it sounds better if you play the second chord of the verse and pre-chorus one string higher.

D-----5-------7-------7-------9------------------------------
A-----5-------5-------7-------9------------------------------
E-----3---------------5-------7------------------------------

see if you like it and let me know

Thanks for tip. Building on that, it would also sound better if you ended on E (a string higher), instead of that B.
