Intro:  D A Bm A
        Bm A D A

        D             A                  Bm     A
Verse:  Take what you need while there's time
            D            A          Bm        A
        The city will be earth in a short while
           Bm        D     Bm           A
        If I'm not mistaken it's been in flames
               Bm        A            D        A
        You and I will escape to the seaside

        There is a storm in the distance
        The wind breathing warning of its imminence
        There is a lighthouse five hundred yards down
        You and I will be safe there

        Bm         Em       F#          F#
passage:There is a girl who haunts that lighthouse
            Bm               Em
        She saved me, I was swimming
        F#         F#
        So young I almost drowned
        Em         Bm   F#         F#
        Under the water she sang a story
            Em        Bm
        Of losing her lover
       F#           F#      F#   F# (last F# 2 quarters' length instead of 3)
        She calls a warning

Solo:   (Verse chords)

Verse:  Love, you are foolish, you're tired
        Your sleeplessness makes you a liar
        The city is burning, the ocean is turning
        Our only chance is the lighthouse

Passage:Her lover was a sailor, she went and she waited there
        The door locked from the outside
        Lover never
        arrived so she sings there, soft as a siren
        Luring the ships off their
        course, how alarming

        Bm      Em     F#            F#
        We went in, we climbed up and looked out
        Bm                      Em
        The door locked from the outside
        F#                F# [last chord is 2 quarters instead of 3]
        Three ghosts in a lighthouse

I think the order of the chords for the verse/intro is Bm,A,D,A and also the passage i found to be Dmin then A (x2) and then Bbmajor then Dmin (x2) not deff this is right but it fitted best for me when playing the piano (but the chords should be the same for guitar.)

No it wasn't spot on, it sounds too happy-ish. It's mood is sad, so D and A don't go at all.
