Staind - Failing chords

--STAIND - FAILING--

This is my first time putting the chords on this site. I also have the electric version 
on here, minus the lead. I'm almost 100% positive on the verses and chorus, but the 
rest, not too sure.

Tuning: Standard (yes, these chords can be played in standard. If you've already detuned 
a half step, just put a capo on the first fret if you have one. Or you can just 
transpose them up a fret.)

INTRO:

D F#m D A

VERSE 1:
D   F#m                       D                       A
Yeah, like the threat of the darkest clouds rolling in

On a sunny day.
D     F#m        E                    F#m
  Yeah, like a field that has no rain.
D     F#m         D              A
  Yeah, like a dog that wanders aimless

With no name.
D     F#m       D               F#m
  Yeah, like a cut without the pain.

PRE-CHORUS:
D    F#m                E
  (Yeah) You couldn't feel this!
D F#m                E
      You couldn't take the pain!
D F#m                          E
      (Yeah) You couldn't live this!

CHORUS (words in parentheses implied but not sung):
D F#m    E     F#m       D              A
  And I'm just trying to get through to you,
    E
But I am failing.
      F#m          D        A
(You) lie like I'm not even here.
   E
My heart is breaking.
      F#m       D                A
(I'm) trying to see through your stare.
   E
It looks right through me.
    F#m          D            A
(I) smile and pretend I'm not there,
              E
To keep from going crazy.

INTERLUDE:

F#m E (x2)

VERSE 2:
D   F#m                        D
Yeah, like the day that your guardian angel
   A
Decided to fly away.
D     F#m        E                  F#m
  Yeah, like a bruise that doesn't fade.
D   F#m                   D
Yeah, like a memory that tortures your soul
   A
Until your dying day.
D     F#m       E                 F#m
  Yeah, like a life you couldn't save.
