// So that's how I play it and how, in my opinion, Rob plays it - he
// sometimes adds some minor things and stuff though, but you'll get the
// idea.
// strumming, etc.

// These videos might be helpful as well

===================================================================

(Florence usually starts the song and Rob joins after the first verse)

#No guitar
There's a drumming noise inside my head
That starts when you're around
I swear that you could hear it
It makes such an all mighty sound
#No guitar
There's a drumming noise inside my head
That throws me to the ground
I swear that you should hear it
It makes such an all mighty sound

#Rob joins now, playing only the upper strings constantly

C
Louder than sirens
Am
Louder than bells
C
Sweeter than heaven
Am
And hotter than hell

# he kinda adds some little and easy "run" on the low e string here to       # change to 
the next chord (Em)

Em (played just like C & Am )
I ran to a tower where the church bells chime

I hoped that they would clear my mind

|--3-2------|

Em
They left a ringing in my ear

But that drum's still beating loud and clear

#note: during the following part Rob slowly starts to play all strings
#      instead of just the upper ones


C
Louder than sirens
Am
Louder than bells
C
Sweeter than heaven
Am
And hotter than hell


C
Louder than sirens, louder than bells
Am
Sweeter than heaven, and hotter than hell
C
Louder than sirens, louder than bells
Am
Sweeter than heaven, and hotter than hell

Chorus

Em                 C
As I move my feet towards your body
    Am            C
I can hear this beat it fills my head up
Em                   C
And gets louder and louder
     Am                  C
It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

(watch the video again to figure out when he exactly changes the chords because I just 
can't be bothered now )



# please watch the video, because it's really hard to write this particular # part down. 
It's pretty similar to the
# one above. He first plays it alone one time (sometimes even twice). When  # Florence 
joins, it matches to the lyrics

beneath)

I run to the river and dive straight in


I pray that the water will drown out the din




C
But as the water fills my mouth
Am
It couldn't wash the echoes out
C
But as the water fills my mouth
Am
It couldn't wash the echoes out


C
I swallow the sound and it swallows me whole
Am
Till there's nothing left inside my soul
C
As empty as that beating drum
Am
But the sound has just begun

Chorus

Em                 C
As I move my feet towards your body
    Am            C
I can hear this beat it fills my head up
Em                   C
And gets louder and louder
     Am                  C
It fills my head up and gets louder and louder



- sudden break -



# Throughout the next part Rob plays the same chord progression over and over again, 
adding some minor variations.
# The chords he plays at the beginning are
#
# C D Em Bm
#
# later on, he starts to add variations, playing Em* instead of Em and Bm*  # instead of Bm.
# Another variation I like to play is : C D Em' Bm*
# So there a lot of ways to play it, please - once again - watch the video  # to figure 
out and be creative when playing.


There's a drumming noise inside my head

That starts when you're around

I swear that you could hear it

It makes such an all mighty sound


There's a drumming noise inside my head

That throws me to the ground

I swear that you should hear it

It makes such an all mighty sound


Louder than sirens, louder than bells

Sweeter than heaven, and hotter than hell

Louder than sirens, louder than bells

Sweeter than heaven, and hotter than heeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllllllll



As I move my feet towards your body

I can hear this beat it fills my head up

And gets louder and louder

It fills my head up and gets louder and louder

Ohhhhh Ohhhhhhhooo Ohhhhooooooo

Ohhooooohohohohohohohoho

End on Em
