F                        Bb           F
I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
Bb       F              C
I am a rock, not just another grain of sand -that's right-
F                              Bb                F
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
Bb            F            C                                 
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand because we can

Interlude: F   Bb   F   Bb   F   C

Bb                     Dm
She's in the kitchen starin' out the window
Bb                   Dm 
So tired of livin' life in black and white
Bb                            Dm
Right now she's missin' those technicolour kisses
Bb                     C
When he turns down the lights
Bb                  Dm
But lately feelin' like a broken promise
Bb             Dm
In the mirror starin' down his doubt
Bb                           Dm
There's only one thing in this world that he'd know
Bb                        C
He said forever and he'll never let her down


F                        Bb           F
I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
Bb       F              C
I am a rock, not just another grain of sand -that's right-
F                              Bb                F
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
Bb            F            C                                 
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand because we can

Interlude: F  Bb  F

Bb                Dm  
Eatin' takeout on a coffee table
Bb            Dm
Paper dishes, pour a glass of wine
Bb                      Dm
Turn down the sound and move a little closer
Bb                      C
And for the moment everything is alright


F                        Bb           F
I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
Bb       F              C
I am a rock, not just another grain of sand -that's right-
F                              Bb                F
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
Bb            F            C                                 
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand because we can


         Bb   F      Bb               F
Because we can, our love can move a mountain
   Bb   F      Bb         C
We can, if you believe in we
   Bb  F     Bb                F
We can, just wrap your arms around me
   Bb F   C
We can, we can

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.
