Capo 3

  Em  Am Em            Em Am Em
Ooooooooooooh, ooooooooooooh

 Em                      
He told her when she played, 
         Am               Em
wings sprouted from her shoulder blades 
     G                              D
And every bone inside her seemed to change.
    Em           
So on her fingers moved 
      Am                    Em
Over notes she hoped would soothe,
      G                            D
His jagged soul, carressing every groove.


        C                 G     
Oh and how she longed to say
             Em                 D 
That she'd missed his troubled ways,
        C                 G            D 
Oh and if she could she'd do it all again.
                C                   G 
Cause sometimes every word has been used,
           Em               D
And theres nothing left to do
     C               G                 D               G6*
But hold the one you can't have in the sweet arms of a tune.

    Em                     Am             Em
A year ago today New York City seemed to fall away,
    G                                D           
To leave only the bed in which they laid.
       Em                                               
But an island is just that
        Am                  Em              
Oh and when the world came flooding back
      G                                D    
All pillars underneath them began to crack

          C              G              
Now he's sitting on her floor
               Em              D                  
She's playing all the minor chords
         C                 G                D
Wishing so damn hard he'd kiss her like before 
           C                    G 
Sometimes every word has been used,
             Em             D
And there’s nothing left to do
     C                 G                D               G
But hold the one you can't have in the sweet arms of a tune.
     C                  G                 D              Em  Am Em
Yeah hold the one you can't love in the sweet arms of a tune. 

  Em Am Em        Am       Em     
Ooooooooooooh,            oooh

                  C                  G
Cause sometimes every inch of you is bruised,
             Em               D   
And there’s nothing left to prove
         C                G                 D               G
So just hold the one you can't have in the sweet arms of a tune.
      C                G                 D               G6*     
Yeah hold the one you can't love in the sweet arms of a tune.

Sounds good to me, except, it should be capo 2, not 3 :)

Chords seem perfect to me, except I would just slightly change the tab part to

|------------------------------|
|--------------------------1\0-|
|--------------0-----------0---|
|-------------0----------------|
|--------0/2-------------------|
|--3--3--------------3--3------|

The A chord in the chorus is possibly a C#m. I think it follows the movement of the song and melody better. (played on piano not guitar).
