VERSES: Behind the strumming acoustic there is an electric:

        E-2/3----2/3----2/3----2/3-------------------------2/3----2/3----2/3----2/3----

CHORUS: 
          Em    E F                   G                   
        E-7---7-7-12---12---12---12---12---12---12---12----

        G-9-9-9-9------------------------------------------
        D--------------------------------------------------
        A--------------------------------------------------
        E--------------------------------------------------

Then another guitar joins and they play two different melodies: 
          A
        E----------------------------------
        B-----------12-14-15-12-12---------
        G---11-12-14-----------------------
        D-14-------------------------------
        A----------------------------------
        E----------------------------------

          A
        E-12-------------------------------
        B-----------------17B17-15-14-12---
        G-------------------------------14-
        D----------------------------------
        A----------------------------------
        E----------------------------------

PRE 2nc CHORUS: Just before the second chorus there is a little subtle 
background lick just after the words 'touch me': 
          G                   
        E-330--------------
        B----30------------
        G------4P2P0-4P2P0-
        D------------------
        A------------------
        E------------------

LAST 2 CHORDS: The last two chords of the song are 'A' to 'G'. The effect at the 
end is achieved by using a Les Paul style guitar and turning the top volume, for 
the neck pickup, off and then whilst holding the G flicking the toggle switch 
quickly. It helps if you stand next to a loud amp aswell, because then you get 
the feedback starting to creep in!!!

it's pretty hard to have the good rythme

it took me ages to find it, but i've finally found it, and my life is more complete because of it!

Another way that sounds good is to play instead of G, C9, G etc. for an intro play G, Gsus, G, Gsus (32OO13)
