Cm         Bb               Eb 
I'll never tell you what I saw
Ab          Eb         Bb     
Or how it made me breathe.
Cm         Bb               Eb 
I'll never repeat what I heard
Ab          Eb         Bb    
How long it took me to leave.
Cm         Bb               Eb 
I'll never tell you what I saw
Ab          Eb         Bb     
Or how it made my smile freeze

            Cm          G                  Eb  -  Abmaj7 - Eb 
Cause this world is a whirlwind, but I'm holding that trapeze
     Fm         Bb               Eb
And I'll never tell you what I saw

Cm         Bb               Eb 
I'll never tell you who I loved
Ab          Eb         Bb
Or how they made me free
Cm         Bb               Eb 
I'll never tell you how I slept
Ab          Eb         Bb
Back when I was 15
Cm         Bb               Eb
I thought that I could just forget
Ab          Eb         Bb
The bricks that have built me

            Cm          G                  Eb  -  Abmaj7 - Eb
But this world is a whirlwind and I'm holding that trapeze
     Fm         Bb               Eb
And I'll never tell you who I loved

       Ab                 Bb 
But if I could tell you one thing
        Ebadd9     Bb         Cm
I would tell you I'm not leaving
   Ab                 Bb 
If I could show you one thing
   Ebadd9    Bb          Cm
All my mistakes have shaped me
Ab
Into who I am
Ab 
And who I am just wants to make you home

Cm Bb Eb Ab Eb Bb
oooh oooh ooh oooh 

Cm         Bb               Eb
I'll never tell you why I drive
Ab          Eb         Bb
Into the night and back again
Cm         Bb               Eb
I hardly speak of my hometown
Ab          Eb         Bb
My little hands in the cement
Cm         Bb               Eb
I'll never tell you what I saw, 
Ab          Eb         Bb
close the door, swallow the key 

            Cm          G                  Eb  -  Abmaj7 - Eb
But this world is a whirlwind and I'm holding that trapeze
            Cm          G                  Eb  -  Abmaj7 - Eb
Ya this world keeps on turning, love is carried in a sling
            Cm          G                  Eb  -  Abmaj7 - Eb
Ya this world is a whirlwind and I'm holding that trapeze.
     Fm         Bb               Eb
So I'll never tell you what I saw
