[Intro & Verse]
F#m7 Esus2sus4 (x4)
    F#m7          Esus2sus4      F#m7             Esus2sus4
The notebook's aside, and every sentence I write
  Dmaj7        B7sus4       B
Swiftly crossed out before long
          F#m7          Esus2sus4   F#m7            Esus2sus4
And every word that I say, feels so foolish the next day
   Dmaj7          B7sus4        B
So I keep my eager tongue on a leash

[Chorus]
      Bm7          E7           Amaj7         Dmaj7
For a fool has his way with his words all the time
         Ebm7-5        E7 (7th)   F#m7 (9th)
Lest the wise man can utter a sound
      Bm7          E7          Amaj7        Dmaj7
So I keep all my words locked away for the day
         Ebm7-5        E7 (7th)    B (hold)
And I sing them when no one's around
        Bm7            E7
Yeah, I sing them when no one's around

[Verse]
F#m7 Esus2sus4 (x4)
         F#m7         Esus2sus4     F#m7           Esus2sus4
Hear the music of the city, see the ladies looking pretty
      Dmaj7          B7sus4         B
It can make you feel light on your feet
        F#m7         Esus2sus4     F#m7              Esus2sus4
Put those words to a song, and you still might get it wrong
       Dmaj7           B7sus4            B
It's always better if you taste the real thing

[Chorus]
      Bm7          E7           Amaj7         Dmaj7
For a fool has his way with his words all the time
         Ebm7-5        E7 (7th)   F#m7 (9th)
Lest the wise man can utter a sound
      Bm7          E7          Amaj7        Dmaj7
So I keep all my words locked away for the day
         Ebm7-5        E7 (7th)    B (hold)
And I sing them when no one's around
        Bm7            E7
Yeah, I sing them when no one's a

-round!
E7 C#7
E7 (7th) D7 B7

[Transition + Brief Key Change]
         Bbm              Ebm           F# (9th)
If I say love, you might think, of your heartache
        Bbm           Ebm      F# (9th)
Or the bliss that a lover can bring

[Chorus Reprise]
         Amaj7          Dmaj7      Ebm7-5
If I say God, you might think, of a man
       E7 (7th)       B
Sitting high, in the clouds
      Bm7           E7
Or a glory that the word fails to

[Outro]
