(So this song has alot of different chords, some of which are unusual on guitar, 
but I've added chord diagrams for all of them below in the order they are played)



[Intro]: C D Em   x2

         C          D            Em
Staring out at the rain with a heavy heart
         C           D           Em
It's the end of the world in my mind
           C              D              Em
Then your voice pulls me back like a wake up call
Am                        F        G
I've been looking for the answer, somewhere
Am                          F
I couldn't see that it was right there
C                    Gsus4       G
But now I know what I didn't know 

           D  E       F#m
Because you live and breathe
                       D          E          F#m
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
             D    E   E/G# A         F#m7      E               Dsus2
Because you live girl, my world has twice as many stars in the sky

        C           D              Em
It's alright, I survived, I'm alive again
          C              D            Em
Cause of you, made it through every storm
         C               D              Em
What is life, what's the use if you're killing time
Am                     F       G
I'm so glad I found an angel, someone
Am                         F
Who was there when all my hopes fell
C                  Gsus4         G
I wanna fly, looking in your eyes

           D  E       F#m
Because you live and breathe
                       D          E          F#m
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
             D    E   E/G# A         F#m7      E               Dsus2
Because you live girl, my world has twice as many stars in the sky
           D  E F#m  D E F#m
Because you live, I live

Dm7         Em7                      Dm7         Em7
Because you live there's a reason why, I'll carry on when I lose the fight
Cm7        Bb                       Bb Ab  F7
I want to give what you've given me always

           F  G        Am
Because you live and breathe
                       F          G           Am
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
             F    G    G/B C         Am7       G               Fsus2
Because you live girl, my world has twice as many stars in the sky
           F  G        Am
Because you live and breathe
                       F          G           Am
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
             F    G    G/B C       Am7        G            Fsus2
Because you live girl, my world has everything I need to survive
           F  G Am   F G Am  F G Am
Because you live, I live, I live

Although I may not agree with all chords there but over 90% I agree. It's really fun to play this song. Must have taken a great deal of time to tab such a song with loads of chords. Thanks for the effort! :D
