alt-J - Get Better: guitar chords

A     G          D                G
Hallelujah, I'm listening to a recording of you
F#m               Em
sleeping next to me
      G          D
A cappella, I'm listening to you cover
 G      F#m       Em
Elliot Smith's "Angeles"
            G          D           A
It's these times I'll need if you go
            G          D           A
It's these times I'll need if you go, so

Chorus:
D         Bm
Get better, my darling
G           D
I know you will
          Bm          G
Get better, my darling
            D  E7
I know you will
Get better

      D           Bm
I'm drawn to the motorway
     D                     G
The cold whoosh of trucks passing
      D              Bm
This nightmare under sodium light
    D                       G
The orange spread is soul-quietening
    D                 G
A younger you and a younger me
Meeting at The Serpentine
G     E7             D A
I am yours, you are mine

 A     G
Happy birthday
  D
Staff smuggled in a card I made
    G    D              A
It rests under your pillow
 A          G          D
When out of ICU I'll cringe at all
the "I love you"s
     G                D           A
The card retired the life of one biro
         G      D              A
At this time I wanted you to know
         G      D              A
At this time I wanted you to know

Chorus:
Get better, my darling
I hope you will
Get better, my darling
I hope you will get better

I'll start the day with tiramisu
Raise a spoon to frontline workers
An underfunded principle
They risk all to be there for us

A younger you and a younger me meeting
at The Serpentine
I am yours, you are mine

You were the baker, I'll christen this new era
With the smell of freshly baked bread
Your Nutella, I'll keep it in the cellar
You were always a fan of that spread
Six months on, there's a car crash outside
The fire brigade using the jaws of life
No flush at night to sound your return
I still pretend you're only out of sight
Front garden bouquet, I threw it at the
fire brigade
I was admonished and told to go back inside
From the living room window,
I stand and watch the white sheet go
Over the family car and I close my eyes

Chorus:
I still pretend you're only out of sight in
another room
Smiling at your phone
I still pretend you're only out of sight in
another room
Smiling at your phone
I still pretend you're only out of sight in
another room
Smiling at your phone
I still pretend you're only out of sight in
another room
Smiling at your phone, I still pretend

A younger me, a younger you
Meeting at The Serpentine
The beginning of spring, you wore those
yellow ripped jeans
Your look defined my 2009
Your shyness stoked my boldness
"Shall we go in?" I smiled
Your hand warmed walking through the gallery

Get better
I know I will
Get better
My darling, I know I will
