(Strum chords once, to imitate piano)

[Verse 1]
               D                 Dsus2
The birds they sang, at break of day.
       Em7no5              Dsus2
"Start again", I hear them say.
        A            Aadd4 D
It's so hard to just walk away.
               D           Dsus2
The birds they sang, all a choir,
       Em7no5         Dsus2
"Start again a little higher".
       A          Aadd4  D
It's a spark in a sea of gray.

[Verse 2]
    D      G/A
The sky is blue,
             D             G/A
Dreamed that lie 'til it's true,
     A      A7       A       A7sus4
Then takin' back the punch I threw,
   D         G/A
My arms turn wings,
          D      G/A
Oh, those clumsy things
        A          A7        D
Send me up to that wonderful world
    Dsus2       A7sus4   D
And then I'm up with the birds.

(Now with feeling, listen to the song for strum pattern)
D Dsus2 D Dsus2

[Verse 3]
              D             Dsus2         D       Dsus2
Might have to go where they don't know my name
          Em11no5/A Dsus2         Em11no5/A Dsus2
Float all over the  world just to see her   again
      D             Dsus2    D      Dsus2
And I won't show or fear any pain,
     Em11no5/A     Dsus2       Em11no5/A   Dsus2
Even though all my armor might rust in the rain
         Em                  G
A simple plot but I know one day
     Em                    D    Dsus2  D  Dsus2
Good things are coming our way
         Em                  G
A simple plot but I know one day
     Em                    D     Dsus2  D  Dsus2
Good things are coming our way,
Em G Em G  (listen closely for the strumming pattern)
Oh, yeah...

Great Tab!

I'm thinking the note you ring out at the end with is just a D right?

It's maybe not presize, but fit to my voice and sounds just great! I don't even want to look for genuine version )) Thank you for your work and time.
By the way, the chord "Em11no5/A" it is Em9.
This song also have piano intro, that can be played in arranged version on guitar. Here the link below:
