This is such a beautiful and simple song; I don't know
why anyone hasn't made a correct, definitive chord sheet of it.

Anyway, here goes my version.

CHORD CHART
C   032010
F   133211
Am  x02210  or  577555
G   320033  or  355433

INTRO: C - F    x3
       G - F

VERSE 1:
C               F                  
Thursday night, everything's fine, 
C                        F
except you've got that look in your eye
         C                   F                 
when I'm tellin' a story and you find it boring,
       G                        F
you're thinking of something to say.
           C                  F                   
You'll go along with it then drop it 
         C      F 
and humilliate me
            C            F
in front of our friends.

G - F

VERSE 2:
     C                         F
Then I'll use that voice that you find annoyin'
        C
and say something like
                   F
"yeah, intelligent input, darlin',
                   C                       F
why don't you just have another beer then?"

G - F

VERSE 3:
             C
Then you'll call me a bitch
     F                        C
and everyone we're with will be embarrassed,
    F           C       F
and I wont give a shit.

G - F

CHORUS 1:
    F
My fingertips are holding 
         Am
onto the cracks in our foundation,
       G
and I know that I should let go,
    F
but I can't.
    Am                                  G
And every time we fight I know it's not right,
                                   F
every time that you're upset and I smile.
                            G
i know I should forget, but I can't.

VERSE 4:
C                   F
You said I must eat so many lemons
C                F
    'cause I am so bitter.
C
I said
               F
"I'd rather be with your friends mate 
  G                   F
'cause they are much fitter."

VERSE 5:
C                        F          
Yes, it was childish and you got aggressive,
C                     F
and I must admit that I was a bit scared,
C               F                    G  F
but it gives me thrills to wind you up.

CHORUS 2:
    F
My fingertips are holding 
         Am
onto the cracks in our foundation,
       G
and I know that I should let go,
    F
but I can't.
    Am                                  G
And every time we fight I know it's not right,
                                   F
every time that you're upset and I smile.
                            G
I know I should forget, but I can't.

VERSE 6:
C            F      
Your face is pasty 
        C                      F
'cause you've gone and got so wasted,
         C 
what a surprise.
              F                G
Don't want to look at your face
                    F
 'cause it's makin' me sick.

VERSE 7:
C               F              C    
You've gone and got sick on my trainers,
       F              C
I only got these yesterday.
             F                    G             F     
Oh, my gosh, I cannot be bothered with this.

VERSE 8:
C                                    F
Well, I'll leave you there 'till the mornin',
      C                        F
and I purposely won't turn the heating on
     C               F                  G          F
and dear God, I hope I'm not stuck with this one.

CHORUS 3:
    F
My fingertips are holding 
         Am
onto the cracks in our foundation,
       G
and I know that I should let go,
    F
but I can't.
    Am                                  G
And every time we fight I know it's not right,
                                   F
every time that you're upset and I smile.
                            G
I know I should forget, but I can't.

OUTRO:
    F                                   Am
And every time we fight I know it's not right,
                                   G
every time that you're upset and I smile.
                            F
I know I should forget, but I can't.

    Am                                  G
And every time we fight I know it's not right,
                                   F
every time that you're upset and I smile.
                            G
I know I should forget, but I can't.

F - Am - G - F
Am - G - F - G

Oh gosh thanks for posting an accurate one!
It's SUCH an easy(and great) song,
I think it might be a bit better if you alinged the chord progression with the lyrics but I get that thats hard the way Kate connects a buch of words in a single chord.
Amazing song, I just discovered Kate yesterday d: (tmi)
