This depressing song is actually pretty simple.  It just uses barred chords pulling off to their minor.  And the singing just mimics the guitar so that's easy too.

INTRO and first part of VERSES:

   G                                     C
e|-3-------3---------3-------------------3-------3-------------3---------------| play twice
B|-3-------3---------3--------3----------5--4-5--5--5P4-4-4H5--5--4-5-5P4-4H5--| for the
G|-4--3-4--4--4-3-4--4--4-3-4---4-4P3-4--5-------5-------------5---------------| first verse,
D|-5-------5---------5-------------------5-------5-------------5---------------| only once
A|-5-------5---------5-------------------3-------3-------------3---------------| for the
E|-3-------3---------3-------------------3-------3-------------3---------------| second verse

 "behind her....curtains....closed......flames.......remains"
 "she knows.....burnin'.....smile.......same.........same"

second part of VERSES:

   F#        G    E         F#      G    E


After the second verse the F# G E is repeated a lot while Eddie sings "drifting away".

I'm sure that's not 100% accurate, so I'd welcome any and all changes or suggestions.

Behind her eyes there's curtains and they've been closed to hide the flames. Remains.
She knows their futures burning but she can smile just the same. Same.
And though her mood is fine today there's a fear they'll soon be parting ways.

Standing like a statue. A chin of stone a heart of clay. Hey.
And though he's too big a man to say there's a fear they'll soon be parting ways.

Drifting away. Drifting away. Drifting away. Away. Away.
Drifting away. Drifting away. Drifting away. Away. Away.
