I like to play this with a capo because it sounds nicer,
but if you prefer to play without one, then:

[chords]
Am  = C#m  (x46654)
Am7 = C#m7 (x46454)
F   = A    (567755)
C   = E    (x79997)
G   = B    (799877)
Em  = G#m  (466444)
D   = F#m  (244222) or (x91010119)


Capo Fret 4 - All chords relative to capo

[intro]

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G (x2)

Standing at the punch table swallowing punch
can't  pay attention to the sound of anyone
a little more stupid, a little more scared
every minute more unprepared

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

I made a mistake in my life today
everything I love gets lost in drawers
I want to start over, I want to be winning
way out of sync from the beginning

C
I wanna hurry home to you
F		Am
put on a slow, dumb show for you
		G
and crack you up
	   C			     F
so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
		   Am
god I'm very, very frightening
G
I'll overdo it

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C G

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

Looking for somewhere to stand and stay
I leaned on the wall and the wall leaned away
Can I get a minute of not being nervous
and not thinking of my dick

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am F C F C G

My leg is sparkles, my leg is pins
I better get my shit together, better gather my shit in
You could drive a car through my head in five minutes
from one side of it to the other

C
I wanna hurry home to you
F		Am
put on a slow, dumb show for you
		G
and crack you up
	   C			     F
so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
		   Am
god I'm very, very frightening
G
I'll overdo it

C F Am G

Em G D C (Cmaj7)*

Em 		   G
You know I dreamed about you
D		     C
for twenty-nine years before I saw you
Em 		   G
You know I dreamed about you
D
I missed you for
C
for twenty-nine years

Em 		   G
You know I dreamed about you
D		     C
for twenty-nine years before I saw you
Em 		   G
You know I dreamed about you
D
I missed you for
C
for twenty-nine years

Em G D C
Em G D C

*(Right after the C in the last part, I like to play Cmaj7 (032000). I don't think they 
it that way, but it can sound nice. End the song on a C though.)
