  hey, pretty simple song, almost the same as the original. Not too many people have 
this version, but i like it better. the chords are just slightly different. i'm not sure if 
got the names right though. once i figure out the solo i'll post it as a comment or something.

          Csus            G
This is the story of a girl
                       A4                    D/F
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
          Bm                  Csus
While she looks so sad in photographs
   A7sus4
I absolutely love her
          G       G  D C     G  D Csus
When she smiles


Verse:
Bm                        Csus
How many days in the year
    G                             D/F
She woke up with hope but she only found tears
   Bm                     Csus
And I can be so incincere
G                      D/F
Making her promises never for real
    Bm                            Csus
As long as she stands there waiting
G5                             D/F
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
Bm                      Csus
How many days disappear
         G                         D/F
When you look in the mirror so how do you choose

Bridge:
       Em7                 D/F
Your clothes never wear as well the next day
     G                   A4
Your hair never falls in quite the same way
    Em7              D/F             A4
But you never seem to run out of things to say

Chorus
Verse 2:
Bm                         Csus
How many lovers would stay
        G                       D
Just to put up with this every day and all day
Bm                          Csus
How did we wind up this way
G5                               D/F
Watching our mouths for the words that we say
   Bm                            Csus
As long as we stand here waiting
G5                               D/F
Wearing the clothes of the souls that we choose
Bm                       Csus
How do we get there today
             G                           D/F
When we\'re walking too far for the price of our shoes
