Keep this fingerpicking pattern for the whole song, but change it to these chords (thanks to Tsg9) :


  VERSE 1 :
C                                                 Em
   Your mouth is a revolver firing bullets in the sky.
C                                              Em
   Your love is like a soldier, loyal till you die.
F                                                      Am
   And I've been looking at the stars for a long, long time.
                                      C
   I've been putting out fires all my life.
                                                       G
   Everybody wants a flame, but they don't want to get burnt.
                          C
   And today is our turn.


   CHORUS :
C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.


   VERSE 2 :
C                                                  Em
   This world is getting colder. Strangers passing by.
C                                                        Em
   No one offers you a shoulder. No one looks you in the eye.
F                                                Am
   But I've been looking at you for a long, long time.
                                                    C
   Just trying to break through, trying to make you mine.
                                                   G
   Everybody wants a flame, they don't want to get burnt
                           C
   Well today is our turn.


   CHORUS :
C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.


   BRIDGE :
G                   F
   Hmm, our bonfire hearts
               Am
   our bonfire hearts
                   C
   Uh, our bonfire hearts
                 G
   You light the spark


   CHORUS :
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.


C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.
               C
   our bonfire hearts


C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.

Hey, brilliant job! Just a quick question, ideally should you pick the whole song or strum certain parts? Also, (sorry I'm a bit of a newbie :P) how fast or at what timing are you to pick the intro and verse? Thanks heaps by the way, your tab is practically perfect, well done! :D

If you want to play it like he does, then you pick the first verse and first chorus. You only start strumming on the 2nd verse. During the 2nd and 3rd chorus, I hear both picking and strumming on the record, so it's up to you, but I suggest you strum the chords. And you should strum during the bridge.
And about the timing of the picking, listen carefully to the intro, and you should be able to figure it out. The picking pattern is the same for the whole song.

Yeah, I thought it sounded quite nice with the strumming after the first chorus, thanks heaps! I've listened to the track a couple of times and I think I've almost got the timing for the picking, so I'll practice playing that throughout the other parts too. Thanks again, you've been a great help! :)
