Frank Turner - Redemption

Tabbed by guitaristu

The intro/verse is a little more intricate than written but otherwise
I think it's pretty much all here.

I was walking home to my house through the snow from the station 
When Springsteen came clear in my headphones with a pertinent question
Oh is love really real and can any of us hope for redemption?
Or are we all merely biding our time down to the lonely conclusions

Darling let me take your hand as I talk you through this
How loneliness edged in to deep seated psychosis
Lying awake in crowded hotel rooms focussed on tape hiss
And my failings laid clear on the ceiling I donít think I can do this

I donít think I can do this

G* A* F#m*
I tried so hard to not turn into my father
But if I only ever skip out his choices will I ever choose better
Oh the sad truth is the grass it will always seem greener
So I left you alone in a restaurant in London in winter
You deserve better
Out of trust 
Itís on my back
In my ears

The sound come clear it rings the awful truth
That I canít stand what Iíve done to you
Em (024000)
And  itís written clear in my diary
Today should have been our anniversary

And Iím far away And Iím far apart
And youíre back home with a broken heart
Em (024000)
And love is real and I canít escape
		           Bm (x24432 and x24430)
I only ever have myself to blame

      A        Asus2     Em       D      G         Bm
These failures shift and shape me in the night
      A         Asus2   Em   D   G         Bm
Like a fever I canít (????) as I might
      A         Asus2   Em     D      G         
Wake me darling I need you to take me home
But I know
       A       Asus2      Em       D
In the end redemption is mine and mine alone

G* A* F#m* x2

G* A* F#m*
So my feature list is made up of a tally of mistakes and successes
And the hour in that restaurant makes my score less than impressive
Oh each can be redeemed by the courage in which he confesses
So darling I miss you
Your music and your musk and your kisses
I donít think I can do this
