I have changed a few chords to make it more accurate and collected the Fills in 
one package. Enjoy!

Intro: G D C D 
       G D Cadd Fill 1

Verse 1:
G    D            C             D
In a dream that I can't seem to shake she is,
G      D        Cadd           Fill 1
she is standing alone. 
G      D           C            D   
By the fence I see tears in her eyes 
G             D            Cadd       Fill 2
why she cries I just don't know.

Chorus:
Em     A7          D          G
What a mess that I make of my days. 
Em          A7            D          G
Then there's you, you're a mess to be made, 
  D          G            A7   (Fill 3)                D
a mess to be made and the dream starts to fade away. 

Verse 2:
So you're leaving for months at a time,
I help you out the door. 
But once youre gone i just stare out the window. 
Please, could you please come back home. 

Chorus
Em     A7          D          G    D         G      A7
What a mess that I make of my days trying to save myself, save myself.
Em           A7            D          G 
Then there's you, you're a mess to be made, 
  D        G                A7   
a canvas only paint could change.

Bridge:
D                  C     G          D
And a voice on the other end of the phone, 
                            C          G            D
says, why don't you write a song about it well here goes.
                Cadd           G            Cadd    Fill 2
I was raised on something that you'll never know 
D5                                  
I'd hate this place if it werent for the waves if it 
G                             C          G
weren't for the fact that you love it.
           D5                   C        G               Cadd  
Where they measure a man on the money he spends, well my love
         Fill 2
is not a bank statement.

Chorus: 
Em     A7          D          G    D         G      A7
What a mess that I make of my days trying to save myself, save myself. 
Em           A7            D          G       D          G
Then there's you, you're a mess to be made, a mess to be made,
  D          G            A7                   D
a mess to be made and the dream starts to fade away.
