C                         G
We can go and walk in the darkness
    F                    C
get relief at each streetlight
I don't know how much it would cost us
         F                                Am
probably more than I've spent in my whole life
         G       F                   C              F
on these silly ideas that waste more time than I had to
                 Am      G     F
lose when I woke up this morning
            C               Am           F               G#       C
seems like I've got so much more to lose now than I ever had before

G     C

     Am     G     F
"...Life on these..." / "... up this morning..."

   C(x2)  Am(x2)  F           G#           C(x2) G(x2)
"I've got so much....before"


C             G             F           C
Little beanie-bean with the calculator keys
              G              F                  Am
can he add it all up, make it all make sense to me
     G       F                 C
I've got no idea how much more time
         F                   Am G    F
I've got left if I can't get my mind right
         C              Am            F           G#      C
the simplest little melody has got me all tangled up in knots
G              C
...I'm tangled up

Chords in this verse are strummed once until the Am at smart... where the Am and G are 
loudly twice:

C                         G
We can go and walk in the morning
              F                       C
We don't need streetlights just a new start
                 G                      F                   Am
Not paralyzed by appearances with big ideas and just way to smart
   G      F            C                      F
to walk around on the surface when there's an ocean
       Am         G          F
just beneath it's blue-green smile
            C                       Am              F              G#   C
And all the while, nothing stopping me from jumping in and sinking fast
G                   C
...I'll sing you to sleep first

I still don't really know how to do the solo but here's a little idea of what I do for a start.
                                 PAUSE         |slow slide|

Then you play the same part as the verse ending...
F / G#    C   G   C    And end with last C strummed once after the little C

But i think the "...Before" part is played like this:
