[Verse]

D               Dmaj7                        Bm                    A
There's no combination of words that I could put on the back of a postcard
G           D/F#              Em            A* 
No song that I could sing but I can try for your heart and
D    Dmaj7              Bm                 A            
Our dreams and they are made out of real things like
G            D/F#             Em           A* 
a shoebox of photographs and sepia-toned lovin'
D          Dmaj7                 Bm                       A         
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart like
G              D/F#                Em                A* 
why are we here and where do we go and how come it's so hard? 
D               Dmaj7              Bm             A
It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
G            D/F#                    Em                 A*     Ab
I'll tell you one thing it's always better when we're together 


[Chorus]

G*                 A*                        Ab G*
mmmmm it's always better when we're together
                       A*                        Ab G*
Yeah well look at them stars when we're together 
                  A*                        Ab G*
Well it's always better when we're together
                  A*                        
Yeah it's always better when we're together.


[Verse]

                  D               Dmaj7         Bm                    A         
and all of these moments just might find their way into my dreams tonight 
G                          D/F#              Em             A*          D        Dmaj7 
but I know that they'll be gone when the morning light sings or brings new things 
        Bm                 A        G            D/F#             Em           A*    
for tomorrow night you'll see that they'll be gone too too many things I have to do.
                D               Dmaj7         Bm                    A 
but if all of these dreams might find their way into my day to day scene 
        G            D/F#             Em          A*             D           Dmaj7 
I'd be under the impression I was somewhere in between with only 2 just me and you 
              Bm              A        D/F#                        Em           A*    
now so many things we got to do, or places we got to be we'll sit beneath the mango tree now


[Chorus]

G*                A*                        Ab G*
Yeah it's always better when we're together
                       A*                   Ab G*
 mmmmm we're somewhere in between together 
                  A*                        Ab G*
Well it's always better when we're together
                  A*                        
Yeah it's always better when we're together.


[Bridge]

mmmm mmm mmmm

Em                A*                  Em                  A*
   I believe in memories they look so, so pretty when I sleep, hey now and
Em             A*                 Em                      A*
   and when I wake up you look so pretty sleeping next to me but there is 
G*           A*             G*                 A*
not enough time. there is no, no song I could sing and there is no 
G*              A*                           G*                 A*
combination of words I could say but I will still tell you one thing we're better together

This way works and at first listen, I thought he might us a Capo too but then I watched it on Sessions.AOL and he doesn't use a Capo. He just used Bar chords. Believe me, its true. I don't see why he would play it different in the studio sessions then he did on the recording. I worked it out with the bar chords and drops like he played it and it sound perfect.I will post the tab if I get a chance to actually tab it out. Go to sessions on AOL and they show his hands close up so you can easily see how to play it.
