The other version of the chords for this song here is okay, I just personally 
think if you play it acoustically it sounds better this way, and from the bridge 
on the chords change.

It's easy when you play it all in bar chords.

WHY'D YOU ONLY CALL ME WHEN YOU'RE HIGH?

Intro: 
[play it the same timing as the bass on the recording, each note a chord]
F#m C#5 D5 B5 C#5 B5 A5
[this continues until the bridge]

Verse 1:
The mirror's image, it tells me it's home time
but I'm not finished, 'cause you're not by my side
and as I arrived I thought I saw you leaving,
carrying your shoes,
decided that once again I was just dreaming
of bumping into you

Chorus:
Now it's three in the morning
and I'm trying to change your mind
left you multiple missed calls
and to my message you replied:
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"
High.
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"

Verse 2:
Somewhere darker, talking the same shite
I need a partner, well are you out tonight?
It's getting harder and harder to get you to listen,
more I get through the gears,
incapable of making alright decisions
and having bad ideas

Chorus:
Now it's three in the morning
and I'm trying to change your mind
left you multiple missed calls
and to my message you replied:
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"
High.
"Why'd you only call me when you're high?"

Bridge:
B5    D5             F#m
         And I can't see you here, wonder where I might
B5    D5            F#m
         it sort of feels like I'm running out of time
B5    D5           F#m
         I haven't found what I was hoping to find
B5    D5                       C#5
         You said you're gonna be up in the morning gonna have an early night
     C#5
"And you're starting to bore me, baby, 
why'd you only call me when you're high?"

D5          C#5 F#m      [x4]
[play D5 for four beats and hit C#5 only once before you go down to F#m which you 
play for the next four beats. if that makes sense. i hope the placement of the 
chords on the last line makes that clear because the chords are the same.]

          D5                      C#5    F#m
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high? [x4]

instead of A in the verses, I think an E major chords sounds a bit better.
