Tuning: Standard

I couldn't find an accurate tab for this song so I decided to make my own.  It's as 
as I could get it; obviously not all the flourishes are here but if you listen to the song 
easy to figure out.  Enjoy!

(Intro)
Dm-Dsus2-F-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-Dsus2-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-G

(Verse)
F-G-Am
Is it enough to have some love,
small enough to slip inside a book,
small enough to cover with your hand,
because everyone around you wants to look?

F-G-Am
It is enough to have some love,
small enough to fit inside the cracks?
The pieces don't fit together so good
with all the breaking and all the gluing back.

F-G-Am
And I am still not getting what I want.
I want to touch the back of your right arm.
I wish you could remind me who I was
because every day I'm a little further off.

(Chorus)
F-C-G
But you are, my love, the astronaut,
F-Am-G
flying in the face of science.
F-C-G
I will gladly stay an afterthought;
F-Am-G
just bring back some nice reminders.

Dm-Dsus2-F-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-Dsus2-G

(Verse)
F-G-Am
Is it getting harder to pretend
that life goes on without you in the wake?
And can you see the means without the end
in the random frantic action that we take?

F-G-Am
And is it getting easy not to care
despite the many rings around your name?
It isn't funny and it isn't fair;
you've traveled all this way and it's the same.

(Chorus)
F-C-G
But you are, my love, the astronaut,
F-Am-G
flying in the face of science.
F-C-G
I will gladly stay an afterthought;
F-Am-G
just bring back some nice reminders.

Dm-Dsus2-F-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-Dsus2-G

(Bridge)
Dm-Dsus2-F-G
I would tell them anything to see you split the evening,
but as you see I do not have an awful lot to tell.
Everybody's sick for something that they can find fascinating;
everyone but you and even you aren't feeling well.

F-C-G
F-Am-G
F-C-G
F-Am-G

(Chorus)
F-C-G
Yes you are, my love, the astronaut,
F-Am-G
crashing in the name of science.
F-C-G
Just my luck they have the upper half,
F-Am-G
it's a very nice reminder.
F-Am-G
It's a very nice reminder.

Dm-Dsus2-F-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-Dsus2-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-G
Dm-Dsus2-F-G

(Verse)
F-G-Am
And you may be acquainted with the night,
but I have seen the darkness in the day,
and you must know it's a terrifying sight,
because you and I are living the same way.
