Tab based on the excellent work from Jesx666.
Is different from the other acoustic tab, more correct in my view.
Furthermore its based on the 3FM live version on youtube, available here:

He changes the chords around in the song, just try what sounds best for you.
In the verse he sometimes does a bass walkdown but without regular pattern throughout 
the song. Ah well my first tab, so enjoy this awesome song!

It is played with Capo on 5th.


Chords:

G   -  32xx33
G*  -  3xxxx3 especially at beginning of verse and bridge, try it out

G      Am7              Em7          Am7          G
No, my only goal is to see when I'm only fast asleep
          Am7                   Em7          C
It takes more than strength to find these peace of mind


        D                          Em7
So I'll hold, hold, hold, hold it close
            C                    Am7
To my heart beating with every step
                       D
Hold, hold, hold it close


Em7           C
  He sleeps alone,
            Am7               D               Em7
He needs no army where he's headed cause he knows
                    C
That they're just ghosts
               Am7                 D
And they can't hurt him if he can see them
Em7          C
  And I may go,
            Am7               D               Em7
To places I have never been to just to find
             C           Am7       D
The deepest desires in my mind


 G*       Am7               Em7           Am7           G
We, we only know, what we see cause we're always fast asleep
          Am7                   Em7          C
Cause it's so hard not to believe that we'll never know


    D                         Em7
Oh hold, hold, hold, hold me close
           C                   Am7
I've never been this far from home
                       D
Hold, hold, hold me close


Em7           C
  He sleeps alone,
            Am7               D               Em7
He needs no army where he's headed cause he knows
                    C
That they're just ghosts
               Am7                 D
And they can't hurt him if he can see them
Em7          C
  And I may go,
            Am7               D               Em7
To places I have never been to just to find
             C           Am7       D
The deepest desires in my mind


Em
It's in my head
           Bm7
And I have said

That I must be like him

C           G*
 He sleeps alone,
C           G*  (G**)
 He sleeps alone

Em
And one last chance
           Bm7
To make sense

Of what has long escaped us

C           G*
 He sleeps alone,
C           G*  (G**)
 I sleep alone


[In the next chorus the first four chords are strummed once, then continues the normal 
way in the second Em7]


Em7           C
  He sleeps alone,
             Am7               D               Em7
He needs no army where he's headed cause he knows
                    C
That they're just ghosts
               Am7                  D
And they can't hurt him if he can see them
Em7            C
  And I don't know
          Am7             D              Em7
If in the morning I will be here and if so
            C
Let it be known
            Am7
That I was worthy
       D             (Em)
I was worthy, I was worthy, I was...



[G* - Am7 - Em7 - C]   2x
Ooooh, oooh oooh!

End on G*

Two small errors that i missed;

The line:
- We, we only know, what we see cause we're always fast asleep
The G chord got put on the next line, its on asleep!

Bridge:
B-aug5 should be Em.
