A           E                     Fm
Well how do you know where you're going
         D                       A
when you don't know where you've been
             E                     Fm
You hide the shame that you're not showing
                         A
and you won't let anyone in
          E               Fm
A crowded street can be a quiet place
     D               A
when you're walking alone
           E                     Fm
So now you think that you're the only one
            A       Fm
who doesn't have to try
              A       E
and you won't have to fail
Fm                  A
You're so afraid to fly
       Fm              E
then I guess you never will

   
    D       A        E
You hide behind your walls
      Fm       A 
cause maybe he never hurts
D              A                  E
Forgetting that there's something more
     
than just knowing better
D       A              E
Your mistakes do not define you now
     Fm       A          D
They tell you who you're not
              A                     E
You've got to live this life you're given
                                  A
like it's the only one you've got

         E                 Fm    
The memories have left you broken
         D                A
and the scars have never healed
         E               Fm
The emptiness in you is growing
                        A
with so little left to feel
                 E                Fm
You're scared to look back on the days before
       D                 A
You're too tired to move on
            E                     Fm
And now you think that you're the only one
            A       Fm
who doesn't have to try
              A       E
and you won't have to fail
Fm                  A     
You're so afraid to fly
      Fm              E
and I guess you never will

I think the Fm should actually be an F#m?

[Verse 1:]

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
D
One who doesn't

[Pre Chorus:]

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

[Chorus:]

D A E
You hide behind your walls
F#m A
Of maybe nevers
D A E
Forgetting that there's something more
F#m A
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
A
Like it's the only one you've got

[Verse 2:]

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

[Pre Chorus:] X 1

[Chorus:] X 1

[Bridge:]

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

[Chorus:] X 2
