I think G instead of Bm works pretty well

It seems to me, that A7sus4 sounds not good.
I think should be D/G (second fret, second and third strings)

I'm not sure about the intro on this one, but the overall accuracy of this tab is great! Much better than the other version of this song!

About this song

Contrary to popular belief, this song is most likely not about lovers. Tim Rice-Oxley has said that the 'somewhere only we know' can be a great variety of things, and when writing the song, left it to be ambiguous, though he has thought of it as a sort of escape, such as a good memory or a favorite place. Rice-Oxley told The Daily Mirror "It's about being able to draw strength from a place or experience you've shared with someone. I think its an idea a lot of people can relate to."
