               Current 93: A Gothic Lovesong

     Am         F         G           Em
I'm clicking your fingers for a gothic twilight
     Am         F         G           Em
That actually existed just in your head
  F                       Em
Your fingernails painted black
Or bloodred
     G          G7
I forget

  F                 G
And your fake-leather volumes
  C           Am
Jabbering on hell
  F         G                   Em            Am
Manifest decadence was what you hoped to exhail
 F               G             Am
Your eyes tried so hard to glitter

    Am           F
A star-snuffing black
     G               Em
So you opened your books
    Am            F
And you opened your legs
     G             Em
And so opened your heart
     F              Em
And let in the badness
You claimed
     G          G7
As your friend

   Am             F
With un-angels hovering
    G              Em
Like flies round the orchard
   Am             F
That had covered your soul
    G              Em
Their empire increasing
     F          Em
And your country
     F           G        G7
Deserted by yourself

      F      G          C            Am
The bells of St. Mary call us to remember
      F      G       Em
That life is with end
      F                 G
And the gestures can kill us
      C         Am
Moreover destroy
      F        G              Am
And there is one judgment only

    Am               F
Your letters came daily
     G               Em
In French or in German
    Am               F
But they meant to me nothing
     G               Em
I caught the slow cords
   F     Em     F         G       G7
And dry ice fogging your mind

    F    G     C       Am
I see all too clearly now
    F    G         Em
Why you could be discarded
    F                 G
And though I could pray for you
    C            Am
I probably shan't
    F       G         Em
Having had my cup filled up
With your lies
          G              C       Am
And your makeup
    F        G
You were nothing
    C                  Am
Thinking you're something

    F    G          C                     Am
And nonetheless I still write this gothic lovesong
    F    G
A sign to myself
    C                 Am
And the memory of my past
    F    G           C          Am
I still write this gothic lovesong
    F    G
A sign to myself
    C                 Am
And the memory of my past
    F          G            Am
And a way to shut out your face

(I'm not saying this is great, but it works - the original is played on the piano, as 
well know. Enjoy, and thanks from the heart Steven Stapleton!)

Pretty good!
Just make shure to use capo on second fret and barred chords.
