Verse :

 And you ask me what I want this year
 And I try to make this kind and clear
 Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

          D
 ‘Cause I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
        G
 And designer love and empty things
        A                 G                 D
 Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days


Chorus :

     G                    A
  So take these words and sing out loud
        G              A
 ‘Cause everyone is forgiven now
          B                       G               D         D
 ‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again


Verse:

        D
 And in some place simple where we could live
     G
 And something only you can give
            A                   G                    D
 And that’s faith and trust and peace while we’re alive
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/goo_goo_dolls/better_days_crd_ver_3.html ]
            D
 And the one poor child who saved this world
             G
 And there’s ten million more who probably could
          A                     G                 D
 If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them


Chorus :

     G                    A
  So take these words and sing out loud
        G              A
 ‘Cause everyone is forgiven now
        B                       G
 ‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again

Bridge :

        D
 I wish everyone was loved tonight
       G
 And some might stop this endless fight
          A                  G                  D
 Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days


Chorus :

     G                    A
  So take these words and sing out loud
        G              A
 ‘Cause everyone is forgiven now
          B                       G               D
 ‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
          B                       G               D
 ‘Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
