Love's Recovery

I heard an a capella group from Williams College do this
tune, and decided I had to figure it out.  It's a wonderful
song and I hope you enjoy it.

To play the verse, just pick the chords similar to intro. D G During the time of which I speak D It was hard to turn the other cheek G Asus4 A To the blows of insecurity D G Feeding the cancer of my intellect D G The blood of love soon neglected D G Asus4 A Lay dying in the strength of its impurity
CHORUS G* G# Meanwhile our friends we thought were so together A G They've all gone and left each other in the search of fairer weather D G Asus4 And we sit here in our storm and drink a toast A D To the slim chance of love's recovery play intro
There I am in younger days Star-gazing painting picture-perfect maps Of how my life and love would be Not counting the unmarked paths of misdirection My compass faith in love's perfection I missed ten million miles of road I should have seen
CHORUS Meanwhile our friends we thought were so together Left each other one by one in search of fairer weather And we sit here in our storm and drink a toast A D To the slim chance of love's recovery G D A
BRIDGE A G Rain soaked and voice choked like silent screaming in a dream D G* G# I search for our absolute distinction A G Not content to bow and bend to the whims of culture that swoop like vultures D Eating us away eating us away G Asus4 A Eating us away to our extinction Asus4 A
Oh how I wish I was a trinity So if I lost a part of me I'd still have two of the same to live But nobody gets a lifetime rehearsal As specks of dust we're universal To let this love survive would be the greatest gift that we could give
CHORUS Tell all the friends who think they're so together That these are ghosts and mirages these thoughts of fairer weather Though it's storming out I feel safe Within the arms of love's discovery play intro 2x end on D
