Intro:
    Db
    D A Gbm Bm -x2-

D                          A E   
Businessmen drink my blood
         Gbm                                 Bm
Like the kids in art school said they would
      D                            A E   
And I guess I'll just begin again
Gbm                              Bm
You say can we still be friends

Chorus:
D          E         D   
  If I was scared, I would
D              E      A        E   
  And if I was bored, you know I would
D              E                  Gbm   E
  And if I was yours, but I'm not


D                               A E   
All the kids have always known
         Gbm                        Bm
That the emperor wears new clothes
       D                          A E   
But to bow to down to them anyway
   Gbm                      Bm
Is better than to be alone

Chorus:
D          E         D   
  If I was scared, I would
D              E      A        E   
  And if I was bored, you know I would
D              E                  Gbm   E
  And if I was yours, but I'm not


D                               A E   
Now you're knocking at my door
       Gbm                                Bm
Saying please come out against the night
    D                        A E   
But I would rather be alone
Gbm                          Bm
Than pretend I feel alright


       D                           A E   
If the businessmen drink my blood
         Gbm                                 Bm
Like the kids in art school said they would
       D                           A E   
Then I guess I'll just begin again
Gbm                              Bm
You say can we still be friends

Chorus:
D          E        D   
  If I was scared, I would
D              E     A        E   
  And if I was pure, you know I would
D              E                  Gbm
  And if I was yours, but I'm not
E                D
Now I'm ready to start


D          E
  If I was scared, I would
D              E     A        E   
  And if I was pure, you know I would
D              E                  Gbm
  And if I was yours, but I'm not
E                D     Gbm
Now I'm ready to start


E                D     Gbm
Now I'm ready to start
E                 D     Gbm
I would rather be wrong
     E                      D
Than live in the shadows of your song
           Gbm
My mind is open wide
    E                D     Gbm 
And now I'm ready to start
    E                D
And now I'm ready to start
           Gbm
My mind is open wide
    E                D
And now I'm ready to start
                 Gbm
Your mind surely opened the door
   E                 D    Gbm
To step out into the dark
E   
Now I'm ready

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.
