Originally tabbed by Macheeoo, I adjusted it and feel it's more accurate now.

Standard Tuning - CAPO 5

INTRO
F Am/E Gm Dm C A# (x2)

VERSE 1
F    Am/E Gm   
Hear my voice
        Dm        C        A#
I came out of the woods by choice
F            Am/E    Gm
Shelter also gave us shade
       Dm      C     F
In the dark I have no name

F              Am/E       Gm
So leave that click in my head
         Dm           C            A#
I will remember the words that you said
F                        Am/E Gm
With a clouded mind and heavy heart
       Dm           C          A#
But I am sure we'll see a new start


CHORUS
Dm  C              F        A#
      So when your hopes on fire
Dm  C              F       A#
      But you know your desire
            Dm                C
Don't hold a glass over the flame
               F     C    A#
Don't let your heart grow cold
      Dm         C
I will call you by name
       F     C      A#
I will share your load


TRANSITION
Dm Dm Dm Dm


BRIDGE
Dm           Dm
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
  DmSus4 Dm A#    F    C   Dm
Cause I'm a hopeless wanderer
Dm           Dm
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
  DmSus4 Dm A#    F    C   F
Cause I'm a hopeless wanderer


TRANSITION

VERSE 2
F          Am/E        Gm
I wrestled long with my youth
           Dm        C       A#
I find it hard to live in the truth
F                 Am/E  Gm
But do not tell me all is fine
                Dm       C       F
When I lose my head, I lose my spine

F            Am/E       Gm
So leave that click in my head
           Dm        C             A#
I will remember the words that you said
F                  Am/E    Gm
You brought me out from the cold
     Dm               C          A#
O How I long, how I long to grow old


CHORUS
Dm  C              F        A#
      So when your hopes on fire
Dm  C              F    C  A#
      But you know your desire
            Dm                C
Don't hold a glass over the flame
               F     C    A#
Don't let your heart grow cold
      Dm         C
I will call you by name
       F     C      A#
I will share your road

Well done - if you watch the video of them live at Glastonbury in 2011 he clearly has it capoed at 5.
The DmSus4 is a nice touch and works well.

At the end of the chorus I think it sounds nice to play A# - F/C - C - F (ie leaving the bass note on the 5th string until the end).
Not sure if that's how they play it though so I haven't put it as a correction!

Excellent work here. Thank you for the contribution. I'm glad to find a tab that is so well made after the actual video.I'm watching this video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TDrbPmhgXUand I don't see him change chords from the Am/E to the Gm in the verse. Also, the Am/E looks very much like an Am in the video. This may just be a difference they decided to make at this concert, but I'm not sure. What fingerings are you using for these?

Some imprecisions in the outro, but the rest is perfect.
Good job!
