Outro

SBmhe sits among the piD/Aeces of Bmbroken glass and photoD/Agraphs RBmeluctantly releaD/Ases the lastG of what was her pastF Comments : I hope that this transcription comes pretty close to the original recording. The D/A Chord can be also played as a Bm7/A Chord on the piano. But to make the song easier you can also go on and play a standard A Chord instead of the D/A Chord. Doesn't sound much different, but is quite a lot easier to play.

Outro

| Em - - - | Em - - - |Em - - - | Em -> Upstroke | Comments : If you play this song on a guitar only, then you should better play a standard G7 instead of the G7/D chord, because it's easier to play and sounds better this way, even though in the original recording the bass is playing a D at this part.

This is what I figured out to make it sound the best for me : The Em parts can be played like the following. The piano melody is built into this picking :
e |-0-------0-3-0---5-------7-------|-0-------0-3-0---5-------3-------|
b |-0---0---0-0-0---0---0---0---0---|-0---0---0-0-0---0---0---0---0---|

Play this two times during the Intro and repeat it through the Fills and the Outro. The fingerpicking through the rest of the song could be something like this :
