NOTE: For simplicity's sake, it seems as though this song is meant to be played with the 
E tuned to an F. I think this is done in the movie.

[Lyrics]

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
And moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
Well you have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

I paid the cost too late
Now you're gone

Man, I've been trying to find a good tab of this song forever! My search has finally ended! Thank you so much! Do you know if there is a way to play it without tuning the Low E to an F?

Hey there just watching a few videos on this song and the string isnt tuned to an F he actually uses his thumb clapton style. it seems pretty natural as well if youve used this technique before. not a bad job tho!
