This song is really good. It's amazing that Creed actually wrote a 'love' ballad. Great lyrics and guitar throughout the whole song! 
All I have to say is that they are back and won't stop now!! 
I have compiled this tab from other tabs online and my own work. 
Like usual I will update the tab as I figure out better ways to play it or to get it closer to the way he plays it. The tuning is just like regular Drop D but the high E string is tuned to D also. Get a tuner to do this. I was thinking it was in DADADD tuning (which it might be) but this tuning seems more accurate. 

Notes - 

Intro - Play this with your fingers, it sounds like he uses a delay effect. 

Verse - The is last chords the Bm and the G abr chord are strummed. 

Chorus - Listen to the song real good for the timing of how o play the chords. 

Bridge  Easy octave riffs

Other - The clean chorus after the bridge is played with a phase shifter I                                                                                                                                 
        THINK. The rest is pretty simple to figure out.

Lyrics - 
Hello my friend we meet again 
It's been a while where should we begin...
Feels like forever. 
Within my heart are memories... 
Of perfect love that you taught me... 
I remember... 

When you are with me... 
I'm Free...
I'm Careless... 
I Believe. 
Above all the others...
We'll fly... 
This brings tears...
To my eyes... 
My sacrifice... 

We've seen our share of ups and downs. 
Oh...how quickly life can turn around...
In an instant. 
It feels so good to reunite... 
With yourself and with your mind... 
Let's find peace there... 

When you are with me... 
I'm Free...
I'm Careless... 
I Believe. 
Above all the others...
We'll fly... 
This brings tears...
To my eyes... 
My sacrifice... 

I just want to say hello again
