This isn't 100% right, but this is how I like to play it.
Capo on 3


G                        D
Step one, you say, "We need to talk."
    Em                   D                   G
He walks, you say, "Sit down. It's just a talk."
G              D
He smiles politely back at you
Em            D                 G
You stare politely right on through
G                D
Some sort of window to your right
G            D                   Em
As he goes left and you stay right
                D                G
Between the lines of fear and blame
G              D
You begin to wonder why you came


C                D               G
Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
            Em           D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
C                        D              Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D       G
Had I known how to save a life


G                  D
Let him know that you know best
G                     D
'Cause after all you do know best
Em                    D
Try to slip past his defense
G                   D
Without granting innocence
Em             D           
Lay down a list of what is wrong
Em                  D
The things you've told him all along
Em           D
Pray to God, he hears you
G               D
And I pray to God, he hears you


C                D               G
Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
             Em           D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
C                        D              Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D       G
Had I known how to save a life


G                        D
As he begins to raise his voice
Em                   D                       Em
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
                  D
Drive until you lose the road
G                             D
Or break with the ones you've followed
Em          D 
He will do one of two things
Em               D
He will admit to everything
Em                     D
Or he'll say he's just not the same
      G               D
And you'll begin to wonder why you came


C                D               G
Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
             Em           D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
C                        D              Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D       
Had I known how to save a life


C                D               G
Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
             Em           D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
C                        D              Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D       G
