During the choruses, guitar 1 plays the above part, with minor
variation.
Guitar 2 roughly doubles guitar 1's part during the first chorus.

Verse: (Guitar 2 tacet)
Well I'm all messed
That's nothing new
Hey monkey, when you open up your blue eyes
I don't know if I'm wide awake or dreaming
But all I ever need is everything
* (w/ fill 1)
Hey monkey, where you been?
* (w/ fill 2)
This lonely spiral I've been in
* (w/ fill 3)
Hey monkey, when can we begin?
Hey monkey, where you been?

Verse:
(Guitars tacet)
Got nowhere but home to go
* (both guitars enter with the E chord)
Got Ben Folds on my radio right now
(Right here, the guitars switch channels;
gtr. 1 is now right panned, gtr. 2 is now left)

(Guitar 1 plays only the chords now, guitar 2 plays the part below)
I'm in trouble for the things I need
Hey monkey don't you want to be needed too?

Chorus:
(Played exactly like the second chorus, with the fills in gtr. 2)

Hey monkey, where you been?
This lonely spiral I've been in
Hey monkey, when can we begin?

Hey monkey, where you been?
Hey monkey, where you been?
