CHORDS

        E-A-D-G-B-e     
G/A     x-0-5-4-3-x        As CPWKruger pointed out in the comments, 
A*      x-0-7-6-5-0        the G in the verses sounds good as a Gmaj7
A#dim7  x-1-2-0-2-0        (3-x-0-0-0-2) and the Gm might also be played
F#m/A#  x-1-x-3-2-2        as a Gm6 (3-x-0-3-3-0) for flavour.
Bm/A    x-0-4-4-3-2
G/D*    x-x-0-4-3-3
F/D*    x-x-0-5-6-5


I suggest the following voicings for the middle 8 to highlight the bass line.

Gm      x-x-5-3-3-3
Gm/F    x-x-3-3-3-3
C/E     x-x-2-0-1-0
C       x-3-2-0-1-0
F       x-x-3-2-1-1
F/E     x-x-2-2-1-1
F/D     x-x-0-2-1-1
F/C     x-3-x-2-1-1
C/D     x-x-0-0-1-0
D       x-x-0-2-3-2

VERSE
G                  Gm
  I'm not in love, so don't forget it
F#m           F#/A#           Bm           Bm/A
  It's just a silly phase I'm going through
G                  Gm
  And just because   I call you up,
F#m            F#/A#                     Bm           Bm/A
  Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
G                     A6         D   G/D*   F/D*   G/D*
  I'm not in love, no no, it's because ...


VERSE
G                    Gm
  I like to see you, but then again,
F#m            F#/A#              Bm           Bm/A
  That doesn't mean you mean that much to me
G                   Gm
  So if I call you, don't make a fuss,
F#m               F#/A#             Bm           Bm/A
  Don't tell your friends about the two of us
G                     A6         D   
I'm not in love, no no, it's because...


INTERLUDE (see above)


VERSE
G                     Gm
  I keep your picture   upon the wall
F#m          F#/A#              Bm           Bm/A
  It hides a nasty stain that's lying there
G                     Gm
  So don't you ask me   to give it back
F#m                  F#/A#             Bm           Bm/A
  I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me
G                     A6         D   
  I'm not in love, no no, it's because ...

Nice tab. To start the verses the boys play Gmaj7 followed by a Gm6, rather than just a G and a Gm.

@ CPWKruger
You may be right. There's a lot going on there: guitar, e-piano, harmonies etc. The straight chords I chose here are really just the basics. Depending on which part you want to highlight, different options are possible. Anyway, great song and thanks for the valuable input!
