Intro: Cm Ab Bb Ab

Verse:
                Cm
I don't want to talk
                      Ab 
Cos it will only hurt more
                Cm
I don't want to bring it up again 
                 F    Ab
Cos it hurt like hell before

Verse:
                Cm
You know me too well
            Eb                 Ab
You make my head spin and I'll just say something wrong
                      Cm
You pull me out of my shell
         Bb                    Ab
And then hate me when I'm done

Pre-Chorus:
           Bb              
But if the rain keeps falling
                                  Ab
And you can't see the tears in my eyes
             Bb
They say the night is daunting
                             Ab Eb Fm
But we all need somewhere to hiiiiide

Chorus:
               Cm          Eb         Ab
So it could be better if I kept it to myself
            Cm          Eb              Ab
It could be better if I left it on the shelf
Bb                                    Ab
Before I go and say something I don't mean
            Cm          Eb              Ab
It could be better if I kept it to myself

Verse:
                Cm
Let's wipe the slate clean
                       Ab
And I'll bottle it up again
                              Cm
It's just how I've always been
         Ab
Even without you

Pre-Chorus:
           Bb
Cos if the rain stops falling
                                     Ab
And you start to see the tears in my eyes
           Bb
And if the night stops calling
                               Ab Gm Fm
And we won't have somewhere to hiiiiide

Chorus:
               Cm          Eb         Ab
So it could be better if I kept it to myself
            Cm          Eb              Ab
It could be better if I left it on the shelf
Bb                                    Ab
Before I go and say something I don't mean
            Cm          Eb              Ab
It could be better if I kept it to myself

Bridge:
           Ab                  Fm
I'd rather forget than have to forgive
           Cm                          Bb
I'd rather lose it than live with this memory
              Ab                         Fm
Don't want to accept the things that you did
             Cm                      Bb
I try not to show it but you know it hurts me
           Ab                  Fm
I'd rather forget than have to forgive
           Cm                          Bb
I'd rather lose it than live with this memory
              Ab                         Fm
Don't want to accept the things that you did
                Cm             Bb
Cos you know it hurts me, yeah

Chorus:
Ab                                    Cm     Bb
Before I go and say something I don't mean
Ab                                    Cm     Bb
Before I go and say something I don't mean
               Cm          Eb         Ab
So it could be better if I kept it to myself
            Cm          Eb              Ab
It could be better if I left it on the shelf
Bb                                    Ab
Before I go and say something I don't mean
            Cm          Eb              Ab
It could be better if I kept it to myself
