I noticed the other versions were ok but not right, im sure these chords are
almost perfect if not perfect but I might have made a mistake.

This song is played with CAPO 1 and figure out the strumming for the song to get it right.

VERSE 1: 
C                                                                  Am
 I'm Thinking of the words to say, I'd like to think that this was fate.
 
                                                     C
Reference to a song you love, spell confusion with a "K"

                                                              Am
Like a star without its strings,I'm hanging here on these two wings.
 

For that smile and those eyes, (I'm falling)


CHORUS:
   F          C                 G                 Am 
If time could stop, how could I make this more po-etic?
G            F               C            G
When there's nothing more pa-thetic to be said
             Am           F
You bring me out, show me light,
    C          G               F        C       G
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too a-fraid to look in-side.
          Am                 F
You carry truth, and make me smile.
           C             G
If it were you and me to-night,
        F                  C                  G            F
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you, for you...



VERSE 2:
C                                                          Am
 If you ever had the chance, would you make your life seem right?

                                                                  C
Or would you only hold it back, the good times, the hard, and the bad.

                                                        Am
Whatever you say is alright, just as long as there's no doubt.

                                            
Could you look me in the eye (and say hopes died?)


CHORUS: 
   F          C                 G                 Am 
If time could stop, how could I make this more po-etic?
G            F               C            G
When there's nothing more pa-thetic to be said
             Am           F
You bring me out, show me light,
    C          G              F         C       G 
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too a-fraid to look in-side.
          Am                 F
You carry truth, and make me smile.
           C             G
If it were you and me to-night,
        F                  C                  G            
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you, for you


BRIDGE:

C*
  Our wish,
G* 
  Each time,
F            G
 Keeps me re-turning to you,
Am*       G*   F   
  Night af-ter night
C       G          F              G
 Lift me up as high as the clouds that won the sky,
Am   G       F  G   
 For you and I..I


ENDING CHORUS: 
             Am            F
You bring me out, show me light,
    C          G               F        C       G
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too a-fraid to look in-side.
          Am                 F
You carry truth, and make me smile.
           C             G
If it were you and me to-night,
        F                  C                  G            
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you

             Am            F
You bring me out, show me light,
    C          G               F        C       G
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too a-fraid to look in-side.
          Am                 F
You carry truth, and make me smile.
           C             G
If it were you and me to-night,
        F                  C                  G            
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you

F   C (ending chord)
For you...

In the two verses that you have here, you show it as a few measures on C then to Am. Though when listening to it sounds off. The C to Am transition may be correct but you have to use a mixture of adding an array of putting your pinky down on the 3rd fret on the B string as well as playing it open ( for the C of course) and do the same type of thing for the Am. Otherwise the Verses have to go back to the chopping block, other than that its a great tab.
