This is a gorgeous song, played in 6/4 time, very slowly.
Forgive the funny spacing, I've tried to lay out the chords in correspondence
to the words.  You really have to hear the song to get it precise though.

Intro:

C  Fm  C  Fm

C  Am  G  C



C    Fm    
So be it I'm your crowbar

C             Fm
If that's what I am so far

C          Am   G       C
Until you get out of this mess

C          Fm
And I will pretend

C                 Fm
That I don't know of your sins

C           Am     G      F
Until you are ready to confess


F          Dm   Fm  D
But all the time, all the time

C       F      C      F
I'll know, I'll know

C           Fm
And you can use my skin

C       Fm
To bury secrets in

C      Am  G          C
And I will settle you down

C         Fm
And at my own suggestion

C      Fm
I will ask no questions

C              A          G     F
While I do my thing in the background

F           Dm   Fm  D
But all the time, all the time

C        F     C     F
I'll know, I'll know


Bridge:

E   Am  (two measures each chord)

E                       Am
Baby -- I can't help you out

F                 C    
While she's still around

C    Fm       C  
So for the time being

C    Fm    C  Am  G  C
I'm being patient

C            Fm
And amidst this bitterness

C               Fm
If you'll just consider this

C         Am      G     F
Even if it don't make sense

Dm       Fm      D 
All the time, give it time

C             Fm          C     
And when the crowd becomes your burden

     Fm                        C
And you've early closed your curtain

      Am          G        C
I'll wait by the backstage door

C         Fm 
While you try to find

C        Fm
The lines to speak your mind

C                 Am    G      F
And pry it open hoping for an encore

          Dm           Fm     D  
And if it gets too late for me to wait

C                    E            C  
For you to find you love me, and tell me so

Am    D   F            G   
It's ok, don't need to say it...


Outro - C  Fm  (six measures, ending on C)

One footnote... There's an A in there that should be an Am. Actually, ALL the A's are minors in this tune. And the outro is C, and F major, not F minor. Sorry!

If I may add a second footnote, I'm pretty sure the "all the time, all the time" chords are actually "F-Dm-F7-D7" instead of going to Fm and D major at the end. The dominant seven provides that "minor feel without actually being minor" that shows up there.
