Failing  Staind

This is my first time putting the chords on this site. I also have the electric version
on here, minus the lead. I'm almost 100% positive on the verses and chorus, but the
rest, not too sure.
Tuning: Standard (yes, these chords can be played in standard. If you've already detuned
a half step, just put a capo on the first fret if you have one. Or you can just
transpose them up a fret.)
[D] [F#m] [D] [A]  
[D]Yeah[F#m], like the threat of the d[D]arkest clouds rolling in[A]
On a sunny day.
[D] Yeah[F#m], like a fi[E]eld that has no rain.[F#m]
[D] Yeah[F#m], like a dog[D] that wanders a[A]imless
With no name.
[D] Yeah[F#m], like a c[D]ut without the p[F#m]ain.
[D] (Ye[F#m]ah) You couldn't fe[E]el this!
[D] [F#m] You couldn't ta[E]ke the pain!
[D] [F#m] (Yeah) You couldn't live [E]this!
CHORUS (words in parentheses implied but not sung):
[D] [F#m]And I'm[E] just [F#m]trying to [D]get through to [A]you,
But [E]I am failing.
(You) [F#m]lie like I'm [D]not even [A]here.
My [E]heart is breaking.
(I'm) [F#m]trying to [D]see through your [A]stare.
It [E]looks right through me.
(I) [F#m]smile and pre[D]tend I'm not [A]there,
To keep from g[E]oing crazy.
F#m E (x2)
[D]Yeah[F#m], like the day that your gu[D]ardian angel
Dec[A]ided to fly away.
[D] Yeah[F#m], like a br[E]uise that doesn't f[F#m]ade.
[D]Yeah[F#m], like a memory that t[D]ortures your soul
Unt[A]il your dying day.
[D] Yeah[F#m], like a l[E]ife you couldn't s[F#m]ave.
F#m E (x2)
F#m E (x4)
[F#m] I try to[E] get through to [F#m]you.
I try to,[E] I try.
[F#m] I try to[E] get through to [F#m]you.
I try to...
N.C. F#m D A
And I'm still trying to get through to you.
But [E]I am failing.
F#m E (x4)
[F#m] I try to[E] get through to [F#m]you.
I try to.[E]..
[F#m] I try to[E] get through to [F#m]you.
I try to[E] get through.
F#m E (x2)
[F#m] I try to[E] get through to [F#m]you.
I try to.[E]..
