full credit to the other tab for this one (version 1), all the hard work was done by them. 
I'm just doing the full tab for the picking pattern to help others wanting to learn
 

please note that this is a basic structure of the song, not the
100% accurate note-for-note correct version

                                               low         high
Tune top & bottom string down to D so it's this: D A D G B D
                                               top         bottom

                         ^     ^
 this should be an upstrum, and if you listen to the song you can hear
  this chord being strumed lightly to lead into the next progression.

& im worried that i  blew my only chance..



CHORUS (listen to the song for strumming patterns):

G               D             A                       D
Whispers in the dark, steal a kiss and you'll break a heart
             G                     D                A                D
Pick up your clothes and curl your toes, learn your lesson, leave me whole
         G             D              A       D
Spare my shins for the ark, I was too slow to depart
      G                 D              A                D
I'm a cad but I'm not a fraud, I'd set out to serve the lord
A         D          G                 D
...And my heart, was colder when you'd gone
A                D         G                    D
...And I lost my head, but found the one that I loved

(chords shown below for last line of chorus)
Under the suuuuuun,  under the suuuuuuuuuuuuun..   

D|--------0---0-----------------0-----0---0--0----|
B|--------0---0-----------------0-----0---0--3----|
G|--------9---11----------------9-----11--6--2----|
D|--------0---0-----------------0-----0---0--0----|
A|--------x---x-----------------x-----x---x--0----|
D|--------9---12----------------9-----12--7--0----|

after that line you can hear the last D chord being played around with,
then it goes back to the pre-chorus but it's strummed & palm-muted 
with a slight variation of chords.  Once again listen for the strumming
pattern, this is just a basic structure:


D|------------------------------------|-------------------------||
B|------------------------------------|-------------------------||
G|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-||

D|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-||
..fingers tap      into what we were    once
