[Verse]
     G      D         C     Cmaj7
It's easier not to be wise
G              D             C      Cmaj7
Measure these things by your brains
  G         D          C  Cmaj7
I sank into Eden with you
G            D             C  Cmaj7
Alone in the church by and by
      G          D              C   Cmaj7
I'll read to you love save your eyes
G                     D          C   Cmaj7
You'll need them your boat is at sea
     G         D               C         Cmaj7
Your anchor is up, you've been swept away
         G           D               C     Cmaj7
And the greatest of teachers won't hesitate

   B
To leave you there by yourself chained to fate


[Chorus]
E  B   G
I alone love you
E  B   G
I alone tempt you
E  B   G
I alone love you
A
Fear is not the end of this
E  B   G
I alone love you
E  B   G
I alone tempt you
E  B   G
I alone love you


[Verse]
    G       D          C     Cmaj7       
It's easier not to be great
    G              D             C   Cmaj7
And measure these things by your eyes
   G          D              C     Cmaj7
We long to be here by his resolve
  G          D             C  Cmaj7
Alone in the church by and by
    G         D        C   Cmaj7
To cradle the baby in space
   B
And leave you there by yourself chained to fate

[Chorus]
E  B   G
I alone love you
E  B   G
I alone tempt you
E  B   G
I alone love you
A
Fear is not the end of this
E  B   G
I alone love you
E  B   G
I alone tempt you
E  B   G
I alone love you
A
Yeah
E  B   G
I alone love you
E  B   G
I alone tempt you
E  B   G
I alone love you
A       B

[Bridge]
B
Oh now we took it back too far
B
Only love can save us now
B
All these riddles that you burn
B
All come running back to you
B
All these rhythms that you hide
B
Only love can save us now
B
All these riddles that you burn
B           G
yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus]
E  B   G
I alone love you
E  B   G
I alone tempt you
E  B   G
I alone love you
A
Fear is not the end of this
E  B   G
I alone love you
E  B   G
I alone tempt you
E  B   G
I alone love you
A

The guitar is tuned a semitone lower, but other than that, it's all perfect.

I like this chord post better than the power chord version (which adds some A5's and G5's in places I'm not sure they are needed).

The chorus timing is a bit off, but hard to show over just 4 words ("I alone, love you").

Here's what I came up with:
1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &|
E . . B . . G .
/ / / / / . / //
. I a-lone, love you
. I a-lone, tempt you

The timing of the B switch is a bit strange and then the G is real quick, almost just in a transition back to E. You can do down strums on all the E and B chords and a D-u-d, quickly moving towards G to get the timing/rythm down.

I'm using:
E = 022100
B = x13331
G = [320]003 - briefly hitting the strings in brackets 3 times

I meant to say:

a D-u-d, quickly on G moving back towards E to get the timing/rythm down.

I also screwed up the timing I was trying to explain (nice job). Try:

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &|
E . . . B . . G .
/ / / / / . / //
. I a-lone, love you
. I a-lone, tempt you

I'm making this worse not better, aren't I...
