Capo 4

For the rythm and hammer ons listen to the song. The Chords in the Chorus aren't 
the same Frank Turner uses, but they sound very similar to them. The Bridge was 
hard for me, so feel free to correct it :-) Sorry that I don't know the chords names...

Verse:
C                       G
Some mornings I pray for evening,
D                 C
For the day to be done.
C                  G
Some summer days I hide away
D                    C 
And pray for rain to come.
C                      G
It turns out hell will not be found
D                C
Within the fires below,
C                     G
But in making do and muddling through
D                        C - E** - D** - D***
When you've nowhere else to go.

Chorus
C*            G*    D*
But then I remember you,
        C*            G*                    D*
And the way you shine like truth in all you do.
    C*          G*    D*
And if you remembered me,
          C*               G*            D*
You could save me from the way I tend to be.

Intro 2x

Verse (same as verse 1)

Some days I wake up dazed my dear,
And I don't know where I am.
I've been running now so long I'm scared
I've forgotten how to stand.
I stand alone in airport bars
And gather thoughts to think:
That if all I had was one long road
It could drive a man to drink.

Chorus

But then I remember you,
And the way you shine like truth in all you do.
And if you remembered me,
You could save me from the way I tend to be.

Bridge (play muted and fast)
Em7          D/F#   G        C             D        Em7         D/F# 
Because I've said I love you so many times that the words kinda die in my
G
Mouth.
Em7            D/F#      G         C         D         Em7        D/F#
And I meant it each time with each beautiful woman but somehow it never
      G
Works out.
Em7       D/F#       G          C              D             Em7    D/F#
You stood apart in my calloused heart, and you taught me and here's what I
G
Learned:
Em7          G         C                   D        Em7 D/F#       
That love is about the all the changes you make and not just three small 
G
words.


Chorus
And then I catch myself
Catching your scent on someone else
In a crowded space
And it takes me somewhere I cannot quite place.

But then I remember you,
And the way you shine like truth in all you do.
And if you remembered me,
You could save me from the way I tend to be.
