this song is relatively easy, but quite moving, especially on just an acoustic
guitar. I did this off of memory, but its pretty close to right...

I like to play my chord a little varied, so I'll just put the chord name, but
you'll see that I like to play open strings, whatever works for you.

Standard Tuning!!

Chords:
    D  Em*  G   C* Asus D*  A   B   Bb  F          
e---0---3---3---3---0---3---0---2---1---1-----------
b---3---3---3---3---2---3---2---4---3---1------------
g---2---0---0---0---2---0---2---4---3---2------------
d---0---2---0---2---0---0---2---4---3---3-----------
a---0---2---2---3---0---0---0---2---1---3-----------
E---0---0---3---0---0---2---0---2---1---1-----------



-D    Em*     C* G  C* G 
They reach beside
-D    Em*     C* G  C* G 
A leech to find
-A                 B     C* G  C* G
I dreamed of this so long
-A                 B     C*(hold)
This used to feel so strong

(chorus)
-D   Asus D    G
Now I wait
-                             Em*                 
Wish these thoughts would go away
-              D*  G
I hope I dream of you
-                        G    G 
Cause it's taking my life away
-D   Asus D      G
No I don't hate
-                             Em*   
But these thoughts won't go away
-              D*  G
I hope I dream of you
-             G           C
Cause it's taking my life away

 
Deep down it hides
Making life a grind
I dreamed of this so long
This used to feel so strong

Now I wait
Wish these thoughts would go away
I hope I dream of you
Cause it's taking my life away
No I don't hate
But these thoughts won't go away
I hope I dream of you
Cause it's taking my life away

Bridge: (play the barred chords for F,C, ang G for this part)

-Bb      F      C
Whoaaaa Whooaa OOOOoooohhhhh

last one go: C  Bb  G  F  G 

D    Em*     C* (hold c)
Deep down it hides

Now I wait
Wish these thoughts would go away
I hope I dream of you
Cause it's taking my life away
No I don't hate
But these thoughts won't go away
I hope I dream of you
Cause it's taking my life away

(ends on D...)

thats about it, just listen for those little parts...

well anyway, if you WERE to do an acoustic version, and this WAS it, the B in the prechorus sounds better if it was Em7 (your Em) the C is Cadd9, and I believe you mixed up Asus with A2

and try this:
D A Cadd9 D
And now i'll wait

A Cadd9 Em7
wish those thoughts would go away

Dsus4 Em7 G

Dsus4 D
cause its takin my life away

ps.
somehow i dont thing jeremy would be mad at you. he would probably be glad that his music interested someone enough that they started playing guitar and trying to learn new stuff. the other guys are just stiffs.
