Most difficult part is the strum pattern when you come to the parts of the song where you strum the entire chord, unless you have the ear for it its pretty easy mode. It's pretty much mimicking the piano cover and their accents on the chords of the guitar. (Down, up, down, UP) then (up, down, UP) then with no accent (up, down, up) HOW TO PLAY VERSE CHORDS

-Right after the ending of the verse and following up to the chorus, go up the neck to the 5th 7th and 8th fret with the same chord position right after the chord on the 3rd or the F (this is just going to be a simple progression), then sing the first few words then follow in with these chords. The Em is just replacement of the Am. HOW TO PALY CHORUS Variation chords or (Var.)
F variation      G variation     Em

VERSE (Guy only)
CAm
I remember what you wore on the first day

F
You came into my life and I thought hey
   G 
You know this could be something

  C        
Cause everything you do and words you say
  Am
You know that it all takes my breath away
 F         G              (chord progression up to the 8th fret)
And I am left with nothing
CHORUS (Duet)
              F(var.)
So maybe its true
              G(var.)
That I cant live without you
       F                  G
Maybe two is better than one
                 F(var.)
There's so much time
     G(var.)
To figure out the rest of my life
 Em                     G(var.)     F(var.)
And you've already got me coming undone
             Em       G(var.)   (normal 5th fret chord position with no variation)
I'm thinking two is better than one
VERSE 2 (Girl only)
 C                                Am
I remember every look upon your face

The way you roll your eyes
             F
The way you taste
              G                C
You make it hard for breathing
 C
Cause when i close my eyes and drift away
 Am
I think of you and everything's okay
 F           G             Am (5th fret chord position)
I'm finally now believing
CHORUS (Duet)
                 F(var.)
Then maybe its true
              G(var.)
That I cant live without you
       F(var.)           G(var.)
Maybe two is better than one
                 F(var.)
There's so much time
     G(var.)
To figure out the rest of my life
 Am                     G(var.)    F(var.)
And you've already got me coming undone
             Am       G(var.)    F(var.)
I'm thinking two is better than one
BRIDGE (Guy only)
C - Am - F - G

C                                         Am
I remember what you wore on the first day

You came into my life
                F
And I thought hey
OUTRO (Duet) and all these chords are played as the variations except the Am,Em, and C
              F 
And maybe it's true
              G                
That I cant live without you
       F                  G

There's so much time

To figure out the rest of my life
              Am        G           F       
And you've already got me coming undone
          G            F    
And I'm thinking oooooohhhh
      G                         
That I cant live without you
             F                  G    
Cause maybe two is better than one
                     F

To figure out the rest of my life
            Em           
But I've figured out
      G                F    
When all is said and done
 Am      G          F     Am    
Two is better than one
 F       G          C        
Two is better than one.
