             Bm
Gotta let my heart learn to talk
            D             G

G                       Bm    D Bm
 Never let them see you crying
G                            Bm             D
 Don't try to run before you figured how to crawl
A                               D    A D A
 They must believe they own the lions
G                         Bm             D   A     G  A
 Never let them guess you learned how to fall

A                           
 Let them brand you as a sinner
A
 Let them think that your the one who has lost
A
 You won't be charged with being a winner
A                           Bm     D   D   (C# B A)
 You won't be saddled being called the boss

Breath life into life
      A  G
(life to life )
                  A
Give life back to life

Why pretend to be so rough and strong
When your weakness is your strongest hand
Why pretend to be so tough so long as you are really an ordinary man

Never let them see you dreaming
Never let them know you conquered your sorrow
Don't let them know your scheming
Don't let them know that you have plans for tomorrow

To bring life to life
Give life back to life
Life to life
(Life to life)
Give life back to life

(A)               B                        E
Will you take the stand? Can you stand the shock?
                     B                   E
They need an iron man, they wanna man of rock
                         B                   E/Bb
You can keep all the games, the suicide leaps
                     B                     E           F#m
Keep away from the flames, this time we're playing for keeps

Never let them see you crying
But make dang sure your not afraid to cry
Never let them see you trying
Don't let them know you're prepared to die

To bring life to life
Give life back to life
Breath life into life
(Life to life)
Give life back to life

Gotta let my heart learn to talk
Must let my head learn to walk
I must forget all the hopeless pain
Must bring my life back to life once again
