[Verse]
C
  There's no combination of words
        Am
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                           Am
  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
  Love is the answer
             Am
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
  It's not always easy and
          Am
Sometimes life can be deceiving
F                   C                  Dm                  G
  I'll tell you one thing, it's always better when we're together
 
[Chorus]
F                   G                           (F# - F)
  Mmmm, it's always better when we're together
F                         G                           (F# - F)
  Yeah, we'll look at the stars and we're together
F                   G                           (F# - F)
  Well, it's always better when we're together
F                   G                           (F# - F)
  Yeah, it's always better when we're together
 
[Interlude]
C     Am      F C   Dm G
C     Am      F C   Dm G
 
[Verse]
                 C
And all of these moments
           C                       Am
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
And brings new things
      Am
For tomorrow night you see
     F               C
That they’ll be gone too,
         Dm               G
Too many things I have to do
                    C
But if all of these dreams might find their way
        Am
Into my day to day scene
       F            C
I'd be under the impression
      Dm              G
I was somewhere in between
          C
With only two,
            C
Just me and you,
            Am
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                   G                           (F# - F)
  Yeah, it's always better when we're together
F                       G                           (F# - F)
  Mmmm, we're somewhere in between together
F                   G                           (F# - F)
  Well, it's always better when we're together
F                   G                           (F# - F)
  Yeah, it's always better when we're together
 
[Interlude]
C             Am
  Mmm mmm mm mm mmm mm mm mmm
F          C       Dm   G
  Mm mm mm mm mmm mmmm mm mmm
 
[Instrumental]
C     Am      F C   Dm G
 
[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                    G
  Combination of words I could say
           Dm                       G
But I will still tell you one thing
We're better together
 
[Outro]
C     Am      F C   Dm G
C     Am      F C   Dm G
C
