C Cmaj9, Am, F (four times)
Intro oooohs

C G C F
I used to think that it all stopped happening
C Cmaj9 Am F
By the time you reached twenty one
C G C F
They said there's nothing like the first love you get boy
G F
They were wrong, oh so wrong,
G F G
They hung on and hung on, to their dream, I know
Chorus
C Cmaj9 Am F
Oooh Life gets better yeah
C Cmaj9 Am F
When ever I'm in her arms
C Cmaj9 Am F
Just to know I'm not the average fella
G F C G C
I'm the one, I'm the one for her

Well it's a shame what they do to these young kids
Just encourage them to act like clowns
And then they think that they don't have much longer
Knocked up the first time she let em get down
Put four walls around and then scream, but I know

Repeat chorus

Bridge
F G C
Life stretches before me an endless mystery
Cmaj9 F G
And nothing can bore me, when she's with me
F G C
I feel the heartbeat of the world in the hands of this girl
Cmaj9 G F G F G F Am
But it takes so much time to, to finally see, see, see

D A D G
I get a thrill when I think how it really is
D Dmaj9 Bm G
Noone can ever take that away
D A D G
They try to put rubber bands around your heart
A G A
But they're wrong, oh so wrong, they hung on
G A
And hung on, to their dream, but I know

D Dmaj9 Bm G
Oooh Life gets better yeah
D Dmaj9 Bm G
When ever I'm in her arms
D Dmaj9 Bm G
Just to know I'm not the average fella
A G D
I'm the one, I'm the one for her

Oooh Life gets better yeah, When ever I'm in her arms
Just to know I'm not the average sucker, I'm the one, I'm the one for her

Oooh Life gets better yeah, Oooh Life gets better yeah
Oooh Life gets better yeah
