Oh yeah, and now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight 

And how could I ever refuse 
A E                      A    G  D  # A  
I feel like I win when I lose

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
