[Em] 000220
[Bm] 03442x
[G]   330023
[Dsus2] 0320xx
[Asus2] 00220x
[Dsus2/F#] 032002
[Cadd9] 33023x  (better is play it like this 03023x)

Intro: [Em],[Dsus2/F#].[G].[Asus2]

[Em]Every time we do [Dsus2/F#]this 
I [G]fall for [Asus2]her 
[Em]Wave after wave after [Dsus2/F#]wave 
It's [G]all for [Asus2]her 
[Em]I know this can't be [Dsus2/F#]wrong i say 
and i'll [G]lie to keep her happy 
As [Asus2]long as i know that you [Em]know 
That today i [Dsus2/F#]belong 
Right here with [G]you 
[Asus2]Right here with you... 
And so [Em]we watch the sun come up 
From the [Dsus2/F#]edge of the deep green [G]sea [Asus2] 
And she [Em]listens like her head's on [Dsus2/F#]fire 
Like she [G]wants to believe in [Asus2]me 
So i [Em]try 
Put your [Dsus2/F#]hands in the [G]sky [Asus2] 
We'll be [G]here forever 
And we'll [Asus2]never say goodbye... 

[Em]I've never [Bm]been so 
Colourfully-[Cadd9]see-through-[Asus2]head before 
[Em]I've never [Bm]been so 
[Em]And all i [Bm]want is to keep it like [Cadd9]this 
You and me [Asus2]alone 
A secret [Em]kiss 
And don't go [Bm]home 
Don't go [Cadd9]away 
Don't let this [Asus2]end 
Please [Em]stay 
[Dsus2/F#],[G],[Asus2]Not just for [Em]today 

[Em]Never never never never [Bm]never never never never [Cadd9]never let me [Asus2]go she says 
[Em]Hold me like this for a [Bm]hundred thousand [Cadd9]million days [Asus2]
But suddenly she [Em]slows 
And looks down at my [Bm]breaking face 
[Cadd9]Why do you cry? [Asus2]what did i say? 
But [Em]it's just rain i [Bm]smile 
[Cadd9]Brushing my tears [Asus2]away... 

[Bm]  I wish i could just [Cadd9]stop 
I know another [Dsus2]moment will break my [Em]heart 
Too many [Bm]tears 
Too many [Cadd9]times 
Too many [Dsus2]years i've cried [Em]over you 

[Em]How much more can we [Dsus2/F#]use it up? 
[G]Drink it dry? 
[Asus2]Take this drug? 
[Em]Looking for something [Dsus2/F#]forever gone 
But [G]something 
We will [Asus2]always want? 

[Em]Why why [Bm]why are you letting me [Cadd9]go? she says[Asus2] 
[Em]I feel you pulling [Bm]back 
I feel you [Cadd9]changing shape...[Asus2] 
[Em]And just as i'm breaking [Bm]free 
She [Cadd9]hangs herself in [Asus2]front of me 
[Em]Slips her dress like a [Bm]flag to the floor 
And [Cadd9]hands in the sky 
[Asus2]Surrenders it all... 

[Bm]I wish i could just [Cadd9]stop 
I know another [Dsus2]moment will break my [Em]heart 
Too many [Bm]tears 
Too many [Cadd9]times 
Too many [Dsus2]years i've cried for [Em]you 
It's always the [Bm]same 
Wake up in the [Cadd9]rain 
Head in [Dsus2]pain 
Hung in [Em]shame 
A different [Bm]name 
Same old [Cadd9]game 
Love in [Dsus2]vain 
And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles 
Away from home again...

A couple things:

First of all, the chords are completely correct, except for maybe the intro. What I do that works is a [022400], the release to a [020400]. That usually gets the right sound, and matches the bass.

Now, for the corrections. The chord chart that you put up is in reverse order. It should look like this:

[Em] 022000
[Bm] x24430
[G] 320033
[Dsus2] xx0230
[Asus2] x02200
[Dsus2/F#] 200230
[Cadd9] x32033 (better is play it like this x32030)

Its a minor thing, I know, but it can confuse newer players.

Second thing is the way the chords are put in the song. Again, this is a very minor thing, but it is helpful to many players if the chords are put above the lyrics, rather than mixing them within the lyrics.

Other than that, it's solid. Plus, there is a main riff. Now, I know that this is a chord tab, but I think this'll make a few people happy:


Not sure about the last notes, but its within that range. Nicely done.
