Keep this fingerpicking pattern for the whole song, but change it to these chords (thanks to Tsg9) :


[Verse]
C                                                 Em
   Your mouth is a revolver firing bullets in the sky.
C                                              Em
   Your love is like a soldier, loyal till you die.
F                                                      Am
   And I've been looking at the stars for a long, long time.
                                      C
   I've been putting out fires all my life.
                                                       G
   Everybody wants a flame, but they don't want to get burnt.
                          C
   And today is our turn.


[Chorus]
C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.


[Verse]
C                                                  Em
   This world is getting colder. Strangers passing by.
C                                                        Em
   No one offers you a shoulder. No one looks you in the eye.
F                                                Am
   But I've been looking at you for a long, long time.
                                                    C
   Just trying to break through, trying to make you mine.
                                                   G
   Everybody wants a flame, they don't want to get burnt
                           C
   Well today is our turn.


[Chorus]
C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.


[Bridge]
G                   F
   Hmm, our bonfire hearts
               Am
   our bonfire hearts
                   C
   Uh, our bonfire hearts
                 G
   You light the spark


[Chorus]
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.


C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.
               C
   our bonfire hearts


C                          Am                       F
   Days like these lead to, nights like this lead to love like ours,
                 Am                  G
   You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
C                          Am
   People like us, we don't need that much.
            F                           Am                   G
   Just someone that starts, starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.

Hey, brilliant job! Just a quick question, ideally should you pick the whole song or strum certain parts? Also, (sorry I'm a bit of a newbie :P) how fast or at what timing are you to pick the intro and verse? Thanks heaps by the way, your tab is practically perfect, well done! :D

You were missing the bass note there in the middle that gives the picking pattern some structure.
