Eb                                                Bb
I've practiced this for hours, gone round and round
                                      Cm
And now I think that I've got it all down
                                        Ab
And as I say it louder I love how it sounds
                                   F
Cause I'm not taking the easy way out.

Not wrapping this in ribbons,
                                  Ab
Shouldn't have to give a reason why...

Chorus:
             Eb
It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow
            Bb
I can't believe that I stayed till today
            Cm
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
        Ab                  Bb                   Eb
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.


Eb                                       Bb
It came out like a river once I let it out
                                    Cm
When I thought that I wouldn't know how
                                      Ab
Held onto it forever just pushing it down
                              F
Felt so good to let go of it now

Not wrapping this in ribbons
                                 Ab
Shouldn't have to give a reason why

Chorus:
             Eb
It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow.
            Bb
I can't believe that I stayed till today
                Cm
There's nothing here in this heart left to borrow
                 Ab                          Bb
There's nothing here in this soul left to say
               Eb
Don't be surprised when we hate this tomorrow
               Bb
God knows we tried to find an easier way
            Cm
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
        Ab                  Bb                     Eb
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.


     Eb
Our favorite place we used to go
     Bb
The warm embrace that no one knows
     Cm
The loving look that's left your eyes
        Ab                Bb              Eb
That's why this comes as no, as no surprise.


Eb                                             Bb
If I could see the future and how this plays out
                                    Cm
I bet it's better than where we are now
                                              Ab
But after going through this, it's easier to see the reason why

Chorus:
              Eb
It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow
            Bb
I can't believe that I stayed till today
            Cm
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
       Ab                  Bb                    Eb
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.


     Eb
Our favorite place we used to go
     Bb
The warm embrace that no one knows
     Cm
The loving look that's left your eyes
       Ab                  Bb                    Eb
But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.

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.
