Frank Turner – Redemption chords

Frank Turner - Redemption

Tabbed by guitaristu

The intro/verse is a little more intricate than written but otherwise
I think it's pretty much all here.

G* A* F#m*I was walking home to my house through the snow from the station
When Springsteen came clear in my headphones with a pertinent question Oh is love really real and can any of us hope for redemption? Or are we all merely biding our time down to the lonely conclusions Darling let me take your hand as I talk you through this How loneliness edged in to deep seated psychosis Lying awake in crowded hotel rooms focussed on tape hiss And my failings laid clear on the ceiling I don’t think I can do this I don’t think I can do this BREAK

G* A* F#m*I tried so hard to not turn into my father
But if I only ever skip out his choices will I ever choose better Oh the sad truth is the grass it will always seem greener So I left you alone in a restaurant in London in winter
Bm*You deserve better
A**Out of trust
Bm*It’s on my back
A**In my ears
G The sound come clear it rings the awful truth
That I can’t stand what I’ve done to you
Em (024000)And it’s written clear in my diary
Today should have been our anniversary
G And I’m far away And I’m far apart
And you’re back home with a broken heart
Em (024000)And love is real and I can’t escape
Bm (x24432 and x24430)I only ever have myself to blame
A Asus2 Em D G BmThese failures shift and shape me in the night
A Asus2 Em D G BmLike a fever I can’t (????) as I might
A Asus2 Em D G Wake me darling I need you to take me home
BmBut I know
A Asus2 Em DIn the end redemption is mine and mine alone
G* A* F#m* x2
G* A* F#m*So my feature list is made up of a tally of mistakes and successes
And the hour in that restaurant makes my score less than impressive Oh each can be redeemed by the courage in which he confesses So darling I miss you Your music and your musk and your kisses
G*I don’t think I can do this
