CAPO 5

VERSE (Verses use single strums, you can hit body of guitar for beat)

G
Know,
   Am              Em
My only goal is to see
         C           G
When I'm only fast asleep
         Am                    Em
It takes more than strength to find
     C
This piece of mind




PRE CHORUS

        D                         Em
So I'll hold, hold, hold, hold it close
            Am                  D
To my heart beating with every step

Hold, hold, hold it close




CHORUS

Em                C
        He sleeps alone,
            Am             D                Em
He needs no army where he's headed 'cause he knows
                  C
That they're just ghosts
               Am                D
And they can't hurt him if he can see them, oh
Em              C
      And I may go
          Am          D               Em
To places I have never been to just to find
            C             Am     D
The deepest desires in my mind




VERSE

G
We,
   Am                Em
We only know, what we see
             C             G
'Cause we're always fast asleep
         Am               Em
Is it so hard not to believe
           C
That we'll never know




PRE CHORUS

   D                         Em
Oh hold, hold, hold, hold me close
           Am                D
I've never been this far from home

Hold, hold, hold me close

CHORUS

Em                C
        He sleeps alone,
            Am             D                Em
He needs no army where he's headed ‘cause he knows
                  C
That they're just ghosts
               Am                D
And they can't hurt him if he can see them, oh
Em              C
      And I may go
          Am          D               Em
To places I have never been to just to find
            C             Am     D
The deepest desires in my mind




BRIDGE

Bm
    It's in my head
           Em
And I have said
                    D
That I must be like him now
C               G
     He sleeps alone,
C               G
     He sleeps alone
Bm
    And one last chance
        Em
To make sense
                   D
Of what has long escaped us
C             G
   He sleeps alone,
C           G
   I sleep alone



CHORUS (The first 2 lines use single strums)

Em                C
        He sleeps alone,
            Am             D                Em
He needs no army where he's headed 'cause he knows
                  C
That they're just ghosts
               Am                D
And they can't hurt him if he can see them, oh

Em             C
   And I don't know
          Am            D              Em
If in the morning I will be here and if so
          C
Let it be known
           Am
That I was worthy
      D
I was worthy

I was worthy

I was


The ohs at the end are different timings so listen to the song to get the timings 
but they all use the same chord pattern

Em C Am7 D


I end on the following chords :)

C G Em C


End on G

how on earth did you meet Alex Trimble?!!
Anyway my chords came out pretty much the same as yours, but I just watched a couple of the Sleep Alone acoustic videos, and while your bridge no doubt works, he plays something else. Some variation of Em and then B to replace your Bm, Em, and D. I can't quite make it out though, it's in here /watch?v=hMybMF-tZTI
Anyway, nice work. love playing this song.

@playyourlife I waited outside the venue for them before the gig where I live and met them before they went to do a signing :) He just told me the chorus chords so I could check I'd got most of them right!
Yeaah I can't play B because my hands are too small to do barre chords, if you do work it out fully just tell me them :)
Thanks so much!

That's really awesome. I'd love to even see them live, let alone meet them.
I have the tiniest hands ever and I can play B, you can do it! If you capo up a bit it makes it easier. Anyway I'll let you know if I figure the chords out.
