[VERSE 1]
                         C#m       E    F#
When it doesn't rain it snores.
                         C#m             E           A
Yes the cookie crumbles but in who's hand?
                C#m       E              F#
All things said and all things done,
             E, E5, Esus4, E
Life is short…

[VERSE 2] (like verse 1)
Oh I am young but I have aged.
Waited long to seize the day
All things said and plenty done,
Life is short...

[BRIDGE]
F#m7      B7                 F#m7
Oh, Oh, Oh, Could this be,
F#m7      B7                 C#m7 B7         C#m7  B7     E, E5, Esus4, E
Oh, Oh, Oh, Could this be the day I've waited for?

[VERSE 3] (like verse 1)
Another door to peek in through.                                        
The floor is filthy,
But the couch is clean.
At the end of the day,
That's another day gone.
Life is short, oh, life is short.


[BRIDGE]
F#m7      B7                 F#m7
Oh, Oh, Oh, Could this be, 
F#m7      B7                 C#m7 B7         C#m7  B7     E, E5, Esus4, E
Oh, Oh, Oh, Could this be the day I've waited for?

Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, .... (same chords as verse 1)

[VERSE 4] (like verse 1)
Oh I am young but I have aged.
Waited long to seize the day.
All things said and plenty done,
Oh I am young but I have a past.
Traveled far to find the start.
Yes I am scared and I've been burnt.
But life is short.

[BRIDGE]
Oh, Oh, Oh, Could this be, 
Oh, Oh, Oh, Could this be the day I've waited for?

Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, .... (same chords as verse 1)

When it doesn't rain it "snows", but other than that thanks for a brilliant tab :)

I looked into this, and when I played this tab over the actual song, there were a few errors. So for all of the verses the chords are as follows:
C#m, F#
C#m, A
C#m, F#, then E and whole string that comes with it. I'm usually not great at writing tab, but I've listened to this song a lot of times so I figured I'd make the suggestion. Whether you take the advice or not is up to you :)
