I think this is right now - it sounds just about the same as the chords in 
the recording, and although there are some chords that may sound better in 
some parts of the song (which you can see somewhere in the comments of the 
Sylvia Version 1 chords), but I decided to stick with the actual chords from 
the recording.

Enjoy!

                 Em                                         
Let me take your temperature, you can throw the thermometer 
   G                       A
right back at me, if that's what you want to do, okay?

But you swing on little knives. They're only sharp on one side.

Can't you see I'm scared to speak, and I hate my voice 'cause it only makes you angry.
D                                Bm
Sylvia, I only talk when you are sleeping.
                       Em                                 G                            A
That's when I tell you everything, and I imagine that somehow you're going to hear me..."

Yeah, I think the chords in the first half of the chorus should be the same as the second half, like this:


Em G A
Go back to screaming and cursing, remind me again how everyone betrayed you.
