Promises I Can’t Keep Guitar Chords & Lyrics Mike Shinoda



[Verse 1]

(Bm)  (D)  (A)  (E)

(Bm)                            (D)
What's the difference between a man and a monster
(A)                       (E)
Is it somewhere between "I can" and "I want to"
(Bm)                      (D)
Is it somewhere between the promises I made
(A)                                     (E)
And the fact I couldn't see something getting in the way


[Pre-Chorus]

(Bm)                     (D)
I used to think that I know what I want
(A)                   (E)
Never saw it coming unglued
(Bm)                     (D)
I used to think that I know what I want
(A)                            (E)
Now it's time to see if it's true


[Chorus]

(Bm)            (D)
I had so much certainty
         (A)                (E)
Til that moment I lost control
         (Bm)           (D)               (A)       (E)
And I've tried but it never was up to me
         (Bm)       (D)
I've got no worse enemy
         (A)                    (E)
Than the fear of what's still unknown
        (Bm)             (D)                  (A)
And the time's come to realize there will be
(E)
Promises I can't keep

(Bm)  (D)  (A)  (E) x2

[Verse 2]

(Bm)                            (D)
What's the difference between a loss and a forfeit
(A)                          (E)
I tried to make it better, but I made it more sick
(Bm)                        (D)
I tried to make it right, now awake at night
(A)                  (E)
I know reality was getting in the way


[Pre-Chorus]

(Bm)                     (D)
I used to think that I knew who I was
      (A)                (E)
Never saw it coming unglued
(Bm)                     (D)
I used to think that I knew who I was
         (A)                   (E)
Now it's time to see if it's true


[Chorus]

(Bm)            (D)
I had so much certainty
         (A)                (E)
Til that moment I lost control
         (Bm)           (D)               (A)       (E)
And I've tried but it never was up to me
         (Bm)       (D)
I've got no worse enemy
         (A)                    (E)
Than the fear of what's still unknown

And the time's come to realize there will be
