[Intro]

Em  G   Bm   
Em  G   Bm 
Em  G   D    
C   Em  D   C

Em  G   Bm


[Verse 1]

Em     G        Bm
   All is quite on New Year's Day
Em            G           Bm
   A world in white, gets underway
Em           G                        Bm
   I want to be with you, be with you night and day
Em         G          Bm
   Nothing changes on New Year's Day
Em  G    Bm
   ...On New Year's Day


[Chorus]

D              Em
I will be with you again
D              Cmaj7
I will be with you again
 

Em  G  Bm


[Verse 2]

Em         G          Bm
   Under a blood read sky
Em             G        Bm      
   A crowd has gathered black and white
Em        G           Bm
   Arms entwined, the chosen few
Em           G    Bm             D
   Newspaper say, says, say it's true, it's true
    Em
And we can break through
       D                   Cmaj7
Though torn in two, we can be one


[Chorus]

D             Em
I... I will begin again
D             Cmaj7      
I... I will begin again


[Interlude]

Em  G   Bm (x4)
Em  G   D    
C   Em  D   C
Em  G   Bm  (x6)


D            Em
   Maybe the time is right
D        Cmaj7
   Maybe tonight


[Chorus]

D              Em
I will be with you again
D              Cmaj7
I will be with you again


Em  G  Bm


[Outro]

Em           G                Bm
   So we are told this is the golden age
Em                 G              Bm
   And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Em                  G                        Bm
   Though I want to be with you, be with you night and day
Em         G          Bm
   Nothing changes on New Year's Day
Em  G    Bm
   ...On New Year's Day
Em  G    Bm
   ...On New Year's Day

transposed it (-7) to Am C Em and capo on 2
sounds good to me and is better for my voice.

The intro is wrong. You've got the opening 3 chords repeating when they shouldn't. But, overall good job. I play it straight out in Abm (G#m) - it works out well, you don't need a capo, and it is in original key as U2 sings it.
