Intro:
Ebm                           Gb
Lately, I've been, I've been thinking
                 B                           Abm
I want you to be happier, I want you to be happier

Verse:
                 Ebm
When the morning comes
                         Gb
When we see what we've become
                                 B
In the cold light of day we're a flame in the wind
                          Abm
Not the fire that we've begun

Pre-Chorus:
         Ebm                               Gb
Every argument, every word we can't take back

'Cause with the all that has happened
  B                                               Abm
I think that we both know the way that the story ends

Chorus:
     Ebm                 Gb
Then only for a minute
                    B
I want to change my mind
                             Abm
'Cause this just don't feel right to me
  Ebm                          Gb
I want to raise your spirits
                  B
I want to see you smile but
                      Abm
Know that means I'll have to leave

Interlude Ebm Gb B

Interlude:
                     Abm
Know that means I'll have to leave
Ebm                           Gb
Lately, I've been, I've been thinking
                 B                         Abm
I want you to be happier, I want you to be happier

Verse:
                  Ebm
When the evening falls
                              Gb
And I'm left there with my thoughts
                           B
And the image of you being with someone else
                          Abm
Well, that's eating me up inside
              Ebm                         Gb
But we run our course, we pretended we're okay
                           B
Now if we jump together at least we can swim
                            Abm
Far away from the wreck we made

Chorus:
     Ebm               Gb
Then only for a minute
                    B
I want to change my mind
                             Abm
'Cause this just don't feel right to me
  Ebm                         Gb
I want to raise your spirits
                  B
I want to see you smile but
                      Abm
Know that means I'll have to leave

I want you to be happier, I want you to be happier

Bridge:
        B        Gb
So I'll go, I'll go
        Db      Ebm
I will go, go, go
        B        Gb
So I'll go, I'll go
       Db
I will go, go, go

Ebm                           Gb

I want you to be happier, I want you to be happier
Ebm                      Gb
Even though I might not like this
                       B                         Abm         Db
I think that you'll be happier, I want you to be happier

Chorus:
     Ebm                  Gb
Then only for a minute
                    B

                             Abm
'Cause this just don't feel right to me

I want to raise your spirits
                  B
I want to see you smile but
                      Abm
Know that means I'll have to leave
