangers
        Dsus2
And you canít remember anything 
        A                             Asus2                         A*      Dsus2
Except the way you sounded when you told me you didnít know what I should do.


E                        D           E                            D 
Itís a long road up to recovery from here, a long way back to the light.
E                    D            E                             D
A long road up to recovery from here, a long way to making it right.


A                                             Bm
And Iíve been waking in the morning just like every other day
              Dbm                            D
And just like every boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain
         A                              Bm                     Dbm       D
And so I fumble for your figure in the darkness just to make it go away.
               A                               Bm
But youíre not lying there any longer and I know that thatís my fault
            Dbm                                   D
So Iíve been pounding on the floor and Iíve been crawling up the walls
              A                           Bm             Dbm                     D
And Iíve been deepening my darkness with serotonin boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts.


E                      D             E                            D
Itís a long road up to recovery from here, a long way back to the light.
E                     D              E                        D
A long road up to recovery from here, a long way to making it right.


           F#m                               D                     A
And on the first night we met you said ďwell darling, letís make a deal.
   F#m                           D                        A
If anybody ever asks us letís just tell them that we met in jail.Ē
               F#m                               D
And thatís the story that Iím sticking to like a stony-faced accomplice
    A                                         E
But tonight I need to hear some truth if Iím ever getting through this.
          F#m                              D
Yeah, you once sent me a letter that said ďif youíre lost at sea,
           A                               E
Close your eyes and catch a tide, my dear, and only think of me.Ē
     G                              D
Well darling now Iím sinking Iím as lost as lost can be
          E                                                       A    Bm    Dbm    D x2
And I was hoping you could drag me out from down here towards my recovery.


             A                                 Bm
If you could just give me a sign, yeah just a subtle little glimmer,
      Dbm                                     D
Some suggestion that youíd have me if I could only make me better,
             A                            Bm                    Dbm          D
Then I would stand a little stronger as I walk a little taller all the time.
          A                           Bm
Because I know you are a cynic but I think I can convince you
             Dbm                           D
Yeah, Ďcause broken people can get better if they really want to
      A                                 Bm                       Dbm          D
Or at least thatís what I have to tell myself if I am hoping to survive.


E                         D                E                      D  
Itís a long road up to recovery from here, a long way back to the light.
E                    D                   E                         D
A long road up to recovery from here, a long way to making it right.


A                               Asus2
Darling, sweet lover, wonít you help me to recover,
A*                              Dsus2
Darling, sweet lover, wonít you help me to recover,
A                               Asus2
Darling, sweet lover, wonít you help me to recover,
D                             
Darling, sweet lover, one day this will all be over.
