[Verse 1]

A                        Asus2
Blacking in and out in a strange flat in east London.
A/C#                       Dsus2 
Somebody I don?t really know just gave me something to 
A                          Asus2                    A/C#           Dsus2
Help settle me down and to stop me from always thinking about you.
        A                          Asus2                                 A/C#  
And you know your life is heading in a questionable direction when you?re up for days with strangers
        Dsus2
And you can?t remember anything 
        A                             Asus2                         A/C#      Dsus2
Except the way you sounded when you told me you didn?t know what I should do.


[Chorus]

E                        D           E                            D 
It?s a long road up to recovery from here, a long way back to the light.
E                    D            E                             D
A long road up to recovery from here, a long way to making it right.


[Verse 2]

A                                             Bm
And I?ve been waking in the morning just like every other day
              Dbm                            D
And just like every boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain
         A                              Bm                     Dbm       D
And so I fumble for your figure in the darkness just to make it go away.
               A                               Bm
But you?re not lying there any longer and I know that that?s my fault
            Dbm                                   D
So I?ve been pounding on the floor and I?ve been crawling up the walls
              A                           Bm             Dbm                     D
And I?ve been deepening my darkness with serotonin boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts.


[Chorus]

E                      D             E                            D
It?s a long road up to recovery from here, a long way back to the light.
E                     D              E                        D
A long road up to recovery from here, a long way to making it right.


[Bridge]

           F#m                               D                     A
And on the first night we met you said ?well darling, let?s make a deal.
   F#m                           D                        A
If anybody ever asks us let?s just tell them that we met in jail.?
               F#m                               D
And that?s the story that I?m sticking to like a stony-faced accomplice
    A                                         E
But tonight I need to hear some truth if I?m ever getting through this.
          F#m                              D
Yeah, you once sent me a letter that said ?if you?re lost at sea,
           A                               E
Close your eyes and catch a tide, my dear, and only think of me.?
     G                              D
Well darling now I?m sinking I?m as lost as lost can be
          E                                                       A    Bm    Dbm    D x2
And I was hoping you could drag me out from down here towards my recovery.


[Verse 3]

             A                                 Bm
If you could just give me a sign, yeah just a subtle little glimmer,
      Dbm                                     D
Some suggestion that you?d have me if I could only make me better,
             A                            Bm                    Dbm          D
Then I would stand a little stronger as I walk a little taller all the time.
          A                           Bm
Because I know you are a cynic but I think I can convince you
             Dbm                           D
Yeah, ?cause broken people can get better if they really want to
      A                                 Bm                       Dbm          D
Or at least that?s what I have to tell myself if I am hoping to survive.


[Chorus]

E                         D                E                      D  
It?s a long road up to recovery from here, a long way back to the light.
E                    D                   E                         D
A long road up to recovery from here, a long way to making it right.


[Outro]

A                               Asus2
Darling, sweet lover, won?t you help me to recover,
A/C#                              Dsus2
Darling, sweet lover, won?t you help me to recover,
A                               Asus2
Darling, sweet lover, won?t you help me to recover,
D                             
Darling, sweet lover, one day this will all be over.

best of the chords posted so far. ***** Thank you.
I believe the A* is A/C#; same chord, different name?
