Capo 4th fret

    G
    We took a vow in summertime
                                     Cmaj7/G
    Now we find ourselves in late December
    G
    I believe that New Year's Eve
                                                Cmaj7/G
    Will be the perfect tim for their great surrender
                      Cmaj7/G
    But they don't remember

        PRE-CHORUS:
        D             D6    D
        Anger wants a voice
        C                 Cmaj7
        Voices wanna sing
        D             D6    D
        Singers harmonize
                  C                   Cmaj7
        'Til they can't hear anything
        D                  D6   D
        Thought that I was free
             C                    Cmaj7
        From all that questioning
            D                    D6   D
        But every time a problem ends
         C
        Another one begins

CHORUS:
        D              G                 C
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
        Cmaj7  D                G                 C     Cmaj7
Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
   D               G                C                Am
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
              D             G                   C
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

    D        G      C
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
D        G      C
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
D        G      C   Am
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
              D             G                   C
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

        G
    Within the halls of power lies
                                                Cmaj7/G
    A nervous heart that beats like a Young Pretender's
      G
    Beneath these velvet gloves I hide
                                           Cmaj7/G
    The shameful crooked hands of a money lender
                      Cmaj7/G
    'Cause I still remember

        REPEAT PRE-CHORUS:
