[Verse 1]
A             C#m
When you’re a ghost, 
A             D
When you’re a ghost, 
F#m                     A              E
they’ll sit around and talk about how they liked you the most. 

A             C#m
When you’re a dream,
A              D
When you’re a dream,
F#m                     A              E
I’ll wake up to warm sun-rays that make me want to scream. 


[Chorus]
A                D                 F#m
I wanna let you know while you’re alive
                   D                  A
because everybody loves you when you die,
                 D                           E
but when it matters they’re not there, not there.


[Verse 2]
A             C#m
When love is dead, 
A             D
When love is dead, 
F#m              A             E
we’ll remember gentle nudges keeping us in bed,

A             C#m
or laughing at funerals,
A             D
queasy at carnivals, 
F#m             A                 E
listening to heartbeats slowing down as we keep growing old, yeah. 


[Chorus]
A                D                 F#m
I gotta let you know while you’re alive
                   D                 A
‘cause I’ll be a disaster when you die
                 D                           E
but when it matters they’re not there, not there.
A                D                 F#m
I gotta let you know while you’re alive
                   D                 A
‘cause I’ll be a disaster when you die
           D             E
chubby body, no hair, don’t care.


[Bridge]
      D            A                          C#m
It’s not like the love that they showed us on TV. 
         D            A           C#m      F#m
It’s a home that can burn. It’s a limb to freeze.
      D
It’s worry.
        Bm
Love is worry.
D C#m F#m A
Yeah.

Great work! To match the recorded version just a little bit more, I recommend playing Dmaj7 in the verses instead of D and Adim (x012xx) instead of A over "talk" and "sun-rays", and so on.
