[Verse 1 - play main riff]

I saw lightning coming from the street

You were trembling, hearing your heartbeat

Leaned in closer, let me kiss you on the cheek

Singing to you softly, singing to you sweet


[Chorus]

G       Am                C           D      
I wanna care for you when you are all alone
G      Am                C              D 
Sit inside our house and unplug all our phones
G        Am                    C           D 
Watching raindrops stream down on our windowsill
Am
Let's be in love


[Repeat Intro]


[Verse 2 - play main riff]

Take a walk, take me in your hands

Hear the wind blow, pretend we’re in Japan

I saw lightning, coming from the street

You reached out and it didn’t startle me


[Chorus]

G       Am                C           D      
I wanna care for you when you are all alone
G      Am                C              D 
Sit inside our house and unplug all our phones
G        Am                    C           D 
Watching raindrops stream down on our windowsill
Am
Let's be in love


[Outro]

    C  Cadd2/B  Am            C  Cadd2/B  Am    G

I watched the NPR session of this song being played and I would make only a few changes to this tab.

First, the G-Am-C-D is actually G-Am-C-A6 (the chord cited at the top)

Regarding the A6 chord, he plays it as 030455 as opposed to 030450.

Regarding the G chord, he plays a G on the third fret (334553)

Just a few things I noticed, otherwise this is perfect and I very much appreciate it!! :)
