There are two possible ways of playing this, and I'll tab both for completeness's sake.

This first version sounds much better, but is a little more difficult.

Tuning: E A D G C F (careful the high strings don't snap during tuning)

Chords:
Gm: 3(t)55300
C: x32000
Dm: 10(t) 12 12 10 00
F: 1(t)33200
Bb: 688700
C/E: 332000
G: 355400

Intro:
Gm C Dm F (x3)
Bb F C/E (x2)
Gm Bb F C (x4)

Dm                  Bb
When she was just a girl,
F                C
She expected the world,
       Dm                 Bb
But it flew away from her reach,
       F               C
So she ran away in her sleep.

           Gm        Bb
Dreamed of para-para-paradise,
F         C
Para-para-paradise,
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise,
F                         C
Every time she closed her eyes.

Gm Bb F C (x2)

Bb                  F(/A)
When she was just a girl,
F(/A)            C
She expected the world,
Bb                         Dm
But it flew away from her reach,
Dm                       C
And bullets catch in her teeth.

Gm
Life goes on,
   Bb
It gets so heavy,
    F                C
The wheel breaks the butterfly.
Gm            Bb
Every tear, a waterfall.

Bb                F
In the night, the stormy night,
               C
She closed her eyes.
       Bb         F
In the night, the stormy night,
         C
Away she flied.

               Gm        Bb
And dreamed of para-para-paradise,
F         C
Para-para-paradise,
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise,
F           C
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh. (x2)

Gm C Dm F (x4)

      Bb          C               F
Still lying underneath the stormy skies
         Bb          C
She said oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.
           F
I know the sun's set to rise.

               Gm        Bb
And dreamed of para-para-paradise,
F         C
Para-para-paradise,
Gm        Bb
Para-para-paradise,
F           C
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh. (x2)


Gm Bb F C (lots of times)

Bb F(/A) Am  Dm G Bb
