Here's the basic chords used. I say basic cause well frankly it's kind of hard tabbing 
from the two fuzzy live vids, and cause howie likes to + and - alot to chords. (If that 
any sense; its 4 am here.)

Intro                Verse
C major -- 010230    C major -- 032010-|
E minor -- 011000    G major -- 320000-|
F Major -- xxx3210   A minor -- x12200-|
                     F major -- xx3210

Pre- Chorus          Chorus
G major -- 320000    C major -- 032010-|
E minor -- 011000    G major -- 320000-|
F major -- xxx3210   A minor -- x12200-|
                     F major -- xx3210

Bridge
D minor -- 000231
E minor -- 011000
F major -- xxx3210
G major -- 320000

The strumming is really really simple, pretty much it's all down strumming, just listen 
it, its idiot proof.

Here's the lyrics and when the chords should be played when singing (roughly)

------------------------------------------------
                     Verse
------------------------------------------------

       C            G
Is it dark where you are?
          Am                     F
Can you count the stars where you are?
        C              G
Do you feel where you are
     Am                F
A thousand miles from home
          C           G
Are you lost where you are?
          Am                   F
Can you count the cost of it so far?
          C              G
Did you steal where you are
      Am                F    G
A thousand nights alone

------------------------------------------------
                   Pre-Chorus
------------------------------------------------
                  Em          F  G
Maybe there's a point to this
                Em    F         C
Could it be something I have missed

------------------------------------------------
                     Chorus
------------------------------------------------

Here we are set into motion
G
We Steal a car, well crash in the ocean
Am                                   F
You and I are caught in the fading light
                 C    Em   F
On the longest night

------------------------------------------------
                     Verse #2
------------------------------------------------

        C           G
I was close to a fault line
         Am               F
Heaven knows you showed up in time
        C
Was it real
        G
Do you feel
            Am          F    G
Like youre ever comin down

------------------------------------------------
                    Pre-Chorus
------------------------------------------------
                 Em     F       G
Maybes there's another side to this
               Em     F        G
Could it be something I have missed

------------------------------------------------
                      Chorus
------------------------------------------------
C
Here we are set into motion
G
We Steal a car, well crash in the ocean
Am                                   F
You and I are caught in the fading light
                 Dm
On the longest night

------------------------------------------------
                      Bridge
------------------------------------------------
          Am
Sun drops
            C
Clock stops
            G                 Dm
Here with you on the 21st of June
        Am
Will I see you
C       G
If not now
              C
Then tell me when

------------------------------------------------
                    Chorus
------------------------------------------------

So here we are set into motion
G
Well steal a car, well crash in the ocean
Am                                 F
You and I were caught in a fading night

On the longest night

------------------------------------------------
                       Outro Ish
------------------------------------------------
C
All we are is falling together
G
Even now it seems like forever
Am                               F
Still alive caught in a fading light
C
On the longest night

Chords are right but a lot of the lyrics are incorrect. It's definitely C G Am F but listening to the song over and over, these are the only four chords played throughout the song. I didn't pick up any Em or other chords you have listed.

Yes, the above comment is correct.
There are traces of faint Em and F Chords in the song. But very faint backingly.

See my version of this tab.

Actually, this version isn't the one on the album. If you watch the live vids you'll see it's very accurate, except for the lyrics.
