Intro: G

Oh, well it's hard to look deep into your soul.
Not everything you'll find will be perfect gold.
Am                               C           G
There are ghosts and demons that hide in the dark.
Am                                 C          G
Oh, they wait till I find love and then the-e-y laugh.
Oh, they know that my body is no way good enough.
Know that my heart is no way strong enough 
Am                 C         G
To bare the sorrow that love brings.
Am                           C       G     
When i coil in fear, oh, the de-e-mons sing-
  Am                                   C               G
oh it's a hollow love for a heart with no blood in its veins.

G                       Am
Oh, there is no endless devotion,
G                       Am
that is free from the force of erosion.
               C                G
Oh, and if you don't believe in God,
        C              G
how can you believe in love?
           C        G                C       G
When we're all just matter that will one day scatter,
     Am           C             G
when peaceful the world lays us down.

               G                    Am
Oh and finding love is a matter of luck,
             G                         Am
and unsettled lovers move from fuck to fuck.
        C             G                 C          G
Oh, and compare their achievements like discussing bereavements
        C           G                 C       G
And compare their abbrations with romantic quotations,
        Am           C             G
Oh, as peaceful, the world watches down.

               G                Am
But oh we were blown out of the water.
           G                        Am
Oh, and we walk on the feet we have grown.
               C       G               C          G
Oh And we were given a heart, of which love is a part.
            C           G                 C            G
Oh, and we cornered the thing from which all life will spring.
            Am           C             G
And it gave value to the world that surrounds us

          G                          Am
But we consider the world just for a moment
           G                    Am
Oh and its gone before we even know
           C         G              C          G
Oh but ill follow it round yeah ill follow it round
           C         G              C          G
Oh ill follow it round yeah ill follow it round
           Am           C        G
Till peaceful, the world lays me down

End on: G
