VERSE1:
Verse notes:
The second Am(maj7) might be an easier transition from the Fm(maj7) because 
you're just sliding the voicing down to the 1st fret. Just a suggestion...

  Ain't you heard,           that's how they do it?
         G#mb5                    Am(maj7)
You're a poem when you're on your own

I'll try   not to get in your way
       G                           C

You're a sad little tune by yourself

So lovely I wanna sing along
           G                      C

A few chord corrections:
Intro, after the E:
F/G 3x3210
G6/7 3x3000

Later, instead of G#mb5 x564xx it should be:

Dbdim6 x4535x

The Fmaj9 and G7/6 sound OK in the INTRO, however, I disagree with the Dbdim. The chord that Sondre plays doesn't sound diminished to my ear. I was never 100% happy with the G#mb5 chord but I think it sounds closer.
