Redemption  Frank Turner

Frank Turner ? Redemption
Standard tuning
Capo 2 (chord shapes are relative to the capo fret being 0)
Verse Chords:
The song could be described half picking and half strumming,
personally I just normally pick the open B string occasionally,
it?s the one that Frank picks the majority of the time.
(you?ll need to listen to the song or watch this video for timing) -

I was walking home to my house,
Through the snow from the station
When Springsteen came clear on my headphones,
With a pertinent question.
Oh is love really real
And can any of us hope for redemption?
Or are we merely biding our time down to lonely conclusions?
Darling let me take your hand
As I talk you through this,
How loneliness edged into deep seated psychosis.
Lying awake in crowded hotel rooms focused on tape hiss,
With my failings laid clear on the ceiling,
I don?t think I can do this, I don?t think I can do this
Instrumental break:
(again, listen to the song for timing)

Verse (same chords as before):
I?ve tried so hard to not turn into my
Father, but I only ever skip out his choices
Will I ever choose better? Oh the sad truth,
Is that the grass, it will always seem greener,
So I left you alone in a restaurant in London
In winter. You deserve better.
Instrumental chords again but with these lyrics:
Adam Trask is on my back and in my ears
(not sure of chord names here)
G - 300033
G* - 040200
[F#sus4] [-] [224422]  
[G]And the sound comes clear and brings the awful truth that I can't stand what I've done to you
And it's written clear in my diary today should have been our anniversary
But I'm [G]far way and I'm far apart
And you're back home with a broken heart
And love is real and I can?t escape
I'll only ever have myself to [F#sus4]blame
These fai[Dsus4]lures shift and s[Em7]ave me i[Dsus4]n the ni[G]ght[F#sus4]
Like a [Dsus4]fever I can't [Em7]break t[Dsus4]ry as I mi[G]ght[F#sus4]
[Dsus4]Wake me darling I [Em7]need you t[Dsus4]ake me ho[G]me
But I k[F#sus4]now in the [Dsus4]end redemptio[Em7]n is mine and[Dsus4] mine al[G]one
So if each of us is made of a tally of mistakes and successes
Then the hour in the restaurant makes my score less than impressive
If each can be redeemed with the courage by which he confesses
So darling I miss you, your music and your musk and your kisses
I don't think I can do this
