[Verse]
           G
I got me a shovel
                  Em
And I'm digging a ditch
                 C                          D                   G                 D
And I'm going to fight for this four square feet of land like a mean old son of a bitch
           G
I got me a future
                     Em
I'm not stuck on the past
             C                      D                    G                          D
I got no new tricks, yeah I'm up on bricks but me, I'm a machine and I was built to last

[Chorus]
    C                              D               G
I'm trying to get better because I haven't been my best
           C                           D             Em
She took a plain black marker, started writing on my chest
           C                            D
She drew a line across the middle of my broken heart,
          G                   D        Em
And said: "Come on now, let's fix this mess"
             C       D
We could get better
                       G
Because we're not dead yet

[Verse]
                G
They threw me a whirlwind
                    Em
And I spat back the sea
               C                         D                          G                      D
I took a battering but I've got thicker skin and the best people I know looking out for me
                  G
So I'm taking the high road
                            Em
My engines running high and fine
                     C                  D                          G                  D
May I always see the road rising up to meet me and my enemies defeated in the mirror behind

[Chorus]
    C                              D               G
I'm trying to get better because I haven't been my best
           C                           D             Em
She took a plain black marker, started writing on my chest
           C                            D
She drew a line across the middle of my broken heart,
          G                   D        Em
And said: "Come on now, let's fix this mess"
             C       D
We could get better
                       G
Because we're not dead yet

[Bridge]
            G                         D
It's just a knot in the small of your back
                  Em            C
You could work it out with your fingers
            G                           D
It's just a tune that got stuck in your head
                  Em            C
You could work it out with your fingers
               G                          D
It's just some numbers tangled up in your sums
                  Em            C
You could work it out with your fingers
                          C                            C
It's just a simple braille missive from the person you miss,
  C
a reminder you could always be
   G                     D
A little bit better than this

[Chorus]
    C                           D            G
So try and get better and don't ever accept less
       C                      D                  Em
Take a plain black marker and write this on your chest
        C                          D
Draw a line underneath all this unhappiness
G                   D        Em
Come on now, let's fix this mess
             C       D
We could get better
                       G
Because we're not dead yet
             C       D
We could get better
                       G
Because we're not dead yet
