Intro
Cm  A B (pinky notes e to eb on third string)

Cm                    A
I can't even think of one good reason
B               A
Why I'm always thinkin about leavin
Cm                    A          B
It's not like everything's so horrible
Cm                   A
Been together for a few years now
B                   A
And you know all my ins and outs
Cm                 A          B
But everything's way to comfortable

F#
From the moment I wake
A
I plan my escape

B             E
I'm not scared
        A                                C#m           B
Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
A           E
And I swear
        A
That I'll find it someday
      C#m           B
Just wait and see
A            E
I don't care
         A
That you call me crazy
        C#m          B             E
I can't stay cause I need room to breathe
                            B
There's nothing left to say
                   A   B
Better sorry than safe

Cm                    A
Sometimes I wish you cheated on me
B                      A
Then leavin here would be so easy
Cm                    A          B
It's time to take a chance and give you up

F#
In the morning I wake
A
And make my escape

I'm not scared
        A                                C#m            B
Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
A           E
And I swear
        A
That I'll find it someday
      C#m           B
Just wait and see
A            E
I don't care
         A
That you call me crazy
        C#m          B             E
I can't stay cause I need room to breathe
                           B

-----
The Chords in the first part sound good as 6th string bar chords. Except the E which 
better as a 5th string A shapes chord.
When the key changes I use mostly 5th string A and Am shapes at the appropriate fret.
