Mumford And Sons - Lover Of The Light chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I'm just showing the chords for people who don't want to play this with a capo. 
Personally, I don't think putting a capo on the second fret is necessary to play 
this song, for it doesn't make any of the chords easier. Also, I play an A/C# as 
x4222x (I assume the rest of the chords are self-explanatory).


  D         A                          D
And in the middle of the night, I may watch you go
 D               A                                  D
There'll be no value in the strength of walls that I'll have grown
                 G              Bm           Bm  A    G
There'll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
         A    D             A  D
But I'll be yours if you'll be mine

                D         G        D
Stretch out my life and pick the seams out
               D          G       A        Bm  
Take what you like, but close my ears and eyes
  G        D      A  D      A D           
Watch me crumble over and over 

D                      G          D
I have done wrong, so build your tower
 D                   G      A          Bm 
But call me home and I will build a throne
    G        D        A  D  A D
And wash my eyes out never again

Chorus:

D                       G 
But love the one you hold
                  A 
And I'll be your goal
                Bm 
To have and to hold
                   D
A lover of the light

Verse: 

D                   G         D
Skin too tight and eyes like marbles
D                    G       A     Bm
You spin me high so watch me as I glide
G         D       A D     A D 
Before I tumble homeward homeward

D                     G       D
I know I've tried, I was not stable
D                   G       A        Bm
Flawed my pride, I miss my sanguine eyes
    G       D           A  D         A D
So hold my hands up, breathe in an' breathe out 

Chorus:
  
D                       G 
But love the one you hold
                  A 
And I'll be your goal
                Bm 
To have and to hold
                   D
A lover of the light

Bm D (x2)

  D         A                         D
And in the middle of the night, I may watch you go
 D                A                                D
There'll be no value in the strength of walls that I'll have grown
                 G              Bm           Bm  A    G
There'll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
F                        Bm            Bm     A    G
You may not trust the promises of the change I'll show
          A  D              A D
But I'll be yours if you'll be mine

So love the one you hold

And I will be your goal

To have and to hold
