LIAM FINN---As tabbed By Brauney
note: I think he is tuned down 1/2 step so that he hits an open E for the first
chord (Eb) but I have it tabbed out for standard tuning.  


  Bb/Eb           Cm            Gm7          Fm7         Bb/Eb       G

Verse 1:
on the voyage home through the haze of the night
when i saw your face it was bathed in the light
full sky of stars we collided like cars
in a town of people who always drive drunk

Chorus 1:

    Cm                               Bb/Eb
and i don't know what to do
G                             Fm7
by your side i will lie awake
Cm                         Bb/Eb
tell me love isn't true
    G                              Fm7
is this just a trick to procreate?

Verse 2
the dawn approach we'll arrive at the shore
and the boat that we boarded will unboard us all
there we will part, to our homes we return
i was bittersweet....to have someone to yearn

Chorus 2 (same chords as first)
for i don't know what to do
by your side i will lie awake
tell me love isn't true
is this just a trick to procreate?

Bb/Eb                     Cm
everyone living as one 
Gm7                                       Fm7
down in the hall where i need you
Bb/Eb                         Cm
ill take you into my arms
Gm7                      Fm7
thats when i will leave
Bb/Eb                     Cm
everyone living as one
Gm7                      Fm7
one, morning to breathe
Bb/Eb                                  Cm
i knew that this day would come
Gm7                                Fm7
its such a permanent feeling                         X2

The Bb/Eb chords don't sound right to me -- I think they are just Eb. And there should be an Eb (or Bb/Eb, if you prefer) after both of the Fm7 chords in the chorus. Overall, if one is going to go with my Eb premise, then the song is easily played with a capo on fret one, making the Intro/Verse chords: D-Bm-F#m7-Em7-D-F#. Thanks for mapping out the chords to such a beautiful song.
