Damien Rice - Rat Within the Grain

Hey I wanted to play this song the second I heard it so the only real option I had was
write it out myself. My first time doing it from scratch so it's probably a little off.
a pretty simple song just finger picking some basic chords. I've only put the chords 
here because I'm rubbish at tabbing and you can probably figure out the picking pattern
Each chord is played something like this:

C

e|-----------------|
B|-------1-------1-|
G|----------0------|
D|----2--------2---|
A|-3---------------|
E|-----------------|

Oh and there's a little riff thing on C during the chorus and the interludes

C(riff)

e|---------------------------|
B|-------1--------1--------1-|
G|---------------------------|
D|----2--------2--------2----|
A|-3--------2--------0-------|
E|---------------------------|


C                   G             Am               E
This would not have happened if I hadn't missed my plane
             F                    C                G
I would have been there when they told you I'm the rat within the grain
            C            G               Am            E
Within this big misunderstanding now I'm being misunderstood
            F                   C                    G
I'm thinkin someone's trying to fuck with me and set fire to my wood

           F           G          C(riff1)
I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
           Dm                         G
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
       C            G             Am           E
I only wanted to be wonderful and wonderful is true
           F          (C)           G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you


    C          G               Am              E
The stupid situation now where everything goes wrong
             F            C                 G
If you can't tell if I am lying then you do not belong
      C                 G             Am                E
In my bed, go rest your head upon the bones of a bigger man
           F              C                    G
And he can cover you with rockwool and you can close up like a clam


                 F           G          C(riff1)
Cause I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
           Dm                         G
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
       C            G             Am           E
I only wanted to be wonderful and wonderful is true
           F          (C)           G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you

Interlude
C(riff), G, F, C, F, G
C, G, Am, E, F, G, C

      C              G              Am        E
So go play with your piano, write a mediocre song
          F            C             G
About the shell of mediocrity and pretend there's nothing wrong
        C                  G                    Am
   E
I never thought you were a chicken shit I never thought of you at all
          F             C                          G
Until you asked me to be part of it and now you're showing me your wall

           F           G          C(riff1)
I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
           Dm                         G
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
       C            G             Am           E
I only wanted to be wonderful and wonderful is true
           F          (C)           G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you


C(riff), G, F, C, F, G
C, G, Am, E

           F           (C)          G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you
