[Intro]
 Gsus2    Em7      Em7*
 Gsus2    Em7      Em7*
 
[Verse 1]      
       Gsus2             Em7        Em7*
Strong winds and my   heads on     fire
 Gsus2                 Em7              Em7*
Walk another day a    cross the high    wire
 C/G                                 D/A 
I'm on a tightrope watch it as it swings 
 C/G                                 D/A 
Like a countdown ticker on New Year's Eve

[Verse 2]      
       Gsus2          Em7             Em7*
We run the numbers, spinning in the side
 Gsus2                 Em7                              Em7*
 Counting all the reasons that we are broken and we lied
 C/G                                D/A 
I'm on a tightrope watch it as it swings 
 C/G                                            D/A 
Heating up the metal, putting pressure on the springs

[Chorus]
        Em7     F#                G **    C **      
And     all     I     want is for   you    to 
Dsus2  .Cadd9. Dsus2 Cadd9 Dsus2 Cadd9 
  make          me smi ..             le…      
        Em7      F#                G     C **       
And     all     I     want is   for   you   to     
Dsus2  .Cadd9. Dsus2 Cadd9 Dsus2 Cadd9 
  drive         me   wil ..          d… 

[Verse 3]      
            Gsus2            Em7            Em7*
Pretty      candles on a    birthday        cake
 Gsus2                            Em7          Em7*
Covered in confetti with the     caffeine     shakes
 C/G                                   D/A 
Fuck all that money, everything is trash 
 C/G                                      D/A 
Papers in the glove box, light it up and pass

[Verse 4]
 Gsus2                        Em7        Em7*
Flip on the news we  watch it til we      sleep
          Gsus2                                     Em7   
Ain't       nothing but static and the  panic and the feeling manic
 C/G                                     D/A 
I'm on a tightrope watch it as it swings 
 C/G                                              D/A 
Heating up the metal, putting pressure on the springs

[Chorus]
        Em7     F#                G **    C **      
And     all     I     want is for   you    to 
Dsus2  .Cadd9. Dsus2 Cadd9 Dsus2 Cadd9 
  make          me smi ..             le…      
        Em7      F#                G     C **       
And     all     I     want is   for   you   to     
Dsus2  .Cadd9. Dsus2 Cadd9 Dsus2 Cadd9 
  drive         me   wil ..          d… 

[Outro]
 Gsus2    Em7      Em7*
 Gsus2    Em7      Em7*
 C/G  slide D/A   C/G slide  D/A   C/G  slide  D/A   C/G

I think the F# is more of a G/f# kind of thing.
