Hey, write me if you disagree.

Okay, the song consists of a riff over the verses and then
a simple chord progression for the chorus.  Here's the riff:

---------------|---------------|-----(3)-------|----------------|
------3------3-|------3------3-|------3------3-|------3-------3-|
----0----0-----|----0----0-----|----0----0-----|----0-----------|
----2----------|----0----------|----2----------|----0-------0---|
--0--------0---|-2---------2---|-3---------3---|--------0h2-----|
---------------|---------------|---------------|-3--------------|
  Am             G/B             Cadd9           G
Play the riff over the verses.

[verse]
we sing the the nightingale song alive
streets never border further than my sight
we sing the nightingale song alive
we might be different but our hearts won't lie

[chorus]
F
And little ever changes
   Am7
If anything at all
        Dm7               C             G
But the song sings loudly through these halls

[verse]
we sing the nightingale song alive
we might be different but our hearts won't lie

[chorus]
    F
And little ever changes when you
Am
View it from the sky
    Dm7
The damage we encounter
C
The earth just passes by
F
And little ever changes
Am
If anything at all
         Dm7                C        G
And we remind ourselves how small we are

The picking pattern is not right. It is missing a few notes. Listen for the G played on the 3rd fret of the 6th string, the E played on the 2nd fret of the 4th string, and the occasional G played on the 3rd fret of the 1st string. The first G major chord in the chorus is actually a D major, so the pattern is F, Am, D, C, G. Don't skip the G in the ending double chorus; play all 5 chords twice. Lastly, the lyric "streets never border further than my sight" is actually "streets never border further than my eyes".
