LOVE'S RECOVERY (Emily Saliers)
[Tune 6th string (low E) down to D.]
[Actually in F, so capo up 3 frets.]
[Feel free to simplify some of the chords; e.g., play Gmaj13 as G6 or GM7.]
[Each chord is one measure, with these exceptions: Chords joined by hyphens
 are one measure _total_; the (D)'s at the end of the choruses only last
 about one quarter-note, and the chords on the very last line have timing
 markers underneath them.]

D    Gmaj7/D    D11    Em9/D       D    Gmaj7/D    D11    Em9/D

            D                Gmaj13       Gmaj13            D(9)
During the time of which I speak, it was hard to turn the other cheek
Gmaj13     Gmaj13       Asus    A7
  To the blows of insecurity
              D            Gmaj13             D(9)       D 
Feeding the cancer of my intellect, the blood of love, soon neglected
D(9)               G                   Asus    A7
  Lay dying in the strength of its impurity

                 G          G               E7/G#   E7/G# 
Meanwhile our friends we thought were so together,   they've all
  Asus               A7       G                   G
Gone and left each other in search of fairer weather
       D                 G
And we sit here in our storm and drink a toast
A7sus           A7                 D     A7/D (D) A7/D  Em  D  A7/D  D  A7
  To the slim chance of love's recovery

There I am in younger days, stargazing, painting picture perfect maps
Of how my life and love should be
Not counting the unmarked paths of misdirection, my compass, faith in
   love's perfection
I missed ten million miles of road I should've seen

Meanwhile our friends we thought were so together
Left each other one by one on the road to fairer weather
And we sit here in our storm and drink a toast
A7sus           A7                 D     A7/D (D) A7/D  Em
  To the slim chance of love's recovery

A  -   Asus      A   -  Asus      C(9)                C(9)
Rain soaked and voice choked like silent screaming in a dream
  D               D           Bm/D    E7
I search for our absolute distinction
A   -   Asus    A   -   Asus         C(9)                C(9)
Not content to bow and bend to the whims of culture that swoop like vultures)
D           D    D           D
Eating us away,  eating us away
G           G              Asus   A   Asus   A
Eating us away to our extinction

Oh how I wish I were a trinity, so if I lost a part of me
I'd still have two of the same to live
But nobody gets a lifetime rehearsal; as specks of dust, we're universal
To let this love survive would be the greatest gift that we could give

Tell all the friends who think they're do together
That these are ghosts and mirages, all these thoughts of fairer weather
Though it's storming out, I feel safe within the
A7sus   A7               D     A7/D   (D) A7/D    Em
arms      of love's dicovery
