Woke up early this mornin'
A                D   A
To a thunder and rainstorm
A            F#m                 
Last night I forgot to close
   D
My windows
A
My home's been broken
A                           D    A  
And my heart has been blown wide open
                   F#m   
I don't wanna feel angry
                   E
I don't wanna feel empty
                D
I don't want no sympathy

Chorus:
F#m   
Who am I to blame?
           D               A
What can I say? I'll never learn
F#m   
Going down in flames
D                   A
Walk away, watch me burn
D                   F#m          E
Walk away, watch me burn

Verse 2:
A
I was thinking 'bout my place in the universe
A              D       A
Looking at the Earth's curve
F#m   
How much my little heart can hurt
D
Some people got a lot of nerve
A
I'm not afraid
A                          D      A
No, I never been afraid of failure
                   F#m   
I'm not afraid of global warmin'

Or the market crashin'
D
Or the terrorists attackin'

Chorus:
F#m   
Who am I to blame?
           D               A
What can I say? I'll never learn

Going down in flames
D                   A
Walk away, watch me burn
D                   F#m   
Walk away, watch me burn

Bridge:
F#7                 E

I swam in the ocean in the night
                        F#m
Under the stars      so clear
Bm                          E
My pale body bouncin' in the waves
                F#m       B                    E
I felt I could disappear, I'm still here, yes, I am

Chorus:
F#m   
Who am I to blame?

Going down in flames
D          A
Walk away, watch me burn

Almost perfect. Only corrections...

-in the chorus, those chords go at the end, not the beginning

D
I dont' want no sympathy

D F#m
Who am I to blame?

-Also, in the bridge, it should be

Bm F#m
I swam in the ocean in the night
A F#m
Under the stars so clear
Bm F#m
My pale body bouncin' in the waves
A B E
I felt I could disappear, I'm still here, yes, I am

Other than that, good job.

Thanks for the feedback! I took another look and I believe the chords I submitted are still correct. If you watch the live recording, which is the same as the album, you can better see what Brett is playing.

See 3:00 for the bridge

the chords are right--the timing could be fixed, but otherwise, they are good! Your bridge is correct, too. I will say, however, that, in order to play the natural harmonics on the song, you need to play with open (A) tuning.
