(this is my first tab but i will not post this chords if this isn't sounds like the song.)

Intro: G - Dsus4/F# - Em - Dsus4/F#
Normal tuning..CAPO on the 3rd Fret.

Verse 1:
        G               Dsus4/F#
  Step one you say we need to talk
   Em                Dsus4/F#           G
He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
              Dsus4/F#         
He smiles politely back at you
 Em            Dsus4/F#          G
You stare politely right on through
               Dsus4/F#
  Some sort of window to your right
Em         Dsus4/F#             G
As he goes left and you stay right
            Dsus4/F#             Em
Between the lines of fear and blame
                 Dsus4/F#     
And you begin to wonder why you came


Chorus:
C                 D
Where did I go wrong
         Em
I lost a friend
           G              D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C
And I would have stayed 
 D                Em
up with you all night
            G       D       G - Dsus4/F# - Em - Dsus4/F#
Had I known how to save a life


Verse 2:
G                 Dsus4/F#
Let him know that you know best
      Em                Dsus4/F#
Cause after all you do know best
   G                  Dsus4/F#
  Try to slip past his defense
Em              Dsus4/F#
Without granting innocence
  G           Dsus4/F#           Em
  Lay down a list of what is wrong
                  Dsus4/F#
The things you’ve told him all along
 G              Dsus4/F#
And pray to God he hears you
   Em              Dsus4/F#
And pray to God he hears you


Chorus:
C                 D
Where did I go wrong
         Em
I lost a friend
           G              D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C
And I would have stayed 
 D                Em
up with you all night
            G       D       G - Dsus4/F# - Em - Dsus4/F#
Had I known how to save a life

Interlude: G - Dsus4/F# - Em - Dsus4/F# (play this right after that last chords in chorus)


Verse 3:
 G
As he begins to 
Dsus4/F#
raise his voice
   Em
You lower yours and 
Dsus4/F#               G
grant him one last choice
                Dsus4/F#
Drive until you lose the 
        Em
road Or break with the 
            Dsus4/F#
ones you’ve followed
  G           Dsus4/F#
  He will do one of two things
Em               Dsus4/F# 
He will admit to everything
G
Or he’ll say he’s 
Dsus4/F#
just not the same
Em
And you’ll begin to 
Dsus4/F#
wonder why you came

Chorus:
C                 D
Where did I go wrong
         Em
I lost a friend
           G              D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C
And I would have stayed 
 D                Em
up with you all night
            G       D        C  (play the next chord right after this one)
Had I known how to save a life

C                 D
Where did I go wrong
         Em
I lost a friend
           G              D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C
And I would have stayed 
 D                Em
up with you all night
            G       D      G - Dsus4/F# - Em - Dsus4/F#
Had I known how to save a life

Interlude: G - Dsus4/F# - Em - Dsus4/F#
