Better Together by Jack Johnson – Lyrics with Guitar Chords

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

[Verse]
                 C
And all of these moments
           C/B                     Am           Am/G
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight,
      F                    C/E
But I know that they’ll be gone
         Dm            G
When the morning light sings
           C          C/B
And brings new things
      Am               Am/G
For tomorrow night you see
     F               C/E
That they’ll be gone too,
         Dm               G
Too many things I have to do
                    C                 C/B
But if all of these dreams might find their way
        Am             Am/G
Into my day to day scene
       F            C/E
I'd be under the impression
      Dm              G
I was somewhere in between
          C
With only two,
            C/B
Just me and you,
            Am               Am/G
Not so many things we got to do
   F                C/E
Or places we got to be
            Dm              G
We'll sit beneath the mango tree, now
 
[Chorus]
F                   G
  Yeah, it's always better when we're together
F                       G
  Mmmm, we're somewhere in between together
F                   G
  Well, it's always better when we're together
F                   G
  Yeah, it's always better when we're together
 
[Interlude]
C     C/B     Am        Am/G
  Mmm mmm mm mm mmm mm mm mmm
F          C/B     Dm   G
  Mm mm mm mm mmm mmmm mm mmm

[Bridge]
Dm                     G
  I believe in memories they look so
Dm                      G
  So pretty when I sleep hey now and
Dm         G
  When I wake up you look so
  Dm                      G
  Pretty sleeping next to me but there is
F                G
  Not enough time there is no
F                     G
  No song I could sing and there is no
Dm/F                  G
  Combination of words I could say
           Dm/F                     G
But I will still tell you one thing
We're better together
