One of my favorite songs- the acoustic version is amazing if you haven't already
heard it (available on iTunes). These are perfect. Trust me, I played with the
actual song, and I didn't notice anything off.

---CAPO 2---

[Verse]

G              D
I’ve given up, I'm giving up slowly, 
C
I’m blending in so you won’t even know me 
G           D                     Em    D   C
apart from this whole world that shares my fate
G               D               C
This one last bullet you mention is my one last shot at redemption
G                  D                       Em  D  C
because I know to live you must give your life away


[Pre-Chorus]

                Em               C        G       D
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
           Em                  C             G                 D
I’ve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
               Em           C                 G               D
And I’ve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            F                                       C
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go, 
              D
promise I’m going because


[Chorus]

       G    D             C       D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
              G                D               C          D
        I’m stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
       G    D             C       D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
                 Em                D
        And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
               C           D        G
        I’m begging You to be my escape.


[Verse]

G                  D
I’m giving up on doing this alone now
C
Cause I’ve failed and I’m ready to be shown how
G                 D                 Em  D    C
He’s told me the way and I’m trying to get there
G                D
And this life sentence that I’m serving
C
I admit that I’m every bit deserving 
G                   D                     Em   D   C
But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair


[Pre-Chorus]

                Em               C        G       D
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
           Em                  C             G                 D
I’ve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
               Em           C                 G               D
And I’ve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            F                                       C
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go, 
              D
promise I’m going because


[Chorus]

       G    D             C       D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
               G                  D          C                 D
        I'm afraid that this complacity is something I can't shake
       G    D             C       D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
                 Em                 D
        And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
               C           D        G
        I’m begging You to be my escape.


[Bridge]

Em        D   C       D
I am a hostage to my own humanity
Em       D                   C            D
Self detained and forced to live in this mess I’ve made
Em            D           C          D
And all I’m asking is for You to do what You can with me
F                       C                     D 
But I can’t ask You to give what You already gave 


[Pre-Chorus]

                Em               C        G       D
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
           Em                  C             G                 D
I’ve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
               Em           C                 G               D
And I’ve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            F                                       C
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go, 
              D
promise I’m going because


[Chorus]

       G    D             C       D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
               G                  D          C                 D
        I'm afraid that this complacity is something I can't shake
       G    D             C       D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
                 Em                 D
        And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
               C           D        G
        I’m begging You to be my escape.
