Hope in the Air
Laura Marling

Capo 3
Tuning: D A D F A D

Tabbed from Owl Parliament [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xqSZUT6fYY]
Since many of the underlying notes are difficult to hear in this recording, Ive 
only tabbed the gist of the song.
Hopefully I can put together a more complete version when the album out in March.  Thanks!

1. Speak minds handed down to you
   By the lies handed down by your truth
   Your angels that dance at your will
   Will mask your scrambling youth

   Laid a kiss on your head and before I left said
   Stay away from fleeting favor

LYRICS:
There is a man that I know
For seventeen years he never spoke
Guess he had nothing to say
He opened his mouth on judgment day

I listened with all of my might
But was scared by the look in his eyes
Like he'd already lost the fight
And there was no hope ever in sight

No hope in the air,
No hope in the water,
Not even for me,
Your life serving daughter

Why fear death?
Be scared of living
Our hearts are small and ever thinning
There is no hope ever of winning
So why fear death?
Be scared of living
I have seen men provoked
I have watched lives revoked
And I looked at my life and I choked
And from there, no more ever I have spoke

But I can't give up that quick
My life is a candle and a wick
You can't put it out but you can't break it down
In the end, we are waiting to be lit

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But no hope for me, your life serving daughter
A friend is a friend forever
And a good one will never leave, never
But you’ve never been south and what rolls of your mouth
You will never understand, ever

Speak minds handed down to you
By the lies handed down by your truth
Your angels that dance at your will
Will mask your scrambling youth

I forgave you your shortcomings
And ignored your childish behavior
Laid a kiss on your head
And before I left said,
"Stay away from fleeting favor"
There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me, your life serving daughter

Oh, pick up your rope, Lord
Sling it to me
If we are to battle, I must not be weak.
And give us your strength, World
and your food and your water
Oh I am your savior,
Your life serving daughter

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me, your life serving daughter
There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But no hope for me, your life serving daughter

Hey- all the riffs look perfect, but (other than the lyrics you have written in the first half) I have no idea what goes where!
Yes, the chord sequences are pretty much the same all the way through, but it would be nice to know which variation goes where. If you could label the lyrics, that would be great :)

i seem to hear that in the tuning it should be an "F" not "F#" it's really an open Dm tuning
