As you can tell we're playing the same progression here throughout the verse and the chorus, but I just want to underline how the rhythm changes slightly here.

It becomes more rubato (which means that your time is going to shift and be determined by the bandleader or the conductor, in this case, the singer) and you start arpeggiating the chords just a little bit.

Doing this without dragging too much or fumbling over the changes can be a bit of a task in the beginning, but try to make this happen in the last verses and chorus.

The big lesson here is to follow along with the singer.
