The way we are - Tyler Ward 
Standard tuning: Capo 1 


VERSE 1:
Em                     G
I'm backseat to your freeway
            D                    
This could never be safe
          A
Cause, I might get lost in you
Em                       G
I'm just a little bit defeated
              D
I've got my reasons
      G
One being you're just passing through



Em          G            
You know I love you but I'm
D                A
Feeling afraid, you never say
Em            G              D
One thing to keep me holding on
     A
You push me away




CHORUS:
Em         G
Why do you lie beside me?
          D
When you never have time
            A
And you're fine without me?



Em                  G
And I, think it's pretty unlikely,
           D
That the words on your mind
       A
Could ever inspire me
    Em            C          G     D
To stay and love the way we are   
Em            C          G         D
To stay and love the way we are




VERSE 2:
Em                   G
Every time you are lonely
              D
Why am I the only one
A
You come running to
Em                     G
Got me saying that "I love you"
        D
When I know that the truth is
            A
You could trade me for something new



Em            G
You keep me hanging like you're
D             A
So unaware, you're never there
Em          G                   D
you should know better but you don't
                A
And it's never fair




CHORUS:
Em         G
Why do you lie beside me?
          D
When you never have time
            A
And you're fine without me?



Em                  G
And I, think it's pretty unlikely,
           D
That the words on your mind
       A
Could ever inspire me
    Em            C          G     D
To stay and love the way we are   
Em            C          G         D
To stay and love the way we are





BRIDGE:
G         D
Somebody wake
           C
Somebody shake me from
     D              G
The hold she has on me
         D
I'm so afraid
            C
I wanna be saved but what
        D              G
if she won't let go of me
D              G
if she won't let go of me


CHORUS:
Em         G
Why do you lie beside me?
          D
When you never have time
            A
And you're fine without me?



Em                  G
And I, think it's pretty unlikely,
           D
That the words on your mind
       A
Could ever inspire me
    Em            C          G     D
To stay and love the way we are   
Em            C          G         D
To stay and love the way we are
Em            C          G         D
To stay and love the way we are

Seems pretty accurate. Only I think you should put the capo on 2 to make it sound like the original song. Oh, and the little bass line just before the chorus is something like this (relative to capo on 2):

E|----------
B|----------
G|----------
D|----------
A|--2/5-----
E|-------5--
