play the 1st part of the verse like shown above, 
the second part is nearly the same, 
but there’s a little difference in Dsus2.

   E/A Asus2       E/A      Asus2       Dsus2
1.          So you wrote it down I’m supposed to care
                    E     Esus
   Even though it’s never there
                Dsus2
   Sorry if I’m not prepared   

   E/A Asus2      E/A     Asus2         Dsus2
2.  Is it hard to see the things you substitute
                     E           Esus
   For me and all my thoughts of you
                   Dsus2
   It’s eating me alive to leave you

Pre Chorus:

      Eadd9 
   e|-----------------|
   B|-----------------|
   G|-----1---2p1-----|
   D|---2---2-----2---|
   A|---------------0-|
   E|-2---------------|

standard chords are played here,
but Eadd9 must be played like above.

   A              E                         F#m
     Maybe it’s childish and maybe its wrong 
                       D                      A
   But so is your blank stare is lieu of this song
                E                      Eadd9 Dsus2
   Maybe it’s childish and maybe its wrong

Chorus:

all standard chords used here...

   A               E               F#m D
    Don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be wro-ong
   A                  E                 Dsus2
    You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this song
   A               E               F#m D
    Don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be wro-ong
   A                  E                 Dsus2
    You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this, in lieu of this 
   Asus2   Dsus2   E   D
   song

Verse 2:

      E/A   Asus2 E/A   Asus2 Dsus2 
   e|-0-----0-----0-----0-----0-|
   B|-0-----0-----0-----0-----3-|
   G|-1----h2-----1----h2-----2-|
   D|-2-----2-----2-----2-----0-|

   D|-2-----2-----0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---|
   A|-2-----2-------------------------------------|
   E|-0-----0-------------------------------------|

exactly the same as in part 2 of the 1st verse...

   E/A Asus2     E/A    Asus2       Dsus2
          I’m breathing in your skin tonight
               E       Esus
   Quiet is my loudest cry
                    Dsus2
   Wouldn’t want to wake the eyes that make me melt inside
   
   E/A Asus2          E/A    Asus2      Dsus2
          And if it’s healthier to leave you be
                                 E     Esus
   May your sickness come and set me free
                   Dsus2
   Kill me while I still believe that you were meant for me

Pre Chorus:
   
      A5    C#5   D5    E5

   G|-2-----6-----7-----9-|
   D|-2-----6-----7-----9-|
   A|-0-----4-----5-----7-|

      A5    C#5   D5    E5 
2. e|-0-----0-----0-----0-|

   G|-2-----6-----7-----9-|
   D|-2-----6-----7-----9-|
   A|-0-----4-----5-----7-|
   E|-x-----x-----x-----x-|

play part 1 4 times, 
then start singing while keeping on playing
up to ’reappear’. then play part 2.

   A5                  C#5                     D5
1.   I’m finding my own words, my own little stage
                  E5                      A5
   My own epic drama, my own scripted page
                          C#5                         D5
   I’ll send you the rough draft, I’ll seal it with tears
               E5                   
   Maybe you’ll read it and I’ll reappear

   A5                         C#5                        D5
2.   From the start it was shaky and the characters rash
                           E5                       A5
   A nice setting for heartache where emotions come last
                       C#5                       D5
   All I have deep inside to overcome this desire
                  E5                          D      Dm
   Are friendly intentions and fare-weathered smiles

Chorus:

      Dm    Ddim7
   e|-5-----4-|
   B|-6-----6-|
   G|-7-----4-|
   D|-7-----6-|
   A|-x-----x-|

standard chords again. 
play Dm and Ddim7 like shown above...

        A               E               F#m D  
   And I don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be wro-ong
   A                  E                 Dsus2
    You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this song
   A               E               F#m D
    Don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be wro-ong
   A                  E                 Dsus2                             A
    You’re leaving me, you’re leaving me in lieu of this, in lieu of this song
                   E           F#m  D
   Like Saturday night I’ll be gone
   A                E           F#m  D
    Like Saturday night I’ll be gone
   A                E           F#m  D
    Like Saturday night I’ll be gone
   A                E           Dm              Ddim7           A
    Like Saturday night I’ll be gone before you knew that I was there

That’s it!!! Any questions? I think it’s pretty correct.
I know there is a second guitar playing along in the background, 
but I haven’t figured out yet...
Great song!!! Hope you have some fun to play!!!
