                  [Verse 1]
       Am
She was 19 with a baby on the way
        G
On the East-side of the city, she was working every day
          Em
Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
         F                                                    G
She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
     Am                                               G
And, 'cross town she would take the bus at night to a one bedroom apartment

And when she'd turn on the light
           Em
She would sit down at the table

Tell herself that it's alright
         F                                              G
She was waiting on the day she hoped her baby would arrive
     Am               G
She'd never be alone
                       Em
Have someone to hold

And when nights were cold
F
She'd say


[Chorus]
               Am
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
           G
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Em
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
           F
You should know I'll be there for you
           G         Am
When the world's not perfect

When the world's not kind
            G
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
                Em
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
           F                            G
You should know I'll be there for you


[Verse 2]
         Am                                        G
They were 90 and were living out their days on the West-side of the city next to where they got engaged
         Em
They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they'd made
           F                                                    G
And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
Am
With each other, and though some times were hard
     G
Even when she made him angry he would never break her heart
         Em
No, they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car
          F                                            G
But they never had to travel 'cause they'd never be apart
Am              G                            Em
Even at the end, their love was stronger than the day that they first met
 F
They say


[Chorus]
               Am
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
           G
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Em
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
           F
You should know I'll be there for you
           G         Am
When the world's not perfect

When the world's not kind
            G
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
                Em
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
           F
You should know I'll be there for you


[Bridge]
Am   G    Em
Oh  Ooh OOoh
           F                          G
You should know I'll be there for you


[Verse 3]
   Am
I'm 23, and my folks are getting old
       G
I know they don't have forever and I'm scared to be alone
       Em
So I'm thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
     F                                                G
When high school wasn't easy, she's the reason I survived
  Am
I know she'd never leave me

And I hate to see her cry
      G
So I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
  Em
I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
  F
I wrote this verse to tell her that


[Chorus]
                Am
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
          G
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Em
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
          F
You should know I'll be there for you
       G             Am
When the world's not perfect

When the world's not kind
           G
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
               Em
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
           F                         G
You should know I'll be there for you


[Outro]
Am  G   Em
Oh Ooh Oooh
           F                         G  Am
You should know I'll be there for you
