So, what's the chord progression?

F#m G#m A B B A G#m F#m?

Or C#m E A B B A Ebm C#m?

Or is it different?

I'm having trouble figuring out which part of the piece you have in mind.

It's alternating between two chords:

F#m7 and G#m7.

What I kind of like for the third time when you hear this melodic bit is when the tune changes gears a whole-tone lower, it doesn't use the straightforward E and F# minor chords, but adds an A and B bass respectively. So the chords then would be like alternating Em7/A and F#m7/B or something. I really like the effect.
