Intro: 4/4 
             C                          G
1. When the days are cold___  And the cards all fold         
            Am                       F
   And the saints we see___ Are all made of gold       
                C                        G
   When your dreams all fail___ And the ones we hail
            Am                       F
   Are the worst of all___ And the blood's run stale

           C                     G                         Am
Pre Chorus: I want to hide the truth___ I want to shel-ter you
                                   F                               C
            But with the beast in-side___ There's no-where we can hide
                                 G                            Am 
            No mat-ter what we breed___ We still are made of greed
                                 F                           C
            This is my king-dom come___ This is my king-dom come

                          G                     Am
Chorus: When you feel my heat___ Look in-to my eyes
                               F                             C
        It's where my de-mons hide___ It's where my de-mons hide
                        G                    Am
        Don't get too close___ It's dark in-side
                               F                             C
        It's where my de-mons hide___ It's where my de-mons hide

           C                         G
2. At the cur-tain's call___ Is the last of all
              Am                        F
   When the lights fade out___ All the sin-ners crawl
            C                         G
   So they dug your grave___ And the mas-que-rade
             Am                      F
   Will come ca-lling out___ At the mess you made

           C                       G                     Am
Pre Chorus: Don't want to let you down___ But I am hell bound
                                    F                              C
            Though this is all for you___ Don't want to hide the truth
                                 G                            Am    
            No mat-ter what we breed___ We still are made of greed
                                 F                           C
            This is my king-dom come___ This is my king-dom come

                          G                    Am
Chorus: When you feel my heat___ Look into my eyes
                                F                            C
        It's where my de-mons hide___ It's where my de-mons hide
                        G                    Am
        Don't get too close___ It's dark in-side
                               F                             C
        It's where my de-mons hide___ It's where my de-mons hide

                                G                        Am  
Bridge: They say it's what you make___ I say it's up to fate
                           F                        C
        It's wo-ven in my soul___ I need to let you go
                                  G                            Am  
        Your eyes they shine so bright___ I want to save that life
                              F                          C
        I can't es-cape this now___ Un-less you show me how

                          G                    Am
Chorus: When you feel my heat___ Look into my eyes
                               F                             C
        It's where my de-mons hide___ It's where my de-mons hide
                        G                    Am
        Don't get too close___ It's dark in-side
                               F                             C
        It's where my de-mons hide___ It's where my de-mons hide

Notes

  • Level of Ease: Easy with capo. I have used the version in C Major so that beginners can play... no barre chords.
  • For more advanced players there is the option to play in the original key of E♭Major and also the option to play power chords esp. for anyone wanting to use distortion.

    If you are playing in the original key, you will notice the B♭add4 chord option (formula 1-3-4-5)... not to be mistaken for a B♭sus4 (1-4-5). There are 2 versions to choose from depending on your preference. It is an interesting sounding chord which you may like. It can also we written as B♭(4)
  • The same applies to capo users with Aadd4 replacing A and Gadd4 replacing G respectively... they sound great.
  • Here is the transposition for all 3 keys...
E♭ Major E♭ B♭Or B♭(4) Cm A♭
E♭ Major using Power Chords E♭5 B♭Or B♭(4) Cm A♭5
Capo - 1st fret: D Major D A OR A(4) Bm G
Capo - 3rd fret: C Major C G OR G(4) Am F
