Intro: D-Am-C-Em- x2


Verse 1:
D            Am
Put me on an aeroplane
  C              Em
A million miles away
      D           Am
She's opened up a book of hate
    C                Em
And tore a brand new page
  D
Tonight I'll find 
  Am
a wishing well
  C              Em
Tomorrow's a new day
  D
Tonight I'll find a 
Am
wishing well before 
C        Em
it's too late


Chorus 1:
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way
          C
Why do my dreams
               Em
keep slipping away?
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way

Spent a whole
C                 Em
lifetime running away


Post Chorus: D-Am-C-Em-


Verse 2:
    D              Am
She questioned my ability
   C                Em
To learn from my mistakes
  D                 Am
I said she'd need a guillotine
   C            Em
To put me in my place
  D                   Am
Tonight I’ll write my eulogy
  C            Em
Before I fade away
  D
Tonight I'll write 
   Am              C   Em
my eulogy so don't be afraid


Chorus 2:
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way
          C
Why do my dreams
               Em
keep slipping away?
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way

Spent a whole
C                 Em
lifetime running away
    D
And every time I
Am
close my eyes I've 
C            Em
lost another day
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way
          C
Why do my dreams 
               Em
keep slipping away?


Bridge:
    Bb
The waves came 
         Dm
crashing down fast
              Bb
And when the storm 
              Dm
was over the sky turned black
          Bb
And now I pray for sunshine
  Dm
I pray for sunshine
 Bb                       A
I pray you'll help me to escape


Chorus 3:
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way
          C
Why do my dreams
               Em
keep slipping away?
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way

Spent a whole
C                 Em
lifetime running away
    D
And every time I
Am
close my eyes I've 
C            Em
lost another day
            D
Show me the way
            Am
Show me the way
          C
Why do my dreams 
               Em
keep slipping away?
D             Am
Every time we close our eyes
      C            Em
we've lost another day
D             Am
Every time we close our eyes
    C                   Em D(Hold)
our dreams will have to end

I believe it is a G chord instead of Em. What do you guys think

I think that the G chords should replace the Em chord every time it is written here.

Definitely no G.
I think it is neither Em nor G. It is 022030 ...which is basically an Em with a D added, called "E-minor (with) minor-seven".
You can play every Em chord in this one like that. To make it sound more like the song, strum the wound strings first and then add the G, B and e strings, which will bring in the added minor seven.
Ian uses "advanced" chords like this quite often. Trying to play songs which include harmonies like that with "standard" chords will always sound a little incorrect. So, you sing-along chord players, don't be afraid of going beyond the basic stuff and try to get the right chords by ear if something sounds incorrect. It's not hard, it's fun. :)
The rest of this tab seems to be correct, but the lyrics in the bridge are missing a few words.
