                             FAILURE - Laura Marling
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: hiron79
Email: hiron79@gmail.com

Tuning: Regular

There are a couple of dodgy versions of this kicking around, but I think this is 
closer to how it should be played! (I think!)

Enjoy!

[Repeat for verse 2]

He used to be the life and soul of everyone around
Youd never catch him looking up and never see him down but oh, la laa
He couldnt raise a smile oh, not for a while and, he's a failure now.

Dont cry child, youve got so much more to live for,
Dont cry child, youve got something I would die for,
And if it comes to the rain, just be glad youll smile again,
Cause so many don't
And so many go unnamed.


[Verse 3]
(same a Verses 1 and 2)

People push right past me shouting various claims
A preacher pushes me a side and asked to wash my sins i said no, la laa
If he made me in his image, then hes a failure too.


[Verse 4]
(same as others but drop the last 2 bars and go straight into the bridge)

And I used to need a couple of people to keep my head down
Now I need a whole lot more to keep me on the ground but oh, la laa
I gave up something and I gave it up for nothing and I am failure now.


[Bridge]

[Chorus]
