[Intro]
D           A
La da da da da da
Bm          F#m
La da da da da da
Bm        F#m       Bm        A
La da da, la da da, la da da, la da da
D           A
La da da da da da,
Bm          F#m
La da da da da da
G        D         A        D
La da da da da da, La da da da

[Verse 1]
(D)        A
I was born old
       Bm           F#m
I grew up but I got younger
       Bm       F#m
I was torn, and cold
        Bm                    A
Now I’m fine but there’s this hunger
      G               A
And a thirst for the days
       D           F#m
Before I went and razed it all
G   A   D
To the ground

[Verse 2]
Got a job, found God
I did everything they told me
Spoiled the child, spared the rod
And found someone new to hold me
Though the love’s not as real
As what I used to feel when it
All went wrong

[Chorus]
D           A
La da da da da da,
Bm          F#m
La da da da da da
G        D         A        D
La da da da da da, La da da da

[Verse 3]
She was young, not scared - she was everything I wanted
I was dumb, unprepared - had no idea that I was haunted
By the ghosts of a life the night I hid the knives
And it all went wrong

[Verse 4]
It’s an old wound, but it opened in a new way
In a rest room in a rest stop on the thruway
She calls up her parents
And admits with embarrassment
        Bm
She was wrong

[Bridge]
G                A
Speaking of your mother
Bm             A7
This is how it goes:
         G               A
When the world gets you down
     Bm
I suppose
Gm          A7             Bm
You can fly away somewhere else
G           A
Of your own volition
Bm          A7
Of your own accord
            G                A
When you’re sad, when you’re angry
            Bm
When you’re bored,
       Gm               A7           Bm
You’ve got to do what’s best for yourself
G        A           D            Bm
Ooo ooo ooooo ooo oo oo oo oo oo oo
G           A
La da da da dum

[Verse 5]
I awoke; you were gone
There was nothing left to hold onto
I was blind, I was wrong
But I could find you if I want to
So I fly to the coast where
The boys you love most
Sing into your eyes

[Verse 6]
I was lost, now I’m found
I can see, but miss the blindness
Here’s my cross; pound
It’s your mouth, your kiss, your kindness
My stigmata’s the regret for how
I could have let it all
Go so wrong

[Bridge 2]
          G           A
I’m going back to the place
            D             A
Where they laughed in my face
        G   A
When it all went
D   Bm
All went
G   A    Bm
All went wrong
       G   A
Yes it all went -
       D            Bm
Isn’t this what you wanted, darling?
G   A
All went...

[Chorus]

This is a great tab but I see a few wrong chords here and there.

In the chords themselves, F#m is written this way:
F#m: x44322
which is actually F# major, and doesn't include the root note (the F#), which is important, so it's actually:
F#m: 244222

-----

The intro is tabbed as if the first half is the same as the verses, which it's not. It actually goes like this:

[Intro]
D A
La da da da da da
Bm F#m
La da da da da da
G D G A
La da da, la da da, la da da, la da da
D A
La da da da da da,
Bm F#m
La da da da da da
G D A D
La da da, da da da, La da da da

-----

In each verse, there is an E chord played in the second last line, not an F#m as in this tab:

[Verse 1]
(D) A
I was born old
Bm F#m
I grew up but I got younger
Bm F#m
I was torn, and cold
Bm A
Now I’m fine but there’s this hunger
G A
And a thirst for the days
D E
Before I went and razed it all
G A D
To the ground

-----

In the bridge, there are a few wrong chords corrected below:

[Bridge]
G A
Speaking of your mother
D B7
This is how it goes:
Em A
When the world gets you down
Bm
I suppose
B G
You can fly away somewhere else
(G) A
Of your own volition
D B7
Of your own accord
Em A
When you’re sad, when you’re angry
Bm
When you’re bored,
B7 G
You’ve got to do what’s best for yourself
(G) A D B7
Ooo ooo ooooo ooo oo oo oo oo oo oo
G A
La da da da dum

Here's how the new chords are played:VerseE: 022100-----Bridge chordsNo GmB7: x24242Em: 022000

I was just playing through again and noticed that in Bridge 2, there is an E in the second line instead of the A that is written in the tab:

[Bridge 2]
G A
I?m going back to the place
D E
Where they laughed in my face
G A
When it all went
D Bm
All went
G A Bm
All went wrong
G A
Yes it all went -
D Bm
Isn?t this what you wanted, darling?
G A
All went...
