Relient K - Be My Escape Acoustic chords version 1

Chords
Transpose
I've seen great tabs for this song,
but all of them were just a little bit off.
nothing too major, just enough to irk me a little bit.
anyway, I've listened to the song over and over and watched how they play it
live and I am 100 % certain that this is the way that they play it live,
as well as on the album.
Also, thanks to lovetoplaybball
for the most accurate tab on this song.
Oh yeah! One more thing.
The high pitched instrument in this song is a mandolin,
I'm not going to tab it out.
That goes for the piano too.

(Verse 1) (Chords are in accordance to the capo.)
G DIve given up, I'm giving up slowly,
Cadd9Im blending in so you wont even know me
G D G Em/G Cadd9apart from this whole world that shares my fate
G D Cadd9This one last bullet you mention is my one last shot at redemption
G D G Em/G Cadd9because I know to live you must give your life away
(Pre-chorus)
Em C G DAnd Ive been housing all this doubt and insecurity
Em C G DIve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
Em C G DAnd Ive been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
Am CAnd even though, thereís no way in knowing where to go,
Dpromise Im going because
(Chorus 1)
G D Cadd9 D I---I gotta get outta here
G D Cadd9 D Iím stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
G D Cadd9 D I---I gotta get outta here
Em/G D And Im begging You, Iím begging You,
C D G Im begging You to be my escape.
(Verse 2)
G DIm giving up on doing this alone now
Cadd9Cause Ive failed and Im ready to be shown how
G D G Em/G Cadd9Hes told me the way and Im trying to get there
G DAnd this life sentence that Im serving
Cadd9I admit that Im every bit deserving
G D G Em/G Cadd9But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair
(Pre-chorus)
Em C G DAnd Ive been housing all this doubt and insecurity
Em C G DIve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
Em C G DAnd Ive been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
Am CAnd even though, theres no way in knowing where to go,
Dpromise Im going because
(Chorus 2)
G D Cadd9 D I---I gotta get outta here
G D Cadd9 D Im afraid that this complacency is something I cant shake
G D Cadd9 D I---I gotta get outta here
Em/G D And Im begging You, Im begging You,
Cadd9 D G Im begging You to be my escape.
(Bridge)
Em D C DI am a hostage to my own humanity
Em D C DSelf detained and forced to live in this mess Ive made
Em D C DAnd all Im asking is for You to do what You can with me
Am C DBut I cant ask You to give what You already gave
(Pre-chorus)
Em C G DAnd Ive been housing all this doubt and insecurity
Em C G DIve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
Em C G DAnd Ive been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
Am CAnd even though, theres no way in knowing where to go,
Dpromise Im going because
(Chorus 1)
G D Cadd9 D I---I gotta get outta here
G D Cadd9 D Im stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
G D Cadd9 D I---I gotta get outta here
Em/G D And Im begging You, Im begging You,
C D G Im begging You to be my escape
