Verse 1:

C C Em Em Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Burn it down till the embers smoke on the ground
C C Em Em Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
And start new when your heart is an empty room
Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
With walls of the deepest blue
C C Em Em Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Home's face: how it ages when you're away
C C Em Em Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Spring blooms and you find the love that's true
Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
But you don't know what now to do
Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Cause the chase is all you know
Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
And she stopped running months ago


Chorus:

C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
And all you see is where else you could be when you're at home
C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Out on the street are so many possibilities to not be alone


Verse 2:

C C Em Em Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
The flames and smoke climbed out of every window
C C Em Em Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
And disappeared with everything that you held dear
Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
And you shed not a single tear
Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
for the things that you didn't need
Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Cause you knew you were finally free


Chorus:

C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Cause all you see is where else you could be when you're at home
C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Out on the street are so many possibilities to not be alone

Chorus:

Chorus:

C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
And all you see is where else you could be when you're at home
C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7 C C Am Am Em Em Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Out on the street are so many possibilities to not be alone

-5 can be played very easily by basically barring the CEA strings with your forefinger the entire time and adding additional strings with your middle and ring finger. For Cmaj7 you just tilt your finger up so it's only on the A string. Very easy, sounds nice, though your fingers might cramp if you're a newbie (or maybe I've just been playing too long today ;D).

Also: in the chorus, there's an extraneous G in both lines. Should be just G-Cmaj7-G-Cmaj7... and then straight on to the Em, with no third G first.
