    A lot of these chords you may want to experiment with, maybe they sound better leaving
    some of the high string notes and just concentrating on the root notes to change the feel
    the chord. Some of these very jazz-style chords seem to be transcribed directly from
    to guitar, making some of the hand shapes very difficult indeed, but they are 100%
    if you want it to sound just like the song.
    (low bass "heartbeat" rhythm at very start is a very low Bb)
    start of song alternates between these two chords
    Dm7Bbmaj7
     
    Bbmaj7
    Oh the tears that you weep, 
    Bbm
    (maj7) 
    for the poor tortured souls,
    Dm
    who fall at your feet, 
    Bbm6C#
    with their love begging bowls, 
    Dm
    all the clerks and the tailors, 
    C/G
    the sharks and the sailors, 
    Bb
    all good at thier trades but, 
    Gm7
    they'll always be failures. 
    Bbm
    (maj7) 
    Love needs it's martyrs,
    G7F
    needs it's sacrifices, 
    Bbm6F
    they live for your beauty 
    Fm6
    and pay for their vices. 
    Bbm
    (maj7) 
    Love will be the death of,
    G7F
    my lonely soul brothers, 
    Bbm6F
    but their spirit shall live on in 
    Fm6
    the hearts of all lovers. 
    The remainder of the song follows same pattern, including guitar outro.

    other lyrics:
    Alms for the poor
    For the wretched desciples
    And the love that they swore
    With their hearts on the bible
    Beseeching the honor
    To sit at your table
    And feast on your holiness
    As long as they're able
    Love needs its martyrs
    Needs its sacrifices
    They live for your beauty
    And pay for their vices
    Love will be the death of
    My lonely soul brothers
    But their spirit shall live on in
    The hearts of all lovers
    Your holding court
    With your lips and your smile
    Your body's a halo
    Their minds are on trial
    Sure as adam is eve
    Sure as jonah turned whaler
    They're crooked love thieves
    And you are their jailor
    Love needs its martyrs
    Needs its sacrifices
    They live for your beauty
    And pay for their vices
    Love will be the death of
    My lonely soul brothers
    But their spirit shall live on in
    The hearts of all others
    Love will be the death of
    My lonely soul brothers
    But their spirit shall live on in
    The hearts of all others
