[Intro]
C  Em  Am  G  F  C  Dm  G


[Verse]
C                     Em
There's no combination of words
         Am                      G
I could put on the back of a postcard
F              C
No song that I could sing
       Dm            G
But I can try for your heart,
C       Em                Am                 G
our dreams, and they are made out of real things
        F               C
like a shoe box of photographs
          Dm         G
with sepia-toned loving
C              Em
Love is the answer
              Am                        G
at least for most of the questions in my heart, like
F             C                   Dm
Why are we here? And where do we go?
                   G
And how come it's so hard?
C                 Em
It's not always easy and
            Am               G
sometimes life can be deceiving
F                    C
I'll tell you one thing,
              Am                   G
it's always better when we're together


[Chorus]
F                   C
Mmmm, It's always better when we're together
F                       C
Yeah we'll look at the stars and we're together
F                   C
Well, it's always better when we're together
F               G
Yeah so much better when we're together


[Interlude]
C  Em  Am  G  F  C  Dm  G  2x


[Verse]
                C
And all of these moments
           Em                     Am             G
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight,
     F                          C
But I know that they’ll be gone
        Dm                   G
When the morning light sings
             C        Em
Or brings new things.
      Am                    G
For tomorrow night you see
    F                    C
That they’ll be gone too.
        Dm                G
Too many things I have to do.
                   C                 Em
But if all of these dreams find their way
       Am                G
Into my day-to-day scene,
      F                 C
I’d be under the impression
     Dm                   G          C
I was somewhere in between with only two,
                 Em
Just me and you.
           Am                G
Not so many things we got to do
  F                 C
Or places we got to be.
           Dm               G
We’ll sit beneath the mango tree now.


[Chorus]
F                  C
Yeah It's always better when we're together
F                       C
Mmmm, we're somewhere in between together
F                   C
Well, it's always better when we're together
F               G
Yeah so much better when we're together


[Interlude]
C  Em  Am  G  F  C  Dm  G  2x


[Bridge]
Dm                 G
I believe in memories
              Dm                  G
they look so, so pretty when I sleep
         Dm               G
Hey now, and when I wake up,
            Dm                       G
you look so pretty sleeping next to me
              F             G
But there is not enough time,
               F                G
There is no, no song I could sing
                 F                G
and there is no combination of words I could say
              F                    G~
but I will still tell you one thing

We're Better together

[Outro]
C  Em  Am  G  F  C  Dm  G  2x
  C~
