[Em]Wish I'd known the way
Wish I'd [C2]found the door
Wish I [Em]took the path
You showed [C2]me before
'cause I'd be [G]better off
I'd be a [D/F#]better man
If I was what [Em]you want
And not what [C2]I am
VERSE 2: (same chords as Verse 1)
Careful what you wish
I am a dream come true
Now I'm someone else
Who only wanted you
I don't [G]fear the break
I can't [D/F#]feel the bend
If its [Am]what you want
Then I [C2]know, I [D]know I can
Please [C2]believe in me
Don't be [Em]leaving me
[C2]I won't be thrown [Em]away
Please [C2]believe in me
Don't be [Em]leaving me
I [C2]try to make it plain that
I can change, I can [D]change[Em]
VERSE 3: (same chords as Verse 1)
Wish I'd known the way
Wish I could find the door
That can take us back
To where we were before
CHORUS: (same chords as above)
Where we were better off
I was a better man
I was what you want
And not what I am
I don't fear the break
I can't feel the bend
If its what you want
Then I know, I know I can
'Cause I'd be better off
I'd be a better man
If it's what you want
Then I know I can
