Verse 1:
       Bbm
She was 19 with a baby on the way
        Ab
On the East-side of the city, she was working every day
          Fm
Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
         Gb                                                   Ab
She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
     Bbm                                              Ab
And, 'cross town she would take the bus at night to a one bedroom apartment
 
And when she'd turn on the light
           Fm
She would sit down at the table
 
Tell herself that it's alright
         Gb                                             Ab
She was waiting on the day she hoped her baby would arrive
     Bbm              Ab
She'd never be alone
                       Fm
Have someone to hold
 
And when nights were cold
Gb
She'd say
 
Chorus:
               Bbm
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
           Ab
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Fm
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
           Gb
You should know I'll be there for you
           Ab        Bbm
When the world's not perfect
 
When the world's not kind
            Ab
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
                Fm
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
           Gb                           Ab
You should know I'll be there for you
 
Verse 2:
         Bbm                                       Ab
They were 90 and were living out their days on the West-side of the city next to where they got engaged
         Fm
They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they'd made
           Gb                                                   Ab
And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
Bbm
With each other, and though some times were hard
     Ab
Even when she made him angry he would never break her heart
         Fm
No, they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car
          Gb                                           Ab
But they never had to travel 'cause they'd never be apart
Bbm             Ab                           Fm
Even at the end, their love was stronger than the day that they first met
 Gb
They say
 
Chorus:
               Bbm
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
           Ab
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Fm
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
           Gb
You should know I'll be there for you
           Ab        Bbm
When the world's not perfect
 
When the world's not kind
            Ab
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
                Fm
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
           Gb
You should know I'll be there for you
 
Bridge:
Bbm  Ab   Fm
Oh  Ooh OOoh
           Gb                         Ab
You should know I'll be there for you
 
Verse 3:
   Bbm
I'm 23, and my folks are getting old
       Ab
I know they don't have forever and I'm scared to be alone
       Fm
So I'm thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
     Gb                                               Ab
When high school wasn't easy, she's the reason I survived
  Bbm
I know she'd never leave me
 
And I hate to see her cry
      Ab
So I wrote this Verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
  Fm
I wrote this Verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
  Gb
I wrote this Verse to tell her that
 
Chorus:
                Bbm
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
          Ab
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Fm
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
          Gb
You should know I'll be there for you
       Ab            Bbm
When the world's not perfect
 
When the world's not kind
           Ab
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
               Fm
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
           Gb                        Ab
You should know I'll be there for you
 
Outro:
Bbm Ab  Fm
Oh Ooh Oooh
           Gb                        Ab Bbm
You should know I'll be there for you
