Bastille - Pompeii

My first ever tab, not sure if 100% correct but sounds perfect to me, enjoy! :) 
Standard tuning aswell!! (No capo needed)

[Intro]
play intro chords once only 
D-A-F#m-E    X2

[Verse 1]
D          A       F#m           E
I was left to my own de--v-i-c-e-s
D         A            F#m          E
Many days fell away with nothing to show

[Pre-Chorus]
D                           A
And the walls kept tumbling down
                  F#m       E
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
D                          A
Great clouds roll over the hills
                     F#m       E
Bringing darkness from A-B-o-v-E

[Chorus]
                      D
But if you close your eyes,
        A
Does it almost feel like
F#m                E
Nothing changed at all?
                      D
And if you close your eyes,
        A
Does it almost feel like
F#m              E       
You've been here before?

D                    F#m      E
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
D                    F#m      E
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

[Verse 2]
D              A             F#m         E
We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
D            A          F#m             E
In your pose as the dust settles around us

[Pre-Chorus]
D                           A
And the walls kept tumbling down
                    F#m     E
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
D                          A
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       F#m     E
Bringing darkness from A-B-o-v-E

[Chorus]
                      D
But if you close your eyes,
        A
Does it almost feel like
F#m                E
Nothing changed at all?
                      D
And if you close your eyes,
        A
Does it almost feel like
F#m              E       
You've been here before?

D                    F#m      E
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
D                    F#m      E
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

[Instrumental]
D-A-F#m-E (x2)

[Bridge]
D              F#m
Oh where do we begin?
A                 E
The rubble or our sins?
D              F#m
Oh where do we begin?
A                 E
The rubble or our sins?

[Pre-Chorus]
D                           A
And the walls kept tumbling down
                    F#m     E
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
D                          A
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       F#m     E
Bringing darkness from A-B-o-v-E

[Chorus]
                     D
But if you close your eyes,
        A
Does it almost feel like
F#m                E
Nothing changed at all?
                      D
And if you close your eyes,
        A
Does it almost feel like
F#m              E       
You've been here before?

D                    F#m      E
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
D                    F#m      E
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

                      D
But if you close your eyes,
        A
Does it almost feel like
F#m                E
Nothing changed at all?

[Outro]
D-A-F#m-E X2

Oops...apologies, I'm sure it's mistake but I NOTICED you have F# Major instead. Just change it to F# minor and this TAB IS PERFECT....
