Poet     
By Bastille         Capo 4
Recorded in B
Intro (whistling)

C                  G        D
Obsession it takes control,
C                        G D
Obsession it eats me whole,
Em              D         G
I can't say the words out loud,
Em                    D    C
So in a rhyme I wrote you down,
                            D    G
Now you'll live through the ages,
      C                      D       C
I can feel your pulse in the pages.

[Chorus]
           G         D
          Whoa      Whoa oa
        C          G
I have written you down,
        Em           D
Now you will live forever,
    C                  G
And all the world will read you,
    Em               D
And you will live forever,
   C               Em
In eyes not yet created,
   C                    G
On tongues that are not born,
       C           G
I have written you down,
    Em               D
Now you will live forever.

[Whistling: Em G Em D]

     C                  G       D
Your body lies upon the sheets,
C                          G D
Of paper and words so sweet,
Em       D      G
I can't say the words,
Em             D       G
So I wrote you into my verse,
C                           D   G
Now you'll live through the ages,
      C                      D      C
I can feel your pulse in the pages.

[Chorus]
C
I have read her with these eyes,
     Em
I've read her with these eyes,           
       G                      D
I have held her in these hands.

       C             G
I have written you down,         
    Em               D
Now you will live forever,         
    C              G
The virtues in the verse,       
    Em
And you will live forever.

[Chorus]

[Whistling:  G D Bm Em]

Bm               A    G
You will live forever

The B at the end should be a Bm, and I don't think the F should be there
