Verse 1:
C9              G           D            Em
And honestly, I have been begging for answers
     D                            C9
That you and only you can give to me
               G              D               Em
A voice crying loud I've been crying for days now
    D                                 C9
And as I start to run, I stop to breathe
(And I was nearly scared to death)
    G             D
And I was nearly scared to death
Em
(Why you left in paragraphs)
D
Why you left in paragraphs
     C9
(The words were nearly over us)
    G                 D
The words were nearly over us
     Em                         D
You stop and turn and grab your bags


Chorus
            G
And I'll be here by the ocean
Just waiting for proof that there's
Em
sunsets and silhouette dreams
        C9
All my sand castles fall
          G               D
like the ashes of cigarettes
     Em                       D
And every waves drags me to sea
         G
I could stand here for hours
Just to ask God the question
     Em
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
        C9
With a tear in His voice
          G                     D
He said, "Son, that's the question."
            Em
Does this deafening silence
                        D
mean nothing to no one but me?


Interlude: C9---D/F#


Verse 2:
Em               C9
As hours move to minutes
G                  D
And minutes take longer to break
Em
I will be desperately awaiting
        C9
But my tongue won't fall apart
                G
And we've been sitting here for hours
                      D
All alone and in the dark
C9                       G      D
So let me think of to word it
Em                       D
Is it too soon to say 'perfect'?
C9                       G                  D
If I could find another thirty minutes somewhere
          Em
I'm sure everything would find me
             D
All that's left is just to sing


Chorus
            G
And I'll be here by the ocean
Just waiting for proof that there's
Em
sunsets and silhouette dreams
        C9
All my sand castles fall
          G               D
like the ashes of cigarettes
     Em                       D
And every waves drags me to sea
         G
I could stand here for hours
Just to ask God the question
     Em
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
        C9
With a tear in His voice
          G                     D
He said, "Son, that's the question."
            Em
Does this deafening silence
                        D
mean nothing to no one but me?


Bridge:
           C9                     G
And you'll sing to me sweet until then
      C9                   G
I may never sail Virginia again
          C9             G
Alas this current moves slow for me
D                Em                  C9
this much you must know...we'll meet again
               C9
And I'll, I'll have you know I'm scared to death
C9
Tell me once again that you
      G                D
will love me till the death
             Em
And should I die, you swear
     D                 C9
that you will come for me
           C9          G             D-Em-D
As I fade away, you reach out your arms
     C9
(And please don't let me go)
     G      D    Em     D
And please don't let me go
     C9
(And please don't let me go)
     G      D    Em     D
And please don't let me go


Chorus
            G
And I'll be here by the ocean
Just waiting for proof that there's
Em
sunsets and silhouette dreams
        C9
All my sand castles fall
          G               D
like the ashes of cigarettes
     Em                       D
And every waves drags me to sea
         G
I could stand here for hours
Just to ask God the question
     Em
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
        C9
With a tear in His voice
          G                     D
He said, "Son, that's the question."
            Em
Does this deafening silence
                        D
mean nothing to no one but me?

This is how I play it, but it's all personal preference!
In all honesty, this is the first tab I ever read, and that was months ago, so thanks for posting this! :D
