Right, this song has the piano as the main instrument, so the guitar is mainly rhythm 
Off we go.

EDIT: Sorted the piano riff, thanks to mambomonkey :)

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

Piano verse (same chords as verse below)

When the guitar comes in, it goes like this.
Verse (The rhythm's quite jazzy, listen to the song):
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------4444-------------------------------|
G|----5----5----7777----5----5----5555-5555----5----5----7777----5----5---|
D|-55-5-55-5----7777-55-5-55-5----5555-5555-55-5-55-5----7777-55-5-55-5-5-|
A|-55-3-55-3-x4-5555-55-3-55-3-x2-3333-3333-55-3-55-3-x2-5555-55-3-55-3-5-|
E|-33---33-----------33---33----------------33---33-----------33---33---3-|

Chorus:
e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|-5~--------7777---------5555-------|
D|-5~---5555-7777-5-7-8-9-5555-5555--|
A|-3~---5555-5555-5-7-8-9-3333-5555--|
E|------3333------3-5-6-7------3333--|

The next bit of the chorus contains a simple guitar part and a piano riff that can be 
on guitar.
Guitar part (listen for the rhythm):
e|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11--|
D|--------------------------|
A|-9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---|
E|--------------------------|

Piano riff (This should be right, according to mambomonkey):
e|----7-----7----7------------7---7---7---7--------7----7-----|
B|----10----9----7------------10--10--10--10-------9----7-----|
G|----8-----8----8------------8---8---8---8--------8----8-----|
D|----7-----7----7------------7---7---7---7--------7----7-----|x2
A|----9-----9----9------------9---9---9---9--------9----9-----|
E|----7-----7----7------------7---7---7---7--------7----7-----|

Play the beginning of verse a couple of times

I think this bit

piano riff (this might not be right, I'm not sure):
e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|-11-9-7----11111111-9-7--|
D|-------------------------| x2
A|-9--7-5----9-9-9-9--7-5--|
E|-------------------------|


Is actually

e|----7-----7----7------------7---7---7---7--------7----7-----|
B|----10----9----7------- ----10--10--10--10--- ---9----7-----|
G|-- -8- ----8----8------------8---8---8---8-- -----8----8-----|
D|-- -7-----7----7---- --------7---7---7---7-- -----7----7-----|x2
A|-- -9-- ---9----9------------9---9---9---9---- ---9----9-----|
E|----7-----7----7--- ---------7---7---7---7-- -----7----7-----|

I think

Just move your pinky around the bar chord

Hope this helps :)
