D#m, C#, G# (or Capo 1 to get rid of all the sharps)

All this time I'd never let you go
            C#                                    G#
And now the same chains that I've kept you in are holding down my soul
I set you up, I gave you life, I dragged you out the fire
            C#                                        G#
And now you knocked me down you shut me out and I can see it in your eyes
Somehow you got it in your head, that you can make it on your own
You were sheltered, loved, and fed but you just couldn't leave it alone

[Chorus (repeat x2)]
Leave it alone, leave it alone
         C#              G#
Leave it alone, leave it alone

Well your heart was here, resting on my lap
        C#                      G#
and I'd do it all again but I'm never coming back
Well I know I'm lying, lying in the cold
             C#                                                G#
Yeah there's snow on the ground, and if I know myself, I'll be leaving down the road
I've been all around the world but I've got nowhere to go
I gave into this lonely life and you can't change me now so

[Chorus + Instrumental]

The ghosts are on the green each and every night
       C#                   G#
Oh the distant light is the hardest part to take
That's the heart of all my pain lying in the cold
       C#                 G#
Oh the distant light in a hue we can't describe, still we know

D#m, C#, G# [x2]

Could it all be over now? We've seen it all the while
           C#                               G#
There's no dimension to the clouds, and the moon and world around
That's the heart of all my pain, cause I don't wanna go
      C#                 G#
Oh the distant light in a hue we can't describe, still we know

Picking pattern?

I think the pre-chorus starting with "I've been around the world..." is actually a weird jazzy F# that looks like this relative to the capo:e --x--b --3--g --2--d --3--a --1--e --1--That might not be exactly right but it seems to work better than a straight F# (or F with the capo).

So after that weird F#, it goes to C, then back to the same F# for the next line and finishes with the G#.

Lack of accuracy. There are some changes missing. There's at least a few chords missing or wrong leading up to the chorus. Be flatC A.
