This is how I play the chords:

G - 3x0033

Em - 022033
D - x00232
Dsus - x00233
D/F# - 200232 (I just use my thumb for the low E string)

But play whatever sounds best to you.

Intro: Em  G  C x2

Verse 1:

Em              G
We used to be something surreal 
C
Others looked to us for what we built
Em              G    
We were envied until the point
C
The point in which we fell
                Em           G                C
We fell by the wayside, and slowly watched ourselves die
                        Em               G
A lonely death in which no one cared and no one came
          D                                        C  
When the walls cave in, we only have ourselves to blame


Chorus:
         Em              D/F#              C
And even if it's dark at least we'll be together
        Em            D/F#            C
Slowly sinking in the earth to lay forever
            Em             D/F#              C
You better grab a hold and hold on for your life
             D
Because you don't get lucky twice


Verse 2: (You don't have to play the chords in the parentheses)

Em         G (D/F#)      C                
      Now even if it's perfect, I can't get carried away
Em           G  (D/F#)  C
      And motivate my tongue in twisted ways
                Em              G                C
It felt like a good night, for dancing and the moonlight
                         Em         G     (D/F#)  D
In empty streets, well, everybody's got a reason why 
            Dsus              C
If we could only just get it right


Chorus:
      Em              D/F#               C
Maybe it will all work out like in the movies
            Em        D/F#            C
But I know Romeo must die before the ending
        Em          D/F#            C
With a final poison kiss delivered gently
             D                                      G   G   Em   C      
Because you don't get lucky twice, and that's the truth


Bridge:

G                                     G  D/F#
Sing to me sweet, just like my memory
            Em           
If New York City still moves me
        C
Then I found something real
G                                    G  D/F#
I'll be okay, I could go on for days
            Em                             D               C
But I just don't have the courage that it takes to be real


Chorus:
         Em              D/F#              C
And even if it's dark at least we'll be together
        Em            D/F#            C
Slowly sinking in the earth to lay forever
            Em             D/F#              C
You better grab a hold and hold on for your life
             D
Because you don't get lucky twice
         D
No, you don't get lucky twice

G   G   Em   C
