    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

    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
