Verse:
A                 E7    
Blacking in and out in a strange flat in East London
A                             D    
Somebody I don't really know just gave me something
    A                       E7                                  A    D    
To help settle me down and to stop me from always thinking about you


         A                               E7    
And you know you're life is heading in a questionable direction
            A                                  D    
When you're up for days with strangers and you can't remember anything
 A                                  E7                                   A    D          
Except the way you sounded when you told me you didn't know what I should do

Chorus:
E             E7               D                  E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   D    A   A
a long way back to the light
E             E7               D                  E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   D    A   A  
a long way to making it right

Verse:
          A                            E7    
And so I wake up in the morning just like every other day
               A                             D    
And just like every boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain
       A                           E7                          A  D    
So I fumble for your figure in the darkness just to make it go away


                A                         E7    
But you're not lying there any longer and I know that that's my fault
           A                                 D    
So I've been pounding on the floor and I've been crawling up the walls
                  A                        E7      
And I've been dipping in my darkness for serotonin 
              A                      D    
boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts

Chorus:
E             E7               D                  E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   D    A   A  
a long way back to the light
E             E7               D                  E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   D    A   A  
a long way to making it right

Bridge:
           Gbm                              D                          A
So on the first night we met, you said well darling let's make a deal
   Gbm                    D                                         A   
If anybody ever asks us, let's just tell them that we met in jail


                Gbm                             D    
And that's the story that I'm sticking to like a southern facing compass
       A                                   E    
But tonight I need to hear some truth if I'm ever getting through this
           Gbm                              D    
Yeah, you once sent me a letter that said if you're lost at sea
         A                                 E    
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
           E                           E7                           A
And I was hoping you could drag me up from down here towards my recovery

Interlude: E7  A  D        

Verse:
              A                         E7    
If you could just give me a sign, just a subtle little glimmer
       A                                      D    
Some suggestion that you'd have me if I could only make me better
              A                            E7                          A      D    
Then I would stand a little stronger as I walk a little taller all the time


           A                       E7    
Because I know you are a cynic but I think I can convince you
             A                            D    
Yeah, cause broken people can get better if they really want to
       A                           E7                       A      D    
Or at least that's what I have to tell myself if I am hoping to survive

Chorus:
E             E7               D                  E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   D    A   A  
a long way back to the light
E             E7               D                  E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   D    A   A  
a long way to making it right

Outro:
E
So, darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
D    
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
E   
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
D                                                   A
Darling, sweet lover, one day this will all be over
