[Verse]

Em              C       G
Talking like we used to do
Em            C       G
It was always me and you
Em             C        G
Shaken up and shippin' out
Em               C        G
Check me in and check me out

Em                  C       G
Do you like walking in the rain
          Em                    C       G
When you think of love, do you think of pain 
Em              C         G
You can tell me what you see
Em                 C       G
I will choose what I believe


[Chorus]

G           C/G
Hold on, darling

This body is yours, this body is yours and mine
G           C/G
Hold on my darling
                                       (Em)
This mess was yours, now your mess is mine


[Interlude]

Em  C  G  G    x4


[Verse]

Em              C      G
See you in the market place
Em                C  G
Walking around at 8 AM
Em               C         G
Got two hours before my flight
Em             C      G
Luck be on my side tonight

            Em            C        G
You're the reason that I feel so strong
     Em              C       G
The reason that I'm hanging on
     Em              C         G
You know you gave me all that time
Em                 C      G
Oh, did I give enough of mine?


[Chorus]

G           C/G
Hold on, darling

This body is yours, this body is yours and mine
G           C/G
Hold on my darling
                                       (Em)
This mess was yours, now your mess is mine


[Interlude]

Em  C  G  G    x4


[Bridge]

Em               C    
Bring me to your house and tell me
G              D
Sorry for the mess, ''Hey I don't mind''
Em               C

G                        D
You're talking in your sleep, out of time
Em               C

G                            D
Well you still make sense to me, your mess is mine


[Outro]

Em  C  G  G

Em  C  G  G
          Your mess is mine
Em  C  G  G

Em  C  G  G
      This body is yours and this body is mine
Em  C  G  G

Em  C  G  G
          Your mess is mine
Em  C  G  G

Em  C  G
       Your mess is mine

Wonderful to see this up already. Jolly good showWhen I play it I use very open string chords shapes. And I also reckon an A minor works for the second G in the main riff. Em C G Am 0 0 x x8 5 0 00 0 4 59 5 0 07 3 0 00 x 3 5

Also the second G in the bridge I think would be an F# which is 20020x

Ok so the comment section totally mucked up what I wrote
What I meant was Em - 0790080 C - x350050 G - 30040x Then Am 50050x and the F# in the bridge as 20020x
