E             B              Abm            Gb
You took my heart and you held it in your mouth
E             B           Abm             Gb
And, with a word all my love came rushing out
E            B             Abm                Gb
And, every whisper, it's the worst, emptied out by a single word
E          B         Abm    Gb
There is a hollow in me now


E                  B
So I put my faith in something unknown
Abm              Gb
I'm living on such sweet nothing
E                      B
But I'm trying to hope with nothing to hold
Abm             Gb
I'm living on such sweet nothing
E
And it's hard to learn
B
And it's hard to love
Abm                   Gb
When you're giving me such sweet nothing
E               B
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
Abm              Gb
You're giving me such sweet nothing

Interlude: E   B   Abm   Gb

E       B        Abm          Gb
It isn't easy for me to let it go
  E
Cause
         B       Abm         Gb
I've swallowed every single word
 E
And
        B            Abm  
Every whisper, every sigh
       Gb                    E
Eats away at this heart of mine
                 B           Abm      Gb
And there is a hollow in me now


E                  B
So I put my faith in something unknown
Abm              Gb
I'm living on such sweet nothing
E                      B
But I'm trying to hope with nothing to hold
Abm             Gb
I'm living on such sweet nothing
E
And it's hard to learn
B
And it's hard to love
Abm                   Gb
When you're giving me such sweet nothing
E               B
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
Abm              Gb
You're giving me such sweet nothing

Interlude: E   B   Abm   Gb

E               B 
And it's not enough
     Abm             Gb
To tell me that you care
E              B        Abm           Gb
When, we both know the words are empty air
               E   B   Abm   Gb  
You give me nothi-------------ng
E   B   Abm   Gb
Nothi---------ng

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.
