All the other chords or tabs for this song are pretty much correct,
but this is the exact way Conor plays the chords in the song.
I figured it out from watching him play it at a show.

C/G G FThe rain, it started tapping on the window near my bed. There was a loophole
G7 Aminin my dreaming, so I got out of it. And to my surprise my eyes were wide and
F D7 Dalready open. Just my nightstand and my dresser where those nightmares had
just been.
C/G G FSo I dressed myself and left them, out into the gray streets. But everything
G7 Aminseemed different and completely new to me. The sky, the trees,
F D7houses, buildings, even my own body. And each person I encountered, I
Dcouldn't wait to meet.
C/G G And I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said "there is
F G7nothing that I can do for you that you can't do for yourself." He said "Oh
Amin F D7yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that would help." So I sat with him
Da while and then I asked him how he felt.
F Emin Amin F Emin Amin F Emin AminHe said, "I think I'm cured. No, in fact, I'm sure. Thank you stranger, for
Gyour therapeutic smile."

C/G G FSo that is how I learned the lesson that everyone is alone. And your eyes
G7 Aminmust do some raining if you ever want to grow. But when crying don't help
F D7and you can't compose yourself, it's best to compose a poem, an honest verse
D of longing or a simple song of hope.
C/G GAnd that's why I'm singing, "Baby,don't worry, cause now I got your back.
FAnd every time you feel like crying,
G7 AminI'm gonna try and make you laugh. But if I can't, if it just hurts too bad,
F D7then we will wait for it to pass, and I will keep you company through those
D C/G Gdays so long and black. And we'll just keep working on the problem we know
F G7we'll never solve, of Love's uneven remainder, our lives are fractions of a
Amin Fwhole." But if the world could remain within a frame like a painting on a
D7 Dwall. Then I think we would see the beauty then. We would stand staring in
F Emin Amin F Emin Amin F Emin Aminat our still lives posed like a bowl of oranges, like a story told by the
G G7fault lines and the soil.
