[Verse]
             Em/A          Bm                C
It's not the long flowing dress that you're in
        Em/A        Bm           C
Or the light coming off of your skin
             Em/A                       G
The fragile heart you protected for so long
        Em/A                              G   Dsus4
Or the mercy in your sense of right and wrong

[Verse]
               Em/A             Bm          C
It's not your hands, searching slow in the dark
         Em/A          Bm           C
Or your nails leaving love's watermark
             Em/A                      G
It's not the way you talk me off the roof
      Em/A                               G  Dsus4
Your questions like directions to the truth

[Chorus]
      C                                G
It's knowing that this can't go on forever
   C                            G              Dsus4
Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone
  C                             Em/A
Maybe we'll get forty years together
  Dsus4               C                       Em/A  Dsus4
But one day I'll be gone or one day you'll be gone

[Verse]
             Em/A        Bm           C
If we were vampires and death was a joke
        Em/A          Bm          C
We'd go out on the sidewalk and smoke
     Em/A                               G
And laugh at all the lovers and their plans
   Em/A                                 G   Dsus4
I wouldn't feel the need to hold your hand

[Verse]
       Em/A        Bm        C
Maybe time running out is a gift
           Em/A         Bm           C
I'll work hard 'til the end of my shift
   Em/A                         G
To give you every second I can find
     Em/A                            G   Dsus4
 And hope it isn't me who’s left behind

[Chorus]
      C                                G
It's knowing that this can't go on forever
   C                            G              Dsus4
Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone
  C                             Em/A
Maybe we'll get forty years together
  Dsus4               C                       Em/A  Dsus4
But one day I'll be gone or one day you'll be gone

[Chorus]
      C                                G
It's knowing that this can't go on forever
   C                            G              Dsus4
Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone
  C                             Em/A
Maybe we'll get forty years together
  Dsus4               C                       Em/A  Dsus4
But one day I'll be gone or one day you'll be gone

The tuning in the tab is correct (and so are the chord shapes). It's a whole step down, and yes you can see him play it live using these chords.

I'm figuring out the fingerstyle right now, and the reason you might initially be unsure about this tuning is because the first note he starts on in the fingerstyle is on the 5th string/2nd fret (note is an A), which first makes you expect it's going to be an Aminor.

Just follow along to the chords in the tuning above... fiddle around with fingerstyle and you'll see it's right.
