Before starting on tabs please read this first.
(If you are in a rush the tabs are on the bottom*)

Capo on whichever fret works for your voice.
-when you pick it's easier if you hold your fingers the way the chords are.

The pattern the chords are played in the song:
C, G, F, C, G   and repeated over and over

Practice singing and just playing chords (not picking!) to the song so you can 
understand the rythym
before attempting to pick.

Lyrics with the chord transitions


[Verses] (Use tabs!)
C
I am thinking it's a
G
sign that the freckles in our
F
eyes are mirror images and
C
when we kiss they're
G
perfectly aligned

C
though I have to specul...
G
-ate that God himself did
F
make us into corresponding
C
shapes like puzzle

G
pieces from the clay

(see the reocurring pattern yet? ...CGFCG!!!)

C
true, it may seem like a
G
stretch, but its thoughts like this that
F
catch my troubled head when you're a..
C
-way and I am
G
missing you to death

C
when you are out there on the
G
road for several weeks of
F
shows and when you scan the radi...
C
-o, I hope this
G
 song will guide you home

[CHORUS] (STRUM!!)
C
they will see us waving from such
G
 great heights, 'come do..
F
wn now,'
C
they'll say..
G
-ay

but

C
everything looks perfect from
G
far away, 'come do...
F
-wn now,' but
C
we'll stay..
G
-ay..

[(Back to verses) Let's see if you've got the transitions down. (I'm too lazy to do the rest)

I tried my best to leave this all on your
machine but the persistent beat it sounded
thin upon listening
_________________________________

that frankly will not fly. you will hear
the shrillest highs and lowest lows with
the windows down when this is guiding you home

________End of Lyrics portion. Now to the verse tabs!________

Use picking tabs for the verses and
 just strum the chords for the chorus.

Good stuff; I really like the format you used to show the changes with the vocals! The F chord works and sounds great, although I would suggest voicing it like this, which I think is how he does it in the song (I'm using the Postal Service EP version-- other recordings might be different):
e-------|
B---0---|
G---0---|
D---0---|
A---3---|
E---1---|

You can definitely hear that open B (rather than a C) on top of the chord. This is technically an F6/9#11, or I guess a G7add11/F. Basically, it sounds like a G major triad (2nd inversion) on top of an F power chord. Also, I think the original capo position is 6th fret, making the chords F#, C#, and B6/9#11. Sorry for all the theory; I'm just really into chord extensions these days.
