[Verse 1]

C               G           D/F#        Em
  And honestly, I have been begging for answers 
     D                            C
That you and only you can give to me 
               G              D/F#       Em
A voice crying loud I've been crying for days now 
    D                            C
And as I start to run, I stop to breathe 
(And I was nearly scared to death) 
    G             D/F#
And I was nearly scared to death 
Em
(Why you left in paragraphs) 
D
Why you left in paragraphs 
     C
(The words were nearly over us) 
    G                 D/F#
The words were nearly over us 
     Em                         D
You stop and turn and grab your bags 


[Chorus 1]

            G
And I'll be here by the ocean 
Just waiting for proof that there's 
C
sunsets and silhouette dreams 
D/F#     Em
  All my sand castles fall 
         D/F#     G
like the ashes of cigarettes 
    C                       D/F#
And every waves drags me to sea 
         G
I could stand here for hours 
Just to ask God the question
    C 
"Is everyone here make-believe?" 
D/F#     Em
  With a tear in His voice
          D/F#            G 
He said, "Son, that's the question." 
          C
Does this deafening silence 
     D
mean nothing to no one but me? 


[Interlude]

C---D/F#


[Verse 2
]
C(all the way)
  As hours move to minutes 
And minutes take longer to break 
I will be desperately awaiting 
But my tongue won't fall apart 
And we've been sitting here for hours 
All alone and in the dark 
C                       G      D/F#
  So let me think of to word it 
Em                       D
  Is it too soon to say 'perfect'? 
C                  G                     D/F#
  If I could find another thirty minutes somewhere 
         Em
I'm sure everything would find me 
           D
All that's left is just to sing 


[Chorus 2]

            G
And I'll be here by the ocean 
Just waiting for proof that there's 
Em
sunsets and silhouette dreams 
       C
All my sand castles fall 
                  D/F#
like the ashes of cigarettes 
    D                       Em D/F#
And every waves drags me to sea 
         G
I could stand here for hours 
Just to ask God the question
    Em 
"Is everyone here make-believe?" 
       C
With a tear in His voice
He said, "Son, that's the question." 
          D
Does this deafening silence 
mean nothing to no one but me?


[Bridge]

           C                      G
And you'll sing to me sweet until then 
      C                    G
I may never sail Virginia again 
          C              D
Alas this current moves slow for me 
B/Eb               Em(hold)           C
this much you must know...we'll meet again
               C(hold)
And I'll, I'll have you know I'm scared to death 
C
  Tell me once again that you
     Em               D/F# 
will love me till the death 
             G
And should I die, you swear 
     D                 C
that you will come for me
                    Em             D/F#-G-D
As I fade away, you reach out your arms 
     C
(And please don't let me go) 
    Em     D/F#  G   D
And please don't let me go 
     C
(And please don't let me go) 
    Em     D/F#  G   D
And please don't let me go 


[Chorus 1]

            G
And I'll be here by the ocean 
Just waiting for proof that there's 
C
sunsets and silhouette dreams 
D/F#     Em
  All my sand castles fall 
         D/F#     G
like the ashes of cigarettes 
    C                       D/F#
And every waves drags me to sea 
         G
I could stand here for hours 
Just to ask God the question
    C 
"Is everyone here make-believe?" 
D/F#     Em
  With a tear in His voice
          D/F#            G 
He said, "Son, that's the question." 
          C
Does this deafening silence 
     D
mean nothing to no one but me?

This tab is almost completely correct but the reason it might sound wrong to everyone is because instead of playing C (x32010) and such it's all got a g-chord ending... so... I substitute the following chords for his and it sounds extremely accurate.
For his C play - (x32033)
etc... D - (xx0233)
Em - (022033)
G - (3x0033)
D/F# - (200233)
B/Eb - (xx1233)
Also, for the bridge... I change the Em to a completely diff. chord and the C to an E... and it sounds great.
C D
Alas this current moves slow for me
B/Eb (xx2033) G
this much you must know...we'll meet again
