The chorus is 8 bars plus 2 tags. There is a slight change in chord progression on bar 8.

I IV IV V
G C C D repeat 3x

I IV IV I
G C C * G 4th line

The melody and phrasing shift and lift to distinguish the chorus from the verse. Notice how the melody jumps up and begins to use shorter phrasing, with a very strong rhyme structure to the lyric (face, place, trace, ...)

FIRST ENDING 2 bar TAG

IV I IV I
C G C G tag - "I need you"


SECOND ENDING TO BRIDGE 5 bar TAG

IV I IV I
C G C G tag - "I need you"

The second chorus transitions to the bridge via a short 3 bar instrumental section:

I IV I IV I
G (stop) C G C G
