==
SUPER IMPORTANT: Many of the chords are ANTICIPATED, meaning the transition is sooner 
than you think it is. I tried to space it out appropriately throughout the text. Trust me, 
listen to the recording.

This is the way it's played on the recording, at least from what I can tell. Feel free 
to substitute all power chords for standard full chords or vice versa. Have a nice day :^)

           G
You've got secrets, yeah,
            Em
And I've got a weakness for them.
                  D                D*
No this ain't the time or place to show your face,
          C*
Cause you know that I can't stand
                G
The need to get even. Tonight,
                 Em
When everything ya say won't come out right.
               D                   D*
So I'll try to save some face, and take my space
          C           D
Till the times right, cause we'll need it.

   Will you remember? The truth,
     D                           (opt. C to fill space)
Cause they won't even want me to.

                G5
Wish you would read this, yeah,
               E5
And knew that I mean it. I did.
                  D5
Yeah I could fill every page with all my ways
       C5
That I tried to understand.
                       G5
Wished things could be different. Alright,
                     E5
Well it ain't for the lack of how I tried.
                 D5

the chorus chords, but here's the little picking part ==
