{Verse 1}
N/C                                         Am F C E
I never knew what made me do it
Am  D       C    G                          Am F C E
  I just remember it was wrong
Am  D       C    G                          Am F C E
  I've questioned why I put you through it
Am  D       C      G                        Am F C E
  Who would have thought you'd be so strong?

{Bridge 1}
G                                Am            (Riff 1)
  I should have wrapped you up and kept you safe
E                               A
  Instead I turned my back on you

{Chorus 1}
Am F C G

Am     F     C              G               Am F C G
  You can't deny there's a spectre of love 
Am     F     C         G
  He keeps a hawk and dove 
Am     F     C              E             Am  (Riff 2 Three times)  E
  You can't deny there's a spectre of love 

{Verse 2}
Am  D       C    G                          Am F C E
  I keep your picture by my window 
Am  D       C    G                          Am F C E
  You're smiling and you look so young 
Am  D       C    G                          Am F C E
  If I could only speak your language 
Am  D       C           G                   Am F C E
  You'd know that you're the only one 

{Bridge 2}
G                                 Am            (Riff 1)
  I feel I'm stepping out in dead man's shoes
E                               A
  And only you can save me now 

 
{Chorus 2 (without Riff 2)}
Am F C G

Am     F     C              G               Am F C G
  You can't deny there's a spectre of love 
Am     F     C         G
  He keeps a hawk and dove 
Am     F     C              E             F
  You can't deny there's a spectre of love 

{Middle section}
F                   G  Am
  And if the time should come 
F               E      N/C
  This can be undone - and I swear it

  Salvation can be found in times like these 
E                                 A
  I just need you and I've found mine
