Intro: Dm  F

F                  Bb
-Say what you mean-
Bb
-Out loud-

Verse 1:
Dm
I still taste your presence
F                        Bb
Once sweet but it turned sour
Bb
Tried to shake your indifference
Bb
But it's too late now
Dm
I hear you in the quiet
F                         Bb
I see you when I'm in the dark
Bb
You just couldn't fight for this
Bb
But it's not your fault

Chorus:
Dm             Bb     F
Say what you mean out loud
Dm             Bb            F           C
Drowning in silence when I'm lost in the crowd
Dm                           Bb
'Cause every sweet thing you never speak
   F             C
Is deafening, never knowing what could be
Dm           Bb       F
Wish I could show you how
               C
But you're just a ghost now

Verse 2:
Dm
Your laughter haunts me
F                    Bb
Like a ringing in my ear
Bb
You left me long ago
Bb
You're still everywhere
Dm
I reach out for you
F                      Bb
I'm desperate for your warmth
Bb
Can you tell me where we went wrong?
Bb
At least tell me just to move on

Chorus:
Dm           Bb       F
Say what you mean out loud
Dm           Bb              F           C
Drowning in silence when I'm lost in the crowd
Dm                          Bb
'Cause every sweet thing you never speak
   F                C
Is deafening, never knowing what could be
Dm           Bb       F
Wish I could show you how
              C
But you're just a ghost now
Dm          Bb
You're just a ghost now
F                 C
But you're just a ghost, ghost now
Dm                Bb
But you're just a ghost, ghost now, now
F
But you're just a

Bridge:
Dm                  F
It's time to let it go
   C            Bb
You left me all alone
Dm       F                                 C             Bb
I wanna feel your heartbeat but it doesn't beat for me no more
Bb
No
Dm                  F
It's time to let it go
   C            Bb
You left me all alone
Dm                         F
It's holding me down, it's burning me out
    C                           Bb
I'm begging for some but I can't bring you back now

Chorus:
Dm           Bb       F
Say what you mean out loud
Dm          Bb               F           C
Drowning in silence when I'm lost in the crowd
Dm                          Bb
'Cause every sweet thing you never speak
   F                C
Is deafening, never knowing what could be
Dm           Bb       F
Wish I could show you how
                  C
But you're just a ghost now
Dm             Bb
You're just a ghost now
F                 C
But you're just a ghost, ghost now
