Really really simple song. I've never seen a correct tab for it though, so I thought I'd 
it myself.

Standard tuning.
Walk up from Em to G in the chorus.


Intro: G
                         C            G
and we have fun – we go laughing and running
            D                   Am  C
down to the water, there by the sea
          G         C             G
where the body just floats like a rowboat
         D                         Am         C
and the moon’s like a harbor light lit in this sky

          Em                        G
and this picture’s got a woman who looks like you
      D                       Am           C
and a guy who looks just like someone I’ve seen
        G             C            G
when it turns out - I hope that it turns out
               D             C            G
I hope that it turns out the way that you dreamed

C G
            C               G
embarcadero train station’s empty
      D              Am        C
and I just cannot believe how long it takes
G           C                G
all the way home through the city
               D                               Am               C
and everyone’s looking - least, it’s nice to believe everyone’s looking

     Em                        G
this picture’s got a woman who looks like you
      D                       Am           C
and a guy who looks just like someone I’ve seen
        G             C            G
when it turns out, I hope that it turns out
               D             C            G
I hope that it turns out the way that you dreamed

C G
                     C          G
ghostly faces at my living-room window
             D                        Am           C
they are not scared of me 'cause they know I can’t hurt them
     G            C           G
they press up and see, in the lamp-glow
           D                   Am      C
all of the hurt and the love inside of me

           Em       C
it’s their final duty
   Em                C
to see right through me
       Em             D
twelve hours 'til the dawn
          Am          D
but we’ve got to hold on, hold on to me...
                 G
because we’ll be running

C G D Am C
G C G D Am C

G           C          G
down to the water this morning
             D                   Am   C
well, nobody waits for you to believe
   G              C            G
in ghosts, lit by moonlight or dawning
           D          C       G
or in this picture of you and me
