 C#                                               A
  I wrote the words to this song on the back of a photograph
   E
 Behind your back it goes
 C#                            A            E
  A little something like this   is way too big to miss
  C#
 I got a letter in the mail
            A                 E                  C#
 The sender failed to let me know where it came from
                          A                  B
 Opened it up and sure enough there we were arm in arm again
 
 
 [Intro part one]
 
 C#                             A
  I know it's small but my last call's been called
 E              C#
 half an hour ago
                               A
 I know it's late but do you think you could at least
 E            C#
 fix it for me
                        A
 Then I'll go I'll go alone I swear
    E               C#
 I won't tell a soul
                                    A              B         E
 I'll drink this beer and write in fear of a song everybody hates
 
 
 
 CHORUS:
 
 E (continued)
 Armageddon, let the light in
 C#                     B                 A
  Before we say goodbye give us something to believe in
 E
 Armageddon, we're not begging
     C#
 For too much I don't think
        B               A
 Need a goodbye kiss before we sink
 
 
 [Intro parts one and two]
 
 
  C# (let ring)                                     A (let ring)

If you wanna rock this acoustically, you can capo the 4th fret. You play the same chords, just with easier fingerings.

Capo 4, finger as follows:

Intro:
C-A#-F
C-C/B-G

Verses:
A#-F-C
A#-F-G-C

Chorus:
C-A#-G-F

C# should definitely be C#m

Major/Minor - it's a song played with power chords, it doesn't really make much difference.
