BRANDON FLOWERS - Can't Deny My Love

This song is from the album The Desired Effect(2015), released on May 18, 2015.
I enjoyed the retro feel of this song. The snare and the background instruments brought me back to those olden golden years that produced some of the classic songs in history. This song felt eerily similar to that of that era, but the modern element could also be found in this song. The vocals felt interesting and the background vocals brought in a great feel.

[INTRO] Em
[VERSE]
Em                            C
Open up, till the night our bed
C                      Em
Is underneath a heavy moon
Em
Cast a doubt like a shadow
    C                                Em
Walking through the corners of the room

[PRE-CHORUS]
C                            D         Em
I always thought I have a full tank to go
Em
(but not tonight, you're not alone)
C                         D        Em
I always thought I'd find my own way

C
(What's going on in your head now?
D
Maybe something I said?
   Em                                   D
I know that you've been living in the past
         C
What's going in your head now?
D                   C
Maybe something I said?

[CHORUS]
C                      D
It's driving me crazy, and you can try to lie
          Em
But you're not gonna, not gonna deny
           Bm                            C
No you're not gonna, not gonna deny my love
                         D
And you can run to the hillside
D
And you can close your eyes
                Em
But you're not gonna, not gonna deny
                Bm                      C
No you're not gonna, not gonna deny my love
D                   Em Bm C D Em
You can't deny my love

[VERSE]
Em
The eyes of God are watching over us
C                            Em
So we don't break the golden rules
Em
The seven seas, have we learned
             C                 Em
Or are we sailing on a ship of fools?

[PRE-CHORUS]
C                            D         Em
I always thought I have a full tank to go
Em
(but not tonight, you're not alone)
C                         D        Em
I always thought we'd get there someday

[CHORUS]
C                      D
It's driving me crazy, and you can try to lie
          Em
But you're not gonna, not gonna deny
           Bm                            C
No you're not gonna, not gonna deny my love
                         D
And you can run to the hillside
D
And you can close your eyes
                Em
But you're not gonna, not gonna deny
                Bm                      C
No you're not gonna, not gonna deny my love
D                   Em Bm C D Em
You can't deny my love

[BRIDGE]
Em
When you close your eyes, tell me what you see
Em
Locked up in your room is there any room for me?
Em
In the spoils of your mercy
           Am
In the reverence of your bed
          Bm
In the cradle of the morning
      C
What was it that you said?

[CHORUS]
          Em
But you're not gonna, not gonna deny
           Bm                            C
No you're not gonna, not gonna deny my love
                         D
And you can run to the hillside
D
And you can close your eyes
                Em
But you're not gonna, not gonna deny
                Bm                      C
No you're not gonna, not gonna deny my love
D                   Em Bm C D Em
You can't deny my love
