[Intro]
F      Bb

[Verse 1]
F                              C
I know I’m probably better off on my own
                       Dm
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
                  Dm                                Bb
Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic
Bb                     
I wish it wasn’t 4am, standing in the mirror
Bb                     
Saying to myself, you know you had to do it
Bb
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run

[Chorus]
F                                             C
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
            Dm                                   Bb
But I just miss you, and 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                                    Bb
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
         F
A better man

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

[Chorus]
F                                             C
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
            Dm                                   Bb
But I just miss you, and 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                                    Bb
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
         F
A better man
C          Dm         Bb
    A better man

[bridge]
Bb                                    C
I hold onto this pride because these days it’s all I have
       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
         C
I wonder what we would’ve become
               Dm
If you were a better man
    Bb
We might still be in love
               F
If you were a better man
C
You would’ve been the one
               Dm
If you were a better man
Bb
Yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
F                                             C
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
            Dm                                   Bb
But I just miss you, and 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                                    Bb
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man

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