Can you recognize that this is a very simple progression that involves D-Bm-A? Give them new chord voicings and tried-and-true chords can still sound fresh enough to inspire a song — listen to the contrast when I switch to the “regular” way these chords are played. There’s so much smooth yet poignant vibe here that I’m sure I can write some awesome melodies on top of that. Be sure to mute the top 3 strings though, and if using electric, play with clean-ish tone.
The main chord here may be spelled like Em7#13? It’s basically an E minor with a Bb/A# thrown in, so the notes from the bottom are E-B-E-A#-D-E. I love this chord and use it often, as it has this really intense, desperate vibe to it. Pound on it and then throw a G-F contrast, and I think this would make an awesome hard rock tune. It may be a little too intense to pair it with painful words, though, I can hear it wanting some swagger elsewhere, whether it be the chorus or the lyrics.
