VERSE 1
C                              G
I know I'm probably better off on my own
                      F                              F
Than lovin’ a man who didn't know what he had when he had it
C                                  G
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
                    F                              F
Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic
 
PRE CHORUS
                 F
I wish it wasn't 4 AM, standing in the mirror
       G
Saying to myself, "You know you had to do it"
   F                                     F
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run
 
CHORUS
C                                            G
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
           Am7                   (C/G)              F
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
      C                                       G
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
           Am7                    (C/G)            F
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
  C G F F
A better man
 
VERSE 2
C                              G
I know I’m probably better off all alone
                       F
Than needing a man who could change his mind
              F
At any given minute
                  C
And it was always on your terms
                  G
I waited on every careless word
                       F
Hoping they might turn sweet again
                   F
Like it was in the beginning
 
PRE CHORUS
          F
But your jealousy, oh, I can hear it now
        G
Talking down to me like I'd always be around
        F                                       F
Push my love away like it was some kind of loaded gun
        G
Oh, you never thought I'd run
 
CHORUS
C                                            G
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
           Am7                   (C/G)              F
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
      C                                       G
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
           Am7                    (C/G)             F
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
  C  G  Am7 C/G  F
A better man
 
BRIDGE
  F                                    G
I hold onto this pride because these days it's all I have
      F                                Am7
And I gave to you my best and we both know
      C/G       F
you can't say that
                  C
I wish you were a better man
           G
I wonder what we would've become
               F
If you were a better man
    Am7               C/G
We might still be in love
              C
If you were a better man
     G
You would've been the one
               F
If you were a better man
 
Yeah, yeah
 
CHORUS
C                                            G
Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
           Am7                   (C/G)              F
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
      C                                       G
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
           Am7                    (C/G)             F
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
           C
A better man
(Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again)
     G                                    Am7   C/G
We might still be in love, if you were a better man
(But I just miss you and I just wish you were a better man)
F
Yeah, yeah
C                                         G
I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
           Am7                   (C/G)              F
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
    C
A better man
 
OUTRO

You would've been the one
               C
If you were a better man
