Intro: F - G x4


Verse 1:

           Dm           Am
Don't look ahead, just run to me
           C                  G
Each step will find the next one recklessly
            Dm                 Am
We'll find ourselves on the safest ledge
          C                  G
Well, pardon me, I couldn't help myself
      F    G     F        G
Girl, fall into your life here
   F G      F        G
If only for a while, I'm here


Chorus 1:

Cadd11        C        Bb          Am
Could you be happy to fall like a stone
         F    G     Am   Em         F   Fm
If you'd land right here safe in my arms?
     Cadd11 C             Bb                Am
It's fine,  lock all your doors through the night
        F   G     Am    Em         F   Fm
Keep it all right here, safe in my arms
     F    G      F     G
It's fine,  it's fine


Then, F - G x2


Verse 2:

         Dm            Am          C            G
You felt alone before you ever really knew how alone you were
       Dm           Am
An empty house, a lonely room
      C                G
The TV talks the fear right out of you
                  F   G      F                 G
But you feel like someone's standing by, but you'll never know


Chorus 2:

Cadd11        C        Bb          Am
Could you be happy to fall like a stone
         F    G     Am   Em         F   Fm
If you'd land right here safe in my arms?
     Cadd11 C             Bb                Am
It's fine,  lock all your doors through the night
        F   G     Am    Em         F   Fm
Keep it all right here, safe in my arms
     (mute)
It's fine


Bridge:

    F   G     Am Em   Am                    C   G
The sun burns a  hole straight through your old flaws
       F    G      Am  Em  Am           Dm      G
If you look toward the sky even on your greyest night
F            G                   Am*          Am/G#
Could you be happy now, with the wind in your hair
         Am/G  Am/F#             F           G
And your eyes open wide and your feet going nowhere?


Chorus 3:

Cadd11        C        Bb          Am
Could you be happy to fall like a stone
         F    G     Am   Em         F   Fm
If you'd land right here safe in my arms?
     Cadd11 C             Bb                Am
It's fine,  lock all your doors through the night
        F   G     Am    Em         F   Fm
Keep it all right here, safe in my arms
     (mute)
It's fine


Please note:

I tabbed the chords on the bridge according to what the bass is playing. 
If you listen carefully you'll notice the chords are right, you just have to learn the timing.

The chords in the "with the wind in your hair..." part are also tricky. 
I've put the ones that, in my opinion, sound better.
