Intro:
    G Am C
    G Am C
    C  C 

Verse 1:
       G         C         B7         Em
Most days I wake up with a pit in my chest
              Dm           G             C
There are thoughts that I can't put to rest
            G                   Am7    C  C 
There's a worry that I can't place


         G          C          B7          Em
Most nights, I am restless and quiet won't come
      Dm           G            C
So I lay there and wait for the sun
              G                         A     Am    
There's a trouble that won't show its face

Pre-Chorus:
C               D         Bm7                          Em   D
You came out of nowhere and you cut through all the noise
C                   D         Bm7     B7                Em   D     
I make sense to the madness when I listen to your voice

Chorus:
    C          Em      D       G     D    Em
Darling, only you can ease my mind
  C                 Em     D        G      C  G
Help me leave these lonely thoughts behind
                  C    Bm                  D      B          Em       D
When they pull me under, and I can feel my sanity start to unwind
   C          Em      D       G         C  G
Darling, only you can ease my mind

Verse 2:
      G           C        B7         Em
I'll admit, for a moment I felt so afraid
          Dm         G          C
Just to show you the mess that I made
            G               Am7    C  C 
There are pieces I usually hide


      G          C           B7          Em
But when you collect me with your steady hand
          Dm         G        C
With a language that I understand
           G                 A    Am   
I feel put back together inside

Pre-Chorus:
C               D         Bm7                          Em   D
You came out of nowhere and you cut through all the noise
C                   D         Bm7     B7                Em  D
I make sense to the madness when I listen to your voice

Chorus:
    C          Em      D       G     D    Em
Darling, only you can ease my mind
  C                 Em     D        G      C  G
Help me leave these lonely thoughts behind
                  C    Bm                  D      B          Em       D
When they pull me under, and I can feel my sanity start to unwind
   C          Em      D       G         C  G
Darling, only you can ease my mind

Chorus:
-Strum each chord once-
   C          Em      D       G     D     Em
Darling, only you can ease my mind
  C                 Em     D        G      C  G
Help me leave these lonely thoughts behind
                  C    Bm                  B                 Em       D
When they pull me under, and I can feel my sanity start to unwind
   C          Cm      D       G
Darling, only you can ease my mind

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.
