Verse:
CC chord             GG chord         AmAm chord                 FF chord
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath
   CC chord           GG chord             AmAm chord             FF chord
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak
  CC chord               GG chord                    AmAm chord      GG chord       FF chord
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
   CC chord  GG chord  CC chord
Oh ho-o-onestly
 
 
CC chord              GG chord                 AmAm chord           FF chord
Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
CC chord                 GG chord             AmAm chord               FF chord
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
CC chord                GG chord                  AmAm chord     GG chord      FF chord 
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
         CC chord     GG chord    CC chord
Its goes o-o-on and on 
 
Chorus:
FF chord                 CC chord             GG chord               CC chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  FF chord               CC chord                GG chord       GG chord         AmAm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    FF chord                  GG chord                AmAm chord      GG chord      FF chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           D7D7 chord
My farewell
            Dm7Dm7 chord                     Dm7Dm7 chord CC chord   FF chord   GG chord   CC chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
 
Verse:
  CC chord               GG chord            AmAm chord             FF chord
I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
       CC chord                GG chord           AmAm chord         FF chord
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
 CC chord              GG chord                      AmAm chord      GG chord         FF chord
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?
    CC chord     GG chord      CC chord
And only scars remain
 
Chorus:
FF chord                 CC chord             GG chord               CC chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels

My farewell
            Dm7Dm7 chord                     Dm7Dm7 chord CC chord   FF chord   GG chord   CC chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
 
Bridge:
         AmAm chord                  FF chord
But if I don't, then I'll go back
                CC chord
To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        GG chord                                  AmAm chord
Just because they needed saving just like that
              FF chord
Oh, I'm here again
            CC chord
Between the devil and the danger
       GG chord
But I guess it's just my nature
            FF chord
My dad was wrong
                        GG chord
'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   AmAm chord               GG chord            FF chord
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
       D7D7 chord
But it helps
            Dm7Dm7 chord                     Dm7Dm7 chord CC chord   FF chord   GG chord   CC chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

  FF chord               CC chord                GG chord       GG chord        AmAm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    FF chord                  GG chord                AmAm chord      GG chord      FF chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf

My farewell

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 "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
