       CAPO ON 5TH FRET
------------------------------

[Intro]
C G F


[Verse]
C                               G
I know I’m probably better off on my own
                     F
Than lovin' a man who didn’t know
What he had when he had it
    C                              G
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
                   F
Never again, I just wish 
I could forget when it was magic


[Pre-chorus]

                 F
I wish it wasn’t 4am, standing in the mirror
       G
Saying to myself, you know you had to do it
  F
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]
C                              G
I know I’m probably better off all alone
Than needing a man who could 
F
  change his mind at any given minute
                   C
And it’s always on your terms
                     G
I’m hanging on every careless word
                    F
Hoping it might turn sweet again
Like it was in the beginning


[Pre-chorus]

         F
But your jealousy, I can hear it now
               G
You’re talking down to me like I’ll always be around
            F
You push my love away like it’s some kind of loaded *
         G
Boy, you never thought I’d run


[Chorus]

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


[Bridge]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Outro]
   G                                     Am         G       
We might still be in love, if you were a better man
       F
Better man...
