Right - at about 3:27 on the Cd, there is a break. Matt picks the strings
like this. Its never all picking , sometimes he strums parts of it,
particularly the Em and C. Listen the the Cd to hear what I mean
 
   G                F/C   Em7	   Cadd9
E  3 --------------1-------- 0--- --------------------------
A -------------------------------- -----3------------------
D ---0---------------0-------2----------2-----------------
G ----0---------------0-------0----------0----------------
B -----3 (let ring)-----1-------1----------3---------------
E --------------------------------------------------------

Alternate between the picking and strumming at will!

So the chords for the break at 3:27 go like this.

G             F/C           Em7            Cadd9
					 (I'm in Lo----ve)
                      G            F/C       Em7         Caad9
I'm so in love with you               ooh yeah            Jesus I'm in love
               G     F/C     Em7      caad9    
I love you Lord    
        G     F/C     Em7      caad9
(NOTE:- no definite lyrics here - just beautiful layered  voices)

    G        F/C    Em      C
And I'll stand in awe of you
   G        F/C    Em      C
Yes I'll stand in awe of you
         G        F/C    Em      C
Yes I'll stand in awe of you
         G        F/C    Em      C
Yes I'll stand in awe of you

          Am7    Em       Caad9
And I'll let my words be few
Am7    Em   Caad9 D         Caad9        G
 Jesus I am so in love with you

Am7   Em   Caad9 D         G
Jesus I am so in love with you

(Same pick pattern as before)

G           F/C          Em7        Caad9
						   So in Love with you
G           F/C          Em7        Caad9    
(The voices return!)
G           F/C          Em7        Caad9    
          Am7    Em       Caad9
And I'll let my words be few
Am7    Em   Caad9 D         G  (Pick pattern again!) 
Jesus I am so in love with you


The end pick pattern is slightly  different!

E-3----------1--------0-----------3
A---------------------------3-----2
D--0-----------0--------2----2----0
G---0-----------0--------0----0---0
B----3-----------3--------3----3--3
E---------------------------------3
As you can see I have really changed that much from Chris P's version,
except for 2 obvious things. Firstly, on the album there is a bass ascend
on the first G - up to Eb. This is not played on the guitar but on a piano,
but play the chord I have written and It sounds alright. Secondly, listening
to the chorus, there is definitely  an F in there. I reckon there are 2
guitars, one playing the F/C and the other playing the C. But that's just
my opinion....
