The House  Katie Melua

This is my first submission of guitar chords for any of the websites.
I like this song and couldn't find it's chords since the song was released which is
almost year and half now. So I decided to do it myself.
As I said, it's the first try so don't judge harshly and if any mistake is found I'd be
glad to be pointed to it.
No bar versions of chords sound better (at least to my ear, which may prove faulty)
except F in the end.
[Em] [C] [D]  
Who is i[Em]n that h[C]ouse?[D]
I opened [Em]the door t[C]o see[D]
Who is [Em]up the s[C]tairs?[D]
I?m walking up[Em] fool[C]ishly[D]
And at the end of the [G]hall was a d[Em]oor
And I got [Am]pulled in by a sound
But I [D]wish I?d never found
In the [C]privacy [D]of your own [Em]room
Where f[C]lowers in the [D]wallpaper [Em]bloom
Where [C]I just [D]don?t under[Am]stand[Em]
In the [C]privacy of your [G]room
Look [Em]away now, look [C]away now
At the [Am]moon
Is somebody watching me?
You really shouldn?t see
Why did you climb that last stair
You found me unaware
What I?m doing now it?s my own
And I don?t want it to be known
And it has to just remain
In the privacy of my own room
Where flowers in the wallpaper bloom
Where you just don?t understand
In the privacy of my room
Look away now, look away now
At the moon
[C]Puzzle me now with [G]mystery clothes
These [D]apples I love, these [F]apples I loath
And [G]always forgive the future to come
For [D]stealing the light from the sun
[Em] [C] [D]
