***Again, these are the BASIC ROOT NOTES I am noting about the lyrics, just as guidance***


(no guitar)
F                 G                    A           Bb
 She wore a black jacket in the winter sun beatdown
  F                  A                       Bb             C
I guess it was early spring and we were in a park in chinatown
A             E           F                  Bb
If I wear the jacket, her chest and limbs all  wrapped around
        A                E              F       Bb
I would soak up all that light into my lining

(guitar enters)
F                G                       A            Bb
  I leaned in to feel the warmth pouring off her skin
     F                   A                   Bb              C
As I tried to breath her essence like it was precious oxygen
    A                E          F                Bb
And she took off her jacket the second we walked in
    A                   E                   F         Bb
And I soaked up all the light from the flourescence


G                   A       Bb       A
What was I supposed to say    to her  
G                A      Bb
  in the grocery aisle, in the air conditioning?
G                   A       C
What was i supposed to say    to her?
      D          C     Bb
I was coming up empty, coming up...


            F                 G       A                          Bb
I was on my phone for half an hour, embleached in the white light  glare
F                  A                 Bb                    C
sitting at the sports bar 'cause the game was playing there
          A                 E                 F                 Bb
and their hometown team was down by ten but I really didn't care
       A                 E                F           Bb
I just soaked up all the light from the flatscreens


F            G             A          Bb
  oh where could my little darling be?
F                  A               Bb                  C
most of the money I've spent, I've spent it in your company
        A                E                     F                   Bb
now I'm looking for some earliesness(?) and my mind won't let me be
       A                E              F         Bb
'til I soak up all that light into my lining


G                   A       Bb       A
What was I supposed to say    to her  
G                A      Bb
  in the grocery aisle, in the air conditioning?
G                   A       C
What was i supposed to say    to her?
      D          C     Bb
I was coming up empty, coming up...


A           A               Bb               A
  all day I did not know if we'd break up or I'd propose
G                            A
we walked out into the april   glowing
A          A          Bb                  A          
come to me now, muse, tell me something I can't confuse
G                                    A
sing me something I'll never lose in   knowing...


G                   A       Bb       A
What was I supposed to say    to her  
G                A      Bb
  in the grocery aisle, in the air conditioning?
G                   A       C
What was i supposed to say    to her?
      D          C     
I was coming up empty

G                   A       Bb       A
What was I supposed to say    to her  
G                A      Bb
  in the grocery aisle, in the air conditioning?
G                   A       C
What was i supposed to say    to her?
      D          C     Bb
I was coming up empty, coming up...


Alternatively, you can tune your G string down to a F and keep the capo.
Your chords will look roughly like this. It's a lot easier to play with minor downsides.
    F    G    A    Bb   C    A    E    F     G   A    Bb   C    D     A    A    Bb   G
