Please excuse if my notation is non-standard!
s = slide
p = pull-off
-14b(15)- = fret and pick 14th fret and bend to pitch of 15th fret

This is roughly how the acoustic guitar plays during the verses and solos.
(I've omitted writing some of the chords names above the lyrics for space):

During the intro and the first time after every chorus - play something like:

    Amaj7         G#m7          F#m9        F#m     B13     B7

Amaj7                  G#m7
  I could be discontent and chase the rainbows end
F#m9                        B13
  I might win much more but lose all that is mine
Amaj7             G#m7
  I could be a lot but I know I'm not
F#m9                        B6/7sus4              B7   
  I'm content just with the riches that you bring

Amaj7                G#m7
  I might shoot to win and commit the sin
F#m9                   B13
  Of wanting more than I've already got
Amaj7            G#m7
  I could runaway but I'd rather stay
F#m9                          B6/7sus4          
  In the warmth of your smile lighting up my day
      B7
  The one that makes me say, hey

F#                                         D#m7    D#m9 D#m7
  'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened
F#             D#m7   D#m9 D#m7
  To me or my world
F#                                  D#m7    D#m9 D#m7
  You're the best thing that ever happened
     C#m7      F#
  So don't go away

Amaj7 G#m F#m9 B13
Amaj7 G#m F#m9 B6/7sus4 B7

Amaj7             G#m7
  I might be a king and steal my peoples things
F#m9                      B13
  But I don't go for that power crazy way
Amaj7                 G#m7
  All that I could rule but I don't check for fools
F#m9                       B6/7sus4
  All that I need is to be left to live my way
      B7
  Say listen what I say

F#                                       D#m7     D#m9 D#m7

  You're the best thing that ever happened
     C#m7      F#
  So don't go away

Amaj7                G#m7
  I could chase around for nothing to be found
F#m9                         B13
  But why look for something that is never there
Amaj7                         G#m7
  I may get it wrong sometimes but I'll come back in style
F#m9                            B6/7sus4
  For I realise your love means more than anything
      B7
  The song you make me sing - yeah
