Been on a bit of a Tori streak :/ 
This one's fairly easy - sometimes different chord shapes are used to keep it easier.

[Verse]
   E           Emaj7    A/E          
Excuse me but can I be you for a while
   E          Emaj7      A/E        E
My dog won't bite if you sit real still
              Emaj7          A/E            E         Asus2
I got the anti-Christ in the kitchen yellin' at me again
            B
Yeah I can hear that
      E      Emaj7        A/E        E
Been saved again by the garbage truck
        Emaj7      A/E        
I got something to say you know
          E
But nothing comes
    Emaj7      A/E        E
Yes I know what you think of me
                Asus2
You never shut-up
           B
Yeah I can hear that

[Chorus]
    Aadd9            B
But what if I'm a mermaid
           Amaj9
In these jeans of his
         B7
With her name still on it
       Aadd9
Hey but I don't care
      Badd9
Cause sometimes
       Aadd9
I said sometime I hear my voice
B             C#m   D   B5
  And it's been   here
A5               N.C.
Silent All These Years

[Verse]
E       Emaj7
So you found a girl
            A/E         E
Who thinks really deep thougts
          Emaj7          A/E          E
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts
             Emaj7   A/E  E          Asus2
Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon
         B
How's that thought for you
    E        Emaj7       A/E  E
My scream got lost in a paper cup
                    Emaj7
You think there's a heaven
           A/E           E
Where some screams have gone
           Emaj7       A/E
I got 25 bucks and a cracker
        E             Asus2
Do you think it's enough
      B
To get us there

[Chorus]
    Aadd9            B
But what if I'm a mermaid
           Amaj9
In these jeans of his
         B7
With her name still on it
       Aadd9
Hey but I don't care
      Badd9
Cause sometimes
       Aadd9
I said sometime I hear my voice
B             C#m   D   B5
  And it's been   here
A5               
Silent All These 

[Bridge]
Emaj     B/E
Years go by
        Amaj/E     B/E
Will I still be waiting
G#m7 Aadd9            Bsus4 B
 For somebody else to un - derstand
Emaj      B/E
Years go by
      Aadd9/C#         B
If I'm stripped of my beauty
        Aadd9
And the orange clouds
        Bsus4 B
Raining  in   my head
Emaj     B
Years go by
        C#m        B
Will I choke on my tears
      Asus2           E/B  B
Till finally there is not - hing left
E        B/D#     A/C#
One more casualty
         B5         Asus2        Bsus4
You know we're too easily  easily  easilyy

[Verse]
       E       Emaj7     A/E   E
Well I love the way we communicate
              Emaj7    A/E       E
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
                    Emaj7    A/E       
Let's hear what you think of me now
         E        Asus2
But baby don't look up
    B
The sky is falling
         E       Emaj7     A/E   E
Your mother shows up in a nasty dress
                Emaj7    A/E       E
It's your turn now to stand where I stand
             Emaj7    A/E       
Everybody lookin' at you here
  E                Asus2
Take hold of my hand
     B
Yeah I can hear them

[Chorus]
    Aadd9            B
But what if I'm a mermaid
           Amaj9
In these jeans of his
         B7
With her name still on it
       Aadd9
Hey but I don't care
      Badd9
Cause sometimes
       Aadd9
I said sometime I hear my voice
B            Aadd9
  I hear my voice 
  I hear my voice 
B             C#m   D   B5
  And it's been   here
A5                Emaj5
Silent All These years
       G#m/D#
I've been 
C#m   D   B5
   here
A5                  E5    
   Silent All These Years
