How To Play

INTRO
 
B  B/A#  G#m  F#  E   F#
 
 
VERSE 1
 
B           B/A#           G#m              B/F#   Emaj7      F#sus4
 Lie number one: You're supposed to have it all together
               B              B/A#
 And when they ask how you're doing
      G#m                B/A#    Emaj7       F#sus4
 Just smile and tell them "Never better"
B           B/A#      G#m            B/A#      Emaj7          F#sus4
 Lie number two: Everybody's life is perfect except yours
              B               F#              G#m
 So keep your messes and your wounds and your secrets safe
      F#          E           F#
 With you behind closed doors
 
 
PRE CHORUS
 
E             F#        G#m      B/D#   E
 But truth be told, the truth is rarely told
 
 
CHORUS
 
            B               F#/A#         G#m            F#
I say, "I'm fine, yeah, I'm fine, oh, I'm fine, hey, I'm fine"
    E              F#
But I'm not, I'm broken
              B         F#              G#m        F#/A#
And when it's out of control I say it's under control
    E                F#
But it's not and You know it
  E                                F#
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
           G#m           F#          E
When being honest is the only way to fix it
           B           F#/A#
There's no failure, no fall
           G#m           F#      E
There's no sin You don't already know
           F#       B    F#   G#m   F#   E   F#
So let the truth be told
 
 
VERSE 2
 
           B           F#
 There's a sign on the door, says,
  G#m         F#         E         F#
 "Come as you are" but I doubt it
              B                    F#
 'Cause if we lived like that was true,
       G#m            F#           E       F#
 Every Sunday morning pew would be crowded
B           F#      G#m
 But didn't You say church should look
 F#          E         F#
 More like a hospital?
        B             F#        G#m            F#
 A safe place for the sick, the sinner and the scarred,
         E              F#
 And the prodigals like me
 
 
PRE CHORUS
 
E             F#        G#m      F#     E
 But truth be told, the truth is rarely told
             F#
 Oh am I the only one who says:
 
 
CHORUS
     B               F#            G#m            F#/A#
"I'm fine, yeah, I'm fine, oh, I'm fine, hey, I'm fine"
    E              F#
But I'm not, I'm broken
              B         F#              G#m        F#/A#
And when it's out of control I say it's under control
    E                F#
But it's not and You know it
  E                                F#
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
           G#m           F#          E
When being honest is the only way to fix it
           B           F#
There's no failure, no fall
           G#m           F#      E
There's no sin You don't already know
           F#       E
So let the truth be told
 
 
BRIDGE
 
             F#            G#m
Can I really stand here unashamed
                  B                 E
Knowing that Your love for me won't change
           F#
Oh God, if that's really true
     B   F#  G#m   F# E    F#
Then let the truth be told
 
 
CHORUS
 
            B               F#            G#m            F#/A#
I say, "I'm fine, yeah, I'm fine, oh, I'm fine, hey, I'm fine"
    E              F#
But I'm not, I'm broken
              B         F#              G#m        F#/A#
And when it's out of control I say it's under control
    E                F#
But it's not and You know it
  E                                F#
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
           G#m           F#          E
When being honest is the only way to fix it
           B           F#
There's no failure, no fall
           G#m           F#      E
There's no sin You don't already know
       F#
