This is my first time learning a song by ear so I'm not 100% sure of these chords.  
The timing is a little weird in this song so I tried to position the chords as 
accurately as possible.  
Enjoy!



C              Am		   
         And I had a dream 
C           G
         About my old school
C             Am                                     C  G
         And she was there all pink and gold and glittery 
                      C           Am
         I threw my arms around her legs 
                 C     G          C     Am
         Came to weeping, came to weeping
                                  C     Am
         Came to weeping, came to weeping


                   C         Am
         Then I heard your voice as clear as day,
C           G             C   Am
         And you told me I should concentrate,
  C            G
         It was all so strange,
C           Am
         And so surreal,
                   C         G        C   Am
         That a ghost should be so practical.


                C   G
         Only if for a night 
C             Am                      C           G
         And the only solution was to stand and fight,
                C      Am
         And my body was loosened,
                                 C    G
         I almost saved your life,
                 C         Am
         But you came over me like some holy life,
C        G                        C
         And I know the whole story, 
                Am
         You're the only light
                C   G
         Only if for a night 


C            Am                             C       G
         The grass was so green against my new clothes, 
                    C             Am              C       G
         And I did cartwheels in your honour, dancing on tiptoes
                 C          Am                C         G
         My own secret ceremonials before the service began,
                C      Am            C    G
         In the graveyard, doing handstands.


                    C         Am
         Then I heard your voice as clear as day,
C           G             C   Am
         And you told me I should concentrate,
  C            G
         It was all so strange,
C           Am
         And so surreal,

         That a ghost should be so practical.



         
         Only if for a night 
C             Am                      C           G
         And the only solution was to stand and fight,
                C      Am
         And my body was loosened,
                                 C    G
         I almost saved your life,
                 C         Am
         But you came over me like some holy life,

         And I know the whole story, 
                Am
         You're the only light
                C   G
         Only if for a night

                                        C   G
         My darling, my dear, my darling, 
                                             F
         Tell me what all this sighing's about,

         That a ghost should be so practical.

you somehow get the feeling but it's difficult since your tab is out of line, and sometimes it sounds like odd
