Words Fail
No capo 

[Verse]
G                               F
I never meant to make it such a mess
G                             C
I never thought that it would go this far
G         C          Cm
So I just stand here sorry
G             A
Searching for something to say
C
Something to say
        C   D       G  C
Words fail, words fail
C               D      G   
There's nothing I can say

[Instrumental]
G    C
G    C

[Verse]
G                            C
I guess I thought I could be part of this
G                         C
I never had this kind of thing before
G           C    Cm
I never had that perfect girl
G    A                    C  
Who somehow could see the good part of me

[Verse]
G                       C
I never had the dad who stuck it out
G                   C
No corny jokes or baseball gloves
G         C         Cm
No mom who just was there
G                 A                D
'Cause mom was all that she had to be

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                  C
That's not a worthy explanation
G               D
I know there is none
Em               Bm                 Am          D      Am
Nothing can make sense of all these things I've done

[Chorus]
G       C   D       G 
Words fail, words fail
C       F
There's nothing I can say
       G                  C
Except sometimes, you see everything you wanted
F   G                  C
And sometimes, you see everything you wish you had
F                     G            Am    G
And it's right there, right there, right there
   C
In front of you
         F         C
And you want to believe it's true
          F
So you... make it true
C                        F
And you think maybe everybody wants it
F
And needs it
C
a little bit 
F
too

[Instrumental]
Fm  A#  F  A#  C# C  G  
A#

[Bridge]
F               A#
This was just a sad invention
F                 C    
It wasn't real, I know
Dm 
But we were happy
Am                 A#
I guess I couldn't let that go
                   F
I guess I couldn't give that up
                       Dm
I guess I wanted to believe
                    C
'Cause if I just believe
                     A#         C      Dm
Then I don't have to see what's really there

               Dm
No, I'd rather pretend I'm something better than
      A#
These broken parts
F
Pretend I'm something other than
     C
This mess that I am
            Dm                       
'Cause then I don't have to look at it
    A#
And no one gets to look at it
F              A#     C
No, no one can really see

[Chorus]
       Am               F              G
'Cause I've learned to slam on the brake
C        F    G
Before I even turn the key
Am       F        G
Before I make the mistake
C        F             Am       G
Before I lead with the worst of me
C                F       Am       G
I never let them see the worst of me

[Outro]
C F G               
       'Cause what if everyone saw?
F C G 
      What if everyone knew?
C F G
      Would they like what they saw?
F C           F            G
     Or would they hate it too?
Dm                  G            C           F
Will I just keep on running away from what's true?

C          Dm    F
All I ever do is run
          Dm     F
So how do I step in
              C Dm F  C Dm F   
Step into the sun?
              C Dm F  C Dm F
Step into the sun

C Dm F
C Dm F
