So just listen to the song to find when to change chords. When playing this song with the chords, I find it more "pleasing" when only playing the top four strings (E A D G). In addition to that, try to limit the amount of strums. The song doesn't involve too much guitar. The main star of the song is the bass drum and the baseline which is played an awful lot. This is true for most of the song, until the band builds up the song.
Call it Dmagic CAall it tErue I Acall it Dmagic When AI'm with Eyou And I Ajust got Dbroken Broken Ainto tEwo Still I Acall it Dmagic When I'm Anext to Eyou

Want to Dfall, fall so Efar I want to Dfall, fall so Ehard And I call it Dmagic And I call it Etrue I call it Dmagic E
This is where you start playing all six strings. The struming should become much more energetic and lively. There is no real way to strum this, just listen to the song and play what you feel. Continue playing D and E through the break. Now tone it down.
And if you were to Dask me After all that Awe've been Ethrough Still bAelieve in Dmagic? AYes, I Edo AYes, I Ddo AYes, I Edo AYes, I Ddo Of Acourse I Edo
Continue with the last progression and fade till the end. Hope this helps!
