Once again, what you're seeing is drastically over-chorded, especially if all you're doing is accompanying a vocal. The objective is to offer ways to embellish an instrumental solo when there is no vocal. Even then, I'm sure no guitarist in their right mind would attempt such a "one chord for every syllable" arrangement, especially on a song as pensive as this -- but if you DO feel inclined to change chords at any point, the chords I've indicated will support the melody line clearly enough that the listener will benefit.
