It’s pretty easy and quite complicated at the same time, cause there are lots of borrowed chords, meaning there are lots of chords that are not belong to the key of this song.
But i love the melody tho, sounded like a song from the 70's.

[Verse]
C
...I have a memory
     Dm                              C
Of a time and place where history resigned
C
Now my apology
        Dm                             C
All the light came in to fulminate my mind

[Refrain]
C
Reach out, reach out
   Bb/C
To all the ones who came before you
F 
 Ponder what is right
Dm
You and I, in defiance
C
Speak out, speak out
     Bb/C
The conversation may afford you
F
Wisdom of the wise
Dm 
You and I, in defiance...

[Interlude]
C      Dm

C    Bb/C    F
...............

[Pre-Chorus]
C                           Bb/C 
And I come from conscience where there is no conjugation
C                      Bb/C             F
...I would rather be a flower than the ocean
C                     Bb/C
And I held myself as something of an innovation
C                  Bb/C              F
I would rather be devoured than be broken

[Chorus]
C                      Dm
All my life I tried so hard
                        Em
To separate myself from all
                            Gm7    F
That is and was and will be torn apart
C                    Dm
You were running unafraid
                                Em
I know you, but I've changed my way
                          Gm7   F
You know I take it all to heart....

[Bridge]
F         Em                    G 
Home is where you've called my name
F            Em                  G  
I've gone as far as the eye can blame
F         Em                    G 
You said love may have lost its way

[Chorus]
C                    Dm
Now my life has been erased
                            Em
And what I gave, I gave for you
                           Gm7   F
And for myself and for the holy name
C                    Dm
You were running unashamed
                            Em
And yours is mine and all remains
                          Gm7   F
As nothing ever stays the same.....

[Post-Chorus]
C                       Bb/C
Reach out, reach out to all the ones who came before you
 G                       F
Reach out, reach out to all the ones who came before you
C                        Bb/C
Reach out, reach out and all at once the pain restores you
G                        F                Em
Reach out, reach out and all at once the pain restores you
Bb              Am            C
All at once the pain restores you

[Outro]
C                    Dm                              C
I have a memory of a time and place where history resigned
C
Now in my reverie
         Dm                              C
For the guiding light that opened up my mind
