3 Am

This is a fantastic song.  I believe he plays this song with an electric guitar but I
think it sounds better on an acoustic.  I saw this song transcribed differently.  The
chord progression the tabber used was D-D-C-A  But I think the song sounds much better
with the Bm chord.  Good luck.  Email me if you have any questions or complaints. 

Intro: D-Bm-C-A

(Verse 1)
D       Bm  C                     A
It's 3AM.      And I'm awake and my heart is still dreaming.

D       Bm  C                         A
It's 3AM.      And outside I hear the souls still screaming.

D             Bm  C                  A
It's been so long, you know since my head's been this clear.
D                            Bm      C                       
Just like a ship lost in the night.      I just don't know which way I
should steer.

Bm                       A        Bm                           A
But I'll keep chasing my dreams.     And only you can make them real.

Bm                          A
And I pour my heart out every night.

C                   A
But do you know the way that I feel?

(Verse 2)
D                 Bm         C                           A
Sometimes this is work.       And don't you know sometimes this is play.

D                             Bm   C                                    
Sometimes you are listening to me.   And sometimes you don't hear a damn
word that I say.

D                  Bm      C                A
Sometimes there's a girl.    Sometimes I go home alone.

D                               Bm     C                     A
And I guess it's no wonder right now.     That I do very well on my own.

(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat verse 1 slower and arpegiate the chords)

I do not think its D-Bm-C-A AT ALL, what you tabbed was just up 2 on the chords, yet its not that, it sounds a lot better and realistic playing something like this:
Capo2 -> Cadd9 - A7sus4 - F - G
Cadd9 (x32033)
A7sus4 (x02030) try it out, you'll notice that that sounds better
G (320033)
F (133211)
