Verse:
D             Em              Bm
This is gospel for the fallen ones
 
locked away in permanent slumber 
D             Em             Bm
Assembling their philosophies 

from pieces of broken memories 


D     Em        Bm
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

This is the beat of my heart -2X- 
D     Em        Bm
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

This is the beat of my heart -2X- 

Pre-Chorus:
    G                  A
The gnashing teeth and criminal tongues 
    Bm                A
conspire against the odds 
          G                             A
but they haven’t seen the best of us yet 

Chorus: 
                        D Em Bm
If you love me, let me go
                        D Em Bm
If you love me, let me go 


             G                   D
Cause these words are knives and often leave scars 
A            Bm
The fear of falling apart 
     G              D
And truth be told I never was yours 
A             
The fear, The fear of falling apart 


D     Em        Bm
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

This is the beat of my heart -2X- 
D     Em        Bm
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

This is the beat of my heart -2X- 

Verse:
D            Em               Bm
This is gospel for the vagabonds, 

ne’re-do-wells and insufferable bastards 
D             Em          Bm
Confessing their apostasies 

led away by imperfect impostors 


D     Em        Bm
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

This is the beat of my heart -2X- 
D     Em        Bm
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

This is the beat of my heart -2X- 

Pre-Chorus:
      G                        A
Don’t try to sleep through the end of the world 
     Bm       A
and bury me alive 
         G                            A
‘cause I won’t give up without a fight 

Chorus: 
                        D Em Bm
If you love me, let me go
                        D Em Bm
If you love me, let me go 


             G                   D
Cause these words are knives and often leave scars 
A            Bm
The fear of falling apart 
     G              D
And truth be told I never was yours 
A             
The fear, The fear of falling apart 


G           D  
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 
A           Bm
The fear of falling apart 
G             D
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 
A            Bm
The fear, the fear of falling apart 


D     Em        Bm
Oh oh oh oh oh oh 

This is the beat of my heart 

This is the beat of my heart 
                         
The fear of falling apart     -x4-
