[Intro]
G D Am C

[Verse 1]
G                               D
I know I’m probably better off on my own
                      Am
Than lovin' a man who didn’t know
                   C
What he had when he had it
     G                           D
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
                   Am                               C
Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic
              Am                   
I wish it wasn’t 4am, standing in the mirror
       C
Saying to myself, you know you had to do it
Am                                      Bm7
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run

[Chorus]
G                                      D      
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
           Am                               C
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
       G
And I know why we had to say goodbye
          D
Like the back of my hand
Am                                            C
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
Bm7
A better man

[Verse 2]
G                              D
I know I’m probably better off all alone
                             Am                          C
Than needing a man who could change his mind at any given minute
                        G
And it’s always on your terms
                      D
I’m hanging on every careless word
                      C
Hoping it might turn sweet again
                    Am
Like it was in the beginning
Am
But your jealousy, I can hear it now
                   C
You’re talking down to me like I’ll always be around
Am                                                  C
You push my love away like it’s some kind of loaded gun
Am                         Bm7
Boy, you never thought I’d run

[Chorus]
G                                      D      
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
           Am                               C
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
       G
And I know why we had to say goodbye
          D
Like the back of my hand
Am                                            C
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
Bm7
A better man

[Bridge]
Am                                       C
I hold onto this pride because these days it’s all I have
       Am                        C          D         Em*
And I gave you my best and we both know you can’t say that
N.C.
You can’t say that
N.C.
I wish you were a better man
         Am*
I wonder what we would’ve become
               C*
If you were a better man
Am
We might still be in love
        C
If you were a better man
Am
You would’ve been the one
        C
If you were a better man
Bm7
Yeah, yeah

[Outro]
Am*                                    C*
We might still be in love, if you were a better man

D*

Better man

Love it! Best one on here. Only thing I don't exactly hear in the song are the Bm7's you've included but overall great tab! Thank you :)
