for some reason the spacing is too much between the chords 
but they are all in order but just not over the correct words on
each line.

About this song

"Only Hope" is a Switchfoot song written by Jon Foreman for their 1999 album New Way to Be Human. Despite not seeing a radio single release, it is one of Switchfoot's more popular songs, due to its inclusion and prominence in the 2002 film A Walk to Remember. It is also credited with helping bring Switchfoot to a mainstream audience and consequently sign to a major label. The song was notably covered by Mandy Moore for A Walk To Remember. Additionally, Switchfoot's version is played in toward the end of the film.
