Just the basics folks.....Jazz it up however you like, but this will get you started.


Capo IV
All chords shapes are relative to the capo

[Intro]

C / G / Am x2


[Verse]

C                             G
I spark a match and watch the candle burn 

Am
The wick runs out and then love takes its turn 

C                    G
On fallen angels and broken sounds 

Am
We will last past the final round 

C                          G
It took a while for you to find me 

Am
But I was hiding in the lime tree 

C                     G
Above the city in the rain cloud 

Am
I poked a hole and watched it drain out 


[Verse]

C               G
Parallel to the city streets 

Am
Our broken crowns beneath our feet 

C                         G
But as we walk across the diamonds 

Am
We know that love is always shining 

C                       G
So save me love save me all the time 

Am
I’ll wash you down with a simple sip of wine 

C                            G
And toast my glass to all my loved ones 

Am
To let them know that the stars well they still shine


[Chorus]

C                          G
It took a while for you to find me 

Am
But I was hiding in the lime tree 

C                     G
Above the city in the rain cloud 

Am
I poked a hole and watched it drain out   

(Repeat Chorus until the end)

In my opinion you just kept it way to simple, I think you missed nearly everything that makes this song so good.
Oh, and an Am doesn't even really fit in the verse.

In my opinion this is perfect. Of course you could 'jazz it up' as the poster said, there's always room for jazzing it up. But this gives you the basic chord progression, and you can make it yours from there.
