3rd fret
This is my first tab, it's an easy version and it isn't exactly how they play it 
but it's how I play it, and it sounds nice when you sing along. Also, I think they 
start with a chorus but I'll be calling it Verse 1...

Standard Tuning
Capo 3rd Fret

CHORDS:
G - 320033
D - 200232 *I don't know what to call this (maybe F#/D?)
Cadd9 - 032033
Em7- 022033
A - 002220

STRUM PATTERN (I made this up, so feel free to play however way you want):
DDU U DU, play this twice for each chord except for when you play 'where you'd 
gone' and 'world spins madly on' there you play it once as well as the outro, and 
at the bridge strum the chords with an asterisk by it only once.

INTRO:
G-D-Cadd9-D (2x)

VERSE 1:
G                              D
Woke up and wished that I was dead
                     Cadd9
With an aching in my head
                     D
I lay motionless in bed
             Cadd9                 G-D
I thought of you, and where you'd gone
              Em7        D   G
And let the world spin madly on

BREAK:
G-D-Cadd9-D (1x)

VERSE 2:
          G                    D
And everything that I said I'd do
                          Em7
Like make the world brand new
                       D
And take the time for you
          Cadd9                            G-D
Just got lost and slept right through the dawn
         Em7          D   G
And the world spins madly on

BREAK:
G-D-Cadd9-D

BRIDGE:
Cadd9         G
I~    let the day go by
Cadd9        G
I~    always say goodbye
   Cadd9*          A*
I watch the stars from my windowsill
     Cadd9*                     D*
The whole world is moving, but I'm standing still.

BREAK:
G-D-Em7-D (2x)

VERSE 3:
G                               D
Woke up and wished that I was dead
                     Em7
With an aching in my head
                     D
I lay motionless in bed
             Cadd9                G-D
The night is here and the day is gone
         Em7          D   G      D
And the world spins madly on

OUTRO:         
    Cadd9                        G-D
I thought of you and where you'd gone
        Em7            D  G
And the world spins madly on
        Em7           D  G
And the world spins madly on
        Em7          D  G       D   Cadd9  D   G*
And the world spins madly on, and on~, and on~
