Staff smuggled in a card I made

When out of ICU I'll cringe

[Verse 5]
A              G
  You were the baker
     D                          
I'll christen this new era with 
     G        D            A
the smell of freshly baked bread
       G            D
Your Nutella, I'll keep 
it in the cellar
         G        D   
You were always a fan 
        A
of that spread
           G   
Six months on, 
          D         A
there's a car crash outside
            G    D     
The fire brigade using 
             A
the jaws of life
   G                 D     
No flush at night to sound 
        A
your return
           G           D    
I still pretend you're only 
       A
out of sight
             G        
Front garden bouquet, 
  D
I threw it at the fire brigade
G                    D    
I was admonished and told 
             A
to go back inside
                     G      
From the living room window 
   D
I stand and 
watch the white sheet go
G               D       
over the family car and 
           A
I close my eyes
            G          D        
I still pretend you're only out 
   A                  G
of sight in another room
D               A
Smiling at your phone
  G                    D    
I still pretend you're only 
       A                  G
out of sight in another room
D               A
Smiling at your phone
   G                   D    
I still pretend you're only 
       A                  G
out of sight in another room
D               A
Smiling at your phone
   G                   D    
I still pretend you're only 
       A                  G
out of sight in another room
D               A
Smiling at your phone
            G
I still pretend
[Outro]
          D     A       G
A younger me, a younger you
               D      A     G
Meeting at The Serpentine
                  D      
The beginning of spring, 
               A                  G
you wore those yellow ripped jeans
                     D   A   G
Your look defined my 2009
             D         A    G
Your shyness stoked my boldness
             D        A     G
"Shall we go in?", I smiled
                 D       
Your hand warmed walking 
            A        G
through the gallery
D              Bm
  (Get better)
G             D
  I know I will
               Bm
  (Get better)
          G              D   E
My darling, I know I will
