Unfortunately, I can't help you with the chords, but the lyrics do not appear to be in the DT or the forum. Here they are for any who may be interested. Leon Redbone also recorded a fine rendition on his 'Up a Lazy River' album and he is often wrongly credited with its authorship.

BITTERSWEET WALTZ
(Craig Safan/Mark Mueller)

Some say that life's an illusion
Who knows what's false or what's true
The distant horizon
Can be quiet surprisin'
When finally the journey is through

With all of its glories,
And all of its faults,
It seems life is a bittersweet waltz

Some say the grass is much greener
Once you get over the fence
If that's your objective,
Beware of perspective,
Conclusions don't always make sense

With all of its glories
And all of its faults,
It seems life is a bittersweet waltz

You never know what you're holding
Til it starts slipping away
Your best protection
Is show some affection
To those who are with you today

With all of its glories,
And all of its faults,
It seems life is a bittersweet waltz

With all of its glories,
And all of its faults,
It seems life is a bittersweet waltz

On YouTube I found that Leon Redbone version, in Db major. The chords, in C major for simplicity:

C G7 C F
C G7 C G7
E7 Am E7 F
D D7 G G7
C C7 F Fm
C G7 C (G7 :|)

Any lyrics starting "Life is ..." claim a philosophical standard virtually impossible to accomplish. Given that, the lyricist did not do a bad job, but the composer, sorry, missed the point.
