Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey, I got this from watching videos of her playing this live (of which there are 2 
poorly lit ones!) So may not be totally accurate but it sounds alright.

STANDARD TUNING
NO CAPO

Intro and verse pattern:
   Em        D/F#    Bm        C (varies. Otherwise, 
continue pattern)
e ------------2-----------2-----------|
B ---8--------3--3-----3--3----1p0----|
G ---9--9-----2--2-----4--4--------0--|
D ---9--9--------0-----4--------------|
A -7----7------------2--------3-------|
E ----------2-------------------------|

Em   D/F#
Everyday
    Bm      C
The same mistake
    Em           D/F#
The pieces don't fit
      Bm    C
How I guess

Em      D/F#     Bm     C
Worn so thin and caving in
Em     D/F#      Bm     C
Frozen between a no and yes

(Strum here if preferred)

PRECHORUS

Em  D/F#   Bm          C
Oh, Oh I'm sliding for some time
Em  D/F#  Bm         C
Oh, Oh    Ripping in two
Em  D/F#    Bm     C
Oh, Oh, The memory planted
Em  D/F#     Bm        C
Oh, Oh,  I'm just what grew

CHORUS

Em*         D
You come to find me
  G            C
A mess at your door
Em*        D         G         C
Arms under elbows as I hit the floor
Em*       D        G              C
I mean to tell you just what I've done
Em*           D              G           C
How could you choose me when I've just begun
C                    Bm              Em    D/F#   
Bm   C
Don't know what I'll be when morning comes

VERSE (SAME)

Every night
The sheets pulled tight
I'm sinking before I begin
Silent as the light goes black
And digging to see what beats within

PRECHORUS (SAME)

I'm sliding for some time
Ripping in two
A mountain of ashes
I'm just like you

CHORUS (SAME)

You come to find me
A mess at your door
Arms under elbows as I hit the floor
I mean to tell you just what I've done
How could you choose me when I've just begun
Don't know what I'll be when morning comes

*Use standard Em here
