You can choose to play the remaining strings open for C/G and Em, especially for the prechorus and chorus.

Most, if not all of the Asus4s are played for one beat as a transition in/out of chords. Listen to the song
to get the exact feel for the strumming throughout.


[Intro] X2

G  Gsus2  G   C/G  Gsus4 C/G Asus4
Em Asus4  B/F#  C/G  Gsus4  C/G


[Verse]

 G           Gsus2  G         C/G   
There are no ideas left in my head
         Gsus4    C/G   Asus4
None left to sit with
Em                 Asus4  B/F#         C/G    Gsus4     
Just time and weight and trash to take out.
 G           Gsus2      G         C/G   Gsus4   C/G
We've been waking up to the same sound
Asus4 Em         Asus4 B/F#  C/G  Gsus4
And ride to work downtown


[Prechorus]

Gsus4
Downtown
Asus4 Em  Asus4 B/F#
Downtown
     C/G  Gsus4
Downtown
Asus4 Em  Asus4 B/F#
Downtown
     C/G  Gsus4  C/G   Gsus4
Downtown


[Chorus]
C/G            Asus4  Em Asus4
Shiny, shimmering thing
B/F#
Let me get
C/G            Asus4  Em Asus4
Shiny, shimmering thing
B/F#
Let me get
C/G            Asus4  Em Asus4
Shiny, shimmering thing
B/F#          C/G  Gsus4  C/G
Let me get closer


[Verse 2]
 G         Gsus2  G              C/G   
Day in, day out runs through my head
         Gsus4  C/G  Asus4
What you told her
Em               Asus4 B/F# C/G    Gsus4     C/G
That this is all we do any more
 G     Gsus2      G        C/G   Gsus4   C/G  Asus4
Dirty hands soak in bleach water
Em         Asus4 B/F#  C/G  Gsus4
This is all we do any more.


[Prechorus]
Gsus4
Anymore
Asus4 Em  Asus4 F
Anymore
     C/G  Gsus4
Anymore
Asus4 Em  Asus4 F
Anymore
     C/G  Gsus4  C/G   Gsus4
Anymore


[Chorus]
C/G           Asus4  Em Asus4
Shiny, shimmering thing
F
Let me get
C/G          Asus4  Em Asus4
Shiny, shimmering thing
F
Let me get
C/G          Asus4  Em Asus4
Shiny, shimmering thing
F          C/G  Gsus4  Asus4 
Let me get closer
Em  Asus4  F 
Get closer
C/G  Gsus4  C/G
Closer

Then she just plays that last "closer" part a few more times with minor variations (arpeggios and such).
