It might be eassier to see where you have to play another chord this way:

Intro
|Ab Fm C |Ab Fm 

Verse 1 
C                                F/G
 You want to stay with me in the morning
F                        G
 You only hold me when I sleep,
Am                        C
 I was meant to tread the water
F                       G
 Now I've gotten in too deep,
Am                          C
 For every piece of me that wants you
F         D/F#         G	G/F
 Another piece backs away.

Chorus
	 Em  Am      Dm
'Cause you give me something
     F
That makes me scared, alright,
Em    Am       Dm
 This could be nothing
        G          G/F       Em 
But I'm willing to give it a try,
       Am      Dm
Please give me something
       G               Ab Fm   C
'Cause someday I might know my heart.

Verse 2
C                          F/G
 You already waited up for hours
F                                       G
 Just to spend a little time alone with me,
Am                                   C
 And I can say I've never bought you flowers
F                            G
 I can't work out what they mean,
Am                             C
 I never thought that I'd love someone,
F         D/F#           G     G/F
 That was someone else's dream.

Chorus
	 Em  Am      Dm
'Cause you give me something
     F
That makes me scared, alright,
Em    Am       Dm
 This could be nothing
        G          G/F       Em 
But I'm willing to give it a try,
       Am      Dm
Please give me something
       G               Eb       Dm      G               
'Cause someday I might call you from my heart,

Bridge
       Fsus4      F          C
But it might me a second too late,
        Eb                  Bb
And the words I could never say

Gonna come out anyway.

Instrumental
|Em Am |Dm F |Em Am |Dm G-G/F 

Chorus
	 Em  Am      Dm
'Cause you give me something
     F
That makes me scared, alright,
Em    Am       Dm
 This could be nothing
        G          G/F       Em 
But I'm willing to give it a try,
       Am      Dm		 G	G/F
Please give me something

Chorus
	 Em  Am      Dm
'Cause you give me something
     F
That makes me scared, alright,
Em    Am       Dm
 This could be nothing
        G          G/F       Em 
But I'm willing to give it a try,
       Am      Dm
Please give me something
       G               Ab Fm   C
'Cause someday I might know my heart.
Ab             Fm             C
Know my heart, know my heart, know my heart

Outro
|Ab Fm C |C   |Ab Fm C |C   |Ab Fm |C  

Chords:
                E A D G B E
                -----------
Ab              4 6 6 5 4 4
Fm              1 3 3 1 1 1
C               - 3 2 0 1 0
F/G             3 – 3 2 1 –
F               1 3 3 2 1 1
G               3 2 0 0 3 3
Am              - 0 2 2 1 0
D/F#            2 – 0 2 3 2
G/F             1 – 0 0 3 3
Em              0 2 2 0 0 0
Dm              - - 0 2 3 1
Eb              - 6 8 8 8 6
Dm              - 5 7 7 6 5
Fsus4           1 3 3 3 1 1
Bb              6 8 8 7 6 6

You can better play the Dm in the bridge like '-57765', it's eassier to switch from Eb to that Dm.

Think its beter to play either Ebsus2 or Ebm7 instead of Eb .And with the Fsus4 its really better playing F7sus4. But Im splitting hairs because its a great tab . Well done.
