Verse:
Ebm7Ebm7 chord                            BB chord
Still got the flowers that you sent
        GbGb chord                               DbDb chord
And the note you wrote that said we're meant to be forever
Ebm7Ebm7 chord                        BB chord
I keep them all as evidence
      GbGb chord                                    DbDb chord
In a drawer under the mirror, filled with empty promises
Abm7Abm7 chord
I don't know why
       Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I keep letting you lie to me
GbGb chord
Hard as I try
           DbDb chord
It seems I can't break away
               Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I thought that you would be the hero
         BB chord
Come and save the day
                  GbGb chord
But you're a villain
                  DbDb chord
Your sins unforgiven
 
Chorus:
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord                                BB chord
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              GbGb chord                        DbDb chord
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord                                   BB chord
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              GbGb chord                    DbDb chord
The river of tears has washed me clean
Abm7Abm7 chord
Go 'head and wish me well
EbmEbm chord
I'll cry a wishing well
GbGb chord
I'll fly before I fail
DbDb chord                       Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I'll set sail and drift away
                       BB chord
So I won't need you here
                         GbGb chord
Love sinks and hope floats
                  DbDb chord
In a river of tears
 
In a river of tears
 
Verse:
Ebm7Ebm7 chord                         BB chord
I catch your scent in every wind
         GbGb chord         
And I recall the love we had
         DbDb chord             Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I can't pretend that I 
                             BB chord
Don't miss you every now and then
        GbGb chord
But the hurt is for the better
        DbDb chord
Moving on, it's now or never
Abm7Abm7 chord                            Ebm7Ebm7 chord
Lost in the tide, I can't keep my pillows dry
               GbGb chord
Like there's a sea in my eyes
      DbDb chord                                   Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I realise that sometimes love brings you flowers
                     BB chord
Then it builds you coffins
               GbGb chord
And far too often
                  DbDb chord
We end up falling to our demise
 
Chorus:
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord                                BB chord
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              GbGb chord                        DbDb chord
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord                                   BB chord
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              GbGb chord                    DbDb chord
The river of tears has washed me clean
Abm7Abm7 chord
Go 'head and wish me well
EbmEbm chord
I'll cry a wishing well
GbGb chord
I'll fly before I fail
DbDb chord                       Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I'll set sail and drift away
                       BB chord
So I won't need you here
                         GbGb chord
Love sinks and hope floats
                  DbDb chord
In a river of tears
 
In a river of tears
 
Bridge:
Ebm7Ebm7 chord       DbDb chord           GbGb chord
Cry me a river, build myself a Bridge
         Abm7Abm7 chord           BB chord
I'm over this, can't let memories become the death of me
            Ebm7Ebm7 chord        DbDb chord            GbGb chord
I'm glad to see everything that you are
         Abm7Abm7 chord               BB chord
And I believe that you are everything I needed
 
But I don't need no more
 
Chorus:
Ebm7Ebm7 chord                                          BB chord
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              GbGb chord                        DbDb chord
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord                                   BB chord
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              GbGb chord                    DbDb chord
The river of tears has washed me clean
Abm7Abm7 chord
Go 'head and wish me well
EbmEbm chord
I'll cry a wishing well
GbGb chord
I'll fly before I fail
DbDb chord                       Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I'll set sail and drift away

So I won't need you here
                         GbGb chord
Love sinks and hope floats
                  DbDb chord
In a river of tears
 
In a river of tears

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 "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
