C              Em      G
   My song is love
C             Em             G      F     
   Love to the loveless shown
C             Em      G
   And it goes up
             F       Em   G
   You don't have to be alone

C            Em       G 
   Your heavy heart
C             Em       G     F 
   Is made of stone
C             Em       G
   And it's so hard to see clearly
             F          Em      G  
   You don't have to be on your own
             F          Em      G      
   You don't have to be on your own

Dm                     C         G
   And I'm not gonna take it back
Dm                         C              G
   And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
Dm                             C       G
   You're the target that I'm aiming at
           F        C2     G

C             Em     G
   My song is love
C              Em        G      F
   Love to the loveless shown
C         Em       G
   I'm on fire for you, clearly
             F       Em   G
   You don't have to be alone
             F         Em      G
   You don't have to be on your own

Dm                     C         G
   And I'm not gonna take it back
Dm                           C             G
   Oh, I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
Dm                             C       G
   You're the target that I'm aiming at
             F    C2     G   
   But I'm nothing on my own
           F        C2      G
   Got to get that message home

(Dm, C, G) x2

Dm                     C        G
   And I'm not gonna stand and wait
Dm                               C         G
   I'm not gonna leave it until it's much too late  ohhh                         
Dm                          C          G
   On a platform, I'm gonna stand and sing
              F     C2     G
   That I'm nothing on my own
            F         C2           G  
   Oh And I love you, please come home

(Don't hit the bottom two strings for the Outro chords)

        F      C2      G2      Am
   My song is love, is love unknown
              F    C2        G2     C2 (ends on downstroke)
   And I've got to get that message home

those are the correct chords. But if your guitar is hard to tune or already gets off tune lots, i would recommend not to go with the tuning mentioned in that tab. And just play the chords on standard tuning.
