Can anyone help me figure out the chords to "Broken Hallelujah" by The Afters? I have figured out the chorus and half of these verses, I think. It is in the key of D. Please and thanks a lot!!!

                       THE AFTERS


INTRO:  D Bm A G D


VERSE:
D
 I can barely stand right now.
Bm
  Everything is crashing down,
A               G           D
 And I wonder where You are.


VERSE:
D
 I try to find the words to pray.
Bm
  I don't always know what to say,
A                              G           D
 But You're the one that can hear my heart.


PRE-CHORUS:
G                        A                  Bm
And even though I don't know what Your plan is,
                              A
I know You're making beauty from these ashes.


CHORUS:
D                  
I've seen joy and I've seen pain.
A               
On my knees, I call Your name.
Bm                     G
Here's my broken hallelujah.
      D               
With nothing left to hold onto,
    A                
I raise these empty hands to You.
Bm                   
Here's my broken, 
G                      D
Here's my broken hallelujah.

Here's my broken hallelujah.


VERSE:
D  
 You know the things that have brought me here.
Bm
  You know the story of every tear.
A                                  G         D
‘Cause You've been here from the very start.


PRE-CHORUS:
G                        A                  Bm

                              A
I know You're making beauty from these ashes.


CHORUS:
D                  
I've seen joy and I've seen pain.

On my knees, I call Your name.

I raise these empty hands to You.

Here's my broken

Here's my broken hallelujah.


OUTRO:
             D      A
When all is taken away, 
              D         Bm
Don't let my heart be changed.
          G               D  
Let me always sing Hallelujah
            A
And when I feel afraid,

Thanks for the corrections..... appreciate it... When the tab is accepted I will then incorporate them.... Better to do it after it has been approved then before.. Again, thanks for the corrections


BY THE WAY, I THINK I MAY ADD THIS FOR THE INTRO AS WELL.... EVEN THOUGH IT IS PLAYED BY PIANO

Thanks everyone! I was pretty close. The only chord I was missing was the G chord.
