A       E                    F#m
How do you know where you're going
          D                       A
When you don't know where you've been
               E                    F#m
You hide the shame that you're not showing
         D               A
And you won't let anyone in
             E             F#m
A crowded street can be a quiet place
      D               A
When you're walking alone
              E                   F#m
And now you think that you're the only
One who doesn't

Have to try
And you won't have to fail
If you're afraid to fly
         A              E
Then i guess you never will

     D      A         E
You hide behind your walls
   F#m    A
Of maybe nevers
D            A                     E
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
D        A              E
Your mistakes do not define you now
     F#m        A         D
They tell you who you're not
               A                     E
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

Memories have left you broken
And the scars have never healed
The emptiness in you is growing
But so little left to fill
You're scared to look back on the days before
You're too tired to move on
And now you think that you're the only one who doesn't

Have to try
And you won't have to fail
If you're afraid to fly
Then I guess you never will


F#m D A   E
        What would it take
F#m D A     E
        To get you to say that I'll try
F#m D A      E
        And what would you say if
D             A                E
This was the last day of your life
