Paper House
Might not be 100% accurate, same as Sea Song. But it's a start.
any questions trattenuto@gmail.com
I do most of my chord transcriptions using the Piano, so the root notes in chords like 
Db/F might not sound equally good on guitar. You can just use Db and it will sound good anyway.

Intro: Ab Fm

Ab                Fm
We landed our heavy hearts
 Ab          Fm
motors with broken parts
Bbm                Db
we had a deck of cards
          Ab       Fm
it was a start

We'd sit out in the sun
and wait for our skin to turn
you would ask for truth
and I'd look for something to burn

Gb                    Db/F                Fm
  Oh, we walked in a hallowed place back then
                       Gb
on the edge of Dublin, the edge of May and June
                  Db/F         Fm
Oh, to live in a paper house again
         Gb           Db/F         Ab        Fm
where we grew by the light of the moon, oh

Often we took the train
the sky pacing white to gray
when you or I would leave
and the other would stay

And we were all that we had
and breathed in each others words
I would ask for truth
and you'd look for something to burn

Oh, we walked in a hallowed place back then
on the edge of Dublin, the edge of May and June
Oh, to live in a paper house again
where we grew by the light of the moon

You were much younger then
younger than I am now
I still keep as much an eye as the wires allow
I still keep as much an eye as the wires allow

Oh, we walked in a hallowed place back then
on the edge of Dublin, the edge of May and June
Oh, to live in a paper house again
where we grew by the light of the moon

Oh, you know what you are to me
and you know you will always be

Note:

Lisa plays this with a Capo on the first Fret, so the chords, for quick reference would be:

G Em (verse)
Am C (last part of the verse)
F C Em F (Chorus)
F C (last part of the chorus)
G Em (verse again)
