Bastille – Icarus chords

Chords
Transpose:
This is an easy song to play, just listen to it to get the rhythm or play it however you 
want around these chords! Pretty sure they're all correct :)

I think the chorus sounds better with a D/F# rather than just a D but either makes sense 
and D is a litter easier to play.


Intro:
Em C DOhhh oh oh oh ohhh ohhh
Em C Dohhh oh oh oh ohhh ohhh
Verse 1:
CLook who's digging their own grave, that is what they all say
