O cantor country Keith Urban participou recentemente de um programa de rádio nos EUA onde, ao ser entrevistado, foi questionado sobre qual música ele estava “no clima” para fazer um cover no momento. Keith respondeu que disse a Taylor que quando ela escreveu “Better Man” era uma boa música e que se identificava com a letra por se colocar no lugar do homem que é descrito na narrativa da música.

Após isso, o cantor fez um cover mudando algumas partes da letra para se encaixar a um ponto de vista masculino, criando uma nova versão.

Letra:

I know you’re probably better off on your own
Than lovin’ this man who could change his mind at any given minute
And I see the permanent damage I did to you
Never again, I just wish we could go back to when it was magic
I wish it wasn’t four am, standing in the mirror
Saying to myself, you know you had to come and I know
The bravest thing you ever did was run

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
Girl I miss you, and I just wish I’d been a better man
And I know you had to say goodbye
Like the back of my hand
God, I miss you, and I just wish I’d been a better man
A better man

I know you’re probably better off all alone
Than needing a man who could change his mind at any given minute
And it’s always on my terms
You’re hanging on every careless word
Hoping I might turn sweet again
Like I was in the beginning
My jealousy, I can hear me now
Talking down to you like it’ll always be around
I push your love away like it was some kind of loaded gun
Like I thought you’d never run

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish I’d been a better man
And I know you had to say goodbye
Like the back of my hand
God, I miss you, and I just wish I’d been a better man
A better man
Better man

I wonder what we could’ve become
If I’d been a better man
Might still be in love
If I’d been a better man
I could’ve been the one
I should’ve been the one

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
Girl I miss you, and I just wish I’d been a better man
And I know you had to say goodbye
Like the back of my hand
God I miss you, I just wish I’d been a better man
I just wish I’d
I wish I’d been a better man

It keeps me up at night
Wishin’ that I’d
I’d been a better man
