From Despair to Where  Manic Street Preachers

...FROM DESPAIR TO WHERE... by Manic Street Preachers
 
 ---------------------------..........................

*from 'Gold Against the Soul' (1993)*
Verse 1:
I [G]write this alone on my [Am7]bed,
I've poisoned [C]every room in the [G]house.
The [G]place is quiet and so a-[Am7]lone,
Pretend theres [C]something,
Worth waiting [G]for.
[G] Theres nothing nice in my [Am7]head,
The adult [C]world took it all a[G]way.
I [G]wake up with same spit in my [Am7]mouth,
I cannot [Bb]tell if it's real or[(G)] not.
Chorus 1:
[G] [C] I try and,
[Cm] Walk in a straight [G]line.
[G] [C] An imi-[Cm]tation,
Of digni-[G]ty.
G C, Cm
From despair,
To [G]where?
G C, Cm
From despair,
To[(G)] where?
Interlude:
G Am7, C G (x2)
Verse 2:
Out-[G]side open mouthed [Am7]crowds,
Pass each [C]other as if they're [G]drugged.
Down [G]pale corridors of rou-[Am7]tine,
Where [C]life falls una-[G]toned.
[G] The weak kick like [Am7]straw,
Till the [C]world means less and [G]less.
[G] Words are never e-[Am7]nough,
Just [Bb]cheap tarnished glit[(G)]-ter.
Chorus 2:
[G] [C] I try and,
[Cm] Walk in a straight [G]line.
[G] [C] An imi-[Cm]tation,
Of digni-[G]ty.
G C, Cm
From despair,
To [G]where?
G C, Cm
From despair to...
Bridge 1:
Em Eb5 D5 A, C G, B
Where...
Em Eb5 D5 A, C G, B (x2)
Chorus 3:
[G] [C] A cripple,
[Cm] Walks in a straight [G]line.
[G] [C] An imi-[Cm]tation,
Of digni-[G]ty.
G C, Cm
From despair,
To [G]where?
G C, Cm
From despair,
To [G]where?
