[Intro] x2
Eb    Dm      Gm      Bb      Eb      Dm      Gm     Bb
  Ey, Ah, Ey, Ah, Ey, Ah, Ey      Ey, Ah, Ey, Ahaaa, Oh

[Verse 1]
Eb            Dm       Gm         Bb
  I know that you must feel like facing
       Eb     Dm           Gm         Bb
with a ruin, facing with a ruin
Eb            Dm       Gm   Bb            Eb
  I messed it up as always, I'm afraid of loosing,
 Dm           Gm       Bb   
I'm afraid of loosing 
Eb       Dm            Gm     Bb
  I made you thinking oh so wrong
Eb           Dm          Gm    Bb   
  I made you feeling the worst
Eb            Dm       Gm          Bb
  And I don't know how to get along
Eb        Dm               Gm      Cm
  With myself when I'm weakened
             F
when I'm weakened

[Chorus]
            Eb      Dm    Gm     Bb
So let's go back to our cocoon
    Eb       Dm    Gm    Bb
On blackened afternoon
           Eb       Dm       Gm    Bb
I see your heart is bleeding too
        Eb      Dm      Gm    
Let me bleed instead of you
            Eb      Dm    Gm     Bb
So let's go back to our cocoon
    Eb       Dm    Gm    Bb
On blackened afternoon
           Eb       Dm       Gm    Bb
I see your heart is bleeding too
        Eb      Dm      Gm    
Let me bleed instead of you
       Bb            Eb
Let me bleed, let me bleed
    Dm     Gm
(Eh-ah, eh-ah)
       Bb            Eb
Let me bleed, let me bleed
    Dm     Gm
(Eh-ah, eh-ah)
   Bb         
Instead of you

[Verse 2]
Eb          Dm       Gm     Bb           Eb      Dm           Gm    Bb
  I've been always playing solid as I'm waving, solid as I'm waving 
Eb        Dm     Gm    Bb             Eb     Dm       Gm     Bb
  So I became a liar, I've been underrating, overestimated
Eb          Dm      Gm      Bb
  I made it really hard for you,
Eb         Dm     Gm       Bb
  Hard for you to love me
Eb            Dm       Gm             Bb
  But there's so many things we could do
Eb           Dm          Gm    Cm
  And all we need is escaping
     F
Escaping

[Chorus]
            Eb      Dm    Gm     Bb
So let's go back to our cocoon
    Eb       Dm    Gm    Bb
On blackened afternoon
           Eb       Dm       Gm    Bb
I see your heart is bleeding too
        Eb      Dm      Gm    
Let me bleed instead of you
            Eb      Dm    Gm     Bb
So let's go back to our cocoon
    Eb       Dm    Gm    Bb
On blackened afternoon
           Eb       Dm       Gm    Bb
I see your heart is bleeding too
        Eb      Dm      Gm    
Let me bleed instead of you
       Bb            Eb
Let me bleed, let me bleed
    Dm     Gm
(Eh-ah, eh-ah)
       Bb            Eb
Let me bleed, let me bleed
    Dm     Gm
(Eh-ah, eh-ah)
   Bb         
Instead of you

wrong riff

I found it easier to capo on 3 and play chords (these chords can be viewed by transposing -3 on UG

C Bm Em G

then Am and stay on D before chorus

This puts the song in the Key of Gm or Bb relative maj (correct me please music gurus)

For first riff you can play

top 3 notes of those chords as arpeggio from 1st string to 3rd string as follows with some cheeky slides in between the notes on the 3rd string

C Bm Em G
3 2 0 3
5 3 0 3
5\ 4 0/ 4

You can use the 4th Pattern of Gm Pentatonic on the 10th fret to rock the solo just needs a bit of a noodle and some colour notes to match the recording, you could do your own solo in this position with some slides and bends of the 2nd string which sound cool.

thats this pattern
e|-------------------------------------------10--13--
B|-----------------------------------11--13---------- <-- slide/bend 13 up 2
G|--------------------------10--12------------------- <-- start licks on 12
D|------------------10--12---------------------------
A|----------10--13-----------------------------------
E|--10--13-------------------------------------------
