    [C] Love of mine, someday [Am] you will die,
    but I'll be [F] close behind; I'll follow [C] you into the [G] dark.
    No [C] blinding light, or tunnels to [Am] gates of white,
    just our [F] hands held tight, waiting [C] for the hint of a [G] spark.

    ( Chorus
    If [Am] heaven and hell de- [C] cide that they [F] both are satis- [C] fied,
    il- [Am] luminate the [C] noes on their [G] vacancy signs.
    If there's [Am] no one be- [C] side you when your [E] soul em- [Am] barks
    then [F] I'll follow [Fm] you into the [C] dark. )

    In Catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule,
    I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black.
    And I held my tongue as she told me "Son,
    fear is the heart of love". So I never went back.


    You and me have seen everything to see
    from Bangkok to Calgary, and the soles of your shoes
    are all worn down. The time for sleep is now
    but it's nothing to cry about 'cause we'll hold each other soon
    in the [Am] blackest of [F] rooms.

    I'll follow you into the dark x2
