The guitarist throws in a few subtle chord varitions,
which I've shown, the oddest is his maj7's in Verse 4,
not sure it really works myself, I'd stick to an A if 
you don't like those. With the add#11, he only appears
to throw this in once, whereas, on the album that's a
key figure on piano. His sus4's are pretty random too,
so just pick and choose which you want to use or not. 
You could play Verses 1 and 4 just like Verse 2,
which has the simplest chords.

[Verse 1]
E             Esus4  E             Esus4   E
   I let your love  in, I have the scar,
E             Esus4  E
   I felt the ra  - zor ...against my heart,
A            A5add#11  A                       E
   I thought   we     were ...both in all the way,
           B
But you caught it by the handle,
Asus2       B                     E   Esus4 E  Esus4 E
      And I ...caught it by the blade!


[Verse 2]
E
   You said, "Good - bye, ...it's not the end,
E
   And, if you need me, ...I'm still your friend"
A                                   E
   Well, that's easy ...for you to say,
             B
'Cause you caught it by the handle,
Asus2           B          E              E4  E
       And I caught it by ...the blade!


[Verse 3]
 C#m                 A            B              C#m
That's the risk you run when you love, when you love,
 B       C#m               A               B    B4 B
And you give it all you've ...got to give,
  C#m             A              B
Knowing all a - long there's a chance,
           C#m   B          C#m             A
There's a chance ...you'll reach, and they won't,
         B                        Bsus4  B
You'll bleed, and they ...don't!


[Verse 4]
E               Esus4  E                Esus4
   For you, it's o  - ver, for me, it's not,
E         Esus4  E
   I kept try - ing, and you just stopped,
Amaj7sus2  Amaj7                  Amaj7sus2  Amaj7
                 Now I know how...
                      E
...You can sound so brave,
             B
'Cause you caught it by the handle, baby,
Asus2         B          E           Esus4  E  Esus4  E
      And I caught it by ...the blade!


[Verse 5]
 C#m                 A            B              C#m
That's the risk you run when you love, when you love,
 B       C#m               A               B    Bsus4 B
And you give it all you've ...got to give,
  C#m             A              B
Knowing all a - long there's a chance,
           C#m   B          C#m              A
There's a chance ...you'll reach, and they won't,
         B                        Bsus4  B
You'll bleed, and they ...don't!

A                                        E
   I thought we were ...both in all the way,
           B                      Bsus4  B
But you caught it by the handle,
Asus2          B                    E     Esus4  E
       And I   ...caught it by the blade,
E   E4    E         B
   Humm -umm, you caught it by the handle, baby,
Asus2         B               E              Esus4 E   E
       And I  ...caught it by ...the blade!
