NOTE: I have seen this song called by other names
      as well as the one that is named here...
      SLEEPLESS (THROUGH TIME) (See video linked)
      Some even sound a little different. The other 
      names I have seen this song called are:
      SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, and just plain SLEEPLESS.

      This chord tab is based on the video I have linked.
      Please rate accordingly.

VERSE:
 D
Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl. 
        G
She was absolutely perfect in an imperfect world. 
   D
Forever's a promise, it's more than just a word.
       G
They meant it to each other, of that they were sure. 
         D
He came home to her crying at the top of the stairs. 
            G
He asked, "baby what's the matter?" as he pushed back her hair. 
          D
She said honey I'm sick. 
                     A
What the hell did I do? 

          G                       D
And with hate in his heart, he screamed at the moon. 


CHORUS:
   D                             G
Please don't take her away from me, 
                    D                 G   Bm
She truly is everything, that I have left. 

Bm    F#m                A
   As selfish as it may seem, 
                     D
I need you here with me. 


VERSE:
 D
Day after day, he stood by her side, 
                              G                 D
While Sleepless in Seattle, played through his mind. 

 D
Forever seems longer when you've got your whole life, 
                   G                              D
But forever is forgotten where the end draws the line. 

           D
She said "honey just listen, listen to me, 
G                                       D
We should be together in a boat on the sea." 

    D
He held back his tears, and spoke quietly, 
         G                                  D
"When I picture forever, it's you here with me." 


CHORUS:
  D                             G
Please don't take her away from me, 
                    D                 G   Bm
She truly is everything, that I have left. 
Bm     D                 A
   As selfish as it may seem, 
                     D
I need you here with me


CHORUS:
      D                            G
And please just let her go painlessly. 
                          D
Let her drift on in her dreams. 
                             G    Bm
Just don't make her feel a thing. 
Bm       D                 A
   Just try and get some sleep. 
                          D
This angel deserves her wings. 
 

BREAK:
     D                    G
As leaves fall from the trees, 
                 Bm
She became a memory, 
                        Bm    G
To a man who lost everything-ing. 

   D                      G
Forever doesn't mean anything. 
                        Bm
Just a promise that we take.  
                             G
But there's hope for you and me. 


OUTRO:
      D                         A          D
She looked to the sky and with one final breath, 
       F#                   G          D
Said "take this heart from out of my chest. 
 D
Carry it far with the love you possess. 
     G                            D
I'm sorry my boy, but I tried my best.

Thank you very much! Shortly after I started playing guitar my friend showed me this song and wanted me to sing it for her (she is nuts, but that is a tale for another time) but, due to me being new I didn't know for the life of me how to tell the chords. Much appreciated! :)
