Transcribed by ear thanks to iTunes streaming the album before its release :)
Might be easier if you transpose down 2 half-steps on the site and use a capo on 2 (no 
bar chords that way: first chord should be G then)

Artist: Sara Bareilles
Album: The Blessed Unrest
Song: I Choose You


Verse 1:
A                    Amaj7              F#m
Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
D                    Dmaj7        E
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
A                    Amaj7          F#m
I can't say I'd even notice it was absent
D                         Dmaj7           E
Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

Pre-Chorus 1:
F#m                   D
I'll unfold before you
                         B7
What I've strung together

The very first words
      D      E
Of a lifelong love letter

Chorus:
A                      Amaj7                   F#m
Tell the world that we finally got it all right
                D       Dmaj7 E
I choo-oo-oo-oo-oo--oose     you
A                   Amaj7                F#m
I will become yours and you will become mine
                D       Dmaj7    E
I choo-oo-oo-oo-oo--oose     you
                F#m         D              E     A
I choo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oose you
A Amaj7 F#m  D Dmaj7 E
(Yeah)

Verse 2:
There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me that you could not come true
Just love's illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

Pre-Chorus 2:
My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Chorus:
Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

Bridge:
F#m
We are not perfect
      D
We'll learn from our mistakes
       A
And as long as it takes
       E
I will prove my love to you
F#m                     D
I am not scared of the elements
                A                    E
I am underprepared, but I am willing

And even better
E (hold)
I get to be the other half of you

Final Chorus:
A                      Amaj7                   F#m
Tell the world that we finally got it all right
                D       Dmaj7 E
I choo-oo-oo-oo-oo--oose     you
A                   Amaj7                F#m
I will become yours and you will become mine
                D       Dmaj7    E
I choo-oo-oo-oo-oo--oose     you
                D       Dmaj7    E
I choo-oo-oo-oo-oo--oose     you
                F#m         D              E     A
I choo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oose you

Have you compared that to this performance? It looks a little different but hard to tell: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8e5VTlzXgU (I did try playing what you have transposed down with a capo and it does sound really good!)

I made a mistake: The

E
in the Pre-choruses should be a
Dm
It sounds fine with the E, but if you want to do it exactly like her version use the Dm. Thank you for the 5 star rating :)
