Alright. This is the way they play their song live when doing it acoustically. The song 
in DADGAD tuning. <----IMPORTANT.  I got this together from watching them play it and 
the rest out by ear.

Intro part 1:

"I got your picture..."

d I----0------0------0------0---------|I
a I----0------0------0------0---------|I
g I----11-----7------7------9---------|I
d I----9------5------0------7---------|I
a I----9------5------0------7---------|I
D I----9------5------0------7---------|I

Intro Part 2:

(No words)

d I----x------0------0------0------0---0------|I
a I----4/5-5--0------0------0------0---0------|I
g I----6/7-7--7------9------7------6---7------|I
d I----x------5------7------0------4---5------|I
a I----x------5------7------0------4---5------|I
D I----x------5------7------0------4---5------|I

tip: you can slide upwards or downwards chromatically for this chord.

(ex.)

d I------0--0--0--0--------|I
a I------0--0--0--0--------|I
g I------7--9--11-12-------|I
d I------0--0--0--0--------|I
a I------0--0--0--0--------|I
D I------0--0--0--0--------|I

anyway...

Verse:

"When the lights go off..."

d I------0------0------0------0-----|I
a I------0------0------0------0-----|I
g I------7------7------4------9-----|I
d I------0------5------2------7-----|I
a I------0------5------2------7-----|I
D I------0------5------2------7-----|I

d I------0------0------0------0-0----|I
a I------0------0------0------0-0----|I
g I------7------7------4------9-9----|I
d I------0------5------2------7-8----|I
a I------0------5------2------7-8----|I
D I------0------5------2------7-8----|I

Chorus:

"I got your picture..."

d I----0------0------0------0-----------|I
a I----0------0------0------0-----------|I
g I----11-----7------7------9-----------|I
d I----9------5------0------7-------|I--|  (x2)
a I----9------5------0------7-----------|I
D I----9------5------0------7-----------|I

Back to Intro part 2, come in with "Then in the field" early.

"Field..."

d I------0------0------0------0-----|I
a I------0------0------0------0-----|I
g I------7------7------4------9-----|I
d I------0------5------2------7-----|I
a I------0------5------2------7-----|I
D I------0------5------2------7-----|I

d I------0-------0------0------0-0----|I
a I------0---S---0------0------0-0----|I
g I------7---T---7------4------9-9----|I
d I------0---O---5------2------7-8----|I
a I------0---P---5------2------7-8----|I
D I------0-------5------2------7-8----|I

Chorus again.

Bridge:

The rhythm here can be kind of tricky, listen to the song and you'll get it.

d I------0------0-0-0------0-0--------|I
a I------0------0-0-0------0-0--------|I
g I------9------9-6-7------7-9--------|I
d I------0------7-4-5------5-7---|I---|   (x5)
a I------0------7-4-5------5-7--------|I
D I------0------7-4-5------5-7--------|I

last time through:

"Always wanting moreeeeee..."

d I------0------0-0-0--------|I
a I------0------0-0-0--------|I
g I------9------9-6-7--------|I
d I------0------7-4-5--------|I
a I------0------7-4-5--------|I
D I------0------7-4-5--------|I

Last time Chorus:

d I----0-------0------0------0-----------|I
a I----0---S---0------0------0-----------|I
g I----11--T---7------7------9-----------|I
d I----9---O---5------0------7-------|I--|  (x2)
a I----9---P---5------0------7-----------|I
D I----9-------5------0------7-----------|I

"I got your picture...."

(strum each once)

d I----0------0------0------0---------|I
a I----0------0------0------0---------|I
g I----11-----7------7------9---------|I
d I----9------5------0------7---------|I
a I----9------5------0------7---------|I
D I----9------5------0------7---------|I

Very nice, pretty much flawless, except for one part.
a I----4/5-5--
g I----6/7-7--
There, I think it should 4 and 6 on the fifth and third strings, instead of the second and third strings.

i really don't think it's dadgad. I keep listening to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfmjSB7IcPg and playing the song at the same time and it sounds a halfstep lower than dadgad.

It sounds much closer in drop D, halftone lowered. which would be

Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

When they play things live, they drop it a half step. It helps save Alex's voice. Thanks :)
