This is the way I play it, sounds pretty close to me:


(Intro: F C F C)

C               F
Stay where you are,
                    C
Don't jump on any planes.
                    F
And I'll keep on kicking myself
                        C
For having let you get away.

                            Bb
But I will say it's circumstance
                   F
And point to the vane.
                          F7
Chalk it all up to the weather
                    Bb
And not to your disdain.

      Bb         F
I'll yell from afar
                        C
If I need to call you names.
                      F
Forgo the thought of killing myself,
                       C
Instead I'll let you take aim.

                     Bb
And force your declaration
               F
Of what we became.
                         F7
Sure, on paper it looks good,
                    Bb
If you ignore the stains.

           Bb                      F
It's the little things that set me off.
         Bb                             F    C
Your favorite shirt is someone else's cloth...

(Interlude: F C F C)

C                F
So stay who you are,
                            C
Though some would call it strange.
                  F
And I'll keep on kidding myself
                      C
That I can make you change.

                   Bb
You know more than anyone
               F
My need to deceive.
                           F7
And while I can fool the world,
              Bb
Mostly I fool me.

            Bb                      F
It's the little things that set me off,
       Bb                            F
Like walking by our favorite coffee shop,
     Bb                            F
Or seeing your haircut at the bus stop,
     Bb                                  F    C
Or hearing someone cough just like you cough.

       F
Just hold
   Bb
A moment.
   C           Bb
Please, humour me.
     F
I'm not
   Bb
Reacting
   F     C
Fanatically.
      F          C          Bb
And hear how my voice is a code
    Bb
To you...
     F
All Dots
      C
And Dashes
      Bb
Mixed up
     C
In clues...

     F
my love

Comments and corrections welcome; I want as accurate a tab as possible!

To see a video of me playing and singing this song, go here:

It might give you a little insight as to when to change chords and how to make it seem a 
less... blocky, if you know what I mean. Hope that helps!
