I wasn't able to find solid chords to this song, so I created a slightly simplified 
version for anyone to pick up and cover. If you use these chords I would love to see your work!

-- (intro)

A   Amaj7   F#m   Esus4
A   C#m      F#m   Fmaj7

-- (verse 1)

A                Amaj7
You can have Manhattan
F#m                Esus4
I know its for the best
A                  Amaj7
Ill gather up the avenues
F#m                          Esus4
And leave them on your doorstep
Dmaj7        C#m7
And Ill tip toe away
Esus4                 E
So you wont have to say
A                Amaj7       F#m    Fmaj7
You heard me leave

-- (verse 2)

A                     Amaj7
You can have Manhattan
F#m                   Esus4
I know it’s what you want
A                           Amaj7
The bustle and the buildings
F#m                  E
The weather in the fall
Dmaj7        C#m7
And I’ll bow out of place
Esus4                 E
To save you some space
F#m           F#m/E     B
For somebody new

-- (chorus)

D
You can have Manhattan
Dm
Cause I can’t have you

-- (interlude)

A   Amaj7   F#m   Fmaj7
A   Amaj7   F#m   Fmaj7

-- (verse 3)

A                     Amaj7
You can have Manhattan
F#m                   Esus4
The one we used to share
A                           Amaj7
The one where we were laughing
F#m                  E
And drunk on just being there
Dmaj7        C#m7
Hang on to the reverie
Esus4                 E
Could you do that for me?
F#m           F#m/E     B
Cause I’m just too sad to

-- (chorus)

D
You can have Manhattan
Dm
Cause I can’t have you

-- (bridge)

A   Amaj7   F#m   E

D     C#m7    D/B    A
And so it goes
E
One foot after the other
     Dm
Til black and white begin to color in
A   Amaj7    F#m   E
And I know
D       C#m7
That holding us in place
Fmaj7
Is simply fear of what’s already changed

-- (interlude)

A   Amaj7   F#m   E
A   Amaj7 F#m   E

-- (verse)

A                     Amaj7
You can have Manhattan
F#m                   Esus4
I’ll settle for the beach
A                           Amaj7
And sunsets facing westward
F#m                  Fmaj7
With sand beneath my feet
Dmaj7        C#m7
I’ll wish this away
Esus4                 E
Just missing the days
F#m           F#m/E     B
When I was one half of two

-- (chorus)

D
You can have Manhattan
Dm
Cause I can’t have you

-- (outro)

A   Amaj7   F#m   E
A   Amaj7  F#m   Fmaj7
A   Amaj7   F#m   Fmaj7
A  Amaj7   F#m   Fmaj7

i'm pretty sure that the second chord is an Ab#5 004224 like that

i think the chord at the end of the first verse should be an F(aug) with a c# instead of a c.
