Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
First time tabbing/chording out a song.
Alkaline198's chords are mostly right, but he's missing a lot in the chorus.

Intro:
E B (x3)
C#m A

Verse 1:
E            Abm             C#m
I remember a rooftop, making out
               A                      E
Downstairs the coppers screamed so loud
              Abm             C#m
I'd waited so long for that night
            A
Then I just turned away

Pre-Chorus 1:
B                C#m               A
And I know every street on the West-Side
          E     B            A
But I was lost, unfound, not right
              E         B     A
Maybe there's something wrong inside

Verse 2:
E            Abm         C#m
Now I've got nowhere to go
            A               E
My hands is all that I've got
                 Abm        C#m
I'm so sorry for so many things
       A              B
That I haven't said yet

Pre-Chorus 2:
            C#m            A                   E
This is the waiting-room I spend my whole life in
               B                         A
They gave me a thousand hands so I could count my sins
       E                B                 A
If I'm lucky maybe I'll finish before the roof caves in

Chorus:
E         B                 A
I lost my life on the first try
             Ab*
You found it miles down the line
A         E                     B
A swollen face with three first names
E              B                A
You kissed the taste back in my tongue
               Ab*
You sucked the smoke out of my lungs
A           E                  B
And then we slept for days and days and days
E       C#m  A   E            C#m    A
When we woke up, my heart all choked up
C#m    B                E       A
Had to say "I love you" way too soon
    E                   B                  A
But right there on your couch you loved me too
            E                 B        A
Right there on your couch you loved me too

Bridge:
E B (x3)
C#m A

Verse 3:
E            Abm              C#m
Nineteen and sober once or twice
              A                 E
I caught some junkie's bad advice
         Abm             C#m
Up to my eyes in others' problems
         A                    B
Couldn't see, I'd never solve them

Pre-Chorus 3:
         C#m               A              E
I'm only skin and bone and piss and pills unknown
          B             A
I took my lousy shot at public recognition
            E                B           A
Could never pull the trigger if I wasn't shaking

Chorus:
E         B                 A
I lost my life on the first try
             Ab*
You found it miles down the line
A         E                     B
A swollen face with three first names
E              B                A
You kissed the taste back in my tongue
               Ab*
You sucked the smoke out of my lungs
A           E                  B
And then we slept for days and days and days
E       C#m  A   E            C#m    A
When we woke up, my heart all choked up
C#m    B                E       A
Had to say "I love you" way too soon
    E                   B                  A
But right there on your couch you loved me too
            E                 B        A
Right there on your couch you loved me too

*The Ab during the chorus is played by barring an A chord and adding the 4th fret of 
the low E string (Ab)*

Sounds damn near perfect to me!
