   [Intro]
G   C (4x)

   [Verse 1]
G          Em
I woke you up
D               C
With poetry and stones
G                  Em
The ragged and the bones
D                 C
Strewn around the room


   [Verse 2]
G        Em
I recall
D         C
Another hazy may
Em                   G
Take a round in the ring
     D               C
Gone hungry for the win...

G   C (2x)


   [Chorus 1]
C                                    G
Here’s the part I just lose everything
C                                       Em   G   Em   C
And I cracked a spark just to hear you sing
Em   G   C
Sing...

G   C (4x)


   [Verse 3]
G         Em
I took it out
D                  C
The papers and the trash
G              Em
Old among the cans
D                     C
This golden love gone bad


   [Verse 4]
G         Em
Shined it up
D             C
Aiming at the Sun
       Em              G
Just a light year from us
      D                  C
Hop a cab ride and we’re off...

G   C (2x)


   [Chorus 2]
C                                G
And all the ravens came along to play
C                                   Em   G   Em   C
The simple notes you sang just went astray
Em   G   C
Astray...     


   [Bridge]
Am              Am               D7
Everything was up, it’s coming down
Am              Am               D7
Everything was up, it’s coming down
Cmaj7              Em           Cmaj7
Coming down,   coming,   coming down,   coming... 


   [Outro]
G   C  (2x)
G           C
Everything we ever wanted,
G   C
Is you

The second chord in the verses in Em, not C.

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. While the tab is in the right ball park, there some incorrect chords here and there. It'd be easier to learn the song by ear.

The intro is something more like this:

E------------------------------
B----0/1----1-1-0--------------
G----0/2----2-2-0--------------
D----0------0-0-0-2-0-2p0-2p0--
A------------------------------
E--3---------------------------
