The verse section introduces a few new chords into the progression, while building towards the chorus. The first half of the verse is a simple IV, I progression, using the Bb and F chords (G and D shapes with the capo). You'll settle into a steady, relaxed strum, and also bring the dynamic down to lightly support the vocal.

The second half of the verse gets a bit busier with more chord changes, but all within the key of F. Note that the first half of the second verse has no vocals at all, so you can bring the dynamic up here a touch.

The second half of the 2nd verse adds a C chord to the progression for 2 bars, and a hanging strum halfway through to really highlight the lyric.
