F F                     Dm Dm
Love of mine some day you will die,
A# A#
But I'll be close behind.
F F C C
I'll follow you into the dark.

F F Dm Dm
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white.
A# A#
Just our hands clasped so tight,
F F C C
Waiting for the hint of a spark.

[Chorus]
Dm Dm F F
If heaven and hell decide
A# A# F F
That they both are satisfied
Dm Dm F F C C C7 C7
Illuminate the "NO"s on their vacancy signs.
Dm Dm F F
If there's no one beside you
A7 A7 Dm Dm
When your soul embarks,
A# A# A#m A#m F F
Then I'll follow you into the dark.


In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule.
I got my knuckles brusied by a lady in black.
And I held my toungue as she told me
"Son fear is the heart of love."
So I never went back.

[Chorus]
If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the "NO"s on their vacancy signs.
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.


You and me have seen everything to see,
From Bangkok to Calgary. And the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down. The time for sleep is now.
It's nothing to cry about,
F F C C
Cause we'll hold each other soon
A# A#
In the blackest of rooms.

[Chorus]
If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs.

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark.
A# A# C C F F
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

Since this song is in the key of F, the A# should all be Bb.

About this song

"I Will Follow You Into the Dark" is the third single from Death Cab for Cutie's album Plans. It's an acoustic ballad performed solo, by frontman Ben Gibbard. It was recorded with a single microphone, and there is no overdubbing in the song. It was released as a single in the UK as a two-part 7" single (one on green vinyl, the other on "mustard" colored vinyl) and as a CD single. The I Follow You Into The Dark Songfacts states that Gibbard told VH1's Storytellers that Gibbard penned the song in a burst of creativity in 15 miniutes at a Seattle studio, which he kept solely for songwriting.
