Ok, so I saw the other tabs for this song, and they were good, but not completely 
so I decided to add my first tab ever. This is how I play it, and it sounds better than some 
out there.
The song is pretty easy, there's 7 chords for the whole song but they're all basic. 
very simple, what's harder is memorizing the chord progressions. Good luck! Hope you like it!

Standard tuning & no capo

Am        x02210
F         133211
F/C       x33210
G         320033
C         x32010
Dm        xx0231


Intro: 

Am, F x2


[Verse]

          Am
Your fingertips across my skin
               F/C
The palm trees swaying in the wind
   Am              F/C
Images
            Am
You sang me Spanish lullabies
             F/C
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
       Am
Clever trick


        G                       C
Well, I never want to see you unhappy
 Dm                             G
I thought you'd want the same for me


[Chorus]

C
 Goodbye, my almost lover
G
 Goodbye, my hopeless dream
Dm
 I'm trying not to think about you
F
 Can't you just let me be?
C
 So long, my luckless romance
G
 My back is turned on you
Dm
 Should've known you'd bring me heartache
F                    C
 Almost lovers always do


[Verse]

F         Am
  We walked along a crowded street
            F
You took my hand and danced with me
   Am F
Images
             Am
And when you left, you kissed my lips
                      F
You told me you would never, never forget
         Am    F
These images, no


          G                       C
Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
  Dm                            G
I thought you'd want the same for me


[Chorus]

C
 Goodbye, my almost lover
G
 Goodbye, my hopeless dream
Dm
 I'm trying not to think about you
F
 Can't you just let me be?
C
 So long, my luckless romance
G
 My back is turned on you
Dm
 Should've known you'd bring me heartache
F                    C
 Almost lovers always do


[Verse]

G
Am                   G
 I cannot go to the ocean
                              Am
I cannot drive the streets at night
                           F
I cannot wake up in the morning
                  Em
Without you on my mind
                                G
Well so you're gone and I'm haunted
                       F -
And I bet you are just fine


Did I make it that
  Dm
Easy to walk right in and out
            G
Of my life?


[Chorus]

C
 Goodbye, my almost lover
G
 Goodbye, my hopeless dream
Dm
 I'm trying not to think about you
F
 Can't you just let me be?
C
 So long, my luckless romance
G
 My back is turned on you
Dm
 Should've known you'd bring me heartache
F                    C
 Almost lovers always do
