Capo 4th fret

Verse 1

C
I woke up today with my mood in the way

F                         C
With no means to forget

C
With all of my hopes of your love on the ropes

F                               G
I haven't got back up yet

F          G
And the couple I saw kissing and carrying on

C                              Am
Didn't help change a thing

F                                                 G
It's the same old sight I saw last night

F                            G
In every one of my dreams


Chorus:

             F                                          C
I've had better days, in airports with rain delays

                            G                            C
Flat tires in traffic jams, and any time I've been damned

            F                                                        C
I've had better days, when the pain wouldn't go away

                              G
And tears watering down my pride

F                   C
Yea, I've had better


Verse 2

I got up, went down to work
Anything's better than this
Better than a death with each passing breath
You're too hard to miss
But I won't miss the pain that drives my brain
Straight into a twirl
When all I see is your memory spinning 'round my world


Chorus

I've had better days, in airports with rain delays
Flat tires in traffic jams, and any time I've been damned
I've had better days, when the pain wouldn't go away
And tears watering down my pride
Yea, I've had better


G                                                             F
Well, I've got to hold my head up and look around

G                                           Am      D
I can't let just one day get me down


Chorus

I'll have better days, when everything goes my way
I'll fly over traffic jams, just like Superman
I'll have better days when the pain just goes away
And the tears leave and I find my pride
Yea, I'll have better

Well, I woke up today with my mood in the way
And no means to forget
