G/B C D


[Verse 1]

Em                     G/B     C
I had a dream about a burning house
           Em
You were stuck inside
                    C  D
I couldn't get you out
  Em                     D   G/B    C
I laid beside you and pulled you close
        G/B                   C   D
And the two of us went up in smoke


[Pre-Chorus]

C            Em                  G       C
Love isn't all that it seems I did you wrong
C                   Em              G          C
I'll stay here with you, until this dream is gone


[Chorus]

          G
I've been sleepwalking
      D
Been wandering all night
          Em                            
Trying to take what's lost and broke and
       G/B  C
Make it right
            G
I've been sleepwalking
D
Too close to the fire
             Em                             G/B   C
But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
        C   Em   D
In this burning house


[Verse 2]

Em                          G/B       C
See you at a party and you look the same
          Em
I could take you back
                    C    D
But people don't ever change
Em                     D   G/B   C
Wish that we could go back in time
       G/B                           C    D
And I'd be the one you thought you'd find


[Bridge]

     G/B                  C
The flames are getting bigger now
         C   Em    D
In this burning house
     G/B               C
I can hold on to you somehow
        C   Em     D
In this burning house
       G/B               C 
Oh when I don't want to wake up
        C   Em     D
In this burning house

In case it throws anyone off, in this tab during the chorus the relative D chord is played in its lowest position, and on his video he plays it from 5th fret/5th string. Same difference. Choose whichever works for you.

This is absolutely beautifully done, my friend. Thank you.
