G 
Exhibit ABm                                Em
We are friends in a sleeping bag, splitting the heat
        G                    C              G              C
We have one filthy pillow to share and your lips are in my hair
G                      Bm 
Someone upstairs has a rat that we laughed at
    Em
And people are drinking
    G                     C           G       C
And singing Van Halen and Slayer on a ukulele tear

G
Exhibit B
Bm        
Well, we found an apartment
Em
It's not much to look at
G            C
A futon on a floor
         G             C
Torn-off desktop for a door
G                       Bm
All the decor's made of milk crates and duct tape
Em
And if we have sex
         G                   C
They can hear us through the floor
             G          C
But we don't do that anymore
       
    G                      Em
And I lay there wondering, what is the matter?
G                   Em
Is this a matter of worse or of better?
G                        Em
You took the blanket, so I took the bedsheet
G                            Em
But I would have held you if you'd only
C
Let me

G
Exhibit C
Bm
Look how quaint
                  Em
And how quiet and private
                   G                    C
Our paychecks have bought us a condo in town
         G           C
It's the nicest flat around
G                         Bm
You picked a mattress and had it delivered
    Em
And I walked upstairs
        G                         C
And the sight of it made my heart pound
      G               C
And I wrapped my arms around me
       
    G                        Em
And I stood there wondering, what is the matter?
G                   Em
Is this a matter of worse or of better?
G                            Em
You walked right past me and straightened the covers
G                                 Em       C
But I would still love you if you wanted a lover


        C                           Em    D/F#   G  Cdim/G#  Am      Bm       C     
But you said, 'All the money in the world won't buy a       bed so big and wide,
                           Em D/F# G     Cdim/G# Am       Bm     C                           
to guarantee that you won't acci - dentally      touch me in the night.' 

G
Exhibit D
Bm
Now we're both mostly paralyzed
Em                             G             C
Don't know how long we've been lying here in fear
      G            C
Too afraid to even feel
G                     Bm
I find my glasses and you turn the light out
       Em
Roll off on your side
            G               C
Like you've rolled away for years
        G                    C
Holding back those king-size tears

    G                      Em
And I still don't ask you, what is the matter?
G                   Em
Is this a matter of worse or of better?
G                  
You take the heart failure
Em
I'll take the cancer
G                           Em            C
I've long stopped wondering why you don't answer

G
Exhibit E
        Bm                   Em
You can certainly see how fulfilling a life
         G                C            G             C
From the cost and size of stone of our final resting home
G                           Bm
We got some nice ones right under a cherry tree
Em                   G           C
You and me lying the only way we know
        G                  C
Side by side and still and cold

    G                  Em
And I finally ask you, what was the matter?
G                  Em
Was it a matter of worse or of better?
G                             Em
You stretch your arms out and finally face me
        G                           
You say I would have told you
   Em         C
If you'd only asked me
   Em         C
If you'd only asked me
   Em         C
If you'd only asked me

Close, but the chorus should be Em G C (which is also the fill in between verses). I also like to add a Cadd9 after the lines ending with Cs sometimes to emulate the piano riff in the song.
