[Verse 1] 
                  C         F    Am     G
Take out all your wasted honor 
             C         F           Am      G
Every little past frustration 
                 C           F             Am      G
Take all of your so called problems 
               C      F               Am      G
Better put 'em in quotations
 

[Chorus] 
             A       F
Say what you need to say 
             Am      G
Say what you need to say……………… (4)


[Verse 2] 
               C         F   Am  G
Walking like a one man army 
                  C         F           Am      G
Fighting with the shadows in your head 
              C          F             Am      G
Living on the same old moment 
                  C          F        Am                  G
Knowing you'll be better off instead    if you could only


[Chorus] 
             C       F
Say what you need to say 
             Am      G
Say what you need to say……………… (4)
 

[Bridge] 
Dm             F             G
     Have no fear for givin' in 
Dm              F             G
     Have no fear for givin' over 
Dm                  F                 G
     You better know that in the end 
                   F
It's better you say too much 
              G
Than never to say what you need to say again
 

[Verse 3] 
             C           F       Am   G
Even if your hands are shakin' 
         C           F          Am   G
And your faith is broken 
            C          F         Am   G
Even as the eyes are closin' 
             C         F         Am   G
Do it with a heart wide open……………
 

[Final Chorus] 
             Am       C
Say what you need to say 
             F       F
Say what you need to say……………… (8)
