-VERSE-

A                 E7sus4
Blacking in and out in a strange flat in East London
A6                            Dsus2
Somebody I don't really know just gave me something
    A                       E7sus4                              A6   Dsus2
To help settle me down and to stop me from always thinking about you


         A                               E7sus4
And you know you're life is heading in a questionable direction
            A6                                 Dsus2
When you're up for days with strangers and you can't remember anything
 A                                  E7sus4                               A6   Dsus2      
Except the way you sounded when you told me you didn't know what I should do

-CHORUS-

E             E7               Dsus2              E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   Dsus2, A*, A**
A long way back to the light
E             E7               Dsus2              E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   Dsus2, A*, A**
A long way to making it right

-VERSE-

          A                            E7sus4
And so I wake up in the morning just like every other day
               A6                            Dsus2
And just like every boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain
       A                           E7sus4                      A6 Dsus2
So I fumble for your figure in the darkness just to make it go away

                A                         E7sus4
But you're not lying there any longer and I know that that's my fault
           A6                                Dsus2
So I've been pounding on the floor and I've been crawling up the walls
                  A                        E7sus4                A6                     Dsus2
And I've been dipping in my darkness for serotonin boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts

-CHORUS-

E             E7               Dsus2              E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   Dsus2, A*, A**
A long way back to the light
E             E7               Dsus2              E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   Dsus2, A*, A**
A long way to making it right

-BRIDGE-
           F#m                              Dsus2                      A
So on the first night we met, you said well darling let's make a deal
   F#m                    Dsus2                                     A   
If anybody ever asks us, let's just tell them that we met in jail

                F#m                             Dsus2
And that's the story that I'm sticking to like a stoney faced accomplice
       A                                   E/G# 
But tonight I need to hear some truth if I'm ever getting through this
           F#m                              Dsus2
Yeah, you once sent me a letter that said if you're lost at sea
         A                                 E/G# 
Close your eyes and catch the tide my dear and only think of me
        G                                  Dsus2
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

E7sus4, A6, Dsus2

-VERSE-

              A                         E7sus4
If you could just give me a sign, just a subtle little glimmer
       A6                                     Dsus2
Some suggestion that you'd have me if I could only make me better
              A                            E7sus4                      A6     Dsus2
Then I would stand a little stronger as I walk a little taller all the time

           A                       E7sus4
Because I know you are a cynic but I think I can convince you
             A6                           Dsus2
Yeah, cause broken people can get better if they really want to
       A                           E7sus4                   A6     Dsus2
Or at least that's what I have to tell myself if I am hoping to survive

-CHORUS-

E             E7               Dsus2              E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   Dsus2, A*, A**
A long way back to the light
E             E7               Dsus2              E
     it's a long road up to recovery from here
   E7                   Dsus2, A*, A**
A long way to making it right

-OUTRO-

E
So, darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
Dsus2
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
E
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
Dsus2                                               A
Darling, sweet lover, one day this will all be over

A few of the main chords are wrong, namely the first two chords in the verse, but not a bad tab :)

The A and E7sus4? What would you say they were?

The first two chords in the verse are spot on.
