After "CHORUS 3" just strum the chord progression of the choruses over and over again until the end of the song. NOTE: This is a beautiful song - although there isn't a lick of guitar in the track, this arrangement should capture the essential sound and feel, especially on an acoustic. If "INTRO" makes no sense, just ignore it.
