††† C - G - F

 

††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††G

2. I know Iím probably better off on my own

††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††F

††† than lovin' a man who didnít 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.

 

†††††††††††††††† †††††††††††F

††† I wish it wasnít 4 a.m., 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 !

 

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††G

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again,

††††††† †††††††Am†††††† ††††††††††††††††††††G†††††††††††††† ††††††††F

but I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man.

And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand,

††††††††† ††††††Am†††††† †††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††††† †††††††††F††††††††††††††††††† C

and I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man, a better man.

 

††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††G

2. I know Iím probably better off all alone

 

††† than needing a man who could

F

††† change his mind at any given minute.

††† And itís always on your terms, Iím hanging on every careless word,

†††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††F

††† hoping it might turn sweet again, like it was in the beginning.

 

†††††† †††††††††††††F

††† But your jealousy, I can hear it now,

†††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††G

††† youíre talking down to me like Iíll always be around.

††††††††††† †††††††††††††††F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F
