D             Em                Bm       D
You've got a million reasons to hesitate
                 Em                   Bm        D
But darling, the future's better than yesterday
         Em              Bm                    A     D
I wasted so much time on people that reminded me of you
           Em                 Bm       G
Gave you a million reasons to walk away

                  A                Bm                 A  
But I'll build a house out of the mess and all the broken pieces
      D          A           Em
I'll make up for all of your tears

                   D     Em Bm
I'll give you the best years
      A            D     Em Bm A
I'll give you the best years
      D                       Em
Past love, burned out like a cigarette
  F#m                    G
I promise, darling, you won't regret
     D    Em Bm A D
The best years

I wanna hold your hair when you drink too much
And carry you home when you cannot stand up
You did all these things for me when I was half a man for you
I wanna hold your hand while we're growing up

But I'll build a house out of the mess and all the broken pieces
I'll make up for all of your tears


The best years


I'll give you the best years
