Not entirely sure about the tab for this one. Suggestions/corrections are reall welcome. 
you don't like the Bb chord (I don't) it can be played in G with a capo on the 5th fret.

Intro:

-------0-3---0-------0-3---0-------1-3---1-------1-3-----------0-3---0--|
-----1-----1-------1-----1-------3-----3-------3-----3-------1-----1----|
----0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0---2-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2-2---0-0-0-0-0-0-|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-0h3-----------0h2---------------------------------------0h3------------|
-----------------------------3p1------------3p1-------------------------|

This is also the basic verse pattern. So, the chords then.

[C]How long since I've spent a [Cmaj7]whole night in a twin bed with a [F]stranger
His warm arms all [C]around me?
[C]How long since I've gazed into [Cmaj7]dark eyes that melted my [F]soul down
To a place where it [C]longs to be?
[Em]All of your history has little to do with your [F]face
You're [Bb]mainly a mystery with violins filling in [F]space[C]

There is a little bass run after each verse, moving from [C]-[G] in something like
then back for the start of the next verse. Some verses open with a little bass run as well,
a-b-c. Finally, a much more important one goes with the last move from [F] to [C]
by humming or singing. It's f-a-bb-c. Rest of the verses (the last has only the first
twice):

You stood in the nude by the mirror and picked out a rose
From the bouquet in our hotel
And lay down beside me again and I watched the rose
On the pillow where it fell
I sank and I slept in a twilight with only one care
To know that when day broke and I woke that you'd still be there

The hours for once they passed slowly, unendingly by
Like a sweet breeze on a field
Your gentleness came down upon me and I guess I thanked you
When you caused me to yield
We spoke not a sentence and took not a footstep beyond
Our two days together which seemingly soon would be gone

Don't tell me of love everlasting and other sad dreams
I don't want to hear
Just tell me of passionate strangers who rescue each other
From a lifetime of cares
Because if love means forever, expecting nothing returned
Then I hope I'll be given another whole lifetime to learn

Because you gave to me oh so many things it makes me wonder
How they could belong to me
And I gave you only my dark eyes that melted your soul down
To a place where it longs to be

I tabbed this myself some time ago, but it isn't quite right. The treble melody should be played on the upper string and go for C 0 - 3 - 0 and for F 1 - 3 - 1. The repeating note can then be raised a string. If you don't want to play the Bb-chord, you can play it in G with a capo on the fifth fret.
