This is how I play this song on my acoustic guitar. I put a CAPO on the 4th fret. 
It suits my voice nicely, but don't be afraid to move it around to your liking :-)

F                             F             F
Sometimes in the morning i am petrified and can't move
F                F       G
Awake but cannot open my eyes
        F                             F                    F
And the weight is crushing down on my lungs i know i can't breath
    F                 F            G
And hope someone will help me this time
     F                          F          F
Your mother's still calling you insane and high
F             F              G
Swearing it's different this time
        F                          F           F
And you tell her to give in to the demons that possess her
         F        F           G
And that god ever blessed her insides
         F                          F         F
Then you hang up the phone and feel badly for upsetting things
    F               F            G
And crawl back into bed to dream of a time
          F              F            F                 F
When your heart was open wide and you loved things just because
         F            G
Like the sick and the dying

    F                              F               F
And sometimes when you're on you're really fucking on
         F                 F              G
And your friends they sing along and they love you
        F                            F                  F
But the lows are so extreme that the good seems fucking cheap
       F              F            G
And it teases you for weeks in its absense
But you'll fight and you'll make it through
       F              F
You'll fake it if you have to
           F           F           G
And you'll show up for work with a smile
And you'll be be better you'll be smarter
           F               F
More grown up and a better daughter
   F         F         G
Or son and a real good friend
And you'll be awake and you'll be alert
          F                  F
You'll be positive though it hurts
           F          F               G
And you'll laugh and embrace all your friends
And you'll be a real good listener
          F                F
You'll be honest you'll be brave
          F                  F
You'll be handsome you'll be beautiful
You'll be happy

F,F,F,F,F,G X2

Your ship may be coming in
       F                   F
You're weak but not giving in
       F             F            G 
To the cries and the wails of the valley below
Your ship may be coming in
       F                   F
You're weak but not giving in
           F                  F            G
And you'll fight it you'll go out fighting all of them
