Jackson Browne: Late for the sky 

Intro:
|C     |G      |F     |C/E   |
|Dm    |Am  G  |F     |F     |
  

C                      G
The words had all been spoken
            F                        C/E
And somehow the feeling still wasn't right
Dm              Am     G              F     
And still we continued on through the night
C                            G
Tracing our steps from the beginning
           F                   C/E
Until they vanished into the air
Dm                       Am       G          F     C
Trying to understand how our live had led us there

F            Am 
Looking hard into your eyes 
          G          G/F          Em
There was nobody I'd ever known
        Dm       F/C   Am      F        G   Am  G/B
Such an empty surprise      to feel so alone

        C                   G
Now for me, some words come easy
                F                    C/E
But I know that they don't mean that much
Dm                Am              G                F
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
C                     G
You never knew what I loved in you
             F                 C/E
I don't know what you loved in me
Dm                       Am            G              F     C
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

F              Am             G        G/F       Em
Awake again, I can't pretend     and I know I’m alone
    Dm           F/C   Am              F             G   Am  G/B
And close to the end            of the feeling we've known

F                    C/E
How long have I been sleeping
Dm                    Am         G               F
How long have I been drifting alone through the night
F                    C/G
How long have I been dreaming I could make it right
                                   F
If I closed my eyes and tried with all my might
           Am
To be the one you need


Solo
|C      |G       |F      |C/E     |
|Dm     |Am  G   |F      |F       |
|C      |G       |F      |C/E     |
|Dm     |Am  G   |F C/E  Dm |C    |



F              Am             G       G/F        Em
Awake again, I can't pretend    and I know I am alone
    Dm           F/C   Am              F             G   Am  G/B
And close to the end            of the feeling we've known

F                    C/E
How long have I been sleeping
Dm                   Am         G               F
How long have I been drifting alone through the night
F                    C/G
How long have I been running for that morning flight
C/G                                   F             
Through the whispered promises in the changing light
       C                 G
Of the bed where we both lie
             C      Bb/C     
Late for the sky

C    Bb/C    rep & fade

Perfect job here. All the chords are right as far as I can tell (and I was playing along with the song while looking at your transcription here and it all sounded right), and they're all perfectly placed with the lyrics.
