Pretty straight forward song but the Gmaj7 and Asus2 chords may have eluded beginners 
when trying to work out this great track.
These 2 chords give it that airy, atmospheric vibe (that and half a ton of reverb!)
In the second half of the chorus try to emphasise that top note (F#) of the Gmaj7 chord. Enjoy!

   Gmaj7     A
Oh I,
             Gmaj7           A
How can I go on with it much further?
         Gmaj7                      A
I didnt think that it would go any further,
           Gmaj7                  A
But now it has and its making me nervous,
  Gmaj7       A
A wonderful motion,
        Gmaj7               A
That is carrying your every motion,
   Gmaj7           A
Oh I,
          Gmaj7              A
I think I might be losing my mind,

Verse
   Gmaj7      A
Oh I,     (Oh I)

I just did the undeniable order,
(order)
          Gmaj7         A
I hear it coming in the wire and coda
          Gmaj7      A
I hear it moving and calling the border,
    Gmaj7        A
And crossing the ocean,
     Gmaj7               A
And carrying your every notion

Oh I,     (Oh I)

I think I might be losing my mind,
