              D#5          F#5        B5
Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
                D#5          F#5        B5
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
    D#5        F#5            B5               C#5
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

              D#5          F#5            B5
I'll show you mine, if you show me your's first.
              D#5         F#5        B5
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you who's is worse.
      D#5           F#5       B5                     C#5
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words...

   C#5           B5          F#5        G#5
We live on front porches and swing life away.
   C#5         B5           F#5     G#5
We get by just fine here on minimum wage.
   C#5       B5          F#5           G#5
If love is a labor, I'll slave til the end.
  C#5               B5            F#5         G#5
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand.

               D#5         F#5                 B5
I been here so long, Think that's it's time to move.
                D#5            F#5      B5
The winter's so cold, summer's over too soon.
      D#5               F#5         B5          C#5
Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow.

              D#5          F#5        B5
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know.
              D#5          F#5        B5
But we've had some times I wouldn't trade for the world.
              D#5          F#5        B5
We chased these days down with talks of the places that we will go...

   C#5           B5          F#5        G#5
We live on front porches and swing life away.
   C#5         B5           F#5     G#5
We get by just fine here on minimum wage.
   C#5       B5          F#5           G#5
If love is a labor, I'll slave til the end.
  C#5               B5            F#5         G#5
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand.

D#5   F#5  B5
Swing life away...
D#5   F#5  B5
Swing life away...
D#5   F#5  B5
Swing life away...
D#5   F#5  B5
Swing life away...

I found this to be very close to the recording. I'm not exactly sure if this is 100% correct, but it sounds pretty damn good. Good job, bro!
