My take on this wonderful song, un-capo'd and I think more accurate than the previous version.

             B*   B**

&& - Throw in a F#sus4 or even a 244302 (F#add4; use your thumb)

Abm  F#   B

E                                  B
don't you cherish me to sleep
E                       B
never keep your eyelids clipped
Abm                      F#
hold me for the pops and clicks
      E                     B
I was only for the father's crib

E  B*

Abm                F#    B
hair, old, long along
     E                                  B
your neck onto your shoulder blades
E                        B
always keep that message taped
Abm                          F#
cross your breasts you won't erase
      E                  B
I was only for your very space

Abm        F#  B
hip, under nothing
E                                   B
propped up by your other one, face 'way from the sun
E                   B
just have to keep a dialogue
Abm                   F#
teach our bodies: haunt the cause
      E                      B
I was only trying to spell a loss

Abm       F#  B
joy, it's all founded
E                               B
pincher with the skin inside
E                                    B
you pinned me with your black sphere eyes
Abm                            F#
you know that all the rope's untied
      E               B            B**
I was only for to die beside

C#m      Abm

so it's storming on the lake
little waves our bodies break

C#m        Abm

there's a fire going out,
but there's really nothing to the south

C#m        Abm

swollen orange and light let through
your one piece swimmer stuck to you


sold, I'm ever
E                         B
open ears and open eyes
E                         B
wake up to your starboard bride
        Abm                        F#
who goes in and then stays inside
       E                     B
oh the demons come, they can subside


Where the B** is played, the interesting thing here is that there are two
 guitars doing different things, the right one plays a Bsus4 and the left
 plays a normal B, which gives that weird sound. So I've compromised.
Also, I think the lyrics given on their website are a bit tricky, in that he's written 
"swollen orange", but clearly in the song it is "swollen ocean"
(makes more sense now, doesn't it?)

Good, but in the part starting with "so it's storming on the lake", it's B instead of F#.
