I wrote this tab before the song came out publicly so the chords/lyrics might be 
slightly different than what is out now.  For my ear the other chords/tabs listed 
do not sound right so I figured I'd share these incase others relate.  Hopefully 
you like it.  Comments can be sent to my email listed above.

[Verse 1]

                 G    D
When I look into your eyes
                       G     D
It’s like watching the night sky
                G  D
Or a beautiful sunrise
                          Asus2 - A
Well there’s so much they hold
                   G   D
And just like them old stars
                  G       D
I see that you’ve come so far
                  G   D
To be right where you are
                Asus2 - A
How old is your soul


[Pre-Chorus]

= = = “FINGER PICK” Freestyle pick.  If requested I’ll type the pattern I use

             G1    D
I won’t give up on us
            Bm        Asus2 - A
Even if the skies get rough
               G1     D
I’m giving you all my love
                  A (Hammer onto sus2 and back off)
I’m still looking up


[Pre-Chorus 2]

“FINGER PICK” Pattern above
                        G    D
And when you’re needing your space
           G   D
To do some navigating
             G         D
I’ll be here patiently waiting
                Asus2 - A
To see what you find


[Chorus]

= = = “STRUM”
               G          D
Cause even the stars they burn
          Bm          Asus2
Some even fall to the earth
            G      D
We’ve got a lot to learn
                A (Hammer onto sus2 and back off)
God knows we’re worth it
               G
No I won’t give up


[Bridge]

        E
I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
                                              Dadd9
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
   E
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts we got
             Dadd9
Yeah we got a lot at stake
           C
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we didn’t tend
                                               C#m9
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
                                                        C
We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in
                          C#m9
I had to learn what I got, and what I’m not
          DDsus4 - D
And who I am


[Chorus 2]

“FINGER PICK” Freestyle pick.  If requested I’ll type the pattern I use
             G     D
I won’t give up on us
            Bm        Asus2
Even if the skies get rough
               G      D
I’m giving you all my love
             Asus2AAsus2 - A
I’m still looking up


[Verse]

= = = “FINGER PICK” Pattern above
           G   D
So easy is our life
                          G      D
What’s mine is your’s and your’s mine
             G    D
Hardly do we ever fight
               Asus2 - A
We’d rather be kind

“LIGHT SINGLE DOWN STRUM FOR EACH CHORD”
             G     D
I won’t give up on us
            Bm        Asus2
Even if the sky’s get dark
                 G      D
I’m healing this broken heart


= = = “STRUM”
                     Asus2
And I know I’m worth it

             G     D
I won’t give up on us
              Bm        Asus2
God knows I’m tough, he knows
               G      D
We got a lot to learn
                Asus2
And we’re worth it

                  G     D
Know I won’t give up on us
              Bm        Asus2
God knows I’m tough, he knows
               G      D
We got a lot to learn
                Asus2
And we’re worth it

                  G  (walk bass down and go to D chord)
Know I won’t give up
                  G  (walk bass down and go to D chord)
Know I won’t give up
                  G  (walk bass down and go to D chord)
Know I won’t give up


= = = “LIGHT SINGLE DOWN STRUM FOR EACH CHORD”
             G     D
I won’t give up on us
            Bm        Asus2
Even if the skies get rough
               G      D
I’m giving you all my love
                  Asus2
I’m still looking up
