Okay, I couldn't find a tab for this awesome song so I did it myself. First
posted tab, so bear with me if I fluff it up. First off, fingering chart:

  G  D  C  Em Bm Cadd9 Am F  Dm

Intro: G D C D x2

G             D        C            D
Not much of a man, but still I am a man,
    G             D           C    D
And you bring out something inside me,
  G              D          C              D
A perfect little diamond, a fragile little fire,
       Em                     Bm        D
You're everything good in the world, to me.

G D          C            D          G
I want to protect you, (I want to protect you)
  D           C           D
I want you to be safe and sound,
   G             D
At night in this world,
       Cadd9                   Am
Such a delicate girl needs someone,
                    D
To look out for the wolves,
             G          D C D
I want to protect you.

  G               D           C              D
I say some stupid shit, don't mean a word of it,
    G            D             C    D
You know I got a lot of love inside me,
     G               D         C             D
This world's an ugly place for such a pretty face
        Em                     Bm   D
They're comin' at you from all sides but they gotta get through me.

G D          C            D          G
I want to protect you, (I want to protect you)
  D           C           D
I want you to be safe and sound,
   G             D
At night in this world,
       Cadd9                   Am
Such a delicate girl needs someone,
                    D
To look out for the wolves,
             G          D C D
I want to protect you.

    G         D          C                D
Not many understand, but I'm your biggest fan,
G          D              C    D   
The savage fools cannot appreciate,
    G          D    C               D
The miracle of you, how could it be true,
       Em                     Bm    D
You're everything good in the world.

G D          C            D          G
I want to protect you, (I want to protect you)
  D           C           D
I want you to be safe and sound,
   G             D
At night in this world,
       Cadd9                   Am
Such a delicate girl needs someone,
                    D
To look out for the wolves,
             G          D C D
I want to protect you.



Now, the eagle eyed folks out there will have noticed that there's an F
major and a D minor chord in the chart, but not the tab. Well, that's
because I assumed that you folks at home don't have a capo – if this is the
case, go get one, they're cool. Anyways, this song is actually played with
the capo on fret 7, in which case the order of chords is something like this:

Intro/Verse/Chorus: C G F G
Pre-Chorus: Am Em G
Pre-Verse: C G F Dm G

Play around with this song, have some fun, play Cadd9 instead of C a few
times, add a Dsus4 in during the long Ds, whatever. Peace, love, and
chocolate.
