Intro -x2-: C G Am F

Verse 1:
C                   G              Am
  When it's just you and some song
Am        F
   That you don’t know how to play
C                      G
  Fake your way through, strum along
Am         F
    Be cool and you're okay
C                      E7
So your fingers get tangled in a pile
Am         F
    Your rhythm is a mess
C            G
 But nobody sees 'cause you smile
Am         F   nc 
   And the world will never guess

Chorus:
C       G        Am
 Can’t let them know
         F
'Cause no one understands
C         G        Am
 Your face can show
            F   F    nc 
What you're hid-ing in your hands

Interlude: C G Am F

Verse 2:
C                G          Am
 Daughter and son, man and wife
         F
Fill the photos on these walls
C               G
 Look at the fun, perfect life
Am       F
  Of plastic dress-up dolls
C                 E7
Happy house on a quaint suburban street
Am     F
  The sun hangs in the sky
C               G
  Everything framed nice and neat
Am      F
  In a lovely little lie

Chorus:
C       G        Am
 Can’t let them know
         F
'Cause no one understands
C         G        Am
 Your face can show

What you're hid-ing in your hands

Bridge:
Am   G  C      G  C   Am
Look at her, a to-tal trainwreck
C    Am  G        Am
Let her off this ride
Am   G   C        G   C   Am
Lift her out from all the pain
    C    Am  G        Am       C
She tells her-self she needs to hide

Verse 3:

When it's just you and that song
Am          F
  It's impossible to play

  Fake your way through, strum along
Am       F
  And everything’s okay

C       G        Am
 Can’t let them know
         F
'Cause no one understands
C         G        Am    F
 Your face can show
C G Am F
       No one understands
C        G
  Your face can show
Am            F   nc 
  What you're hi-ding in your hands

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.
