Verse 1
Am       F            C         *
 Adia I do believe I failed you
Am        F               Em    G
 Adia I know I've let you down
C                   F               C       E     Am
 Don't you know I tried so hard to love you in my way
       D           C     G
 It's easy let it go

Am        F                C       *
 Adia I'm empty since you left me
Am                 F           Em    G
 Trying to find a way to carry on
C                    F            C                  G
 I search myself and everyone to see where we went wrong

         Dm              G              C               F
 There's no one left to finger there's no one here to blame
         Dm              G          
 There's no one left to talk to, honey
           C               Bb           F
 And there ain't no one to buy our innocence

Chorus
         G      C        A7
 'Cause we are born innocent
            F        Dm        G    Em
 Believe me Adia, we are still innocent
      A7           Dm               E7
 It's easy, we all falter; does it matter?


Verse 2
Am        F                    C       *
 Adia I thought that we could make it
Am                F                 Em    G
 I know I can't change the way you feel
     C                  F              C                 G
 I leave you with your misery, your friend who won't betray
   Dm                  G        C              F
 I pull you from your tower, I take away your pain
    Dm                G                C
 I show you all the beauty you possess
                Bb              F
 If you'd only let yourself believe

Chorus
       G      C        A7
 That we are born innocent
            F        Dm        G    Em
 Believe me Adia, we are still innocent
      A7           Dm               E7
 It's easy, we all falter; does it matter?

 Believe me Adia, we are still innocent
      A7           Dm               
 It's easy, we all falter; does it matter?

Sarah Mclachlan - Adia

Chords: written as if there was no capo,chords are the same with capo but from the capo up the neck. the 3 chords listed are the one i've corrected for this tab. the C13/Bb indicates that it has a bass note of Bb. the A7 chords should be diminished chords and all Dm should be Dm7, play as diagrammed below:
Dm7 X X 0 2 1 1
C13/Bb X 1 2 0 1 0
C#dim X 4 5 3 5 0

In the future, please limit your corrections to a list of defects and your corrections to them. There is no need to copy my transcription into your comment; 1) the formatting is lost when someone tries to print it and 2) IF there are changes to be made, something overlooked or misheard, I will edit my version to include your correction(s) and thank you for your contribution.

Dm7 instead of Dm? Sure. I don't hear this in her piano part but it fits nicely leading to G. C13/Bb? The 13th from C is A and chords named with compound intervals include other intervals in between. For example, C9 = C E G Bb and D whereas Cadd9 = C E G D. Do you mean C7/Bb? I played it in context and it does sound good, pulling to the F chord but I keep hearing just the plain Bb chord feeling like a bVII in the key of C, so I'll ask others learning this song to decide which they should use. As for the A7, I originally played C#dim = x42020 but opted for A7/C# simplified to A7. I don't hear the Bb included in your C#dim7 at all.

4/5 it's OK. Not original key but this is a song with a lot of colorful chords and this tab does not do it justice. e.g the C7 should be Dbdim and Edim on the last chorus. I would add maj7s and 7's on a lot of the chords aswell...
I might just add a new tab... we'll see.
Have a nice day
