This song has a capo on the third fret. In order to keep things easy, I will name the
as if the capo is the nut of the neck. ex)what is considered c minor will now be called 
minor.

There are a few things to remember for playing this song.

First)There is an alternating bass line between the root of a chord and the string above
ex)for a c chord alternate the lowest c note with a g.

Second)There is a walkdown at the end of the intro and chorus that starts with a c add
and walks the c note down to a b then the chord changes to an a minor. The catch is the
c add nine isn't played the usual way. You don't add your fourth finger to any string 
instead take off the finger you have on the d string. Making the walkdown look like this

e-0--0--0----------------------|
b-1--1--1----------------------|
g-0--0--2----------------------|
d-0--0--2----------------------|
a-3--2--0----------------------|

Amin Cadd9 (walkdown) Amin

Amin
She was a middle class girl

She was in over her head
Dmin
She thought she would
                Amin
Stand up in the deep end

He had a bullet proof smile

He had money to burn
Dmin
She thought she had the moon
Amin
In her pocket
                   Fmaj
But now she's dead
         Amin  Fmaj
She's so dead
                 Cadd9(walkdown) Amin
Forever dead and lovely now
Dmin Bmaj             Dmin
I've always been told to
         Bmaj
Remember this...
Amin       Fmaj           B7sus4
Don't let a fool kiss you
                Emaj
Never marry for love
                 Amin
He was hard to impress
                           Dmin
He knew everyone's secrets
                       Amin
He wore her on his arm

Just like jewelry

He never gave but he got
                       Dmin
He kept her on a leash

He's not the kind of wheel
    Amin
You fall asleep at
                   Fmaj
But now she's dead
        Amin Fmaj
Forever dead
       Amin      Cadd9(Walkdown) Amin
Forever dead and lovely now
Dmin       Bmaj          Dmin
Come closer, look deeper
              Bmaj
You've fallen fast
Amin                  Fmaj
Just like a plane on a
B7sus4 Emaj
Stormy sea
                       Amin
She made up someone to be
                                 Dmin
She made up somewhere to be from

This is one business in the
                   Amin
World where that's no

Problem at all

Everything that is left
                          Dmin
They will only plow under

Soon every one you know
        Amin
Will be gone
                   Fmaj
And now she's dead
        Amin
Forever dead
                 Cadd9(walkdown)
Forever dead and lovely now

Amin Dmin Amin Dmin

               Fmaj
Now she's dead
        Amin
Forever dead
                 Cadd9(walkdown)Amin
Forever dead and lovely now
Dmin Bmaj             Dmin
I've always been told to
         Bmaj
Remember this...
Dmin       Fmaj           B7sus4
Don't let a kiss fool you
                Emaj
Never marry for love
                   Amin
Everything has its price
                         Dmin
Everything has its place

What's more romantic
                      Amin
Then dying in the moonlight?

Now they're all watching the sea
                               Dmin
What's lost can never be broken

Her roots were sweet
                  Amin
But they were so shallow
                  Fmaj
And now she's dead
        Amin
Forever dead
                 Cadd9(walkdown) Amin
Forever dead and lovely now
                   Fmaj
And now she's dead
        Amin
Forever dead
                      Cadd9(Walkdown) Amin
And she's so dead and lovely now

I think that both of the Bmaj after the Dmin when he says "I've always been told to...etc" are actually Bbmaj

but otherwise it's a pretty damn good tab, thanks
