During the choruses, guitar 1 plays the above part, with minor

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?
