[Intro]

D  F#m  Bm  Am7  G  D  Em7


[Verse]

D         F#m
Beautiful lies
Bm       Am7            G
Cover my eyes with your hands
        D          Em7
Just pretend we’re better
D            F#m
Turn out the light
Bm                  Am7          G
There are no more surprises to come
         D      Em7
Let’s be numb together


[Pre-Chorus]

D   Em7             D   Em7 
The world’s so fast and nothing lasts
D     Em7  D  G     D  A
Let’s save it while we can


[Chorus]

                Bm    Cadd9
Cause I want to be forever
     Bm           Cadd9
Like smoke in the air
Bm           Cadd9         G
Float like a feather going nowhere
Bm           Cadd9
Lost in the silence
        Bm         Cadd9
I don’t need to be free
Bm           Cadd9
Kill me with kindness
    A
And please


[Verse]

        D         F#m
Tell me beautiful lies
Bm          Am7       G               D       Em7
I wish that I had the strength to let go, but I don’t
D        F#m
I’m paralyzed
Bm        Am7           G            D            Em7
I see the child in your eyes and I’m stuck in the headlights


[Pre-Chorus]

D Em7           D    Em7
I know too well that time will tell
D   Em7 D  G D  A
It’s easy to forget


[Chorus]

                D   G
Cause I want to be forever
     D            G
Like smoke in the air
D            Cadd9         G
Float like a feather going nowhere
Bm           Cadd9
Lost in the silence
        Bm         Cadd9
I don’t need to be free
Bm           Cadd9
Kill me with kindness
    A
And please


[Bridge]

               Em7          A
Oh, well, I’ve tried to be open
                    D                   G
But I’ve found it’s hard when you’re broken
           Em7            A         F#m  Bm
And in the heat of the moment, we’re free
   Cadd9   A     
So please, please
Cadd9     A
Please


[Verse]

D         F#m
Beautiful lies
Bm       Am7            G
Cover my eyes with your hands
        D          Em7
Just pretend we’re better
D            F#m
Turn out the light
Bm                  Am7          G
There are no more surprises to come
         D      Em7
Let’s be numb together

I think the third D at "It’s easy to forget" should be an E. Also, you might want to change the placement for the Bm at "There are no more surprises to come".

I think it's pretty accurate but I think instead of Em7 it's Em
