I recommend playing this song in Eb Standard tuning, in the key of D!  These chords are 
in original key.

(F#/F is simply dropping the root of the chord one half step to serve as a step down to 
the G#7.  The same is true of the G#/C, which is easiest done by dropping the root a 
single half step.)


Intro: A#m  F#  C#  G# (x2)


                       A#m      F#            C#        G#
I'm burned out with a bright light, I wasn't ready for this.
          A#m       F#           C#               G#
You're adorable as hell, but I'm glancing at your wrists.
                 A#m        F#       C#      G#
Oh, please have faith, I can be so cavalier.
               A#m           F#                 C#         G#
And when they start to ask questions I'll make sure to be clear.


                  F#        F#/F         G#7
When you see my friends, tell them hi for me.
                    C#            G#/C               A#m
Tell them what you think about the way you handled everything.
      F#               F#/F                   G#7
You turned and all you left me with was this broken key.
                      A#m  F#  C#  G#  A#m  
F#  C#  G#
So tell me what you think.


                    A#m     F#                  C#      G#
Give it up for the long nights and all those terrible fights.
          A#m            F#            C#         G#
Were you honest with yourself, every version of yourself?
             A#m         F#          C#    G#
Did you get lost on the side of the road?
             A#m        F#                  C#        G#
If you keep acting this way, I swear I'll never come home.



                  F#        F#/F         G#7
When you see my friends, tell them hi for me.
                    C#            G#/C               A#m
Tell them what you think about the way you handled everything.
     F#                  F#/F            G#7
We walked along on this broken road for eternity
            C#                 G#/C              A#m
So give me company and help me sing this lonely melody.
      F#               F#/F                    G#7
You turned and all you left me with was this broken key.
                      A#m  F#  C#  G#  A#m  
F#  C#  G#
So tell me what you think.


        A#m       F#            C#        G#
Sign me up, no regrets, make a man out of me.
        A#m        F#                C#       G#
And I won't say a word and I'll give all the things
         A#m         F#           C#            G#
That you want and I need just to give me some peace.
         A#m          F#              C#               G#
At the bottom of the ocean there's a place for you and me.
         A#m            F#        C#          G#     
    A#m    F#
Lead the way straight ahead, you gave me the time of my life
       C#          G#           A#m   F#
And it cut like a knife to the bone.


(Acoustic)
                  F#        F#/F         G#7
When you see my friends, tell them hi for me.
                    C#            G#/C               A#m
Tell them what you think about the way you handled everything.
    F#                       F#/F                   G#7
So neat and clean, well the world is full of such pretty things.
                    C#   G#/C  A#m
So do your best for me.


Outro:  F#  F#/F  G#7  C#  
G#/C  A#m  F#  F#/F  G#7  C#

Nice job with the tab. You should mention that a capo on the 1st fret does the same job. That's what I did. :)
