I'm pretty sure these are the right chords.  But correct me otherwise...

Verse 1:
        E          Eb
I would love to be better
        E          Eb
I would love to be free
        E          Eb
I would love to be perfect
when you look at me

    E                Eb
But instead I'm still cryin'
    E                Eb
yes instead I'm still lyin'
    E                Eb
sad to say I'm still tryin'
not to be me

       E           B
When I see all the weakness
       E           B
that I turned into sickness
        E           Eb
I still think I can slide
just fine on the ice

         E          Eb
It's not easy to be honest
    E              Eb
sometimes I'm just astonished
   E            Eb        C#
how hard it can be to be true

E        B
Why do I lie?
      E           B
Is it just to get by
     E          B
If I give up my lines
will I die?

   E            B
If fortunes are favored
     E       B
then I am in labor
        E         B
and I'm tryin' so hard
to leave lyin' behind

Verse 2:
        E          Eb
I don't want to be hazy
        E              Eb
I don't think that I'm crazy
    E             Eb
but I've had some moments
where I am not sure

       E        Eb
and if you can forgive me
    E          Eb
for just being human
     E          Eb
then I will try harder
to keep my words pure

  E               B
I could be on the border
         E       B
It could be a disorder
    E          Eb
but honestly I think
that I can come clean

    E         Eb
and all of my stories
      E       Eb
might even be boring
   E          Eb
If I can tell you
what they all mean
