You Dont Know How Beautiful You Are Chords
EP: The Wonderlands 2015
Key: C (Capo 5th fret to play G form)
Tempo: 91 BPM

INTRO: F, C (x2)

VERSE
F                                   C
   We learn to wear these masks so young
F                                      C
   Like a prison that keeps joy from getting through
F                                  C
   And an angry silence grips our tongues
        F                               C
These weapons and our walls become our tombs
    F                                C
Yes, we’re the kids who’ve seen the darkness
F                          C
   Always looking for the light
Am                                 F
   You fall in love and then the rains come down
(F*)                         C
   And only part of you survives

CHORUS
         F                   C
Come surrender your hidden scars
            F                 C
Leave your weapons where they are
              F       
You’ve been hiding
       Am        
But I know your wounded heart
           F                          C
And you don’t know how beautiful you are

VERSE II
F                              C
   I’m tired of hiding who I really am
F                       C
   Underneath these alibis
Am                         F
   I want to know who you really are
(F*)                           C
   I want to meet you here tonight, yes

F                              C
   We’re not born with these defenses
F                               C
   We’re not destined for this pain
Am                                F
   We hide ourselves and put the fig leaves on
       (F*)                            C
But a mask could never cover up this shame

CHORUS II
                 F                  C
And where we’re headed is a world apart
                F                     C
From where we started, we’ve come so far
               F
I’ll take my chances
        Am
Honey, you can have my heart
       F                                C
Cause you don’t know how beautiful you are

BRIDGE
             Am G/B-C, F, G
Love Surrender
(Let your walls come down) (x2)

        F                      C
Future gardens from all this rain
         F                    C
Future flowers from present pain
       Am                     F
We’re bound together and our lives are bound to change
                                  C
You don’t know how beautiful you are

CHORUS III
              F                  C
And all the ashes of all these dreams
               F                 C
I’ve seen the beauty of fallen leaves
             F            Am                      
And someday maybe we’ll find out what it means
              F                        C
And you’ll find out how beautiful you are


Personal Note: 
I placed an extra chord as a personal opinion. 
The extra C I placed there (F*) is still C. 
But I've seen Jon playing a Fadd2 
(An easy form of playing that would be: x 2 2 0 1 0). 
But to me sounds like an F/G. 
You can play it however you think it sounds.
But I thought you would like to know this. :)

Personal Note: 
I placed an extra chord as a personal opinion. 
The extra C I placed there (C*) is still C. 
But I've seen Jon playing a Cadd2 
(An easy form of playing that would be: x 3 0 0 1 0). 
But to me sounds like an C/D. 
You can play it however you think it sounds.
But I thought you would like to know this. :)

The way Jon plays these chords: 
C: Cadd9 (x 3 2 0 2 2) 
Em: Em7 (0 2 2 0 2 2)
