One of my favorite songs- the acoustic version is amazing if you haven't already
heard it (available on iTunes). These are perfect. Trust me, I played with the
actual song, and I didn't notice anything off. 
Please rate and comment!

---CAPO 2---

Verse 1:
G	       D
I’ve given up, I'm giving up slowly, 
C
I’m blending in so you won’t even know me 
G           D                     Em    D   C
apart from this whole world that shares my fate
G               D               C
This one last bullet you mention is my one last shot at redemption
G		   D		           Em  D  C
because I know to live you must give your life away

Pre-chorus:
	        Em               C        G       D
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
	   Em                  C             G                 D
I’ve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
	       Em           C                 G               D
And I’ve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
	    F				            C
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go, 
	      D
promise I’m going because

Chorus:
       G    D	          C	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here 
	      G		       D               C          D
	I’m stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
       G    D	          C	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here 
		 Em                D
	And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
	       C           D        G
	I’m begging You to be my escape.

Verse 2:
G		   D
I’m giving up on doing this alone now
C
Cause I’ve failed and I’m ready to be shown how
G	          D	            Em  D    C
He’s told me the way and I’m trying to get there
G	         D
And this life sentence that I’m serving
C
I admit that I’m every bit deserving 
G		    D		          Em   D   C
But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair

Pre-chorus

Chorus:
       G    D	          C	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here 
	       G		  D          C                 D
	I'm afraid that this complacity is something I can't shake
       G    D	          C	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here 
		 Em                 D
	And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
	       C           D        G
	I’m begging You to be my escape.

Bridge:
Em        D   C	      D
I am a hostage to my own humanity
Em       D		     C	          D
Self detained and forced to live in this mess I’ve made
Em	      D	          C	     D
And all I’m asking is for You to do what You can with me
F		        C		      D	
But I can’t ask You to give what You already gave
