The reason that there is a G is to connect the Am and the F so hit it quick.

Intro:
Am	Am	Am	Am   G
F	F	F	F    G

Verse:

Am	Am	     Am	  	Am  G
  Don't hold yourself like that
F	F		F	F   G
  You'll hurt your knees
Am      Am	Am            Am   G
  I kissed your mouth and back
F	F         F      F
  That's all I need

G       G            F          F
  Don't build your world around
G    G          F         F - tacet -
  Volcanoes melt you down

Chorus:

       Am       Am       F     F
What I am to you, is not real
       Am       Am           F     F
What I am to you, you do not need
       Am       Am                F        F
What I am to you, is not what you mean to me
            Am        Am                      F        F
You give me miles and miles of mountains, and I ask for the sea

Verse:

Don't throw yourself like that
In front of me
I kissed your mouth your back
Is that all you need?
Don't drag my love around
Volcanoes melt me down

Chorus


Bridge
           C
for what I give to you
                 G
Is just what i'm going through
              Am
This is nothing new
                 F
No no just another phase of finding
           C
what I really need
        E
Is what makes me bleed
           Am
And like a new disease
            F
Lord, she's still too young to treat

Follow with some still to youngs and stuff if you know the song you know what I mean

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.
