This is a really nice cover of the song chasing cars by snow patrol, and is actually 
fairly easy to play and doesnt require re-tuning (like most of their covers), which is 
useful. It may not be fully correct, and they miss out parts of the original song, 
but it goes something like this:

Standard Tuning, Capo 2, tabs and chords relative to capo

E|---------------------------------3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3------|     }

[Main Chorus] - Strum: G - G - D/F# - D/F# - C - C - G - G
each bar stresses the strum on the third beat

[Bridge 2] (the 'lets waste time' part)
just palm-mute the bass notes G, F# and C. It's not quite what they do, but sounds alright.

[Main chorus] repeat, same strumming

[Last part, strum once] G - D/F# - C


[Here are the lyrics]
We'll do it all,
Everything,
On our own.

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone.

If I lay here,
If I just lay here,
Would you lay with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel.

Those three words
Are said too much.
They're not enough.

If I lay here,
If I just lay here,
Would you lay with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old.
Show me a garden that's bursting into life.

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads.

If I lay here,
If I just lay here,
Would you lay with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old.
Show me a garden that's bursting into life.

If I lay here,
If I just lay here,
Would you lay with me and just forget the world?
