There are subtle differences but the intro and verse are as follows.
Have fun playing the pre-chorus and chorus and fool around with it
to find a good picking pattern.

Intro and Verse:
E:----------------------------------------|
B:----3-----3-----2-2h3----3--------------|
G:------2-----2---2-2--------2------------|
D:--0-----0-----0--------0-----0----------|
A:----------------------------------------|
E:----------------------------------------|


E:----------------------------------------|
B:----3-----3-------5--3-------2h3--------|
G:------0-----0-----0--0----0--2----------|
D:--5-----5-----5---------5---------------|   (X6)
A:----------------------------------------|
E:----------------------------------------|

(Verse 1)
I used to cry out in the middle of the night, "Baby hold me tight"
But there was nobody beside me when I opened my eyes
Now I turn the corner on those days and nights
Something inside me changed and I think I might...

(Pre-Chorus)
            A  Bm
be starting over
G
I don't wanna
 or
... over                 ... I don't wanna run
E:-------------------2-------------------------------------|
B:--------2----------3-------------------3-----------------|
G:------2---2------4---4-------------0------0--------------|
D:----2----------4----------------0-----------4--2p0-------|
A:--0----------2--------------------------------------4--0-|
E:-----------------------------3---------------------------|

A  Bm        G
Oh no, cause you might be the one, baby


Chorus

D                     G
If ever I could love, I think it could be with you
D                     G
If ever I thought I'd find somebody so true
D                    G
I wonder if you feel the same way that I do
D                    G
If ever I could love I think it could be with you


(Verse 2: Repeat verse progression)
You know I cant read your mind my love but it seems to me
Your heart and mine tonight are defying gravity
Somethin' so familiar its still so unknown
The closer that I get I swear it feels like...

      A    Bm
coming home
G
I ready to be brave
A   Bm
Oh yeah, When you look at me and say


D                     G
If ever I could love, I think it could be with you
D                    G
If ever I thought Id find somebody so true
D                    G
I wonder if you feel the same way that I do
D                    G
If ever I could love I think it could be with you

If ever I could love, baby
If ever I could love
If ever I could love

Chorus
If ever I could love, I think it could be with you
If ever I thought Id find somebody so true
I wonder if you feel the same way that I do
If ever I could love I think it could be with you

D
I was so scared to love again,
                                 G
Feel the pain that came when she walked out of my life
D
And got hurt so bad
                                 G
I swore Id never let another get inside this heart of mine
D
But she touched my hand
                          G
and every plan I had disappeared like a falling star
D
Now theres a new beginning
                                 G               D
and Im moving to the rhythm of a beating, braver heart

A braver heart

This is a good tab! May be consider this:

You have:

E:----------------------------------------|
B:----3-----3-------5--3-------2h3--------|
G:------0-----0-----0--0----0--2----------|
D:--5-----5-----5---------5---------------| (X6)
A:----------------------------------------|
E:----------------------------------------|

...and this seems to both play and sound better:

E:----------------------------------------|
B:----3-----3-------5--3-------2h3--------|
G:------2-----2-----2--2----2--2----------|
D:--5-----5-----5---------5---------------| (X6)
A:----------------------------------------|
E:----------------------------------------|

...just one note... but it seems to flow this way.

Thanks for the tab... ***** from me!

I'm far from being an expert but to me the main riff sounds more like:
E:----------------------------------------| |
B:----3-----3-----2-2h3--------3----------| |
G:------2-----2---2-2--------2------------| |
D:--0-----0-----0----------0--------------| |
A:----------------------------------------| |
E:----------------------------------------| |
| (X6)
E:----------------------------------------| |
B:----3-----3-------5--3-------2h3--------| |
G:------0-----0-----0--0----0--2----------| |
D:--5-----5-----5---------5---------------| |
A:----------------------------------------| |
E:----------------------------------------| |

Though the ending of each bar sounds the same suggesting both are either
E:----------------|
B:------3---------|
G:----2-----------|
D:--0-------------|
A:----------------|
E:----------------|
or
E:----------------|
B:-----2h3--------|
G:--0--2----------|
D:----------------|
A:----------------|
E:----------------|

Listening carefully to both ends though, it sounds to me like they each ascend in pinch and maybe are the same.
