Jimmy Eat World - Invented
In the original, the guitar is dropped D (as many others) But You can play it like that:

Standard Tuning

[Intro] 
Dsus2, G, Em7, G

     Dsus2    G             Em7
When I first came to see you 
  G                   Dsus2
I called it Houston street (like the city)
         G     Em7             G
Could we meet? Show me all the things you see?
    Dsus2    G
I'm one more here
      Em7         G
Some old-timer pioneer
      Dsus2       G
Who believes with shaken faith
Em7               G
I still have some cool

        Bm             A           G      
I could leave you here with your 'people'
          Bm               A       G   
If I'm a flag you'd not prefer to wave

[Chorus]
       Dsus2  Em7      G
You're always in my head
       Dsus2     Em7   G
You're just what I wanted
   Dsus2  Em7        G
I live in constant debt
        Dsus2 Em7  G
To feel you, invented

Bm  A  G [x2]

     Dsus2    G        Em7
When I first came to LA 
   G                   Dsus2
I met you the old fashioned way
     G
Too drunk
    Em7         G
And even worse, much too lonely
     Dsus2        G
I'll leave it there
   Em7           G
A busted homesteader
     Dsus2       G
Who believes in virgin grace
Em7                G
Somehow I'll stay proud
    Bm               A      G
Any dick can roll up in a suit
         Bm                A       G
But only I would know what really moves you

[Chorus]
       Dsus2  Em7      G
You're always in my head
       Dsus2     Em7   G
You're just what I wanted
   Dsus2  Em7        G
I live in constant debt
        Dsus2 Em7  G
To feel you, invented

Hold D

[Prelude]G / D/Dsus2 [x6]

[Bridge]
               D       G
There's a cinematic end
          D            A
I picture it just right
                        D          G
Having trouble with the right words
                          D   A
But you tell me with your eyes
                       D          G
There's something good I've missed
          D           A
Something I cant' find
          D           G
Do you believe me now?
                     A
Can you see it in my eyes?
             G
see it in my eyes?
             G 
see it in my eyes?

[Prelude]
D / Dsus2 / D [x16]

[Chorus]
       Dsus2  Em7      G
You're always in my head
       Dsus2     Em7   G
You're just what I wanted
   Dsus2  Em7        G
I live in constant debt
        Dsus2 Em7  G
To feel you, invented

End with D
