Tuning: E A D G C F
Chords Used:
[Dm] [Bb] [F] [G/F] [G/C]  

(Intro) Dm Bb F G/F x2
[Dm] Come up to me[Bb]et ya, tell you I'm so[F]rry
You don't know h[G/F]ow lovely you are[Dm]
I had to find[Bb] you, tell you I nee[F]d ya
And tell you I s[G/F]et you apart[Dm]
Tell me your sec[Bb]rets, and nurse me your que[F]stions
Oh lets go b[G/F]ack to the start[Dm]
Running in cir[Bb]cles, coming in [F]tails
Heads on a s[G/F]cience apart
[Bb] Nobody said it was easy[F]
It's such a sha[G/F]me for us to part[Bb]
Nobody said it was easy[F]
No one ever s[G/F]aid it would be this hard[C]
Oh take me back to the start[F] [Bb] [F] [F] [Dm] [Bb] [F] [G/F]
I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart
And tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing tails
Coming back as we are
Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

The fourth chord is an Fsus2.

I see more problems.
The fourth chord "G/F" should be corrected to a C/G.
And the Dm in the end of every second line, is actually the start of the next line, according to the rythm of the song.

Hey guys, theres a slight problem with the chords here, its only minor, but makes a huge difference to the sound of the song. The Dm chord is actually Dm7- this is at all times.
