The chords in the verses I think are simpler, example first line verse1:
Bb
(By the) way that you look, I can see you're the best

I tried playing the song again without the Ab and I think you are right. The vocals seem to travel up and down from Bb to Ab and back, but I think this vocal change is being done over a continuous Bb. If you agree let me know and I will edit appropriately.
