My song is love
C5                  Em                   G5

You don't have to be alone

C5            Em       G5
Your heavy heart
C5           Em      G5 / F
Is made of stone
C5                  Em                    G5
And it's so hard to see you clearly
F5                    C                    G5
You don't have to be on your own
F5                   C                      G5
You don't have to be on your own

F5                  C                     G5
And I'm not gonna take it back
F5                 C                      G5
And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
F5                C                        G5
You're the target that I'm aiming at
F                C                       G5

My song is love
C         Em          G
My song is love unknown,
C         Em          G
But I'm on fire freely, clearly
F               C                   G
You don't have to be alone

You're the target that I'm aiming at
F                C                       G
And I'm nothing on my own

I'm not gonna leave it until it's much too late
F                  C                     G
On a platform, I'm gonna stand and say
F                  C                     G
That I'm nothing on my own
F                  C                     G

This tab is accurate, I saw him play it on a live acoustic session video...he uses these exact chords (Chris doesn't barre them)...so it can't be wrong. I don't think Chris uses the capo but I think its easier for that Fm ->which becomes Em with the capo. Good job mate!

The bridge is actually incorrect. The first three lines begin with a Dm, not F.
