And all my demons, you said, come and go with a haze
I might as well took a
I'll grow old in my way.
Just like you do.


(I put the basic chords in here that I think fit but if
you find better ones let me know, I converted the chords Ben uses
when in CGCGGc tuning to standard but some are impossible (4th fret and 12th...) but you 
can play around with these ones if you want to get
a more matching sound
042400
022400
542400  )

Chorus

          G         G/F#             C
Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
           G        G/F#           C
Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear
           G      G/F#           C
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more
     Am  C                G
So be clear, just to be clear
       Am  C      G
So be clear, be clear.

All I am is the bones you made for me
Just driftwood for the sea
Heavy as the horses, that carry me away.
That carry me away.

Chorus and ending:
          G         G/F#             C
Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
           G        G/F#           C
Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear
           G      G/F#           C
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more
       Am  C      G
So be clear, be clear.

          G          G/F#            C
Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
       G       G/F#           C
Oh oh oh no darkness that I fear
     G      G/f#           C
Oh oh oh no way to say I love you more
      Am C               G
So be clear, just to be clear
       Am C       G
So be clear, be clear

(C,G,Am,C x4)
oh oh oh na’s

          G         G/F#             C
no there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
           G        G/F#           C
Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear

I find that E,A, and Cm bar chord work better for the chorus. Just a thought, let me know what you think.
