You Could Be Happy by Snow Patrol

This is my first attempt ever at actually writing a chord chart so go easy on me.  
This song is actually played with a keyboard or xylophone, but you can pluck it or 
strum it however you feel comfortable.    If you want to play in key with the 
actual song, use a Capo on III.  I like to play the G on the 1st and 3rd verses like this:

e--3---|
B--3---|
G--4---|
D------|
A------|
E------|

And on the 2nd and 4th verse as a 6 string bar chord, naturally progressing from 
the F#m bar chord.   

Intro:  D  Dmaj7 G

             D          Dmaj7     G
You could be happy and I wonít know
                            D   Dmaj7	    G
But you werenít happy the day I watched you go
                          D      Dmaj7   G
And all the things that I wish I had not said
                            D       Dmaj7    G
All played in lips til itís madness in my head

                    Em          F#m      G
Is it too late to remind you of how we were?
                         Em       F#m         G
And not our last days of silence, scream, and blur?
                Em       F#m      G
Most of what I remember, makes me sure
                               Em      F#m       G
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

               D      Dmaj7    G	
You could be happy, I hope you are
                         D      Dmaj7 G
You made me happier than Iíve been by far
                     D     Dmaj7     G
Somehow everything I own, smells of you
                     D           Dmaj7   G
And for the tiniest moment, itís all not true

                       Em      F#m   G
Do the things that you always wanted to
                             Em         F#m        G
Without me there to hold you back, donít think just do
                      Em     F#m     G
More than anything I want to see you go
                  Em        F#m        G
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world

D  Dmaj7 G Ė fade to blackÖ.
