About this tab version
Different chords on a different fret. It sounds a little deeper and more fluent, and a little more melancholy. Bottom two strings are left open which gives it a deep sort of sound. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]
E Bm A A


[Verse 1]
E                              Bm
I know I’m probably better off on my own
                     A
Than lovin' a man who didn’t know
A
What he had when he had it
  E                                Bm
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
                   A
Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic
                A
I wish it wasn’t 4am, standing in the mirror
       Bm
Saying to myself, you know you had to do it
  A                                    A
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run


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


[Verse 2]
E                              Bm
I know I’m probably better off all alone
                             A
Than needing a man who could change his mind at any given minute
                   E
And it’s always on your terms
                     Bm
I’m hanging on every careless word
                     A
Hoping it might turn sweet again
A
Like it was in the beginning
         A
But your jealousy, I can hear it now
               Bm
You’re talking down to me like I’ll always be around
            A
You push my love away like it’s some kind of loaded gun
         Bm
Boy, you never thought I’d run


[Chorus]
E                                            Bm
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
           C#m                  Bm              A
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
E
And I know why we had to say goodbye
         Bm
Like the back of my hand
           C#m                  Bm              A
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
         E       Bm
A better man
    A
Better man


[Bridge]
  A                                  Bm
I hold onto this pride because these days it’s all I have
      A                            C#m      Bm        A(let ring)
And I gave you my best and we both know you can’t say that

You can’t say that
                 E
I wish you were a better man
         Bm
I wonder what we would’ve become
              A
If you were a better man
   Bm
We might still be in love
              E
If you were a better man
    Bm
You would’ve been the one
              A
If you were a better man
  A
Yeah, yeah


[Chorus]
E                                            Bm
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
           C#m                  Bm              A
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
E
And I know why we had to say goodbye
         Bm
Like the back of my hand
           C#m                  Bm              A
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man


[Outro]
A

   Bm                                    A
We might still be in love, if you were a better man
    Bm                                     A
You could have been the one, if you were a better man
   Bm                                    C#m        Bm
We might still be in love, if you were a better man
    A (once and let ring)
Better man
