[Intro]
A    D
.......

[Verse 1]
A
..Ever look at all the people
Who seem to know exactly how to be?
D
..How to be, how to be, no
How to be
         A 
You think they don't need piles
                                    D
Of prescriptions to function naturally?
Functioning natural

[Verse 2]
A
..Take a look and you might just catch it
              D
Stay a minute more
Minute more, minute more now
Minute more
         A
There's a little moment after the sunny smile
                       D
Their eyes fall to the floor
To the floor, to the floor, now
To the floor

[Pre-Chorus]
         A                    D
And then truth starts peaking through
          A               D
They're a lot like me and you
         A            D
They can fake a smile too

[Chorus]
     F#m
The anonymous ones
    A                                 D
Who never let you see the weight they carry
                             E
They carry, they carry, they carry
           F#m
All those anonymous ones
A                                D
No one named the quiet pain they bury
                           E
They bury, they bury, they bear
F#m
Keep on keeping secrets
          E
That they think they have to hide
         D
What if everybody's secret is
                      E
They have that secret side?

[Post-Chorus]
       F#m                     Em
And to know to know we're not alone
   E           D
Is all we're hoping for
C
I don't wanna be anonymous
Bm
I ain't gotta be anonymous
                              A
I don't wanna be anonymous anymore
   D
Anymore

[Verse 3]
A
..Spot the girl who stays in motion
                           D
Spins so fast so she won't fall
World spinning so fast, not too fast
A
..She's built a wall of her achievements
To keep out the question
        D
Without it, is she worth anything at all?

[Post-Chorus]
         A                    D
And then truth starts peaking through
          A               D
They're a lot like me and you
         A            D
They can fake a smile too

[Chorus]
     F#m
The anonymous ones
    A                                 D
Who never let you see the weight they carry
                             E
They carry, they carry, they carry
           F#m
All those anonymous ones
A                                D
No one named the quiet pain they bury
                           E
They bury, they bury, they bear

[Post-Chorus]
C
I don't wanna be anonymous
Bm
I ain't gotta be anonymous
                              A
I don't wanna be anonymous anymore

[Bridge]
The parts we can't tell, we carry them well
But that doesn't mean they're not heavy
    F#m
The parts we can't tell, we carry them well
                                  E
But that doesn't mean they're not heavy
The parts we can't tell, we carry them well
                                        D
But that doesn't mean they're not... heavy, heavy

[Chorus]
     F#m
The anonymous ones
    A                                 D
Who never let you see the weight they carry
                             E
They carry, they carry, they carry
           F#m
All those anonymous ones
A                                D    E
No one named the quiet pain they bury...
F#m
Keep on keeping secrets
          E
That they think they have to hide
         D
What if everybody's secret is
                      E
They have that secret side?

[Post-Chorus]
       F#m                     Em
And to know to know we're not alone
   A           D
Is all we're hoping for
C
I don't wanna be anonymous
Bm
I ain't gotta be anonymous
                              A
I don't wanna be anonymous anymore
