GG chord                    
Forgive me someone, for I have sinned
      Cadd9Cadd9 chord
And I know not where I should begin
     DD chord
Some days it feels like you just can't win
   AmAm chord                     CC chord
No matter what you do or say.


GG chord
Things didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger
Cadd9Cadd9 chord 
Life is short but it feels much longer
       DD chord 
You've lost that drive, you've lost that hunger
   AmAm chord                         CC chord
To pull yourself through the day.

Chorus:
      GG chord                             
But if ever I stray from the path I follow
CC chord
Take me down to the English Channel
DD chord
Throw me in where the water is shallow
         AmAm chord                 CC chord
And then drag me on back to shore! 


     GG chord            
'Cos love is free and life is cheap
   CC chord 
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
DD chord
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
  AmAm chord                     CC chord
I can't ask for anything more


DD chord
Come on everybody sing it 1, 2, 3, 4
GG chord


GG chord                      
We've all got secrets that we hold inside
    Cadd9Cadd9 chord
The worst little things that we try and defy
     DD chord
The worst one of all that you never can hide
               AmAm chord                           CC chord
Is that you're never quite as strong as you sound


GG chord                      
So I'm sorry baby, for the times I've hurt you
Cadd9Cadd9 chord
Sorry friends, for the times I desert you
 DD chord
Most days it feels like I don't deserve you
   AmAm chord                           CC chord
No wonder that you're all still around

Chorus:
      GG chord                             
But if ever I stray from the path I follow
CC chord
Take me down to the English Channel
DD chord
Throw me in where the water is shallow
         AmAm chord                 CC chord
And then drag me on back to shore! 


     GG chord            
'Cos love is free and life is cheap
   CC chord 
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
DD chord
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
  AmAm chord                     CC chord
I can't ask for anything more


DD chord
Come on everybody sing it 1, 2, 3, 4
GG chord


                           DD chord
Come on and join me in the water

Swim for hope
                       GG chord  
Sometimes it's hard to remember
GG chord
I couldn't do this on my own

Chorus:
      GG chord                             
But if ever I stray from the path I follow
CC chord
Take me down to the English Channel
DD chord
Throw me in where the water is shallow
         AmAm chord                 CC chord
And then drag me on back to shore! 


     GG chord            
'Cos love is free and life is cheap
   CC chord 
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
DD chord
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
  AmAm chord                     CC chord
I can't ask for anything more


DD chord
I can't ask for anything more


GG chord
The path I chose isn't straight and narrow
Cadd9Cadd9 chord
It wanders 'round like a drunken fellow
     DD chord
Some days it's hard for me to follow
               AmAm chord                 CC chord
But if you've got my back I'll go on.
   DD chord                            GG chord
If you've got my back I'll go on.
