Hey guys, my sister likes this song and I'm looking for easy songs to play, so 
I ear-transcribed this and it's pretty nice and easy!  (Still can't play the 
chords fast enough myself, but oh well...)  I noticed that there are some other
chords for this song out there but I think this version sounds a bit more like 
the recorded version because it uses a capo, though it's probably still not 
perfect.

UPDATED: One commenter asked for the chords for the last chorus, so here's my
best guess!

IMPORTANT: Use a capo!
Capo 5th fret

Chords: EADGBe
G       320003
Cmaj7   032003 (I guess you could mute the E string too but I don't)
Em7     022033
Dsus    xx0233
B7      x21202
C       x32010
G7      323003
A7      x02223
D       xx0232
G/F#    220003
G*      330003

G                                Cmaj7
   What if we stop having a ball?
G                                        Cmaj7
   What if the paint chips from the wall?
Em7                                         Dsus
   What if there's always cups in the sink?
    B7                       C       G
What if I'm not what you think I am?

G                                    Cmaj7
    What if I fall further than you?
G                                      Cmaj7
    What if you dream of somebody new?
Em7                             Dsus      B7                       C
    What if I never let you win,     chase you with a rolling pin?
                   G
Well what if I do?

 Cmaj7 Dsus  G    G7
I am giving up on making passes and
 Cmaj7 Dsus  G          G7
I am giving up on half empty glasses and
 Cmaj7 Dsus  Em7   A7
I am giving up on greener grasses
 Cmaj7 D       G
I am giving up

What if our baby comes home after nine?
What it your eyes close before mine?
What if you lose yourself sometimes? Then I'll be the one to find you
Safe in my heart

Can you write out the chords for the last chorus, it's a bit different and I can't quite get it?! Thanks, this is definitely the best one!
