Verse:
  Bb              Dm             Eb                  Bb
I did my best to notice when the call came down the line.
          F              Gm          Eb                  F
Up to the platform of surrender I was brought, but I was kind.
    Bb               Dm            Eb           Gm
And sometimes I get nervous when I see an open door.
           Eb                Eb         F         F
Close your eyes, clear your heart.

Chorus:
        Bb             Dm   Eb           Bb
Cut the cord - are we human,  or are we dancer?
F            Gm   Eb              F
  My sign is vital,  my hands are cold.
        Bb     Dm                   Gm      Gm
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer.
       Cm    Eb           Bb        Bb
Are we human,  or are we dancer?

Verse:
          Bb                  Dm                Eb           Bb
Pay my respects to grace and virtue, send my condolences to good.
          F                 Gm                  Eb                 F
Give my regards to soul and romance, they always did the best they could.
    Bb            Dm                   Eb            Gm
And so long to devotion, you taught me everything I know.
         Eb            Eb         F         F
Wave goodbye, wish me well.       

Chorus:
                  Bb           Dm   Eb           Bb
You got to let me go - are we human,  or are we dancer?
F            Gm   Eb              F
  My sign is vital,  my hands are cold.
        Bb     Dm                    Gm      Gm
And I'm on my knees, looking for the answer.
       Cm    Eb           Bb        Dm
Are we human,  or are we dancer?

          Eb           F               D..            Gm
Will your system be alright, when you dream of home tonight?
      Eb             Eb                F                   F
There is no message we're receiving, let me know is your heart still beating?

Chorus:
Bb        Dm   Eb           Bb
  Are we human,  or are we dancer?
F            Gm   Eb              F
  My sign is vital,  my hands are cold.

And I'm on my knees, looking for the answer.

    With which strumming ? Can I do it DDUUDU?

  2. +2 for beginners

  3. Im a Grass

    Im so freakin glad my friend showed me the killers

  4. Ruby Sophia

    +2 is the easier chords!

  5. Love it!

  6. Much much easier played 2 half steps up… but sounds amazing either way! I adore this song!

  7. I love this song and these chords sound so good!

  8. No Zoey, it’s ‘dancer’ not ‘denser’. If you look on their website Brandon Flowers explains that it comes from a quote by S Rider Haggard that the US was producing a nation of dancers

  9. Everything sounds awesome but in the chorus it’s “or are we denser?” not “or are we dancer?”
    The rest of it is cool though!

  10. I love. This song

  11. brendaureliano
