[INTRO]
F C Bb


[VERSE]
F                              C
I know I’m probably better off on my own
C                      Bb
Than lovin' a man who didn’t know
Bb
What he had when he had it
    F                               C
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
C                     Bb
Never again, I just wish 
Bb
I could forget when it was magic
Bb
I wish it wasn’t 4am, standing in the mirror
       C
Saying to myself, you know you had to do it
    Bb
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run


[CHORUS]
F
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, 
       C
I can feel you again
            Dm
But I just miss you, and 
        C               Bb
I just wish you were a better man
       F
And I know why we had to say goodbye
            C
Like the back of my hand
            Dm
And I just miss you, and 
         C               Bb
I just wish you were a better man
           F
A better man


[INSTRUMENTAL] 
F


[VERSE]
F                                C
I know I’m probably better off all alone
C
Than needing a man who could 
Bb
change his mind at any given minute
           F
And it’s always on your terms
                       C
I’m hanging on every careless word
C                     Bb
Hoping it might turn sweet again
Bb
Like it was in the beginning
Bb
But your jealousy, I can hear it now
                 C
You’re talking down to me like I’ll always be around
                   Bb
You push my love away like it’s some kind of loaded gun
         C
Boy, you never thought I’d run


[CHORUS]
F
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, 
       C
I can feel you again
            Dm
But I just miss you, and 
        C               Bb
I just wish you were a better man
       F
And I know why we had to say goodbye
            C
Like the back of my hand
            Dm
And I just miss you, and 
         C               Bb
I just wish you were a better man
           F C Dm C Bb
A better man


[BRIDGE]
   Bb                                 C
I hold onto this pride because these days it’s all I have
       Bb                             Dm      C        Bb
And I gave you my best and we both know you can’t say that
Bb
You can’t say that
                     F
I wish you were a better man
F        C
I wonder what we would’ve become
                Bb
If you were a better man
     C
We might still be in love
               F
If you were a better man
F        C
You would’ve been the one
                 Bb
If you were a better man
Bb
Yeah, yeah


[CHORUS]
F
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, 
       C
I can feel you again
            Dm
But I just miss you, and 
        C               Bb
I just wish you were a better man
       F
And I know why we had to say goodbye
            C
Like the back of my hand
            Dm
And I just miss you, and 
         C               Bb
I just wish you were a better man
           F
A better man


[OUTRO]
      C                                   Dm       C
We might still be in love, if you were a better man
        Bb
Better man...
