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
