Tabbed from the acoustic 'single' version.  If you want to play it like Rachel 
does with a capo on 5 use the UG tool to adjust these chords down 5 semitones to 
Am, C, C/B, F, G etc. Enjoy!

Dm
Preparing flowers she is faced
          F                  F/E
With the man, the ghost has laced the ribbon,
Bb            C
No amount of soul she's given,
      F         F/E     Dm
She don't know what to give.

Dm
Sit in empty rooms together,
      F                 F/E
She wants to fit the shards together,
Bb                   C
Find out what they lost,
                 F   F/E   Dm
When they lost him.

Dm
She fears she'll crack the eggshells,
         F              F/E
But the pendulum still swings,
Bb                C                F    F/E   Dm
Delicate door unhinged is within sight.

Bb      Bb/G

         F       F/E
As this rose it knows,
     Bb                   C
The cost of those who're lost at sea
  F                F/E        Bb
These waves won't carry everyone,
           C         F    Fsus2
And they won't carry me.

      Dm
This tree is anchored to the ground,
      F                     F/E
The birds take flight, the blossoms bound,
Bb                 C
I won't let them fall,
                  F   F/E   Dm
I won't let them fall.

Dm
Don't make this cold for me,
   F             F/E
I feel it snowing at my feet,
Bb              C
Take me down upon my knees,
F   F/E   Dm
I think I need you,
   Bb       Bb/G         C
I think I need you to know:

           F       F/E
That this rose it knows,
     Bb                   C
The cost of those who're lost at sea
  F                 F/E       Bb
These waves won't carry everyone,

And they won't carry me.

The cost of those who're lost at sea

Sleep easy in your bed at night.
