I think you play riffs 1 and 2 a few times then, behind
the verses play:
   
                             (lyrics)
                          ...by your side
 C#m         G#m         C#m   C  D  E
  D D u D D   D D u D D   D D  D  D  D
e-6-----------6-----------6----0--2--0------
b-7-----------6-----------7----1--3--0------
g-8-%-%-%-%---6-%-%-%-%---8-%--0--2--1------
d-8-----------8-----------8----2--0--2------
a-6-----------8-----------6----3-----2------
E-------------6----------------------0------

  F#m   B    E    A
   D D  D D  D D  D D   (x2)
e--2----2----0----0----------**On the 2nd time, only strum
b--2----4----0----2----------the A chord down once, then 
g--2-%--4-%--1-%--2----------right after you strum it, go into
d--4----4----2----2----------riff 1**
a--4----2----2----0----------
E--2----2----0---------------

Interlude chords are mainly: C F Fm Am Dm G


Then that cool, slow ending:
                     C
                     D
e-------0------------0-----------------
b---1-3---3-1--------1-----------------
g-1-----------1------0-----------------
d--------------------2-----------------
a--------------------3-----------------
E--------------------------------------

Listen to the recording and you should get really good at playing
this song.  The alternate Riff 1 goes kinda fast, so it's kinda
tuff for a beginner.  You should use alternate (up,down pattern) 
picking for it.  E-mail me for comments or whatever.
