I need a drink
           C#m
Cause in a while
          D
Worthless answers from
           A
friends of mine
             Bm
It's dumb to ask

cool to ignore
         D
girls possess me but
              A
they're never mine

I made my entrance

  She makes me feel like
     F#m        D
it's raining outside
A               E
  And when the storm's gone
        F#m       D
I'm all torn up inside
A            E         F#m
  I'm always nervous on days

  Remember when I was in

The grocery store
         A
now's my time
         Bm
Lost the words
         C#m
lost the nerve
         D
Lost the girl
         A
left the line
        Bm
I would wish
        C#m
upon a star
          D
But that star
           A
it doesn't shine
           Bm
So read my book
              C#m
with a boring ending
         D
A short story
of a lonely guy

  And when the storm's gone
        F#m       D

For the intro, if you're dead set on using chords the whole time, i think it sounds good if you imitate the picked intro.
So if you do (all down strums):
E x3, Am x3, B x10
E x3, Am x3, B x3, A x7
And repeat once, then go into the song.
At least, I think it sounds good, especially if you're doing this on an acoustic. You can switch out minors and majors if you want, it just sounds good that way in my opinion.
E: 022100
Am: x02210
B: x24442
A: x02220
