About this tab version
Great new song by Dodie and Thomas, in the original she plucks most of the chords instead of strumming, but either sounds fine.

[Intro] 

G


[Verse 1]

G                
  I missed you dearly.
B7
  Thought I was nearly
  C               D7
there forever, at last together.

G
  Is our time fleeting?
B7
  Is even meeting 
  C                      D7
a healthy idea, or am I getting too near?

[Chorus 1]

G            B7
Don't try to fight it
    C          A#dim7
I'm here for tonight.
             G
And I'll be waiting for you
  A#dim7   D7/A  G
until we meet again.

[Verse 2]

G
  I know it's scary,
B7
  but don't be wary
       C
if we don't have that long
           D7
let's not waste it feeling wrong.

G
This isn't the end
          B7
I'm your lifelong friend.
     C
Sure it's been a while,
            D7
but I'll be here when you smile.

[Chorus 2]

G               B7
So don't try to fight it,
    C          A#dim7
I'm here for tonight.
              G
And I'll be waiting for you
 A#dim7   D7/A  G  G7
until we meet again. Ohhh

[Bridge]

C Cm G G7
mmmmmm

C Cm D D7
mmmmmm

[Verse 3] 
(Strum once)

G    
  Would you mind staying?
B7 
  It's getting late, 
           C
but I will visit you soon
        D7
so just try to get through.

[Chorus 3] 
(Normal strumming)

    G             B7
And don't try to fight it
    C          A#dim7
I'm here for tonight.
              G
And I'll be waiting for you
  A#dim7   D7/A  Em   A
until we meet again.
          G
I'll be waiting for you
  A#dim7   D7/A  G
until we meet again.

Do you think it might be Eb7 before the D7 at the end of the chorus instead of C7? I've been struggling to figure out that chord but that's the closest I can find - it has that effect of moving in semitones down the fretboard

The chords for the chorus are :
G B
So dont try to fight it
C Edim
I'm here for tonight
G
And I'll be waiting for you
Bbdim D7 G
Until we meet again

For strummers the dim chords can be substituted by dim7
and the B can be left as B7 its easier.

A#dim6 isn't being recognised, its not the "common name"- the name used in UG is A#dim7-- containing the notes A# C# E and G. I disagree about the root but that's not really relevant as the inversions of A#dim7- are effectively C#dim7, Edim7 and Gdim7. Thanks for putting the tab up and taking the changes on board. The harmonies in the chorus are really very pretty.
