                             The Knife - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Tuning: EADGBE


This was bonus track of their 2013 album 'Specter at the Feast' but apparently it was 
written a few years ago (2008 or 2009..)

You can find the song on Youtube here

Listen to it and you will get the timing and throw in the occassional chord variation too.
I might have a few mistakes with the chords and the lyrics but I think it is pretty close.
They tend to change lyrics sometimes with live performances too and you can use an 
Fmajor 7 if you think it sounds better than F.


Intro -
C   C  C   C
Am  Am  F   F
C   C   Em  Em
Am  Am  F   F
C   G   C   C



C
You twist the knife

C
And I'll take the bullet

Am
You start the fire

        F
And the world then turns for you

         C
Isn't it right?

           Em
Isn't it a crime?

         Am       C     F
Isn't it cruel to be so kind?

                       G                      C
But it's all an act of love and it leaves you blind

                    G         C
And I'm not here to reason or deny

                  G          C
I buried you in a poverty of time

    F                G
Sometimes there's no other way

    Am                          F
You said the things you need to say

       C
At the greatest price

       G
Over a meaningless fight

          Am      C     F
Didn't it used to be so fine?

C                      G               C
Sometimes you need the dark to see the light

C
You roll the dice

C
And I play the fool

Am
You turn the tide

        F
But the storm steps through your eyes

         C
Isn't it right?

              Em
Or is it your pride?

           Am     C     F
Isn't it cruel to be so kind?

C                    G               C
But some temptations promise you paradise

                    G            C
And I'm not here to listen or confide

                           G                     C
And I've paid my debt to a world that bleeds you dry

F                    G
Sometimes there's no other way

Am                      F
You said the things you need to say

C
At the greatest price

        G
Over a meaningless fight

           Am     C       F
Didn't it used to feel so right?

C                      G               C
Sometimes you need the dark to see the light

Fourth line should read 'and the world burns down for you'. Otherwise great.

Great that someone tabbed this ccol song. Thanks
I think line 8 needs a C chord above the word "all"
