DADGAD-tuned capo 4.  I don't actually tune DADGAD, instead I emulate
it on a standard-tuned guitar with a partial capo.  Put a regular capo
on the second fret and a 345-string partial capo on the fourth.  You
can also replace the 345-capo with a regular capo covering the bottom
five strings, but it doesn't work quite as well since you can't play
the bottom two strings open.

I've got a little hope in my pocket, I want to share a bit with you
Just be careful that you don't drop it, but don't worry if you do
'Cause I got broken down inside me, and I might just need some help
But I will get by

And I've got demons in my history, got bone beneath my skin
But I've been taken by a mystery, yes, I've been taken in
And sometimes voices down inside me try to fight me for myself
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning, it's burning me up
I'm alright

I used to think love was just a barter, second hand coincidence
What doesn't kill you just makes you harder, so I used my common sense
Keeping cold to keep my distance, ‘til you took my pride away
Now I will get by

I am not afraid, no, I am not afraid
And I will not go crazy here

I've got a little hope here in my pocket, I want to share a bit with you
So just be careful that you don't drop it, but don't worry if you do
'Cause I got voices down inside me, and I might just need some help
I will get by

What have I got to live for
If there's nothing beating in my chest
What have I got to live for
When this world starts turning, burning me up
When my heart is hurting, I'm learning the rough
When this world starts turning, it's burning me up
I'm alright
