This is an approximation of the chords he plays (see the video above if you want to 
see how he plays it):

G:   355433
D:   557775 or 55433x
Em7: 779787
Bm:  799777
C:   8 10 10 9 8 8
Am(add9): 577500



[Verse]
G                                     D
Don't give me something to hold in my hand
                        Em7
Something else to believe in
           Bm
Cause I'm over it
        C
And your reason for wanting to stay
     G     
Your reason for wanting to change
   D                          Em7
My reason for everything I've done to you...


[Chorus]
                       Am(add9)
I have tried but I don't fit
                      Em7  
Into this box I'm living with
           Am(add9) 
I could go wild
              Em7
But you might lock me up
                            Am(add9)
And I have tried but I don't fit
                       Em7
Into this box you call a gift
           Am(add9)
I could be wild and free
                              Em7
But god forbid then you might envy me


[Verse]
         G                                 D
So don't give me love with an old book of rules
                                      Em7
'cause that kind of love is just for fools
        Bm
And I'm over it
          C
And my reasons for walking away
     G 
My reasons for wanting to change
     D                      Em7
My reasons for everything I lost with you...


[Chorus]
                       Am(add9)
I have tried but I don't fit
                      Em7  
Into this box I'm living with
           Am(add9) 
I could go wild
              Em7
But you might lock me up
                            Am(add9)
And I have tried but I don't fit
                       Em7
Into this box you call a gift
           Am(add9)
I could be wild and free
                              Em7
But god forbid then you might envy me...


[Chorus/Outro] (some lyrics are just hummed here)==
                       Am(add9)
I have tried but I don't fit
                      Em7  
Into this box I'm living with
           Am(add9) 
I could go wild
              Em7
But you might lock me up
                            Am(add9)
And I have tried but I don't fit
                       Em7
Into this box you call a gift
           Am(add9)
I could be wild and free
                              Em7
But god forbid then you might envy me
           Am(add9)
I could be wild and free
                              Em7
But god forbid then you might envy me

Thanks for your comment! I think we are seeing the same thing, but backwards? I'm seeing this:

EADGBe
577500

This is something like an Am(add9). Here is how I see him play it: http://i.imgur.com/HzYpkPx.png

Is this what you meant? It sounds right to me...
