Verse 1:
Bbm                                     
  Took a bite out of a mountain range,  
Gb
 thought my teeth would break, the mountain did.
Bbm                        
  Let's go, I want to go,  
Gb
 all the way to the horizon.
Bbm                                     
  I took a drink out of the ocean and,  
Fm Gb                                          Ab
    I'm treading water there before I drown.
Bbm                          
  Let's dive, I wanna dive,  
Fm Gb
    to the bottom of the ocean.

Pre-Chorus:
Ab                              
  I took a ride, I took a ride, 
            Bbm
I wouldn't go there without you.
Ab                                      
  Let's take a ride, we'll take a ride,

I wouldn't leave here without you.

Post-Chorus:
Ab          Bbm       Gb                  Db                Ab
  'Cos you tear us apart, with all the things you don't like.
      Bbm         Gb          Db       Ab

  Where it all went wrong.

Verse:
Bbm                                  
  I wrote a note to the jungle and,  
Fm Gb                                            Ab
    it wrote me back that I was never crowned,
Bbm                       
  king of the jungle so,  
Fm Gb
    there's an end to my horizon.

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.
