F                     C         Cadd9 
 I opened my eyes last night and saw you in the low light
F                                    Am                 C
 Walking down by the bay, on the shore, staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore
F                            C          Cadd9
 I was feeling the night grow old and you were looking so cold
F
 Like an introvert, I drew my overshirt
Am                     C
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before
F                         C        Cadd9
 You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me
F
 Running into the dark underground
Am                  C
 All the subways around create a great sound

F                          C
 To my motion fatigue: farewell
     Cadd9
With your ear to a seashell
F
 You can hear the waves in underwater caves
Am                 Fsus2/A       Fmaj7       C
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room


Fsus2/A              Fmaj7
 Time together isn't ever quite enough
C                      Cadd9
 When you and I are alone, Ive never felt so at home
Fsus2/A                       Fmaj7
 What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
Am       Asus4   C     Cadd9
 We need time,    only time



Same progression repeats for the whole song.

I think this part, in the intro:

e|-----------------------------------------|
B|---------3-----3/5---------3-1-----------|
G|-------0---0---0---------0-----4-0-------|
D|-----2-------2---------2-----------2-----|
A|---3-----------------3-------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

is easier to play like this:

e|-----------------0-----------------------|
B|---------3-----------------3-1-0---------|
G|-------0---0---0---------0-------0-------|
D|-----2-------2---------2-----------2-----|
A|---3-----------------3-------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

You, dont have to move your fingers around as much.. =]
