Shaun Morgan uses a Dsus2, then a Bminor, then two 5th-fret bar chords throughout the
I'm using A* because it's the closest sounding bar chord to what he plays. Everything else
100% accurate, including the timing of the chords with the lyrics.

Opening: Dsus2 (pick through the 3 bottom strings)

Verse 1:
          Dsus2       Bm                A*       A*
And my words will be here when I'm gone
             Dsus2        Bm                 A*       A*
'Cause I'm fading again against the wind
            Dsus2          Bm           A*       A*
And the words you left me linger on
               Dsus2         Bm            A*        A*
'Cause I'm failing again now never to change this

Chorus 1:
Dsus2         Bm              A*              A*
And I'm sympathetic, never letting on, I feel the way I do
Dsus2            Bm              A*              A*
As I'm falling apart again at the seems

Verse 2:
             Dsus2         Bm         A*            A*
And it seems I'm alone here hollow again
              Dsus2      Bm                A*           A*
'Cause I'm fading away against the wind
              Dsus2        Bm              A*            A*
And the scars I'm left with swallow again
              Dsus2        Bm               A*           A*
'Cause I'm failing again now never to change this

Repeat Chorus 1 Twice

BridAe:
Em              A                   D                Em*
 The same old feelin's are takin' over, and I can't seem to make 'em go away
Em           A                       D                 Em*
 And I can't take all the pressure sober, but I can't seem to make it go away
Em         A                 D                     Em*
 The same old feelin's are takin' over, and I can't seem to make 'em go away
Em          A                     D
 And I can't take all the pressure sober,
    D                      Dsus2
but I can't seem to make it go away
    D                      Dsus2
But I can't seem to make it go away

Repeat Chorus 1 Twice

Chorus 2:
   Dsus2        A             Bm            Bm
I'm fallin, I'm fallin, I'm fallin, I'm fallin
   Dsus2        Bm      A
I'm fallin, I'm fallin apart again as it seems

(Applause)

yeah I'm pretty sure that he plays it a key-down for real, try that and it should sound good. I know the REAL version in different, but this is the acoustic live

It's played the same as the original version only tuned 1/2 step down, although on the live acoustic version his guitar is tuned to Drop D & 1/2 step down. The bar chord used looks like A but the tuning makes it a Gb.
