VERSE:

               Gsus2/B
I work in the dead of night
       
          Gsus2
When the roads are quiet

      Bm(add9)
No one is around

       A (add9)
To track my moves



            Gsus2/B
Racing the yellow lights

            Gsus2
To find the gate is open

              Bm(add9)
Shes waiting in the room

           A(add9)
i just step on through.



PRE-CHORUS:

         Gsus/B                    Bm(add9) A(add9)
        O whoa whoa whoa whoa...  O whoa whoa whoa whoa

Gsus/B         Bm(add9)        A(add9)             Gsus/B
        You get in, You get done, and then you get gone

                 Bm(add9)         A(add9)                Gsus/B
        You never leave a trace or show your face you get gone

                      Bm(add9)          A(add9)           G(add9)
        You should have turned around and left before the sun came up again

                    A(add9)
        But the sun came up again



CHORUS:

 Bm(add9)    Gsus2/B       Gsus2          C9/C7b9
I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen

 Bm(add9)    Gsus2/B       Gsus2          C9/C7b9
I'd steel your heart before you ever heard a thing  

 Bm(add9)    Gsus2/B       Gsus2     C9/C7b9
I'm an assassin and I had a job to do

 Bm(add9)    Gsus2/B       Gsus2             C9      G     C9/C7b9
Little did I know that girl was an assassin too...

You've got the right chords but I play the intro differently:
Gsus2/B -> Gsus2 -> Gsus2/B -> A(add9)

What you call Gsus2/B might be a Bm so the root chord progression would be:
Bm > G > Bm > A

which sounds right

Almost correct.

The chord progression of the verse is:

Em7 Gadd9(?) Bmadd9 Aadd9
-x----x-------x-------x--
-x----x-------x-------x--
-7----2-------7-------6--
-9----5-------11------9--
-7----2-------9-------7--
-0----3-------7-------5--

Prechorus: |Em7|Bmadd9 Aadd9| x3
|Gadd9|Aadd9|

Chorus: |Bmadd9 Em7|Gadd9 F#7b5|


I'm positively sure that's how he plays it on the berklee recording.
