Verse:
          Eb
When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
          Cm
And the saints we see
         Ab
Are all made of gold

Verse:
            Eb
When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
         Cm
Are the worst of all
          Ab
And the blood’s run stale

Verse:
Eb                   Bb
   I want to hide the truth
                  Cm
I want to shelter you
                    Ab
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide

Pre-Chorus::
Eb                     Bb
  No matter what we breed
                      Cm
We still are made of greed
                    Ab
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

Chorus:
Eb                   Bb
   When you feel my heat
             Cm
Look into my eyes
                      Ab
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Eb               Bb
  Don’t get too close
           Cm
It’s dark inside
                      Ab
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Verse:
           Eb
When the curtain’s call
Is the last of all
         Cm
When the lights fade out
        Ab
All the sinners crawl

Verse:
         Eb
So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
           Cm
Will come calling out
         Ab
At the mess you made

Verse:
Eb                      Bb
  Don’t want to let you down
              Cm
But I am hell bound
                      Ab
Though this is all for you
Don’t want to hide the truth

Pre-Chorus:
Eb                     Bb
  No matter what we breed
                      Cm
We still are made of greed
                     Ab
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

Chorus:
Eb                   Bb
   When you feel my heat
             Cm
Look into my eyes
                      Ab
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Eb               Bb
  Don’t get too close
           Cm
It’s dark inside
                      Ab
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Verse:
Eb                       Bb
  They say it's what you make
              Cm
I say it's up to fate
                 Ab
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Verse:
Eb                         Bb
  Your eyes, they shine so bright
                  Cm
I want to save their light
                   Ab
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

Chorus:
Eb                   Bb
   When you feel my heat
             Cm
Look into my eyes
                      Ab
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Eb               Bb
  Don’t get too close
           Cm
It’s dark inside
                      Ab
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

  1. For strumming, you could do a single down stroke, DDUUDU, or DDDDU (The third down strum is harder than the rest, like, ddDdu if that makes sense)

  2. Ukelele Pro

    They forgot the G for the first verse

  3. Ukulele_Wolf_World236

    The reason Ab sounds so wrong is because not many people notice the 2 at the top. That means it starts on the second fret. Reply if this was helpful :)))

  5. Anyone know the strumming pattern???

  6. Megan Mineer

    I added some of the cords in some spots without a cord it makes it sound more like the piano and guitar version of the song

  7. Is is just me or does Ab sound wrong?

  8. Ukulele_Wolf_World236

    -3 with capo on fret #3

  9. O-MRS.BELIEVER

    have you tried +5? the weirdest transposition ever!

  10. antitranny

    +4 and -3 are great too

  11. MyPrettyWeeper

    I do -1 and at the end I add a single down strum on D. Sounds more complete that way.

  12. zozthemagicbean

    I’m a big fan of imagine dragons!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Is there anything easier than ab

  14. I love how this song sounds with the original chords and it is really fun to play :)

  15. bandgeek_08

    If you’re just beginning, I recommend -3 and replace G with G7

  16. -3 sounds good, and it’s easy.

  17. DJTIGERESS42

    What one is easiest for beginners?

  18. I love this song

  19. I think f sounds better after eb and cm.

  20. +4
