Eb / F-G-Bb-D infatua-
/ F-G-Bb-D tion
F / G-A-C-E phase
C /
F /
(repeat)

Chorus:

Bb / A-C-D-F
F / We're just
Bb / C-D-F-A ordi-
/ C-D-F-A nary
Eb / Bb-D-F-G people
Eb (2x) /

Eb / Bb-D-F-G know which
/ Bb-D-F-G way to

F / C-E-G-A
/ D-D
/ C-C
(repeat)

Verse 2:

Bb / Ab-Db-F Maybe we'll live and learn
Eb / G-Bb-Db-F Maybe we'll crash and burn
F / G-A-C-E Maybe you'll stay, maybe you'll
F / G-A-C-E leave, maybe you'll return
(repeat)

Go back to chorus chords and play it through. End on the Fmaj7 chord, F / G-A-C-E.

I suggest playing the chords without trying to match words to it first because it's kind a hard to match every word exactly with every chord.
