New Romantic Chords

First tab I've submitted, I've translated the 'picky' tab into chord as I prefer 
the flow and softer sound. Enjoy!

Basic chord structure is:
C, Am, Bm, G
A, D, G, G

Strum each chord for 4 counts.

C                                  Am
I know I said I loved you but I'm thinking I was wrong,
Bm                              G
I'm the first to admit that I'm still pretty young,
      Am                             D                  G-
and I never meant to hurt you when I wrote you ten love songs.
C                                           Am
but a guy that I could never get 'cause his girlfriend was pretty fit
    Bm                              G
and everyone who knew her loved her so.
      Am                            D
and I made you leave her for me and now I'm feeling pretty mean,
G                                   G                                C, Am, Bm, G
but my mind has fucked me over more times than any man could ever know.

Am                      D
Maybe I should give up, give in,
give up trying to be thin,
C                        Am  
give up and turn into my mother,
Bm          G
god knows I love her.

Am             D               G
and I'm sorry to which ever man should meet my sorry state,
         C               Am                 Bm, G
watch my steady lonesome gait and beware.
        Am                               D                     
I would never love a man 'cause love and pain go hand in hand
and I can't do it again.

C                              Am
So we stayed up late one night to try and get our problems right,
      Bm                              G
but I couldn't get into his head just what was going through my mind,
and I think he knew where I was going 
Cause he put Ryan Adams on 
And I think he thinks it makes me weak
But it only ever makes me strong.

C                                    Am
I've got this friend who sounds just like him,
    Bm                                  G                         Am    D, G-
now he's the man I'd leave you for, the man that I just adore like you.

C                          Am
The same man, he turns to me he said I've got to tell you how i feel,
    Bm                                G
if god could make the perfect girl for me it would be you
   Am                             D
and my god told me not tell about how much do you love your fella?"
I don't know more everyday
C           Am            Bm    G
not in this- new romantic way.

Am         D             G
I'll always be your first love, 
C            Am           Bm   G
You'll always be my first love.

Am             D               G
and I'm sorry to which ever man should meet my sorry state,
         C               Am                 Bm, G
watch my steady lonesome gait and beware.
       Am                              D                        G-
I will never love a man 'cause I could never hurt a man in this way.
       C                             Am                Bm           G
I will never love a man cause I could never hurt a man, not in this new romantic way.

End: Am, D, G, G.
