Quite easy. Just listen to the song, it hasn?t even got a bridge or solo, so everythings repeating.. 

Verse: Bm7 / F#sus4 / D / Em7 

Chorus: D / Bm7 (x3) 
	  Dmaj7
	  
Bm  

Bm *guitar break*
So hold your head, and hold your tongue

But only say what you have to

Bm7      F#sus4         D
And as a child yes I dreamed

           Em7                 Bm7
Of holding her in the silver screen

             F#sus4              D
She loved her man but loved him twice

           Em7              Bm7
I wish I'd been that passenger

      F#sus4       D
Having fun, fly my kite

             Em7                   Bm7
The devil inside won't control my life

          F#sus4          D
Too much love, so little hate

             Em7                   Bm7
The devil inside won't control my fate


        D             Bm7
Oh, if only, if only

         D               Bm7
Oh, he wasn't so lonely

           D                    Bm7
He'd have someone to play with

            maj7
Instead of bombing our neighbours

Bm7     F#m7   D   Em7
Yeah, yeah...


(verse chords:)
 
So here I go to see the world

With my eyes and with my soul

And too much love, so little hate

The devil inside won't control my fate


(Chorus chords:)

Oh, if only, if only

Oh, he wasn't so lonely

He'd have someone to play with

Instead of bombing our neighbours

Dm      
Yeah, yeah...

Dm7
Yeah!


Bm *guitar breakes again*
So hold your head and run my time

The what of life no man can rhyme 

Bm7       etc. (verse)
So here we are and here we bleed

To be a victim there's no need

Having fun, I never fight

The devil inside controls my life

Too much love so little hate

The devil inside controls my fate


(Chorus 2x)

Oh, if only, if only

Oh, he wasn't so lonely

He'd have someone to play with
                                   
Instead of bombing our neighbours


Oh, if only, if only

Oh, he wasn't so lonely

He'd have someone to play with
                                                        
Instead of bombing our neighbours
