And made us scream  eternal  joy

C                     Gsus4    G
I believed that you'd always be here
      C     Caug C6 Caug    Dm Dm(maj7) Dm7 G7
'cause once you  promised a life  with  no  fear

Am*    C*    F* G7*  C E7 Am C
Please don't break my ideals
    F   D7    Gsus4  (G7)    C E7 Am C
And say whats fake was always real

I was the one now I'm gone
F    D7 Gsus4 G
Take me back  again

--CHORD DIAGRAMS AND SUGGESTIONS--

The original song uses a capo on the 3d fret which makes it a 
hell of a lot easier to play but capos are for pussies and also
 I don't have a capo so I figured the open position chords 
(I'm gonna leave out the common chords such as C, Dm, G7, E7, D7, Am, F, and G...
 if you need to you can google those, they are pretty simple).

1.- When reaching the "C Caug C6 Caug" progression, you can use these chords which 
you may find easier:

e|----x----  --x---- ----x--------x------------------|
B|----5----  --5---- ----5--------5------------------|
G|----5----  --5---- ----5--------5------------------|
D|----5----  --6---- ----7--------6------------------|
A|----7----  --7---- ----7--------7------------------|
E|----8----  --8---- ---(8)------(8)-----------------|(Notes in parenthesis mean optional)
      C       Caug       C6      Caug



OR IF YOU DON'T WANT TO/CAN'T, YOU CAN ALSO DO THIS:

e|-----0-------(0)-------0-------(0)------------------|
B|-----1--------1--------1--------1-------------------|
G|-----0--------1--------2--------1-------------------|
D|-----2--------2--------2--------2-------------------|
A|-----3--------3--------3--------3-------------------|
E|----(3)-------x--------x--------x-------------------|
       C       Caug      C6      Caug


SUGGESTION:If you still wish to simplify this progression,
 you can replace every C6 in the song with an Am, 
sounds about the correct chord and'll make it easier.


2.- As for the "Dm Dm(maj7) Dm7 G7" progression, here's how it goes:

e|---1---------1--------1--------1-----------------------------------------------|
B|---3---------2--------1--------0-----------------------------------------------|
G|---2---------2--------2--------0-----------------------------------------------|
D|---0---------0--------0--------0-----------------------------------------------|
A|---0---------0--------0--------2-----------------------------------------------|
E|---x---------x--------x--------3-----------------------------------------------|
     Dm     Dm(maj7)   Dm7      G7


3.- In case you were wondering how to play a Gsus4:

e|---3-------- or       --3-------------------------------------------------------|
B|---1---------some     --1-------------------------------------------------------|
G|---0---------people   --0-------------------------------------------------------|
D|---0---------play     --0-------------------------------------------------------|
A|---2---------it like  --x-------------------------------------------------------|
E|---3---------this---> --x-------------------------------------------------------|
    Gsus4               Gsus4

4.- SUGGESTION: I use some variations on the chords (The ones marked *) when 
reaching the 2nd chorus 
which make it sound closer to the recording and way prettier, you may choose to 
ignore this of course)
These chord variations are Am* C* F* G7*
