[Verse] 
[C]You always[G] know where you can fin[Fmaj7]d me
[C]Iā??m up here where t[G]he air is pure [Fmaj7]and true
[C]The cleverness of[G] words just bind[Fmaj7]s me
[C]They won't[G] help me to get ove[Fmaj7]r you[C/B]
[Cborus] 
[Am]And maybe you got [D/F#]lost at the five ways
[G]Took a wrong[Em] turn just like always
[Am]Or did you just [D/F#]take the long way ho[G]me?[C/G] [G7]
[Verse] 
[C]I hear the wind blow[G] through the pin[Fmaj7]e trees
[C]I watch the[G] frozen lights come int[Fmaj7]o view
[C]The stars[G] above they don't alig[Fmaj7]n me
[C]They only[G] shine a dim light o[Fmaj7]n you[C/B]
[Cborus] 
[Am]And maybe you got [D/F#]lost at the five ways

[Cborus] 
[Am]And could it [D/F#]be that you don't love me
[G]For who I[Em] am or what I could be
[Am]And from where I [D/F#]am it's such a long way do[G]wn[C/G] [G7]

Note II:
Chords differ from version to version. But this is the jist of it.
There's also version with capo 4th fret.
Intro riff also differs depending on the version (one guitar, two guitars).
This is my suggestion for one guitar (incorporate with strumming):
 
 e|--0--------0--1--3--------0--------------------|
 B|--1--1--3--------0--------1-----0--1--3/5------|
 G|--0--------------0--------2--2-----------------|
 D|--2--------------0--------3--------------------|
 A|--3--------------2--------3--------------------|
 E|--x--------------3--------x--------------------|
 e|--0--------0--1--3--------0--------------------|
 B|--1--1--3--------0--------1--------------------|
 G|--0--------------0--------2--------------------|
 D|--2--------------0--------3--------------------|
 A|--3--------------2--------3--------------------|
 E|--x--------------3--------x--------------------|
