Hey there, the other one didn't work for me so this is my own version. Any 
corrections are welcome!

Linkin Park - Blackbirds

   Dm
I shiver and shake the warm air cold 
                 Bb   C   
I'm alone on my own                      
   Dm                                   
In every mistake I dig this hole                  
                     Bb    C
Through my skin and bones

      Bb       C      Dm
It's harder starting over 
      Bb             C
Than never to have changed

     Bb             C
With Blackbirds following me 
       Dm            Dsus2          
I'm digging out my grave 
       Bb          C
They close in, swallowing me 
     Dm               Dsus2
The pain, it comes in waves 
     Bb           C     Dm
I'm getting back what I gave

  Dm
I sweat through the sheet as daylight fades  
             Bb   C
As I waste away 
Dm
It traps me inside mistakes Ive made 
                    Bb  C 
That's the price I pay


      Bb       C      Dm
It's harder starting over 
      Bb             C
Than never to have changed

        Bb         C
With Blackbirds following me 
    Dm             Dsus2
Im digging out my grave 
       Bb         C
They close in, swallowing me 
     Dm                Dsus2 
The pain, it comes in waves 
     Bb           C     Dm
I'm getting back what I gave


I drop to the floor like I did before 
Stop watching / I'm coughing / I can't be more            
What I want and what I need are at constant war               
Like a well full of poison / a rotten core 
The blood goes thin / the fever stings 
And I shake from the hell that the habits bring 
Let the sick ones down / the bells will ring 
Put pennies on the eyes / let the dead men sing


   Bb         C
Blackbirds following me 
    Dm             Dsus2
Im digging out my grave 
       Bb         C
They close in, swallowing me 
     Dm                Dsus2 
The pain, it comes in waves 
     Bb           C     Dm
I'm getting back what I gave
 
     Bb           C     Dm
I'm getting back what I gave
     Bb           C     Dm
I'm getting back what I gave
     Bb           C     Dm
I'm getting back what I gave


So this was my first chord, i hope it works for you too! :)

Everything is right, just the first chord from the chorus, i think it's Dm insted of Bb. something like this:

Dm C
With Blackbirds following me
Bb C
I'm digging out my grave
Dm C
They close in, swallowing me
Bb C
The pain, it comes in waves
Bb C Dm
I'm getting back what I gave

I am not 100% sure, but to me, it sounds better this way. I hope i helped.

I am so ashamed, just listened to the song once again, noticed you were right, SO sorry.

I also think you're missing some chords in there somewhere,listen to the bass during the first verse. it changes quite a bit more than the chord changes you have written here. What you've got sounds right, it just sounds like it's a little lacking.
