video of song performed live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5ZtIlOJSFs

Tuning: Capo on 4. STANDARD except for the g string is tuned DOWN,not up, down to an E.
When i refer to strings,I will still refer to the third string as the G string despite
it being tuned down to an E. There's a general rhythm of 1, 1-2, 1-2 to the song. I 
tried to space the notes accordingly to help you get the feel of the one-two pattern.

*Intro:* Em shape, B shape, then an open A (4th string,second fret)

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------0---------0h2p0------0----------------------------------|
E|------0--0------0---------0---------0--0-----------------------------------|
D|-----2--2------4--4------2--2--------2-------------------------------------|
A|----------------------0----------------------------------------------------|
E|--0---------2--------------------------------------------------------------| (x3)

After the third time he does this little scale. after the 0-2-0-2-0 he gets really quiet 
for the next 8 notes
then he finishes with the same pattern that he does right after the hammer-on/pulloff.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------0--------0--------0--------------------0---------------------------|
E|-----0--------0--------0-----0--0--0--0----0--0----------------------------|
D|----6--6-----4--4-----2--2----2--2--2--2----2------------------------------|
A|--4--------2--------0------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The verse is played the same as the intro. Notice the lyrics and measures add up.

*Verse:*
    You look so wonderful in your dress… I love your hair like that… The way it 
falls on the side of your neck…
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------0---------0h2p0------0----------------------------------|
E|------0--0------0---------0---------0--0-----------------------------------|
D|-----2--2------4--4------2--2--------2-------------------------------------|
A|----------------------0----------------------------------------------------|
E|--0---------2--------------------------------------------------------------| (x3)

    Down your shoulders and back…
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------0--------0--------0--------------------0---------------------------|
E|-----0--------0--------0-----0--0--0--0----0--0----------------------------|
D|----6--6-----4--4-----2--2----2--2--2--2----2------------------------------|
A|--4--------2--------0------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

    We are surrounded by all of these lies… and people who talk too much… you've got 
the kind of look in your
eyes as if…
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------0---------0h2p0------0----------------------------------|
E|------0--0------0---------0---------0--0-----------------------------------|
D|-----2--2------4--4------2--2--------2-------------------------------------|
A|----------------------0----------------------------------------------------|
E|--0---------2--------------------------------------------------------------| (x3)

    No one knows anything but us…
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------0--------0--------0--------------------0---------------------------|
E|-----0--------0--------0-----0--0--0--0----0--0----------------------------|
D|----6--6-----4--4-----2--2----2--2--2--2----2------------------------------|
A|--4--------2--------0------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

*Prechorus:* A - Em - B shape……… the last 8 notes are played really quietly.
    Should this be the last thing i see… i want you to know it's enough for me…
cause all that you are is all that i'll ever need…

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------0---------0-----------0---------0---------------------------------|
E|------0---------0-----------0---------0------------------------------------|
D|-----2--2------2--2--------0--0------2--2----------------------------------|

A|--0---------0---------2---------2---------2---------2--2--2--2-------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

*Chorus:* Same as the intro except he does this in the fourth measure instead of the scale.
    I'm so in love… so in love… so in love… so in love…

*Bridge:* B shape, A
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|    
Lu-mi-ere, da-rling. Lu-mi-ere o-ver me.

A|--4---------4---------0---------0---------2---------2---------0---------0---------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|  then…

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------0---------0---------0---------0---------0---------0---------0---------0--|
E|------0---------0---------0---------0---------0---------0---------0---------0-----|
D|-----6--6------6--6------2--2------2--2------4--4------4--4------4--4------4--4---|
