Intro -x2-: Gbm D A E

Verse 1:
Gbm  D                          A
You put all your faith in my dreams
      E                        Gbm
You gave me the world that I wanted
    D                A          E
What did I do to deserve you?
Gbm  D                        A
I follow your steps with my feet
    E                         Gbm
I walk on the road that you started
D                              A               E
I need you to know that I heard you, every word

Pre-Chorus:
            Bm  Gbm   E      D
I've waited way too long to say
    Bm     Gbm  E        D
Everything you mean to me

Chorus:
              D            A             E
In case you don't live forever, let me tell you now
             D                A              E
I love you more than you'll ever wrap your head around
             D            A              F           Gbm  A
In case you don't live forever, let me tell you the truth
         B            E
I'm everything that I am because of you

Interlude: Gbm D A E

Verse 2:
Gbm        D                     A
I, I've carried this song in my mind
E                      Gbm
Listen, it's echoing in me
    D                         A     E
But I haven't helped you to hear it
Gbm    D                    A
We, we've only got so much time
 E                       Gbm
I'm pretty sure it would kill me
                 D               A                 E
If you didn't know the pieces of me are pieces of you

Pre-Chorus:

Everything you mean to me

Chorus:
             D             A             E
In case you don't live forever, let me tell you now
             D                A              E
I love you more than you'll ever wrap your head around
             D            A              F           Gbm
In case you don't live forever, let me tell you the truth
         B             E
I'm everything that I am because of you

A
I just look up to you and I see one

I'm a man 'cause you taught me to be one

      A
I'm everything that I am

Whoa
D A  E
Whoa
             D            A              F           Gbm
In case you don't live forever, let me tell you the truth
     B          A         E                  A
As long as I'm here as I am, so are you

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.
