Funny chords:

But if you don't wanna do that play C G C

[Verse]
              C                         G7                    C
A little girl sinks in the deep end and looks up towards the sky 
       F                                           C
Into a little blue world of legs and her feet that look like they're in flight 
      Chord 1                                         C
And a slow motion dance while the water expands the sun's refracted light
         Dm             Am                 G
She just has to pretend she can hear the music

                C                         G7            C
When she starts crying in her goggles the scene becomes unclear
          F                                       C
She keeps peering into this underworld through the filter of her tears 
               Chord 1                              C                                  
Which let her keep hold of the moment as if it was a souvenir
         Dm       Am                          G     Chord 3   G
She just has to pretend she knows how to use it 


[Chorus] 
             F         Am                   Dm
Maybe it's a cold dark truth that makes her cry 
             F         Am                   Dm
Maybe it's a ancient past life memory recalled
             F         Am               Dm
Maybe it's a chemical that got into her eye 
               C       Chord 2     Am
Maybe it's for no good reason at all 
              Riff                C         
Maybe it's for no good reason at all 


[Verse]
               C                               G7                       C
His wife asked how were things at work today as Bill walked through the door 
            F                                                C
He put his coat on the chair, his keys on the table, and his eyes down on the floor 
  Chord 1                                                    C
And he tightened his jaw and he thought how the cause and effects weren't clear anymore
Dm           Am                G     
Figuring out how to say what's wrong 

   C                                    G7                  C
He said I know that I'll be leaving you that's all I really know 
      F                                            C
But I wish I could tell what exactly compels me to turn my steps and go
               Chord 1                                C  
Because there's so much love that you've given me there's so much love that I owe.  
         Dm                  Am           G     Chord 3   G
It's with myself that I can't seem to get along 


[Chorus] 
              F        Am             Dm
Maybe he just felt the hungry hand of fate 
               F    Am               Dm
Maybe he won't rest until he sees it fall 
             F              Am              Dm
Maybe it's a mood that he's in just for the day 
               C       Chord 2       Am
Maybe it's for no good reason at all 
              Riff                C        
Maybe it's for no good reason at all


[Verse]
   C                                 G7          C
An actor was found dead today in his Culver City home 
            F                                  C
And with no evidence of foul play it seemed he acted on his own 
    Chord 1                                    C 
The position of his body looked like he was reaching for the phone
Dm               Am               G     Chord 3   G
Makes you wonder who he was gonna call 


[Chorus] 
              F           Am             Dm
Maybe all his demons were settling their debts
              F               Am                Dm
Maybe all the pressure finally drove him to the wall
                 F              Am         Dm
Maybe there were secrets that he needed to protect 
               C       Chord 2       Am
Maybe it's for no good reason at all
               Riff  
Maybe it's for no good reason
Riffy 
No good reason 
Riff it up          C 
No good reason at all

The chord voicings given here are not clear.

"The Caug Chord is xx2111" ==> that's an Fm/E; Caug should be x-3-2-1-1-0
"Amj7 is x02110" ==> that's an Eaug or Caug/E; Amaj7 should be x-0-2-1-2-0
"Gsus4 is 3x201x" ==> that's a C/G; Gsus4 should be 3-x-0-0-1-3

Which chords do you actually mean? Are the names wrong or the voicings?

Thanks for the feedbakc, you are absoloutely right, I meant that in this tab where I write Caug you should play xx2111, I did my best to work out the correct chord names but clearly got them wrong!
