Wait - The Dear Hunter

Props to theClifton, his version sounded very close, but I think this is more accurate.
 
During the instrumental interlude sections and the "I want to give it all up" sections, I tabbed the chords 
as "Cm-Em" because I believe that's technically correct, but an open C instead of Cm sounds just as good.

CAPO 2


[Verse 1]

Em                          F#
 I lost my faith when I was young
Am                            Em
 I clenched my fist to bite my tongue
Em                          F#
 I leave awake from all the things that I had done
      Am                                  Em
Cause there wouldn't be a thing when I moved on


[Chorus 1]

            G
Then I said wait
        B7                     G
Are our bodies really piles of dirt?
           B7
And is the soul just a metaphor?
C                            B7
 I keep my eyes from looking too far up
  G                    B7
I fear that there is a heaven above


[Instrumental]

Cm - Em (x3)
Am - B7


[Verse 2]

Em                          F#
 I stood in lines to bow my head
            Am
I'd fold my hands and speak in tongues
           Em
To whisper worries to the dead
            Em                         F#
But I could tell no apparition heard a single word I said
    Am                               Em
But I'd still call my fear in to the air


[Chorus 2]

            C
Then I said wait
      B7                      G
Is my body really part of the earth
             Em                        C
And is there blood running through my veins?
                 B7
I'll know when I turn to dust
      Em                     G
But I fear the answer isn't enough 
C          B7                  G
So, will I ever know heaven or hell?
      Em                          
Or is eternity something worse?
C                            B7
 I keep my eyes from looking too far up
  Em                    
I fear that there is a heaven above (heaven above, heaven above)


[Instrumental]

Cm - Em (x3)
Am - B7


[Bridge]

Cm                      Em
  I want to give it up  
Cm                      Em
  I want to give it up 
Cm                      Em
  I want to give it up         
      Am                   B7
But I just need it too much


[Chorus 3]

C
Wait
      B7                      G
Is my body really part of the earth
             Em                        C
And is there blood running through my veins?
                 B7
I'll know when I turn to dust
      Em                     G
But I fear the answer isn't enough 
C          B7                  G
So, will I ever know heaven or hell?
      Em                          
Or is eternity something worse?
C                            B7
 I keep my eyes from looking too far up


[Outro]

  Em                    Em
I fear that there is a heaven above
  Em                    Em
I fear that there is a heaven above
  Em                    Em
I fear that there is a heaven above
  G                    Em
I fear that there is a heaven above
  Em                  
I hope there's not a heaven above
