D# G# C# F# A# D#
I find playing it this way easier than playing
lots of sharp and flat chords but it means tuning down one semi-tone:
D#  G#  C#  F#  A#  D#
This is the tab for the long version of this
song which you can hear here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr6ieHPOllo

The shorter version (the one with the video) doesnt include the 3 
verses/chorus after the first verse so basically jump from the end of the 
first verse to:
Im happy for you, Now I know this hurt is poison.
Anyway you can listen to that version here:

Intro: G C G C G D C G (x2 on long version)

G
I'm glad to see you
C
I had a funny dream
        Bm         Am
You were wearing funny shoes
        Bm         Am
You were going to a dance
        Bm                              C      Bm     D
You were dressed like a punk but you were too young to remember


G
Glad to see you
C
I'm outside the house
        Bm            Am
I'm not thinking right today
     Bm       Am
I've got no energy
        Bm         C          Bm
I'm glad that you were waiting with me
D
Tell me all about your day


Em              D
Breaking off is misery
        C            G
I see a wilderness for you and me
     C          Bm
Punctuated by philosophy
       D                                  C
I’m wondering how things could've been


G
I'm happy for you
C
You've made it hard for me
        Bm           Am
I counted on your company
        Bm              Am
You were staying with your friends tonight
        Bm         C
I'm feeling sorry for myself
          Bm    D
I keep taking everything to be to be a sign


G
I'm happy for you
C
Now I know this hurt is poison
Bm            Am
Too sharp to be bled
Bm              Am
I'm sitting on my empty bed
        Bm
On my empty bed
   C       Bm  D
At night the fever grows it's pounding pounding


Em             D
I'd rather be in Tokyo
        C          G
Id rather listen to Thin Lizzy-oh
        C               Bm
Watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
        D               C              G
There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo


G C G C G D C G x 2


G            C
Scary moment, lovin' every moment
     Bm                 Am
I was high from playing shows
        Bm              Am
We lost a singer to her clothes
    Bm                  Am
My trouble raised its ugly head
        Bm
I was revealed
        C
And I was home in bed
Bm      D
I was a kid again


G               C
Jesus told me, go after every coin
        Bm               Am
Like it was the last in the world
        Bm              Am
And protect the wayward child
        Bm
But I'm a little lost sheep
        C
I need my Bo peep
                Bm              D
I know I need my Shepherd here tonight


Em              D
Breaking off is misery
        C            G
I see a wilderness for you and me
     C          Bm
Punctuated by philosophy
        D               C         G
Im wondering how things could've been


Middle 8:  C  A  D  B  Em__ A  D


C
I’d like to see you
C
But really I should stay away
   Bm           Am
And let you settle down
        Bm              Am
I've got no claims to your crown
        Bm
I was the boss of you
        C
And I loved you
        Bm
You know I loved you
D
It's all over now


G               C
I was there for you
When you were lonely
        Bm              Am
I was there when you were bad
        Bm              Am
I was there when you were sad
        Bm
Now it's my time of need
           C            Bm     D
I’m thinking, do I have to plead to get you by my side?


Em              D
I'd rather be in Tokyo
        C          G
Id rather listen to Thin Lizzy-oh
        C               Bm
Watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
        D               C
There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo


G C G C G D C G x 2

End on G
