For this song you will need to detune your guitar down 
1/2 a step:  eb bb gb db ab eb

The intro of the song is D and Dsus4 with the 
following riff played over the top it four times:

    D   Dsus4 D
e-----2-3--2----           X 4    

Then the first verse starts

G                   D        a
Arousing thunder I only ask it to stop

G               D         a
For a second so I could coax you to talk

  (There could be a very quick G in here, I'm not sure)  
Em  ^  D riff

Em             G              D riff
Think when we first layed eyes

        Em                        G                       D riff
Didn't know who you were and then I was one more passerby

             Em                      G                    D riff

About your dreams and orange soda tea leaves, tv,  more....more

(If you don't like all the changes above you can just strum the F#m 
the whole way though til 'more' but it doesn't sound as good)

Em               G              D riff
Looks like the rains holding off

Em              G           D riff
Might as well take this slow

         Em                            G                      D riff
You know sometimes when I hold you in silence I listen real close

Just what would it take to coax you to laugh? To laugh,   To laugh To laugh

Just play G over the following lines

What would it
What would it               D
What would it take you to laugh?

Repeat the above twice, then

I'm not too sure on the ending but I'll give it a go

G           Em
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

G           Em
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

G           Em       D

Then play D (plus the riff a few times) till
the end.
