INSTRUCTIONS: The verse has hammer-on's included in the strum pattern.

When playing the C2 in the Verse, hammer-on the D-strong from open fret to 2.


INTRO: Em

VERSE 1: 
Em
Wish I'd known the way
         C2
Wish I'd found the door
       Em
Wish I took the path 
           C2
You showed me before


CHORUS:
              G
'cause I'd be better off
         D/F#
I'd be a better man
              Em
If I was what you want
             C2
And not what I am


VERSE 2: (same chords as Verse 1)
Careful what you wish
I am a dream come true 
Now I'm someone else 
Who only wanted you


REPEAT CHORUS

CHORUS CONTINUED:
        G
I don't fear the break
        D/F#
I can't feel the bend
       Am
If its what you want 
       C2      D
Then I know, I know I can


BRIDGE:
       C2
Please believe in me
         Em
Don't be leaving me
C2                Em
I won't be thrown away 
       C2
Please believe in me
         Em
Don't be leaving me
  C2
I try to make it plain that 
                    D       Em
I can change, I can change


VERSE 3: (same chords as Verse 1)
Wish I'd known the way
Wish I could find the door
That can take us back 
To where we were before


CHORUS: (same chords as above)
Where we were better off
I was a better man
I was what you want
And not what I am

CHORUS CONTINUED:
I don't fear the break
I can't feel the bend
If its what you want 
Then I know, I know I can

CHORUS REPEATED:
'Cause I'd be better off
I'd be a better man
If it's what you want
Then I know I can
