NOTE: You can regularly strum all chords it doesn't matter, but sometimes 
i strike the verses with continuous,
palm-muted downstrokes to the beat of that repetitive sound effect. Until the last 
lines ("Cause you're
right there" and "I was your starlight"). Then i start pulling my palm away while 
playing the last line
making it clearer and clearer then start strumming normally the second the chorus 
starts... Just a suggestion :)

            Intro: F   Dm   F   Dm 

                F                              Dm
                You had the blue note sapphire eyes,
                To back up all those gazes
                To pierce my guard and take my soul off
                To faraway places

                Told me I"ll never be alone,

                Cause you're right there    

                F                          Dm 
                We took a gamble with this love,
                Like sailing to the storm
                With the waves rushing over to take us,
                We were battling against the tide

                You were my beacon of salvation,

                I was your starlight

                F                     Dm
                So don't cry for your love,
                Cry tears of joy
                Cause you're alive cradled in love
                F                     Dm
                So don't cry for your love,
                Cry tears of joy
                               Csus2          Bbsus2         F 
                Cause you're alive cradled in love     uh-uh-oveeeee

                   F   Dm   F   Dm

                I kept the love you gave me alive,
                And now I carry it with me
                I know it's just a tear drop from mother earth,
                But in it I can hear a dolphin sing
                Telling me I'll never be alone,
                I know you're right there

                So with the fire still burning bright,
                I wanna gaze into your light
                If I could see my fortune there,
                You know how the flames can hypnotize

                Do i even dare to speak out your name for fear like it sounds like,
                Like a lover


                So don't cry for your love,
                Cry tears of joy
                Cause you're alive cradled in love
                So don't cry for your love,
                Cry tears of joy
                Cause you're alive cradled in love

                So don't cry for your love,
                Cry tears of joy
                Cause you're alive cradled in love
                So don't cry for your love,
                Cry tears of joy
                Cause you're alive cradled in loveeeee   uh-uh-oveeeeee

Outro:  Bbsus2 and F until the end. Last strum is one single F strum. :) Hope 
yall enjoy playing!!

                           Bbsus2        F               Bbsus2                      F 
                Cradled in loveeee      oveeeee         Cradled in loveeee   uh-uh-oveeee

This is a really good tab chordwise and all the chords are correct in my opinion but in the lyrics there is one mistake and that is pissing me off xD so it is not "I kept the love you game alive". It's "I kept the love you gave me alive". So that's the only mistake you've made and now it's corrected so everything is good in the hood. Thanks dude for the awesome tab :)
