Such an amazing song yet so simple! 

From the start to the bridge (4:01) it's Fmaj for 1 bar, Dmin for 1 bar and then Cmaj for 2 bars.
Then from there, the bridge is Fmaj, Dmin, Cmaj and Bbmaj for 1 bar each until 4:49 then it goes back to
the normal progression for four bars but on those last four, you use the bridge chords.
So rather than C for two bars before the end on F, it's C and Bb for one bar each.

This will all be in the chords below though; just giving you a basic outline before diving in. 
I'm playing this with no capo as it's fairly easy but if you aren't keen on the Dmin or the Bb
you can transpose this down by 5, put your capo on 5th and have a fun time playing in the basic
C fingering postions. That is probably best if your gonna solo this as an acoustic singer and
need to focus on scrunching your face up when you sing. :P

Edit: Lyrics have been fixed.

Edit #2: Upon closer inspection and a few more sit downs at the piano and the guitar there is most
certainly a C7 chord in there and have added it in. However, it also sounds fairly good without it so do 
what you are comfortable with.

You look pretty good down here

But you ain't really good...

[Pre-Chorus]

If we never learn we've been here before

running from the bullets
       C7
The bullets...

We gotta get away from here

F 
Just stop your crying
                      Dm

Breakin' through the atmosphere

Things look pretty good from here

F                             Dm
Remember everything will be alright

We could meet again somewhere.

Somewhere far away from here.
