(The acoustic parts can seem as if they need more fill, to do so play both the G and D 
strings when playing the picking patterns)

E6           A                      E7M
  Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
E6         A                    E7M
  I had to find you, Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart
E6             A                        E7M
  Tell me your secrets, And ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start

E6           A                  E7M
  Running in circles, Coming up tails
Heads on a science apart


(For the strumming parts such as the chorus, just strum the chords and you can add in 
this during the a chord if you want)

E6       A                E7M
  Nobody said it was easy,    It's such a shame for us to part
E6       A                E7M
  Nobody said it was easy,    No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh, take me back to the start

E6           A                        E7M
  I was just guessing, At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
E6             A                    E7M
  Questions of science, Science and progress
Don't speak as loud as my heart
E6            A                      E7M
  Tell me you love me, Come back and haunt me
Oh, and I rush to the start
E6           A                E7M
  Running in circles, Chasing tails
Coming back as we are

E6       A                E7M
  Nobody said it was easy,  Oh It's such a shame for us to part
E6       A                E7M
  Nobody said it was easy,    No one ever said it would be this hard

In addition to comment above.
from Fmaj7 to C play a Fadd9

From C to Am the Csus = more as a Cadd9 but without middlefinger on D

Hope this helps a bit? Enjoy the great song
