(The chords are not in the same pitch as the song.  
The song actually has a C, F, G progression.  
But I could not find a couple of the chords where 
it starts with "Or the magic in your hands...".  
So I decided to start with E instead)

     E A D G B E
  E: 0-2-2-1-0-0
  A: x-0-2-2-2-0
  B: x-2-4-4-4-2
F#m: 2-4-4-2-2-2
  C: x-3-2-0-1-0
  D: x-x-0-3-2-3

E              A     B
I guess you've heard

I guess you know

In time I'd have told you 

      B               E
But I guess I'm too slow

It's overly romantic 

      B              E
But I know that it's real

I hope you don't mind 
     B           E
If I say what I feel

     A                            B
It's like I'm in somebody else's dream

A                               B  
This could not be happening to me


E            F#m   A
But you were there

             B               E      F#m
And you were everything I've never seen

A           B            A                  E
You woke me up from this long and endless sleep

I was alone

  B                          E
I opened my eyes and you were there

      B                          E
Can I take your smile home with me

       C             D
Or the magic in your hands
  B                  A
I opened my eyes and no

I'm not alone

No, I'm not alone

  B                           E      A B E
I opened my eyes and you were there
