Frank Turner - Redemption

[Verse 1]
I was walking home to my house through the snow from the station
When Springsteen came clear in my headphones with a pertinent question
Oh, is love really real and can any of us hope for redemption?
Or are we all merely biding our time down to the lonely conclusions?

[Verse 2]
Darling, let me take your hand as I talk you through this
How loneliness edged into deep seeded psychosis
Lying awake in crowded hotel rooms focused on tape hiss
With my failings laid clear on the ceiling, I don't think I can do this
I don't think I can do this

[Verse 3]
Well, I've tried so hard to not turn into my father
But if I only ever skip out his choices, will I ever choose better?
Oh, the sad truth is the grass, it will always seem greener
So I left you alone in a restaurant in London in winter
You deserved better

[Bridge]
Adam Trask
Is on my back
And in my ears

And the sound comes clear and brings the awful truth
That I can't stand what I've done to you
And it's written clear in my diary
Today should have been our anniversary
But I'm far away and I'm far apart
And you're back home with a broken heart
And love is real and I can't escape
I'll only ever have myself to blame
