This sounds pretty accurate, just listen to the song to get the strumming right.

From this second story window...              Even angels...

verse 2 follows the same progression as verse one, and chorus two also follows
chorus one except for the last D minor chord.  It goes into the bridge in F#.

   Mr. Higginson...
   Am I Destined...

Chorus 3 plays just like the two previous choruses, then it goes back to the
palm muted verse style, but it ends on the first F# chord.

   If I die...

intro:
If I die tomorrow 
would this song live on forever
And her is my
Unopened letter to a world
That never shall reply

verse 1:
If I die tomorrow 
would this song live on forever
And her is my
Unopened letter to a world
That never shall reply, never shall reply.

chorus 1:
From my second story window
I can hear the church bells calling out my name
This table is set for one
Even angels would be homesick in this forsaken town.

Verse 2:
On random notes of parchment
I'm scrawling my existence, dressed in white
This candle radiates throughout the night
And it's never burning out, never burning out

Chorus 2:
From this second story window
I can hear the children down on Main Street
They're singing their songs tonight
In the shadows, I will listen to their every movement.

Bridge:
Mr. Higginson, am I not good enough for the world?
Am I destined only to die the same way that I lived, in seclusion?

Chorus 3:
From high upon this mountain
I can almost see your lonely windowsill
They'll carry you off tonight
There's a ghost in your old bedroom
And a candle burning bright.

If I die tomorrow, would this song live on forever?



I think that's how it goes.  It sounds exactly like the CD version of the song.
