Intro:
G (x3) Cadd9 D

G
Christmas night, another fight
                 Cadd9 D
Tears we cried a flood
G
Got all kinds of poison in
             Cadd9 D
Poison in my blood

G
I took my feet

To Oxford Street
                  Cadd9 D
Trying to right a wrong
G
Just walk away 

Those windows say
                          Cadd9 D
But I can't believe she's gone

Cadd9
When you're still waiting for the snow to fall
                         D2           G
Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

G (x3) Cadd9 D

Em7
Up above candles on air flicker
        Cadd9            G
Oh they flicker and they float
G
But I'm up here holding on
             Dsus4          D
To all those chandeliers of hope

Em7
Like some drunken Elvis singing
Cadd9               G
I go singing out of tune
G
Saying how I always loved you darling
Dsus4        D
And I always will

Cadd9
Oh when you're still waiting for the snow to fall
                         D2           
Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all
G
Still waiting for the snow to fall
                            D2
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

G G/F# Cadd9 D Cadd9 (Break)

Time signature change

(Rallentando)   G
Those Christmas lights

Light up the street
               Cadd9        G
Down where the sea and city meet
              Cadd9           Em7
May all your troubles soon be gone
             G            Gsus4  G
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on

Cadd9 (3 strokes, rallentando) G
Those Christmas lights
Cadd9        G
Light up the street
              Cadd9             G
Maybe they'll bring her back to me
Cadd9                         G
Then all my troubles will be gone
             Dsus4               G
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on

(Instrumental break) G Cadd9 G (x2)

G       Cadd9           Em7
Woahohohohhhhhhhahhhhhohohhhh

G/F# G Gsus4 G 

G
Oh Christmas lights
Gsus4        G
Light up the street
             Cadd9
Light up the fireworks in me
             Em7
May all your troubles soon be gone

(Piano + voice only)
G                   Cadd9        G          
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on

Dsus4 Cadd9 G

Thanks :)
Yeah you could just play a normal D I suppose, but I thought that D variation, whatever it may be, captured the sound more accurately.
