The previous tab was nearly spot-on, but I tried to add in some of the notes contributed 
the piano so that if you're playing this on guitar without a piano, that it 'sounds' 
like the complete song. Obviously, use your better judgment.
Don't let the lengthy chord names fool you, they're rather simple changes (see bottom of 
for chord diagrams). Many chords use the thumb over the top to get the low E string.
Cheers,

Verse 1:
(Pattern 1)
I don’t know you, but I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me, and always fool me
And I can’t react

(Pattern 2)
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out


Chorus:
C    Cadd9    Cmaj7      C
Take this     sink   -   ing
Am   Asus4  Asus2    Am
Boat and    point    it
Fmaj7  Dm add9  Fdim5maj7  Fmaj7   Cadd4  Cadd4* (OR C6/9sus4)
Home   we’ve    still      got     ti-----me
C     Cadd9  Cmaj7  C
Raise your   hope---ful
Am    Asus4  Asus2  Am
Voice you    have    a
Fmaj7  Dm add9  Fdim5maj7  Fmaj7    Cadd4  Cadd4* (OR C6/9sus4)
Choice you      make       it       no---w

Verse 2:
(Pattern 1)
Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
And moods that take me, and erase me
And I’m painted black

(Pattern 2)
Well you have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Chorus:

I don't see how you think the A comes before the F in the chorus
