Hey Folks,
I didn't find the chords for this great song from Franks brand new album, so I 
decided to try it out myself.
I wasn't able to figure out the whole song, so feel free to comment, help, edit or 
do it completely new ;)
Cheers from Germany,

*edit: Thanks for your comments, I added the missing parts*


I'm playing the Intro/Verse 1/Pre-Chorus/Verse 2 p.m.

Intro/Chorus

             Bm              G
Just give me one fine day of plain sailing weather
    D                       
And I can fuck up anything, anything.
         Bm                  G
It was a wonderful life when we were together,
    D                                       A
And now I've fucked up every little goddamn thing.


Verse 1

       Bm          G                         D     A
Amelie lied to me,   this was supposed to be easy.
            Bm                 G                          D      A
I found the one damn person to help me fall asleep in the night.
                  Bm      G                        D      A
But sleeping gets tiring,   and dark reminds me of dying,
       Bm                  G
And as long as this feeble heart is still beating,
         D                                                        A
You will find me rushing through every room, switching on all the lights.


Pre-Chorus

    F#                     Bm
The problem with falling in love in latenight bars
                 G
Is that there's always more nights, there's always more bars.
    F#                        Bm
The problem with showing your lover your scars
        G
Is that everybody's lover is covered in scars.


Chorus

             Bm              G
Just give me one fine day of plain sailing weather
    D                       
And I can fuck up anything, anything.
         Bm                  G
It was a wonderful life when we were together,
    D
And now I've fucked up every


Verse 2
           Bm        G            D          A
Things got fractious,  and I felt faithless,
        Bm                     G                          D      A
At that moment just before the dawn when everything falls apart.
                  Bm      G                   D          A
But baby I didn't mean it,  for things to get desperate.
     Bm                  G
I let slip my guard, let go of the rudder,
          D                          A
Now we're drifting in the current away from one another.


Chorus

             Bm              G
Just give me one fine day of plain sailing weather
    D                       
And I can fuck up anything, anything.
         Bm                  G
It was a wonderful life when we were together,
    D                  
And now I've fucked up every thing.
        Bm              G
Give me one fine day of plain sailing weather
    D                       
And I can fuck up anything, anything.
         Bm                  G
It was a wonderful life when we were together,
    D                                       A
And now I've fucked up every little goddamn thing.


Bridge
                     G
every little goddamn thing
                     A
every little goddamn thing
                     G       Bm (let ring)
every little goddamn thing 
                             D
I've been skirting round the rim of doing something
G                   F#m                       Bm
Brave, and not just standing, but jumping in,
                       D
Of making circles into squares, of laying down
    G                 F#m                   Bm
The bare facts like a burden I can't bear.
                          D
And I can almost find the words, but I can see the way you'd
G                      F#m            G               F#m
Fold your hands, speak my name like a curse upon your pretty lips,
    G                 F#m
the pressured white behind your fingertips.

D Bm A Gm D

Outro
             Bm                    A
And when you see me for all that I am
                    Gm                            D
I couldn't make mistakes to make a difference any more.
                 Bm                        A
I'd throw myself down on my knees, at your hands,
                   Gm                             D
And beg you for forgiveness for my fuckups and my faults.
                Bm                              A
And maybe you'd relent, release my hope for our forever,
                      Gm                                   D         Bm
Lift up your precious hands, and then bring yours and mine together,
                A               Gm                     D Bm
So just give me one fine day of plain sailing weather.
             A               Gm
Just give me one fine day of plain sailing weather.

Not sure up to 'fingertips' but I'm pretty sure the outro is just D, Bm, A, G repeated :) cheers for the tab

isobel.turner2 is almost right about the outro, it's G minor instead of G major.

An in the part before I would play Gmaj7 instead of G.

The whole song is easier if you transpose it down two half-tones and use a capo on the 2nd fret...
