These are the chords being used and the fingerings for those chords. F# = g(3) C(1) E(2) A(1)
Verse:
| D#m - - F# - - | B - - - - - | D#m - - F# - - | B - - - - - |
| D#m - - F# - - | B - - - - - | C#sus4 - - - - - | C#sus4 - - - - - |

Chorus:

| D#m - - F# - - | B - - C# - - | D#m - - F# - - | B - - C# - - |
| D#m - - F# - - | B - - C# - - | D#m - - F# - - | B - - C# - - |

The above show the chords used for the verses and the chorus as well.
