VERSE 1: Dbm Was a long and dark December From the rooftops I remember A Gbm There was snow, white snow Dbm Clearly I remember from the windows A They were watching while we froze Gbm Down below Chorus: A When the future's architectured B Dbm By a carnival of idiots on show B You'd better lie low A Abm E Dbm B Dbm If you love me, won’t you let me know? VERSE 2: Dbm Was a long and dark December When the banks became cathedrals A Gbm And a fox became God Dbm Priests clutched onto bibles Hollowed out to fit their rifles A Gbm And the cross was held aloft Chorus: A Bury me an armour B When I’m dead and hit the ground Dbm B My nerves are poles that unfroze A Abm E Dbm B Dbm If you love me, won’t you let me know? GUITAR Solo: Dbm Dbm A Gbm x2 Chorus: A I don’t want to be a soldier B Who the captain of some sinking ship Dbm Would stow B Far below A Abm E Dbm B Dbm So, if you love me, why’d you let me go? Outro: E A E Dbm B A I took my love down to Violet Hill B Dbm Abm A There we sat in the snow A B Dbm Gbm E Dbm B All that time she was silent still Abm A Abm E Dbm B A Said if you love me, won’t you let me know? Abm A Abm E Dbm B Dbm If you love me, won’t you let me know?
