Need to learn a song for my girlfriend

My girlfriend's favorite love song is 40 Days by blessthefall. I'm going to learn it for valentine's day for her (yeah yeah cheesy i know) but I'm having trouble on the lead guitar on the verses and the solo, i know there not really that hard but i don't seem to have the speed to pull it off right. I've been playing for about a year and was wondering if there was any exercises i could do to increase my speed, even if it is just for that one song.

I'm not a lead player, but the logical answer would be to practice the solo itself instead of waisting your time on exercises, as far as i know there's no magical formula to gain speed especially in your case (you've been playing for only a year and you have 15 days to get the tune) so just start very slowly till you memorize the solo and then increase the speed. Best of luck!
