Verse:
        G                 Gmaj7                         em        emmin7
There's no combination of words that I could put on the back of a postcard

   C                 Cmaj7    am            D
No song that I could sing but I can try for your heart and

G      Gmaj7               em               emmin7
   Our dreams and they are made out of real things like

  C               Cmaj7      am          D
a shoebox of photographs and sepia-toned loving

G              Gmaj7               em                       emmin7
   Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart like

C                   Cmaj               am           D
why are we here and where do we go and how come its so hard?

    G              Gmaj7            em          emmin7
Its not always easy   and sometimes life can be deceiving

     C                  Cmaj7          am                D
I'll tell you one thing    it's always better when we're together


Chorus:
(Cadd5 = 032013)

Cadd5             D
mmmmm it's always better when we're together

Cadd5                  D
Yeah we'll look at the stars when we're together

Cadd5            D
Well it's always better when we're together

Cadd5           D
Yeah it's always better when we're together.
                 G                  Gmaj7                  em       emmin7
And all of these moments just might find their way into my dreams tonight,

      C                    Cmaj7         am            D
But I know that they'll be gone when the morning light sings,

              G      Gmaj7        em                  emmin
Or brings new things        for tomorrow night you'll see

     C               Cmaj7        am               D
That they'll be gone too too many things I have to do.

                    G            Gmaj7                  em         emmin7
But if all of these dreams might find their way into my day to day scene

       C           Cmaj7          am              D
I'd be under the impression I was somewhere in between

          G               Gmaj7           em               emmin7
With only two just me and you now so many things we got to do,

   C                Cmaj7          am              D
or places we got to be we'll sit beneath the mango tree now

Chorus:
Yeah it's always better when we're always together
Mmhh we're somewhere in between together
Well it's always better when we're together
Yeah it's always better when we're together

G Gmaj7 em emmin7 C Cmaj7 am D
mmmhhh mmmmhhh...

Bridge:
Cadd5          D                    Cadd5              D
  I believe in memories they look so, so pretty when I sleep, hey now

Cadd5          D                 Cadd5                   D
  And when I wake up you look so pretty sleeping next to me but there is

Cadd5        D                 Cadd5            D
  not enough time. There is no, no song I could sing and there is no

Cadd5            D                            Cadd5              D
  combination of words I could say but I will still tell you one thing

we're better together.
