...FROM DESPAIR TO WHERE... by Manic Street Preachers
---------------------------..........................

*from 'Gold Against the Soul' (1993)*


Verse 1:

  G                      Am7
I write this alone on my bed,
              C                 G
I've poisoned every room in the house.
    G                       Am7
The place is quiet and so a-lone,
               C
Pretend theres something,
              G
Worth waiting for.

G                          Am7
 Theres nothing nice in my head,
          C                  G
The adult world took it all away.
  G                            Am7
I wake up with same spit in my mouth,
         Bb                  (G)
I cannot tell if it's real or not.

Chorus 1:

G  C
    I try and,
Cm                  G
 Walk in a straight line.

G  C       Cm
    An imi-tation,
         G
Of digni-ty.

G  C, Cm
       From despair,
   G
To where?
G   C, Cm
        From despair,
  (G)
To where?

Interlude:

G  Am7, C  G (x2)

Verse 2:

    G                 Am7
Out-side open mouthed crowds,
          C                   G
Pass each other as if they're drugged.
     G                     Am7
Down pale corridors of rou-tine,
      C              G
Where life falls una-toned.

G                   Am7
 The weak kick like straw,
         C                    G
Till the world means less and less.
G                  Am7
 Words are never e-nough,
     Bb                  (G)
Just cheap tarnished glit-ter.

Chorus 2:

G  C
    I try and,
Cm                  G
 Walk in a straight line.

G  C       Cm
    An imi-tation,
         G
Of digni-ty.

G  C, Cm
       From despair,
   G
To where?
G   C, Cm
        From despair to...

Bridge 1:

Em      Eb5  D5  A, C  G, B
 Where...

Em  Eb5  D5  A, C  G, B (x2)

Chorus 3:

G  C
    A cripple,
Cm                   G
 Walks in a straight line.

G  C       Cm
    An imi-tation,
         G
Of digni-ty.

G  C, Cm
       From despair,
   G
To where?
G   C, Cm
        From despair,
   G
To where?
