Intro
Dm    C    Am Bb

Dm            C            Am          Bb
There’s nothing worse than saying nothing when you should’ve done.
I promised to myself
To open up, open up my honesty. I break it every time,
F         Am*      Bb*
but I’ll make it again.

I sat with you and watched as they played their songs for us, I don’t remember a word. But I remember every single one of yours and that look in your eye, ’cause that moment is mine.

F      Bb*  C*     F          Bb*        Dm* C*
What can I say now, to thank you, to thank you?
What can I do that’s better than a promise?

(repeat chords)

There’s nothing better than saying just what you should’ve done, and keeping your promise. I sat with you and watched as they played their songs for us, and nobody else.

What can I say now, to thank you?
I know what to do, that’s better than a promise.
