Verse:

C                                   Fmaj7
Hey there I said it I'm in love, with you.
C                                           Fmaj7
There's an ocean between us just like me, deep and Blue.
C                  Fmaj7
And I, at times have had nothing.
      C                    Fmaj7
But tonight, I want nothing but you.

Am
You're the only thing I want
Am
The only thing I want
Am                    D9 D7sus4 D9
The only thing on my mind
         Am G C
All the time

C                                               Fmaj7
Staying up 'till dawn won't take its toll, 'Till we get old.
C                                          Fmaj7
And drinking is just the way, we keep away the cold.
C                       Fmaj7
And you, you know what it means.
C                          Fmaj7
To be true, and searching like me.

Am
You're the only thing I need 
Am
The only thing I need

I'll give you it all 


Chorus:

Am
You're the only one I want 
Am
The only one I need 
Am                   D9 D7sus4 D9
The only one on my mind 
        Am G C
All the time

Pretty good tab man! Only two MINOR things I noticed. When you were describing the chords for the chorus at the top, you forgot to put the "3" on the high E string, but people should be able to hear it anyways. Also, it sounds like the first chord for the bridge is an "Am", not a "D9." Ben switches to the D9 though.

All in all good tab!
