Intro:  Instrumental Verse

 

 G (2)

Love rescue me

          C                          G

Come forth and speak to me

               G (2)                       D/F#

Raise me up and don't let me fall

        G (2)

No man is my enemy

              C                    G

My own hands imprison me

 G     D/F#        G (2)

Love rescue me

 

              G (2)

Many strangers have I met

             C                   G

On the road to my regret

          G (2)                                             D/F#

Many lost who seek to find themselves in me

         G                G7

They ask me to reveal

                 C                               G

The very thoughts they would conceal

G     D/F#        G (2)

Love rescue me

 

              C (2)                              G (2)

And the sun in the sky makes a shadow of you and I

                 G (2)                                 D/F#     D7/F#

Stretching out as the sun sinks in the sea   

       G                      G7            C                   G

I'm here without a name in the palace of my shame

        G     D/F#        G (2)

Said love rescue me

 

                  G (2)

In the cold mirror of a glass

    C                       G

I see my reflection pass

                G (2)                                   D/F#

I see the dark shades of what I used to be

                G                G7

I see the purple of her eyes

          C                G

The scarlet of my lies

G     D/F#        G (2)

Love rescue me

 

             C (2)                              G (2)

And the sun in the sky makes a shadow of you and I

                 G (2)                                 D/F#     D7/F#

Stretching out as the sun sinks in the sea   

       G                      G7            C                          G

I'm hanging by my thumbs I'm ready for whatever comes

G     D/F#        G (2)

Love rescue me

 

  D/F# (2)                                               G (2)

Yeah though I walk through the valley of shadow

 D/F# (2)                 G (2)

Yet I will fear no evil

            G                          G7              C                   G

I have cursed thy rod and staff they no longer comfort me

G     D/F#        G (2)

Love rescue me

 

G (2)

    Sha la la sha la la,   Sha la la sha la la

 C                           G

    Sha la la sha la la, Sha la la sha la la

G (2)

    Sha la la sha la la,  Sha la la sha la la

 D7 (2)

    Sha la la sha la la,  Sha la la sha la la

G                            G7

    Sha la la sha la la,   Sha la la sha la la

 C                           G

    Sha la la sha la la, Sha la la sha la la

G     D/F#        G (2)

Love rescue me

 

        G (2)

I've conquered my past

          C                  G

The future is here at last

    G (2)                               D/F#

I stand at the entrance to a new world I can see

         G              G7

The ruins to the right of me

         C                  G

Will soon have lost sight of me

G     D/F#        G (2)

Love rescue me
