Lyrics

Better Man Tomorrow - a simple prayer
Words and Music by Craig Bowers

E Abm7 Amaj7 Abm7
I just want to be a better man tomorrow
Amaj7 Abm7 F#7 F#m7
A better man tomorrow than I am today
Abm7 Amaj7 Abm7
In this cold world, all heartache and sorrow
Amaj7 Abm7 F#m7 E
To be a better man tomorrow is all I pray

If everyone tried a simple act of kindness
One simple act of kindness everyday
Then little by little, the walls of fear around us
That divide us and surround us - might just fall away

Bridge:
Amaj7 Emaj7
The world is a gift we share together
Amaj7 abm7 C#9
It's not just yours, it's not just mine
Amaj7 E C#m7
This is a chance to do the right thing
Dmaj7 B9
This is a time to shine

So I just want to be a better man tomorrow
A better man tomorrow than I am today
So that when my children look to me to feed them
To guide them and to lead them I will find a way
Inst: (Same as a verse)

2nd Bridge:

Maybe I'm just another crazy dreamer
Sleepwalking all on my own
If that's so just let me keep on sleeping on
Dmaj7 Ab7
Let me make this dream my home (Repeat 3 Times)
Dmaj7 Abm7-C#9 (Modulate to F#)
I want to make this dream my home

F#maj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
I just want to see a better world tomorrow
A better world tomorrow than I see here today
Maybe by being a better man tomorrow
Then a better world will follow
That's all I pray

So I just want to be a better man tomorrow
A better man tomorrow than I am today
