City Of Black And White Chords

One of my favorite songs on the album. And not too tough at all. Standard tuning, no capo.

The chords aren't full, though, so here's what I've come up with:
Em = 000220 (normal)
C = 010230 (normal)
G = 030023 / 000023
D = 032002 / 002002 / 030450 
As for the variations for G and D, you can just decide which one goes best for 
which part. But he is always playing the top E string open, so keep that in mind 
(all the chords listed have the E open).

[ Tab from: ]
Em                        C
This whole city's black and white
Tell me what is your color
         C         G        D
Could it be the same as mine?
Em                                       C
Faded greens and blue street lights
There's a red fire burning
       C     G        D
In the sea up to the sky.

I don't want to wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I'd feel the rest of my life
                   C                        G       D
You don't want a waste another minute to realize
Walking on the dark side of the evening
Baby it is you, that opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water
      C        G        D
The city of black and white.
               C         G      D
Won't you just stay?
               C         G      D
Won't you just stay?

The rest is all the same. For the breakdown, the same chords are used, just listen 
to find out the rhythms and which goes where.
