Bastille - Poet: chords

E                       B F#
Obsession it takes control,
E                      B F#
Obsession it eats me whole,
G#m              F#         B
I can't say the words out loud,
G#m                   F#   B
So in a rhyme I wrote you down,
 E                          F# B
Now you'll live through the ages,
       E                     F#  B
I can feel your pulse in the pages.

Chorus:
E B   F#
Whoa Whoa oa
         E          B
I have written you down,
        G#m          F#
Now you will live forever,
    E                  B
And all the world will read you,
    G#m             F#
And you will live forever,
    E             G#m
In eyes not yet created,
    E                    B
On tongues that are not born,
         E          B
I have written you down,
    G#m              F#
Now you will live forever.

Your body lies upon the sheets
Of paper, and words so sweet
I can't say the words
So I wrote you into my verse
Now you live through the ages
I can feel your pulse in the pages

Chorus

E
I have read her with these eyes
        G#m
I have read her with these eyes
        B                 F#
I have held her in these hands...

I have written you down now
You will live forever
The virtue's in the verse and
You will live forever

Chorus

You will live forever...
