Verse 1:
Was a long and dark December

From the rooftops I remember
          A           Gbm
There was snow, white snow
Clearly I remember from the windows
They were watching while we froze
Down below

When the future's architectured
     B                     Dbm
By a carnival of idiots on show
You'd better lie low
       A    Abm E         Dbm  B  Dbm
If you love me, won’t you let me know?

Verse 2:
Was a long and dark December

When the banks became cathedrals
      A          Gbm
And a fox became God
Priests clutched onto bibles

Hollowed out to fit their rifles
         A             Gbm
And the cross was held aloft

Bury me an armour
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

I don’t want to be a soldier
Who the captain of some sinking ship
Would stow
Far below
           A    Abm E         Dbm  B  Dbm
So, if you love me, why’d you let me go?

          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?
