This is a great acoustic indie tune from the lead singer of Death Cab For Cutie. Thanks 
my girlfriend for sending me this awesome bootleg.


Intro: G


 G                 C      Am
You remind me of home: the paint cracks when the water leaks
 C                                              G
from the rusty pipes that are just beneath my feet
 G                 D      Am
You remind me of home: the heater's warm but fills the room with a
 C                          G
potpourri of dust and gas fumes

 G

 G                 C      Am
You remind me of home: a broken bed with dirty sheets that creaks
 C                          G
when I am shifting in my sleep
 G                 D      Am
You remind me of home: in a suburban town with nothing to do,
 C                                      G
patiently waiting for something to happen
 Em      G           (see riff)  Em    G         (see riff)
But the foundation is crumbling   and becoming one with the ground
 Em      G            (see riff)
while you lay there in slumber...
 Em      G                (see riff)
You're wasting your life, Wasting Your Life
 G                 C    Am
You remind me of home: sitting on a thrift store couch,
 C
I'm trying to get this all down

The studio version of this song is played with Capo 2 and uses the following riff. I've tried to fit it with the lyrics as best as I can:

E|-------------------------|
B|--------------------1-0--|
G|-------2--0--------------|
D|-----0-----------2-------|
A|---2-----------3---------|
E|-------------------------|

"...foundation is crumbling"

E|-------------------------|
B|---------------------0---|
G|-------2--0--------2-----|
D|-----0-----------2-------|
A|---2-----------3---------|
E|-------------------------|

"...with the ground"

E|-------------------------|
B|--------------------1-0--|
G|-------2--0--------------|
D|-----0-----------2-------|
A|---2-----------3---------|
E|-------------------------|

"...in slumber"

E|-------------------------|
B|---------------------0---|
G|-------2--0--------3-----|
D|-----0-----------2-------|
A|---2-----------3---------|
E|-------------------------|

"...wasting your life" (x5)

E|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|-------2--0--------3-0---|
D|-----0-----------2-------|
A|---2-----------3---------|
E|-------------------------|

"...wasting your life"

There is also a hammer-on on the A string during the Intro., between verses, and before the bridge. It's easy just listen for it.
