[Intro]
Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
Dsus4 D Dsus2 D

[Verse]
Dsus4             D
I've never talked back,
Dsus2             D
I've never slept late,
Dsus4             D
I've never sat down
Dsus2             D
when told to stand straight
Gmaj7
I've never let go
F#m7              Bm7
and gone with the flow,
E7sus4         E7            Asus4  A7
and don't even know, really, why.

Dsus4             D
I've never asked questions,
Dsus2             D
or taken a dare.
Dsus4             D
I've never worn clothes
Dsus2             D
that might make people stare.
Gmaj7
I've never rebelled,
F#m7              Bm7
or stood up and yelled,
Cmaj7                       A7sus4  A7
or even just held my head high.

[Chorus]
F#m7           Bm7      Em7  A7
And all of the feelings unspoken,
F#7sus4    F#7    Gmaj7
all of the truths unsaid,
Em7                D/F#
they're all I have left
Bbmaj7        A7sus4
of the life I never led.

Dsus4 D Dsus2 D (x2)

[Verse]
Dsus4             D
I've never gone surfing,
Dsus2             D
Or ran with a crowd,
Dsus4             D
Or danced on a table
Dsus2             D
Or laughed much too loud
Gmaj7
I've never quite dared
F#m7              Bm7
to leave myself bared -
E7sus4         E7            Asus4  A7
I've just been too scared I might fall.

Dsus4             D
I've never seen Paris,
Dsus2             D
swum naked, been kissed.
Dsus4             D
I've never quite realised
Dsus2             D
just how much I've missed.
Gmaj7
And what did I get,
F#m7              Bm7
for hedging each bet?
Cmaj7                       A7sus4  A7
Another regret, and that's all.

[Chorus]
F#m7           Bm7      Em7  A7
And all of the wishes unasked for,
F#7sus4    F#7    Gmaj7
All of the needs unfed -
Em7                D/F#
They're all that remain
Bbmaj7        A7sus4
of the life I never led.

Dsus4 D Dsus2 D

[Bridge]
F#m
And now...
Gadd9
now that you've given me
F#m/A                  Bm7
one little taste of it -
    E7sus4       E7
And now...
A7sus      A7          Dsus2 D Dsus4 D
now that I know what I know -
     Bm
Well how...
F#/A              D/A                   G#m7
how can I go on ignoring the waste of it?
      F#m7
After all of the years
          Bm5         Bm7
that I've clung to my fears.
          Cadd9           Gm/Bb
Won't you help me let go?
            A7sus4        A
Help me let go!

[Verse]
Dsus4             D
I want to be brave,
Dsus2             D
I want to be strong.
Dsus4             D
I want to believe
Dsus2             D
I'm where I belong.
Gmaj7
To stand up and say
Dadd4/F#         Bm7
"I'm seizing the day"
   E7sus4   E7           Asus4   C7sus4
To not just obey, but to choose.

Fsus4         F
And I may not surf,
Fsus2         F
I may not see France.
Fsus4         F
but I have to know
Fsus2         F
I still have the chance.
Bbmaj7
And maybe I'll make
Am7           Dm7
a painful mistake.
Ebmaj7                         C7sus4   C7
It's mine though, to take or refuse.

[Chorus]
Am7            Dm7          Gm7   C7
And all of the doors yet to open,
A7sus4     A7    Bbmaj7
all of the rooms ahead -
Gm7               Am7
They're beckoning bright,
Bbmaj7    Am7
scary and new -
Gm7              Am7
But I'm standing tall,
Dm7             G7
and I'm walking through.
Bb/C               Am7/C
What's gone may be gone,
Bb/C           Am7/C
but I won't go on
        Am7           C/D
playing dead!
Gm7                F/A
It's time to start living
Dbmaj7     C7sus4  C7
the life I never
Fsus4  F  Fsus2  F  Bbsus2/D  Dm7  C7sus4    F
led.
