             It's my own design,
                            D   G
             It's my own remorse,
                           D   G
             Help me to decide,

             Help me make the...


             [Chorus 2]

             Em              F#m
          ...most of freedom and of pleasure,
             G            F#m
             Nothing ever lasts for ever

           G                          D           A        G
             There's a room where the light won't find you,
                                     D            A            G
             Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down,
                                  D       A
             When they do I'll be right behind you.


             [Chorus 3]
 
             Em            F#m
             So glad we've almost made it,
           G             F#m
             So sad they had to fade it,
             Em   F#m  G        A
             Everybody wants to rule the world.


             [Solo]

             (although diferent from the song you can just keep playing the
             D to G progession from the intro and verses five or so times to
             take the place of the solo) then:


            [Verse 5]

            Em                 F#m
            I can't stand this indecision,
            G               F#m
            Married with a lack of vision,
            Em   F#m  G        A               (G)
            Everybody wants to rule the world.


            [Chorus 5]

            G               F#m
            Say that you'll never never never never need it,
          G              F#m   
            One headline why believe it?,
            Em   F#m  G        A
            Everybody wants to rule the world.


            [Solo 2]

            (Again slightly different from the song but just repeat the 
             D to G progression a few times) then: 

 
            [Chorus 6]

            Em              F#m
            All for freedom and for pleasure,
            G            F#m
            Nothing ever lasts for ever,
            Em   F#m  G        A           D    G
            Everybody wants to rule the world


            [Outro]

            D   G      | D   G    to fade (or end on G)

elektikeegle is right on with the Dmaj7. And with a capo on 2 you can transpose the song to help your guitar friends play w/easier chords. The F#m would be a Em.
