[Verse 1]
CmEverybody's got a million questions
Abmaj7Everybody wants to know the score
BbWhat you went through
G7susIt's something you should be over now
CmEverybody wants to hear the secrets
Abmaj7That you never told a soul before
BbAnd it's not that strange
G7sus G/B'Cause it wouldn't change what happens anyhow
CmBut you swore to yourself a long time ago
Abmaj7There were some things that people never needed to know
BbThis is one that you keep, that you bury so deep
FNo one can tear it out
[Chorus]
G AmAnd you can't talk about it
F G'Cause you're following a code of silence
AmYou're never gonna lose the anger
F GYou just deal with it in a different way
G/B C C/EAnd you can't talk about it
F GAnd isn't that a kind of madness
G/B CTo be living by a code of silence
F F(2)/AWhen you've really got a lot to say
[Verse 2]
CmYou don't want to lose a friendship
Abmaj7There's nothing that you have to hide
BbAnd a little dirt
G7susCouldn't hurt no one anyway
CmAnd you still have a rage inside you
Abmaj7That you carry with a certain pride
BbIn the only part of a broken heart
G7sus G/BThat you could ever save
CmBut you've been through it once, you know how it ends
Abmaj7You don't see the point of going through it again
BbAnd this ain't the place and this ain't the time
FAnd neither's any other day
[Chorus]
G AmSo you can't talk about it
F G'Cause you're following a code of silence
AmYou're never gonna lose the anger
F GYou just deal with it in a different way
G/B C C/ESo you can't talk about it
F GAnd isn't that a kind of madness
G/B CTo be living by a code of silence
F F(2)/AWhen you've really got a lot to say
[Bridge]
Eb F/Eb Bb/DI know you well enough to tell You've got your reasons
Eb F/Eb Bb/DThat's not the kind of code you're inclined to break
Eb F/Eb Gm7Some things unknown are best left alone forever
Abmaj7And if a vow is what it takes
F(2)Haven't you paid for your mistakes?
[Interlude] Cm Ab/C B/C G/C [Verse 3]
CmAfter the moment passes
Abmaj7And the impulse disappears
BbYou can still hold back
Gm7'Cause you don't crack very easily
CmIt's a time-honored resolution
Abmaj7Because the danger is always near
BbIt's with you now
G7sus G/BBut that ain't how it was supposed to be
CmAnd it's hard to believe after all these years
Abmaj7That it still gives you pain and it still brings tears
BbAnd you feel like a fool, 'cause in spite all your rules
FYou've got a memory
[Chorus]
G AmBut you can't talk about it
F G'Cause you're following a code of silence
AmYou're never gonna lose the anger
F GYou just deal with it in a different way
G/B C C/EBut you can't talk about it
F GAnd isn't that a kind of madness
G/B CTo be living by a code of silence
F F(2)/AWhen you've really got a lot to say
[Repeat and fade] Am G/B C Am Bb2 G Am G/B C C F(2)/A
