Trevors Song It Gets Better chords – Chris & Taylor

 [Intro]
 Dm C Bb C Dm C Bb A
[Verse 1]
    Dm C
He wakes up in the morning, his eyes are red he hardly slept
    B C
It were his thoughts that kept him up all night, one of so many nights he cried.
             Dm C
These awful names till floating through his head
                                Bb F
with all the nasty things they said carving their marks into his heart
 C Dm
Their nochalance rips him apart.
                         C Bb
Another day, will it be cruel? The fear travels with him to school
                            A
Nervous he treads into the hall, he ingores what they call
[Chorus]
   Dm Bb
I know you find it hard to believe but it gets better.
                             C
I know it hurts it's only a matter of time and then you will find:
 Bb A
It takes the dark of night before the sun can shine
 Dm Bb
I know the pain is hard to forget, but life gets brighter,
                                        C
with a smile on your face you'll stand right there and then
no more need to pretend,
     Bb A D
you know the time was tough but it was effort well spent.
[Verse 2]
 Dm C Bb
She's gazing out the window before laugh this used to be her favourite class
                          C
Now it takes all her energy to keep their words away
     Dm C Bb
You see her distant looks, her empty stares, gifts from a word that doesn't care
                             C Dm
She doesn't know she's not alone, she doesn't feel she has a home
                             C Bb
As she gets pushed onto the ground, she doesn't even make a sound
                       A
People look the other way. The teachers pretends it's just childly play
[Chorus]
   Dm Bb
I know you find it hard to believe but it gets better.
                             C
I know it hurts it's only a matter of time and then you will find:
 Bb A
It takes the dark of night before the sun can shine
 Dm Bb
I know the pain is hard to forget, but life gets brighter,
                                        C
with a smile on your face you'll stand right there and then
no more need to pretend,
     Bb A D
you know the time was tough but it was effort well spent.
[Bridge]
 Bb C
So what you're different from the rest
                            Dm
Can't you see that you are best
                         Bb
Being yourself is not a sin
You give this world some coloring
                                C Dm
Please put that pen and letter down, soon the world will be your playground,
                             C
I know it seems too much to bear it takes some strength but you're getting there.
[Verse 3]
    Dm C Gm
It took some time for them but finally they understand it's other peoples insecurities
     Fm Dm
and not their own that brought them to their knees.
                                  C Bb
The world it is an ever changing place. Still they don't always like its pace.
                                 C Dm
They know it's moving the right way it's getting better e
