This is a great song, if a little depressing.. I'm pretty sure I've got this 
right, I can only think that theres a couple of variations you could play 
around with through the verse and prechorus which are similar to the outro, eg:

   Em            Cmaj7          Em            Cmaj7
E----------------------------|----------------------------|
B--------0-------------0-----|--------0-------------0-----|
G----------------------------|-------------------------0--|
D-----2-------------2--------|-----2-------------2--------|
A-------------2--3--------2--|-------------2--3-----------|
E--0-------------------------|--0-------------------------|
                                                           
   G6            Cmaj7          G6            Cmaj7        
E----------------------------|----------------------------|
B--------0-------------0-----|--------0-------------0-----|
G----------------------------|-------------------------0--|
D-----0-------------2--------|-----0-------------2--------|
A-------------2--3--------2--|-------------2--3-----------|
E--3-------------------------|--3-------------------------|

This isnt the same in every verse and it changes through each line as to 
what is actually played, so i havnt included in my tab. It sounds good 
without, but if you want to play about with it, the above should be a start 
for variation..

Feel free to comment; corrections and advice are welcome as i'd like to get 
it to a tee myself.

Thanks guys :)
