Say what you need to say (8x)

Fightin' with the shadows in your head
               Bb       Eb      Gm      F
Living out the same old moment
                 Bb     Eb         Gm      F
Knowing youd be better off instead...  if you could only

Cm       Eb             F

Have no fear for giving over
Cm          Eb              F
You better know that in the end

Its better to say too much
              F
Than never to say what you need to say again
