Verse 1:
Am/G             C/Dm7         C   G
I have          a tale        to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
            I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall

Chorus 1:
 Fsus2             C
A man can tell a thousand lies
 Fsus2                   Em
I've learned my lesson well
      Em7      Fsus2           C       Am       (F)  G
Hope I live to tell The secret I have learned, 'till then
        Am  Asus2  G9   F  Fsus2
It will burn inside of me

Coda: Asus2  Esus4  Csus4  G2  Fsus2

Verse 2:
Am/G             C/Dm7         C   G
I know       where beauty      lives
I've seen it once, I know the warm she gives
        The light that you could never see
It shines inside, you can't take that from me

Chorus 1:
 Fsus2             C
A man can tell a thousand lies
 Fsus2                   Em

      Em7      Fsus2           C       Am       (F)  G
Hope I live to tell The secret I have learned, 'till then
        Am  Asus2  G9   F  Fsus2
It will burn inside of me

Chorus 2:
 Fsus2             C
The truth is never far behind
 Fsus2              Em
You kept it hidden well
      Em7      Fsus2           C       Am       (F)  G
If I live to tell The secret I knew then Will I
      Am      G9       F    Fsus2
ever have the chance again

Coda: Asus2  Esus4  Csus4  G2  Fsus2

Bridge:
      F         G            Asus2                 Asus2(G)
I ran away, I'd never have the strength - To go very far
            F           G            Asus2      F
How would they hear the beating of my heart
            F        G           Asus2                 Asus2(G)
Will it grow cold, the secret that I hide, will I grow old
              F                G9                   Am
How will they hear, When will they learn, How will they know
