Things get a little weird with the last chorus, but to be honest, it sounds just as good 
with the normal chorus chords.

[Verse 1]

(mostly palm muted)

walkin outside labyrinthian over
cracks along under the trees
i know this town grounded in a compass
cardinal landing in the dogwood
i keep goin over it over & over
my steps iterate my shame
how come every outcome's such a comedown
lately afternoon with the shades drawn down
i kept sayin i just wanted to see you
sayin what's wrong with that?
needle shakin outlines in a compass
every outcome's such a comedown


(strum the first Eadd9 upwards)

i knew it when i
saw it
C#m9     C#m7          C#m
so i did just what i wanted
Bsus4    F#m
so i go through with this
i knew happiness when i saw it

[Verse 2]

(same deal with palm muting)

i saw your boyfriend at the port authority
that's a sort of fucked up place
well so i averted my stride on a quick one
he's coming back from goin over your place, huh
i feel like we could forget about it
i feel like i could mellow out
i don't feel undone in a big way
there's nothing really bad to be upset about, well
just when i thought i was getting better i
woke up on the ground
an appointment or a disappointment
any outcome's such a comedown

[Chorus 2]

Eadd9             C#m7
as if i needed a reminder
C#m9      C#m7        C#m
that i do only what i wanna
Bsus4     F#m
so i go through with this

[Verse 3]

(palm mute and mostly stick to the root notes)

walkin out in the nighttime springtime
needling my way home
i saw leah on the bus a few months ago
i saw some old friends at her funeral
my steps keep splitting my grief through these

(Some weird C#m that looks like: E|-0-9-11-11-x-x-|)

solipsistic moods
i should call my parents when i think of them
i should tell my friends when i love them
maybe i should've got out a bit more
when you guys where still in town
but i got too caught up in my own shit
that's how every outcome's such a comedown

[Final Chorus]

Eadd9            C#m7
i knew it when i saw it
C#m9      C#m7         C#m
so i did just what i wanted
so i go

(Some weird A7 that looks like: E|5-4-6-6-0-0|e, or maybe those top two notes are muted)
through with this i knew happiness

(Some weird Asus/F# that looks like E|2-x-2-2-0-0|e)
when i saw it

The more fleshed out chords add so much color and personality to the song. It's a world of difference. Thank you so much!
