On the intro chords the note after the slash is the bass note.
The chords and bass will be difficult to play on guitar,
so I'd just play the chord unless you're playing piano.  Suggestions
welcome, I'm not the best at picking out weird chords.

Dm           C           Bb           C
I was in a fog I didn't notice everything
    Dm            C             Bb  C
Was coming all apart inside of me
      Dm          C         Bb            C
There wasn't anyway for anyone to settle in
    Dm             C             Bb   C
You made a slow disaster out of me

Dm            C        Bb           C
    There's a radiant darkness upon us
Dm          C              Bb    C
    I don't want you to worry
Dm        C           Bb             C
    I was careful but nothing is harmless
Dm        C             Bb     C
    Baby, you better hurry

C            G            Bb          F
You were a kindness when I  was a stranger
    C            G           Bb         F
But I wouldn't ask for what I  didn't need
C               G            Bb          F
Everything's weird and we're always in danger
C               G         Bb        F
Why would you shatter somebody like me?

C   G             Bb       F
    It doesn't work that way
C          G        Bb           F        C
   Wanting not to want you won't make it so
    G             Bb       F 
    It doesn't work that way
C   G                Bb     F
    Don't leave me here  alone

     Dm          C          Bb          C
I'll do what I can to be a confident wreck
      Dm            C            Bb  C
Can't feel this way forever, I mean
      Dm         C          Bb            C
There wasn't anyway for anyone to settle in
    Dm             C             Bb C
You made a slow disaster out of me

Dm            C        Bb           C
    There's a radiant darkness upon us
Dm          C              Bb    C
    I don't want you to worry
Dm        C           Bb             C
