Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The song chords include some really awkward finger gymnastics thanks to the root notes,
are not too hard once you learn them.

{define: Dm7 -       xx0211 }
{define: Bbmaj7 -    x13231 }
{define: Bbm(maj7) - x13221 }
{define: Dm -        xx0231 }
{define: Bbm6/Db -   x43021 }
{define: C/G -       332010 } maybe use thumb for root note
{define: Bb -        x13331 } barred chord
{define: Gm7 -       353333 } barred chord
{define: G7/F -      123003 }
{define: Bbm6/F -    1x3023 }
{define: Fm6 -       133131 } barred chord

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
Dm7   Bbmaj7


Bbmaj7
Oh the tears that you weep,
        Bbm(maj7)
for the poor tortured souls,
    Dm
who fall at your feet,
           Bbm6/Db
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,
     G7/F
needs it's sacrifices,
     Bbm6/F
they live for your beauty
    Fm6
and pay for their vices.

   Bbm(maj7)
Love will be the death of,
   G7/F
my lonely soul brothers,
          Bbm6/F
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
