And speaking of
                      D
Little Miss Catherine
            G           Em
I feel swell, oh well
                       C
Because losing you
                        D           G
Was something I always...

VERSE 1
         C
Did so well
   D                  G       Em
I guess I just can't tell anymore
         C                 D
And the feeling I get when I see your clothes
G                Em
Spread out on my floor
         C                D
Oh, I'm such a bore, I'm such a bore
           G        G/F# Em
I don't do anything anymore
        C                   D                        RIFF
I just count these ceiling tiles falling through my floor

CHORUS
G                        Em
Sorry, I really lost my head
     G                       Em
I'm sorry, I really lost my head

VERSE 2
                    C             D
But you know those words that you said
         G                Em
They get stuck here in my head
         C         D                  G          Em
And this feeling I dread, it makes me wish I was dead
        C                      D
Or just alone instead, I'll be alone instead
             G      G/F#  Em
I don't need anyone in my bed
            C       D                       RIFF
Just these ceiling tiles falling through my head

BRIDGE

G, Em, C, Am (8 down strokes each)

CHORUS
G                       Em
Sorry, I really lost my head
            G                      Em
Oh, I'm so sorry, I really lost my head
                     G
Oh, those words you said

Not bad. Chords are a bit off. Sure, they could possibly match the singing, but they aren't very true to the original song.

sounds pretty close to me, plus i've seen a video of the lead singer playing and still seems pretty close

I dunno about the intro chord, but right when he starts singing it's and Am not C (relative to capo) then D7 not D. Bar them to get the right sound. and the final chord isn't a G, it's a D13. which basically when playing a D7 (barred) you hold down the E string on the 7th fret (relative to capo.) the rest seems good.
