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-AmIs 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-AmIt 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-AmAnd 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-GBut you are, my love, the astronaut,
F-Am-Gflying in the face of science.
F-C-GI will gladly stay an afterthought;
F-Am-Gjust bring back some nice reminders.
Dm-Dsus2-F-G Dm-Dsus2-F-Dsus2-G (Verse)
F-G-AmIs 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-AmAnd 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-GBut you are, my love, the astronaut,
F-Am-Gflying in the face of science.
F-C-GI will gladly stay an afterthought;
F-Am-Gjust bring back some nice reminders.
Dm-Dsus2-F-G Dm-Dsus2-F-Dsus2-G (Bridge)
Dm-Dsus2-F-GI 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-GYes you are, my love, the astronaut,
F-Am-Gcrashing in the name of science.
F-C-GJust my luck they have the upper half,
F-Am-Git's a very nice reminder.
F-Am-GIt'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-AmAnd 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.
