                Gorgeous song. I worked out the chords a few minutes ago and thought someone else 
might benefit from them somewhere down the line.

Written by Greg Wells, Adam Lambert, and Evan Bogart.
Produced by Greg Wells.


Intro: E..... (continuous)


E-------D------A----------E
Broken pieces, break into me
E----D---------A--------------E
So imperfectly what you should be

---------------------D
I don't want you to go
------------A-----------------------E
Don't wanna see you back out in the cold
---------------------------------------D
Air you're breathing out fades you to grey
----------A-----E
Don't run away, find me

Abm---------A----------------------E-------------------B
I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be
Abm---------A------------------E
It doesn't matter, go on and shatter
------------B----E
I'm all you need

--------D-------A---------E
Broken pieces, break into me
------D---------A---------E
So imperfectly what you should be
G--------------A--------------------------E------------Abm
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
G-------------A----------------------E
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

--------------------D
Let's enlighten the night
-------------A----------------E
We can fall away, slip out of sight
---------------------E
When you drop your guard
----------D------------A--------E-------
Melt into time, so intertwined, quiet

Abm---------A----------------------C#m-------------------B
I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be
Abm---------A------------------C#m
It doesn't matter, go on and shatter
------------B----E
I'm all you need

--------D-------A---------E
Broken pieces, break into me
------D---------A---------E
So imperfectly what you should be
G--------------A--------------------------E------------Abm
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
G-------------A----------------------E-------------------
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open


Instrumental interlude... eventually there's a key change: 


F#--------E-------B---------F#
Broken pieces, break into me
------E---------B---------F#
So imperfectly what you should be
A--------------B--------------------------F#------------Bbm
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
A-------------B----------------------F#
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open


Outro: Repeat the last two lines without little or no accompaniment. 


You kinda just have to work out a nice picking pattern for yourself; whatever 
works best! I play something like this:

E

--------0-----------------|
----0------0---0----------|
--1---1------1------------|
--------------------------|
--------------------------|
0-------------------------|

I transition to the next chord on the last note, generally.


Well, that's it!

Good luck and happy playing!
