Go back to the top of the [VERSE] section for the second and third verses - note that the Am7
fingerpicking part will be longer in the 2nd verse than it was in the 1st verse.

2nd verse - Hold the Am7 until the end of "...it's a miracle I can see"
3rd verse - Hold the Am7 until the end of "...to judge what I have done"

Then go back to the top of the [VERSE] section and play the 4th verse.

[CHORUS]
This part is a bit hard to understand, I'd recommend following along with the music.
    C        G        D        G        G        G        Em       D        D

                                        "...know I like it but what does that prove..."

    Cmaj7    Cmaj7    Cmaj7    Cmaj7    G        G        D        G

                                    "...sometimes I worry I don't know how to love you."

[SOLO]
I haven't figured out the solo yet.
I believe the background rhythm is from the [VERSE] section.
Now go back to the [VERSE] section... then to the [CHORUS] again
Then song ends with the [INTRO] riff, then G-C-G chords strummed.

going along with the video, the last note in the first bar of the intro on the G string should be open, not on the second fret
