Status Quo (Darren Criss Livestream Version)

This is tabbed from the livestream. I think it´s mostly correct except for some chords 
where I couldn´t exactly see what he was doing.

Capo on 7th


G~     = 320013
E7sus4 = 020200
D/F#   = 2x0232

(couple of times, also during the first bit of lyrics)

It starts with not questioning the answers
And giving up before you've begun
It locks all the doors, increases the pressure
And in a flash your time is up before it's done
A7                    C        F
And you won't know how it can feel
            Fm
To feel at all



         Am Fmaj7 C       G Dm Am
So I say no-o-o to status quo-o-o
F                        C
Who wants to be like the rest
            G~                    G  E7
And deny the best that I'm meant for
      Am Fmaj7 C           G  Dm Am
I wil show-o-ow the status quo-o-o
       F                          C
Who wants to be normal I'll never conform
       Dm                              (intro bit 1x)
I will be content to resent the status quo-o-o

   A7                 F
I'll kick down the walls around me
Am                   G~
They don't know how strong I am
  C                F
I'm not defined by boundaries
Am               G~      F
They could never understand





CHORUS
            Fm Gm Eb7 Bb              F 
Cm Gm    Fm
I'm so much more -o-  ore than status quo-o-o
     Eb                Bbm7 ?               F           G~
Who cares about being another pipe dreamer stuck on the bottom floor


       Dm  Fmaj7 C               G  E Am
And I know-o    -ow it's time to go-o- o
              F                             C
so maybe I've gotten everything that I wanted
                      Dm
But I think that I might have made it so
           F  F  Fm
When I said no no no
           C G (?) E
To status quo-o-o-o


[Fmaj7   C]   [G~  G]  [E7 E7sus4]


G     D/F#   A        D
Cause I am a starship ranger
G         D/F#       A      D
I'm gonna do   everything I can
G         D/F#   E        E7
To always be a   starship ranger
             ** Em               Bbm   Cm   Bbm 
Cm  Bbm Cm  Bbm Cm  Bbm
Cause it's everything, it's everything
D **
I Am!

End on D



* He does a little run down here that goes:
            Em
I-----------0---------|
I-----------0---------|
I-----------0---------|
I-----------2---------|
I-----------2---------|
I--3--2--0--0---------|

** During the outro, the D shape is moved up and strummed. Check out the video if you

So on the part right before the starship ranger section at the end, on the line 'To status quo-o-o-o', I think the chord progression is 'C G E7 Am'. I didn't check the livestream to see if that's what Darren played but it sounds right to me!
