Let's face the truth, the deed is done 
            F             Am                C
Look at me now babe, and say I'm still the one 
             C
Just who are we trying to defend 
             F       Am             C
A burnt-out building   should be condemned 
     G              Dm     F            C
Baby, I don't even know anymore, who I am ? 

              C
Don't look forlorn, don't look so sad 
               F      Am          C
Deep down you know  I  was always bad 
           G                 Dm          F
You say, "I don't know even know you anymore (baby) 
G             Dm           F          G  
I don't even know if I'm sure what I want" 

                C              F
Maybe a better man could understand 
                C                F
Maybe a better man could be your friend 
                Em             Am
Maybe a better man who would hold you 
      G                  Am
Like I'll never really hold you 
       Em                Am           F                 G
Maybe he could love you so that baby, I may be a better  man 


Yes I know, things have changed 
Once we were lovers, now we ain't even friends 
And maybe love, don't ask me why, 
Is something for which I ain't qualified 
You say, "I can't even see the boy you were (baby) 
And I don't think it's good to even be here anymore" 

Maybe a better man could understand 
Maybe a better man could be your friend 
Maybe a better man could hold you like I'll never really hold you 
Maybe he could love you so that baby, I may be a better man 

Maybe a better man could be your friend 
Maybe a better man could understand 
Maybe a better man wouldn't leave you 
Wouldn't hurt you and deceive you 
Wouldn't leave you to believe that someday he may be a better man 

Would be your friend 
And understand so that you'd never need again 
A better man 
A better man 
A better man
