[INTRO] G

evan:
G   D
he said
C
there's nothing like your smile, sort of
  G           D          C
subtle, and perfect and real
 G   D
he said,
      C
you never knew how wonderful that 
  G           D           C
smile could make someone feel

    G   D
and he knew
    C
whenever you get bored you'd scribble 
     G            D             C
stars on the cuffs of your jeans
    G     D
and he noticed
           C
that you still fill out the quizzes that they
 G            D      C
put in those teen magazines

        Em     A7
but he kept it all
   D        (D7)
inside his head
         Em      A7    D
what he saw, he left unsaid
                C
and though he wanted to,
             G
he couldn't talk to you,
                     D
he couldn't find the way,
                     D7
but he would always say,

[Chorus]
            C    G
if i could tell her
             D       (D7)
tell her everything i see
             C   G
if i could tell her
               D
how she's everything to me,

      C       G       B7    Em
but we're a million worlds apart
    C                              D
and i don't know how i would even start,
             G     D    C
if i could tell her
             G     D    C
if i could tell her

G D C
G D C

 G   D
he  thought
C
you looked really pretty- eh erm,
C
it looked pretty COOL, when you put
  G          D             C
indigo streaks in your hair
    G      D
and he wondered
   C
how you learned to dance like all the 
 G           D         C
rest of the world isn't there

        Em     A7
but he kept it all
   D         (D7)
inside his head
         Em      A7     D
what he saw, he left unsaid

             C   G
if i could tell her
             D        (D7)
tell her everything i see
             C   G
if i could tell her
            D
how she's everything to me,
      C       G       B7     Em
but we're a million worlds apart
    C                              D
and i don't know how i would even start,
             G     D    C
if i could tell her

            Eb
if i could tell her
                Bb                         Eb
but what do you do, when there's this great divide?
                Bb           Eb
(zoey: he just seems so far away...)
                Bb                            F
and what do you do, when the distance is too wide?

(zoey: it's like i don't know anything)
     Bb
and how do you say,
   Eb
i love you
   Eb
i love you
   Eb
i love you
   Eb
i love you

      Eb       Bb     F     Gm
but we're a million worlds apart
     Eb              Bb            F
and i don't know how i would even start
            Bb    F  Gm  Eb
if i could tell her
       Bb   F   Eb
if i could

This tab works if you change it to the key of E by taking it down 3 steps.

Chorus is a little off. Try this out, I believe it's correct. (Of course as GrizzlyLemon pointed out you need to be in the key of E to play along with the song).

[Chorus]
C G
if i could tell her
Em D
tell her everything i see
C G
if i could tell her
Em D
how she's everything to me,

one other spot where the chords are slightly off:
Em A7
but he kept it all
C D G
inside his head
