I decided to make my own chord tab for this song because all the others posted 
here are not correct. For starters they showed a Bsus2 chord instead of the Bm chord.
Just play the arpeggio (and strumming) parts with each one and see which one fits the
music you hear on the recording. Additionally, the chorus and refrain progressions
were not correct. So here it goes...

Chords used in the song
Bm, G, A, Asus2, Em, F#

Intro
Bm G Asus2 x4 (arpeggio) [for the most part this is what is played, but there are 
slight variations throughout the song]

e|--------------------------------|     e|------------------------------|
B|-------3---------------------0--|     B|-------3-------------------0--|
G|-----4---4---4-------0-----2----|     G|-----4---4---0-----------2----|
D|---4-------4-------0-----2------|     D|---4-------4-------0---2------|
A|-2---------------2-----0--------|     A|-2---------------2---0--------|
E|---------------3----------------|     E|---------------3--------------|


Verse 1 (play chord arpeggios)
Bm                               G                Asus2

Bm                               G                Asus2
I left my body laying            somewhere in the sands of time 
Bm                               G                Asus2
I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon 
Bm                               G                Asus2

Bm                               G                Asus2
After all I knew it had to       be something  to do with you 
Bm                               G                Asus2
I really don't mind what         happens now and  then 
Bm                               G                Asus2
As long as  you'll  be  my       friend  at  the  end

If I go crazy then will       you still call me Superman 
Bm                            Em                F#         Bm
If I'm alive and well,   will you be there      holding my hand 
Bm                            G                 A          Bm
I'll keep you by my side with my           superhuman      might

You called me strong, you called me weak but your secrets I will keep 
Bm                           Em            F#
You took for granted all the times I never let you down 
Bm                              G                A                    Bm
You stumbled in and bumped your head, if not for me then you would be dead 
Bm                           Em            F#
I picked you up  and put you back on solid ground

Sorry folks. I was stupid for some reason. I was thinking the aforementioned Bm chord in all the other tabs was a Bsus2. I was thinking the same fingering pattern for F#m was being used a fourth higher and would make the chord a Bsus2. I was wrong, and my apologies for stating all the other versions showing Bm were wrong. I do stand by my assertation that the chorus and refrains were previously long. I can't correct the tab. Sigh...

The Tab should be
e|------------------------------|
B|-------3-------------------0--|
G|-----4---4---0-----------2----|
D|---4-------4-------0---2------|
A|-2---------------2---0--------|
E|---------------3--------------|

If you listen to the song this sounds much closer

The tab alternates between my submission and yours. Thanks for including this. I wish there was a way to update an already submitted and approved tab other than adding a comment.
