Verse 1: 

Dm    C     Bb 
Close to my skin
            Dm
I'm falling in
     C        Bb
Someone who's been

Dm      C      Bb
Sittin' by the phone
           Dm
I'm left alone
      C     Bb
In another zone

Dm    C       Bb        Dm
John says to live above hell
   C       Bb
My will is well

Dm  C     Bb
No one is waiting
          Dm
For me to fail
   C          Bb
My will could sail yeah

Verse 2:
Dm          C           Bb
It's such a waste to be wasted

In the first place
  Dm                C       
I want to taste the taste of
      Bb
Being face to face with common grace
Dm      C           Bb
To meditate on the warmest dream
Dm          C           Bb
And when I walk alone I listen

To our secret theme

Chorus:
Dm           
Your solar eyes are like
Am7
nothing I have ever seen
Dm
Somebody close that can
Am7
see right through
Dm    
I'd take a bullet you
Am7
know that I'd do anything
C           Am
I will for you

Verse 3: 
Dm      C       Bb
Sailin' for the sun
                Dm
'cause there is one
          C         Bb
who nows where I'm from

Dm C       Bb
I care for you
         Dm    C     Bb
I really do I really do

Dm    C     Bb
Come closer now
           Dm
So you can lie
      C     Bb
Right by my side

Dm    C          Bb
Sit alone in the sun
                    Dm
I wrote a letter to you
        C     Bb
Getting over myself

Outro: (Dm C Bb)

Close to my skin
Someone who's been
I'm a falling in

Disasters are
Just another star
Falling in my yard

John says to live above hell
My will is well

Long to be with
Someone to tell
I love your smell

Feel free to comment anything! 
A tip for the last instrumental part: from 17th to 8th bar is a big step, 
if you don't want to let it sound clumsy, then you can always use your thumb for the 8 
on the bass an the melody at the same time :)
