[VERSE 1]
      C#m
Was a long and dark December 
                    C#m7
From the rooftops I remember
          A   Asus2    F#m      F#5  F5  E5  Eb5   (strum quickly)
There was snow, white snow 
  C#m
Clearly I remember from the windows 
          C#m7               A       Asus2
They were watching while we froze... 
        F#m        F#5  F5  E5  Eb5 
Down below 


[CHORUS]
          A             
When the future's architectured
     B                     C#m
By a carnival of idiots on show 
                 B
You'd better lie low 
G#m     A   G#m  E        C#m B6  C#m
If you love me, won’t you let me know?


[VERSE 2]
      C#m
Was a long and dark December 
                       C#m7
When the banks became cathedrals 
        A  Asus2      F#m         F#5  F5  E5  Eb5 
And the fox    became God 
 C#m
Priest clutched onto bibles 
                          C#m7
Hollowed out to fit their rifles
         A   Asus2      F#m        F#5  F5  E5  Eb5 
And the cross was held aloft.


[CHORUS]
A          
Bury me in armour
         B
When I’m dead and hit the ground 
              C#m           B
My nerves are poles that unfroze
    G#m     A   G#m  E        C#m B6  C#m
And if you love me, won’t you let me know?

[CHORUS]
        A           
I don’t wanna be a soldier 
        B
who the captain of some sinking ship

would stow 
    B
far below...

[OUTRO]
(C#m)     E    A        E     G#m      A
I took my love down to Violet Hill 
        C#m     G#m   A   
There we sat    in    snow 
A   B    C#m  F#m     E         G#m
All that time she was silenced still 
    G#m    A    G#m  E        C#m  B   C#m          A
So, if you love me, won’t you let  me  know?
G#m    A    G#m  E        C#m  B  C#m
If you love me, won’t you let  me know?
