Original of The Species - Really need help with piano

Me and some friends really want to perform this song.. but none of us are having much luck with the piano part of Original fo the Speices. The intro keyboard sound effects were easy like 5 notes or something but then it breaks out into piano which i am unable to write.

Anything is appreciated... v. desperate to be able to do this.

If you know chords, just play the same chords as for the guitar.

Thanks very much for the reply.
The guitar chords I have found look something like this (copied from another post) - but I'm still very confused as to how to play this on the piano... because if you just play the notes as they are listed.. it sounds like nothing. - I am not a very guitar/other instruments kinda person and so don't know much other then about piano.
Any help is greatly appreciated... thank you!

A E
Baby Slow Down
F#m C#m
The end is not as far as the start
A E
Please Stay A Child
F#m C#m
Somewhere in your heart .... baby
G D A
I give you everything you want
G D A
Except the thing that you want
Cm D A
You are the first one of your kind
Then Run Into Chorus String: B C D E
A F#m
And You Feel... Like no one before
C#m E
You Steal..... Right under my door

thanks again for the reply

I've just been twiddling about with it for the last 10mins but am failing how to see how to use it properly... any ideas or quick example?

A E
Baby Slow Down
F#m C#m

So make sure Chords is selected then click A.. then click E and play the notes that come up on the 'virtual piano' above?
Because that doensn't sound right (the actual music)

Blog... i am so coming off as an idiot... sorry for my dumbness...

Thank you very much if you can briefly explain this to me ))

Thanks..

Ok, in the right hand you will play this (notes only, not chords):

C# F# E B C# F# G# F# x2

That melody will be played in the 5th octave in a normal piano (i don't know what octave in a Keyboard, because they have less octaves)

At the same time you play the principal melody, you will play this notes with the left hand in the 2nd octave (in a normal piano):

A E F# C# x2 (the notes of the chords )

..........I don't know if you understand me but i tried to help you.

I forgot to tell you that you can play chords in the rest o the song, playing this notes between E and F#m:

A G# E

and playing this between C#m and A:

A G# C#

thanks for that... i'd already figured out the beginning intro bit... but not the left hand so thank you.
But what i was asking for was help with the piano bit... i.e.:

Bono: Baby slow down...
<Piano>
And this piano bit is repeated again at different sections of the song...

Bono: The end is not as far ... <PIANO starts> as the start
It plays throughout some of bono's singing... and am having great difficultly in trying to get it...

Thanks for your reply and thank you to anybody who can help
