F#m7(11) is the best way I can describe the chord used throughout,
it's laid out: x42200, though I don't usually hit that high E either.

F#m7(11): x42200

Intro: |F#m7(11) | F#m7(11) | F#m7(11) | F#m7(11) E |

Meanwhile, another guitar (maybe 12-string) hammers on a F#m7 high
up on the fretboard, an Am7 shape at the 9th fret.

Keep playing intro over verse:

Eva Luna, dressed down in a winter coat
[Did] turn your ear
Talking backwards, words written in a sullen tone
Short and sincere

Light hits to Brigadoon
Stolen interlude
Torn and battered, pinned and shattered
Spotlight on Eloise
Softly in between
Sweetly haggard, darkly lacquered

Power chords throughout here:

B5                D5
A caution blows
A5
On the good things, on the fine things
B5                   D5
[Im]patience blows
A5                C#5
It can take time, it's a fine line

F#5                 A5
Throw stones in the wishing well
E5
What's next you can never tell
    F#5        A5      E5
The outline of what we live through

Guitar 2 goes:
e-------------------------------
B-------------------------------
G-9-9-7-6-4-2-------------------
D-------------------------------
A-------------------------------
E-------------------------------
It's dirtier than that, though, so experiment with some open frets above
or below the riff.

F#5             A5
Sleep well but when you die
E5
I'll say it serves you right
    F#5        A5        E5
The outline of what surrounds you
Won't hunt you anymore

Back to intro riff, rest is as above:

[?]
But I had no choice
Careening madly, wasn't long 'fore the sun went down
And I lost your voice

Night falls on Araby
Spoken ineffably
And these ankles, so newfangled
Dipped in a [rigaron]
[?]
Lost in shatters, caught in fetters

Silence [?]
As the light falls, it's a tough call
And so I fold
Take me, so no need

Repeat Chorus

Eva Luna, dressed down in a winter coat
[Did] turn your ear
Talking backwards, words written in a sullen tone
Short and sincere
