Verse:
D Dadd9 Bm7 G

D        Dadd9
   This is erosion
Bm7            G
   Grinding up rocks with your molars
D             Dadd9           Bm7
   A big fish swims past your rod
                               G
   You can’t catch it, it’s far too fast

Interlude: D Dadd9 Bm7 G

D            Dadd9           Bm7
   Deep hook marks in rubber lips
              G
   I see your eyes in the flowers
D              Dadd9          Bm7
   I’ll pick a bunch for your room
             G
   Green and blue to match your pictures

Chorus:
Bm7    G                 D
   You looked so good in green
     A           Bm7
   I hope you’re well
           G                 D
   And you look so good with him
           A            Bm7
   And I’m proud of you still
     G                 D
   I miss your perfect teeth
     A       Bm7
   I was too blunt
     G                D
   I hope you feel happy
          A     Bm7
   That’s all I want
G  D
           A     Bm7
   That’s all I want

Verse:
Bm D A
D              G
   Mess in the kitchen

Bm       Bm7
   I was so disappointed
D            A         Bm
   I guess I got to my head
                 Bm7                 D
   And I was too young to understand it

A Bm Bm7
D           A                 Bm
   I get it now that it’s too late
           Bm7
   I never stopped feeling guilty
D           A             Bm
   I’m over it, I promise that
                Bm7               D
   I just gotta sing it out of me

Chorus:
       G                 D
   You looked so good in green
     A           Bm7
   I hope you’re well
           G                 D
   And you look so good with him
        A               Bm7
   And I’m proud of you still
        G          D
   Take care of my shirt
   A        Bm7
   Warm and red
     G                   D
   I hope you think of me
   A              Bm7
   Still as your friend
     G                 D
   I hope you love yourself
        A       Bm7
   Your body an heart
     G                D
   I hope you feel happy
          A     Bm7
   That’s all I want
G  D
           A     Bm7
   That’s all I want

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.
