Black Balloon

Goo Goo Dolls

 CF
 Baby's Black balloon makes me fly
 CF
 I almost fell into that hole in your life
 CF
 And you're not thinking about tomorrow
 AmBmC
 'Cause you were the same as me
 FDF
 But on your knees 
 CF
 A thousand other boys could never reach you
 CF
 How could I have been the one
 CF
 I saw the world spin beneath you
 AmBmC
 And scatter like ice from the spoon
 FGF
 That was your womb 
CHORUS:
 AmGFC
 Comin' down the world turned over
 AmGFC
And angels fall without you there
 AmGFC
And I go on as you get colder
 AmGC
Or are you someone's prayer
 CF
 You know the lies they always told you
 CF
 And the love you never knew
 CF
 What's the things they never showed you
 AmBmC
That swallowed the light from the sun
 FGF
 Inside your room 
Chorus
And there you have it. It's fairly simple, so you shouldn't have much trouble. Just listen to the song to see for real how it goes.

I really like what you've done here.  Very easy to follow and easy to play (and still sound professional).  Few fixes though. Make sure to put a capo on first fret, unless you'd like to transpose up one half-step to play in Db.  Second, I can see why one would play a Bm chord during the latter part of the verse after the Am.  The D in the voice part IS present in the Bm chord.  However the chord in the music overall sounds major, which leads me to believe that every Bm written here should be a G, which also has a voiced note of D, or another form of G with lower tones.  Lastly, that D in the first bridge should still be a G as well, also possibly with lower tones. Maybe add chords for the instrumental and what follows it and this should be ready to pick up and play anytime.
