Phoenix Girlfriend

From Live in Sydney, although you can play it with the album and still sound good

Intro

Just bar on 4 and tap the 7th and 6th frets with your right index finger.
|-----------------||
|74747474---------||
|--------64646464.|| x4
|----------------.||
|-----------------||
|-----------------||

That goes twice and then the intro where you play these chords
  B   Em7  C#m
|-7-----6-----4-------|
|-7-----7-----5-------|
|-8-----6-----6-------|
|-9-----8-----6-------|
|-9-----6-----4-------|
|-7-------------------|

It's just B for the first 16 and the second 16 the Em7 plays for a little bit; listen to 
the live recording for the pattern.

The verse riff is this:

|--------------------------|
|--------------------------|
|--------------------------|
|------11------------------|
|9-9-----9-999-9-9---------|
|--------------------------|
"Tired out, not a miracle in days, etc"

Play it palm muted and every fourth time play this instead.

|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|-11-9-11-9-11-9-11-9----------|
|------------------------------|

For the prechorus, play this twice

|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|--11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-----|
|-9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9-------|
|------------------------------|
"Die and succeed, I say it out loud but you just don't care"


And then these power chords (I tried to explain the strumming pattern but just listen to 
the song)

|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-999-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-111113-13-13-13-13139-9-9-9-9911-11-11-11-1111--|
|-999-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-111113-13-13-13-13139-9-9-9-9911-11-11-11-1111--|
|-777-7-7-7-9--9--9--9--9 9 11-11-11-11-11117-7-7-7-779--9--9--9--9-9---|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
"Farewell well well well well well well, etc"

And do the opening chord sequence again

  B   Em7  C#m
|-7-----6-----4-------|
|-7-----7-----5-------|
|-8-----6-----6-------|
|-9-----8-----6-------|
|-9-----6-----4-------|
|-7-------------------|
"Girlfriend"

For the third verse it's the same thing and for the fourth it is silent. At the end 
before the prechorus play these notes
|--7p4------7p4-------7p4------7p4------7p4------|
|-----7p4------7p4-------7p4------7p4------7p4---|
|--------6p4------6p4------6p4------6p4-------6p4|
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|

The rest is just the prechorus chords and then the chorus chords twice.

Lyrics:
Tired out, not a miracle in days
Deciders for the lonely whispering tears
You try out for nothing then you drop dead, not a miracle in years
Leisure for the lonely whispering unnecessary unless you're in

Die and succeed
I say it out loud but you just don't care
Farewell, well, well, well, well, well, well 'til you know me well
Farewell, well, well, well, well, well, well 'til you know me well
Girlfriend

We are far from home, I am with you now
I'm am longing you, I am longing us two
Who bought a miracle sells these fortune tears

December's death or glory how you want it?
No, not a miracle in years
Deciders for the lonely wishing death wishes death unless

Die and succeed
I say it out loud but you just don't care
Farewell, well, well, well, well, well, well 'til you know me well
Farewell, well, well, well, well, well, well 'til you know me well
Girlfriend

Die and succeed
I say it out loud but you just don't care
Farewell, well, well, well, well, well, well
Girlfriend
