i saw that there is no chords-only version of this song on UG, so here it is - just the 
chords with no bass line (which is pretty easy to figure out too)

for the acoustic version of this song, drop the tuning by a half step.

It was a [ Bm ] plane ride from LAX to [ E ] O'Hare,
and what happened next was a [ Bm ] series of unfortunate events.
[ E ] (Please stay tuned for what happened next...)
The [ Bm ] life I breathe for you gives to me [ E ] new wounds [ G ]
Ones to [ A ] patch and dress as [ Bm ] I reflect on [ E ] what else I could give you.

Maybe I should [ Bm ] blindly throw my [ A ] faith
into the [ E ] next thing that comes my [ G ] way
Standing at the [ Bm ]back door with the [ A ] life that she left [ E ] behind. [ E ]
Are we all the [ Bm ] same behind the [ A ] frame
Beneath the [ E ] glass and fake last [ G ] names?
I've been waiting [ E ] far too long to [ F#m ] feel the sun on my [ G ] ba[ A ]ck.

It was a [ Bm ] big bang
and a bright white light from [ E ] nowhere.
It turned my [ Bm ] coach class window to
A first class seat on the [ E ] evening news, on NBC.
The [ Bm ] life I gave for you is yours
So [ E ] keep it, you oughtta [ G ] keep it.
If I had [ A ] one last chance to [ Bm ] take it all back
You [ E ] know I'd take take take you.

Maybe I should [ Bm ] blindly throw my [ A ] faith
into the [ E ] next thing that comes my [ G ] way
Standing at the [ Bm ]back door with the [ A ] life that she left [ E ] behind. [ E ]
Are we all the [ Bm ] same behind the [ A ] frame
Beneath the [ E ] glass and fake last [ G ] names?
I've been waiting [ E ] far too long to [ F#m ] feel the sun on my [ G ] ba[ A ]ck.

"A[ D ]pologies are all we'll ever be," [ A ] she said.
Standing on the [ Bm ] stairs
Looking back, looking [ G ] hard at me.
"Well, [ D ] life is long for those who have to wait," [ A ] I said.
The choice I had to [ Bm ] make.
The choice I had to [ G ] make.
The choice I had to...


It was a [ Bm ] plane ride. (plane ride)
It was a [ E ] plane ride. (plane ride)
It was a [ Bm ] plane ride.
Just A [ E ] plane... [ G ]


Maybe I should [ Bm ] blindly throw my [ A ] faith
into the [ E ] next thing that comes my [ G ] way
Standing at the [ Bm ]back door with the [ A ] life that she left [ E ] behind. [ E ]
If we know the [ Bm ] way we're gonna [ A ] die
Through everything [ E ] else we will sur[ G ]vive
I've been waiting [ E ] far too long to [ F#m ] feel the sun on my [ G ] ba[ A ]ck.


But [ C ] one day,
I will stay.
