i saw that there is no chords-only version of this song on UG, so here it is - just the 
chords with no bass line (which is pretty easy to figure out too)

for the acoustic version of this song, drop the tuning by a half step.

It was a [Bm] plane ride from LAX to [E] O'Hare,
and what happened next was a [Bm] series of unfortunate events.
[E] (Please stay tuned for what happened next...)
The [Bm] life I breathe for you gives to me [E] new wounds [G]
Ones to [A] patch and dress as [Bm] I reflect on [E] what else I could give you.

Maybe I should [Bm] blindly throw my [A] faith
into the [E] next thing that comes my [G] way
Standing at the [Bm]back door with the [A] life that she left [E] behind. [E]
Are we all the [Bm] same behind the [A] frame
Beneath the [E] glass and fake last [G] names?
I've been waiting [E] far too long to [F#m] feel the sun on my [G] ba[A]ck.

It was a [Bm] big bang
and a bright white light from [E] nowhere.
It turned my [Bm] coach class window to
A first class seat on the [E] evening news, on NBC.
The [Bm] life I gave for you is yours
So [E] keep it, you oughtta [G] keep it.
If I had [A] one last chance to [Bm] take it all back
You [E] know I'd take take take you.

Maybe I should [Bm] blindly throw my [A] faith
into the [E] next thing that comes my [G] way
Standing at the [Bm]back door with the [A] life that she left [E] behind. [E]
Are we all the [Bm] same behind the [A] frame
Beneath the [E] glass and fake last [G] names?
I've been waiting [E] far too long to [F#m] feel the sun on my [G] ba[A]ck.

"A[D]pologies are all we'll ever be," [A] she said.
Standing on the [Bm] stairs
Looking back, looking [G] hard at me.
"Well, [D] life is long for those who have to wait," [A] I said.
The choice I had to [Bm] make.
The choice I had to [G] make.
The choice I had to...


It was a [Bm] plane ride. (plane ride)
It was a [E] plane ride. (plane ride)
It was a [Bm] plane ride.
Just A [E] plane... [G]


Maybe I should [Bm] blindly throw my [A] faith
into the [E] next thing that comes my [G] way
Standing at the [Bm]back door with the [A] life that she left [E] behind. [E]
If we know the [Bm] way we're gonna [A] die
Through everything [E] else we will sur[G]vive
I've been waiting [E] far too long to [F#m] feel the sun on my [G] ba[A]ck.


But [C] one day,
I will stay.
