Okay, there's a lot of tabs on here which require a capo, so I thought I'd try my 
first guitar tab. It seems pretty accurate, sounds good,
and they're also the chords that Ellie uses when she plays Lights live.

Chords:
G#5         F#5      E       C#5

                   e---      
                   B---
                   G--2     G--6
D--6      D--4     D--2     D--6
A--6      A--4     A--1     A--4
E--4      E--2     E---     E--X


Intro: (count in barrs of 4, and then change. So G#5 1 2 3 4, change etc)

G#5  F#5   E   C#5 x2 

Verse:

   G#5         F#5         E            C#5
I had a way then losing it all on my own
      G#5         F#5                    E        C#5  
I had a heart then, but the Queen has been overthrown
     G#5               F#5          E            C#5         
And I'm not sleeping now, the dark is too hard to beat
    G#5              F#5        E               C#5
And I'm not keeping now, the strength I need to push me


Chorus:
             G#5                  F#5
You show the lights that stop me, turn to stone
     E                C#5
You shine it when I'm alone
         G#5              F#5
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
     E                    C#5
And dreaming when they're gone

               G#5               F#5
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
E                 C#5
Calling, calling, calling home
             G#5                 F#5
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
     E                 C#5
You shine them when I'm alone

(Home)


Verse 2:

G#5       F#5     E       C#5
Noises, I play within my head
       G#5        F#5               E            C#5
Touch my own skin, and hope that I'm still breathing
    G#5              F#5      E              C#5
And I think back to when, my brother and my sister slept
G#5            F#5          E         C#5
In an unlocked place, the only time I feel safe



Chorus:
             G#5                  F#5
You show the lights that stop me, turn to stone
     E                C#5
You shine it when I'm alone
         G#5              F#5
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
     E                    C#5
And dreaming when they're gone

               G#5               F#5
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
E                 C#5
Calling, calling, calling home
             G#5                 F#5
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
     E                 C#5
You shine them when I'm alone

(Home)


G#5             F#5
Lights, Lights, Lights, Lights
E               C#5
Lights, Lights, Lights, Lights



The rest of the song follows the same pattern. Get out there and download Lights, 
let's get it to number one for the amazing Goulding. :)

Thanks.
