First off, there are two guitars in the song and since most of us playing are not 
with someone else, I created my own version that plays well with the song.

Verse 1

Em              Am
been up all night
D              G
staring at you
Em             Am                  D
wondering what's on your mind
Em                 Am
i've been this way
D                   G
with so many before
             Em                      Am       D
but this feels like the first time

G       D         G           C
mess up my bed with me
G                D
kick off the covers
C               G  D
i'm waiting
G       D                     G
every word you say i think
              C
i should write down
G         D
i don't want to forget
          C          G  D
come daylight

Verse 2:

Em          Am
happy to lay here
       D                 G
just happy to be here
      Em              Am      D
i'm happy to know you
Em           Am
play me a song
D                  G
your newest one
Em                       Am              D
please leave your taste on my tongue

C      G          Em      D
paperweight on my back
C             G       D
cover me like a blanket

Chorus:

G       D         G           C
mess up my bed with me
G                D
kick off the covers
C               G  D
i'm waiting
G       D                     G
every word you say i think
              C
i should write down
G         D
i don't want to forget
          C          G  D
come daylight

Bridge: Strum Chords
           Am
and no need to worry
G                  C
that's wasting time
           Am
and no need to wonder
G                            C
what's been on my mind
G         D
it's you
G
it's you
      C
it's you

G  D  C  G  D

G       D                     G
every word you say i think
              C
i should write down
G         D
i don't want to forget
          C          G  D
come daylight
G             D
and i give up
  G         C     G
i let you win
       D                          C            G  D
you win 'cause i'm not counting
Em               Am
you made it back
D           G
to sleep again
Em                Am                D
wonder what you're dreaming

I'm trying to learn this! It's so quick it's tough to keep up with the timing (for me anyways.) I like playing the G like this, but good job :)))) Thanks!
