Recovery
Frank Turner Lyrics


Blacking in and out in a strange flat in east London
Somebody I don't really know just gave me something to help
Settle me down and to stop me from always thinking about you

And you know your life is heading in a questionable
Direction when you're up for days with strangers
And you can't remember anything except the way you sounded
When you told me you didn't know what I should do

It's a long road up to recovery from here
A long way back to the light
A long road up to recovery from here
A long way to makin' it right

And I've been wakin' in the morning just like every other day
And just like every boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain
And so I fumble for your figure in the darkness just to make it go away
But you're not lying there any longer and I know that
That's my fault, so I've been pounding on the floor
And I've been crawling up the walls and I've been dipping in my darkness
For Serotonin boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts

It's a long road up to recovery from here
A long way back to the light
A long road up to recovery from here
A long way to makin' it right

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

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

It's a long road up to recovery from here
A long way back to the light
A long road up to recovery from here
A long way to makin' it right

Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover?
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover?
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover?
Darling, sweet lover, one day this will all be over

Not many songs like this exist. An anthem that make me want to run 500 miles....yet also makes me want to break down and cry. Genius
