A Mirror is Harder to Hold by Jon Foreman
(From his Summer EP)
The other tab on here is in the key of E, and it's alright, but the tone isn't as 
nuanced as what Jon plays.  Here it is, as he plays it, in the key of C, Capo4
Capo 4

[Intro]
[Am Am/G F]
[C E7 F]
[C Gadd4/B A7]
[F G  C(add2 C)]

          C            Gadd4/B
You could stay a while longer
         Am               Am/G       F
We could stay up and talk about last summer
         C              Gadd4/B
We could go down to the water
          Am     Am/G  F
Watch the sunset going under
     Am             Am/G               F
It's not that I'm a stranger to lonely moments
     C      E7       F      G#
I've had my share of those
             C
Please don't go
             Em7/B    A7
Please don't leave me alone
F                   G         C(add2 -> C)
A mirror is so much harder to hold
        C                 Gadd4/B
I could try and point the finger
        Am             Am/G  F       (G->C walk)
But the glass points in my direction
            C              Gadd4/B
Sure you've got your sharp edges
       Am                Am/G  F
But my wounds are for my own reflection
(/E)       Am             Am/G               F
You've got nothing I could ever hold against you
         C              E7      F      G#
I've got fatal flaws to call my own
             C
Please don't go
             Em7/B    A7
Please don't leave me alone
F                   G         C(add2 -> C)
A mirror is so much harder to hold
  Dm                             G
I met a man who's looking for perfection
          Dm                             G
Said he'd never met a girl who's good enough
    E                E7              F
His eyes are getting old like they'd love to love again
       Am       Am/G  D/F#
Such a lonely man
       G        (G7)
Such a lonely man
      C           Gadd4/B
I see him in my reflection
       Am            Am/G     F   (G->C walk)
Taking steps towards me these days
     C                  Gadd4/B
So I hold you that much closer
    Am            Am/G        F
And pray we don't throw this away
         Am         Am/G             F
It's not that I'm a man who couldn't love you
  C               E7       F    G#
I know what these arms are for
             C
Please don't go
             Em7/B    A7
Please don't leave me alone
  F                 G         C     Gadd4/B
A mirror is so much harder to hold
  Am                Am/G      F     (G->C walk)
A mirror is so much harder to hold
             C
Please don't go
       Em7/B          A7
Please don't leave me cold
  F                 G         C(add2 -> C)
A mirror is so much harder to hold
