When Poets Dreamed Of Angels (David Sylvian)

Tuning: standard (EADGHE)

I found some live version of the song so I got the chords for the song figured out quite 
There might still be a few mistakes though.

Chords used:

 Fmaj7-5 Em A  Am Bm F  G  Edim7 Gm7 Am(2) Bbmaj7 Fm7 G# A#  Dsus2

--0------0--0--0--2--1--3--3-----3---5-----1------1---4--6---0-----|
--0------0--2--1--3--1--3--2-----3---5-----3------1---4--6---3-----|
--2------0--2--2--4--2--0--3-----3---5-----2------1---5--7---2-----|
--3------2--2--2--4--3--0--2-----3---7-----3------1---6--8---0-----|
--3------2--0--0--2--3--2--------5---7-----1------3---6--8---------|
--1------0-----------1--3--------3---5------------1---4--6---------|

Well here's how I play the intro part of the song. At some point a second guitar comes 
to mix it up, but here's my one-guitar version.

Intro:

---------------------------------------------------------------------|
-(12)-(7)-15-15-15p12------------------------------------------------|
-(12)-(7)-------------11-11h12p11----11-12-14-11---------------------|

-9-------------------7/9-----------------(5)-------------------------|
---10-9---9-10-9---------------------(5)-----------------------------|
--------7--------7---------------(7)---------------------------------|

And then:

Em, Fmaj7-5, Em, Fmaj7-5, Em, A

Verse:

Fmaj7-5              Em   Fmaj7-5
She rises early from bed, runs to the mirror.
    Em      A            Am         Bm      Em
The bruises inflicted in moments of fury.
Fmaj7-5                   Em    Fmaj7-5
He kneels beside her once more, whispers of promise
Em              A           Am           Bm       Em
"Next time I'll break every bone in your body.".
F                    G                  A
And the well-wishers let the devil in.
           F                    G                   A
And if the river ran dry they'd deny it happening.


Bridge:

Edim                F                          Edim          F
As the card players steal their hands from the bottom of the deck.
Am              G             Gm7          Am
Row upon row of feudal houses blown away.
Bbmaj7           Fm7        Gm7       G#   A#
Medicine for the popular complaint.


Chorus:

Em                        Fmaj7-5 Em
When the poets dreamed of angels, what did they see?
A             Am      Dsus2          Fmaj7-5
History lined up in a flash on their backs.
Em                        Fmaj7-5 Em
When the poets dreamed of angels, what did they see?
    A           Am           Dsus2     Fmaj7-5
The Bishops and knights well placed to attack.

Now it should be quite close to how it's played. At least this is how he played the 
at one live show I watched. Not completely sure about the Bm there, but I think it is it.
