Great song with some strange chords. I’m not sure about the bridge, 
although it sounds at least close. But there are of course different 
options. Any suggestions for voicings and names of chords are highly
welcome!

CHORDS

BRIDGE
I couldn’t really decide between these options. Choose what you like 
better . . . or maybe come up with another solution. Please give feedback 
if you think you came closer – thanks!
 
Bm7/11 x-2-0-2-0-0
Asus4  x-0-0-2-0-0 or:
Bm7/11 x-2-0-2-3-3
Asus4  x-0-0-2-3-3 

CHORUS 
F#m7b5 3-x-2-2-1-x
B6     x-2-1-1-0-x

CODA
Don’t know what to call the second chord. Sounds kind of Spanish/Flamenco 
to me . . .  Any ideas?
 
F#     x-x-x-3-2-2
G-5    x-x-x-4-2-3
G-5*   x-x-5-4-2-x
