Intro: Am  G  F  C  Gm  F  C  Am  G  F  C  Gm  F  C

Gm              F          Gm        F
You'll never see the courage I know
Gm          F                     Gm                        F
Its colors' richness won't appear within your view

E            Dm     E                 Dm
I'll never glow - the way that you glow
Gm                  F                     E                               
Your presence dominates the judgments made on you

Am            G                          F        C
But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights
Am                     G            F                     C
The shades and shadows undulate in my perception
Am             G                          F                          C
My feelings swell and stretch; I see from greater heights
F                             Dm                         Am           C
I understand what I am still too proud to mention - to you

C                    F                 Am                G
You'll say you understand, but you don't understand
C                       F                    Am                G
You'll say you'd never give up seeing eye to eye
F                    Am                       G                   Am
But never is a promise, and you can't afford to lie

Em  G  F  C  Gm  F  C  Am  G  F  C   F  C

Gm              F         Gm                     F 
You'll never touch - these things that I hold
Gm            F                   Gm                    F
The skin of my emotions lies beneath my own
E                 Dm  E              Dm
You'll never feel the heat of this soul
F                                 Dm                 C   
My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown - to you

C                       F                          Am           G
You'll say, Don't fear your dreams, it's easier than it seems

C                       F                  Am                       G
You'll say you'd never let me fall from hopes so high
F                    Am                       G                   Am
But never is a promise, and you can't afford to lie

G   F  C  Gm  F  C  Am  G  F  C  Gm  F  C

Gm              F         Gm         F
You'll never live the life that I live
Gm        F                       Gm                     F
I'll never live the life that wakes me in the night
E                 Dm        E               Dm
You'll never hear the message I give
F                                         Dm                       C       
You'll say it looks as though I might give up this fight

Am            G                          F                    C
But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights
Am                     G            F                     C
The shades and shadows undulate in my perception
Am             G                          F                          C
My feelings swell and stretch; I see from greater heights
F                           Dm                      C
I realize what I am now too smart to mention - to you

C                F                  Am             G
You'll say you understand, you'll never understand
C                      F            Am                   G
I'll say I'll never wake up knowing how or why
C                 F                           Am                  G
I don't know what to believe in, you don't know who I am
C              F                        Am                  G
You'll say I need appeasing when I start to cry
F                    Am   G                 F       G              Am  G  F
 C  Am
But never is a pro - mise and I'll never need a lie
