None of the other tabs had the correct chords, including that weird sounding chord, 
so I decided to make correct tab. The chord in question is an F#m7b5/C, which contains the notes
F#-A-C-E. I play it like so:

e) 5
B) 5
G) 4
D) x
A) 3
E) x


____________

Intro:
B - F#m7 - Dsus2 A/C# - Esus2
B - F#m7 - Dsus2 A/C# - F#m7b5/C



Verse:
C#m7
Came in from a rainy thursday
E        F#sus4 F#
on the avenue
C#m7                               E       F#sus4 F#
thought I heard you talking softly
C#m7
I turned on the lights, the tv
E           F#sus4 F#
and the radio
C#m                               E     F#sus4 F#
still I can't escape the ghost of you



Bridge:
C#m
What is happened to it all?
G#m7
Crazy, some say
D#                      E
Where is the life that I recognize?
E
gone away



Chorus
B                         F#m7
But I won't cry for yesterday
                      Dsus2
there's an ordinary world
        A/C#          E
somehow I have to find
B                        F#m7
And as I try to make my way
                  Dsus2
to the ordinary world
        A/C#         F#m7b5/C
I will learn to survive

 
The chord patterns are similar throughout. However, that F#m7b5/C returns again at the end of the 
guitar theme in the middle of the song. Otherwise it is replaced by an Esus2 as in
the first half of the intro.

This song has very special tone and many sus-chords. And "the honey on the bottom of the pot" is the last chord of verse. To me it's not the one you have proposed. In addition to that I think there is some clearly wrong chords. For example all the chords in verse are sus-chords. And so is the first chord in chorus too....

Very close, but I think the B's sound better as Bsus 799800 , and the F#m7b5/C really just sounds to me like it should be Am/C 032210, and although it doesn't sound bad to include it, I don't hear the F#sus4 being played at all in the original recording. The verses should just be C#m or C#m7 - E - F#

I've searched high and low for a tab where the writer even HEARS that there is a non-standard chord at the end of "I will learn to survive". Until I get to ask Warren himself I'll be playing F#m7b5/C. Sincerely, thank you so much.
