DD chord             AA chord         BmBm chord                 GG chord
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath
   DD chord           AA chord             BmBm chord             GG chord
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak
  DD chord               AA chord                    BmBm chord      AA chord       GG chord
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
   DD chord  AA chord  DD chord
Oh ho-o-onestly
 
 
DD chord              AA chord                 BmBm chord           GG chord
Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
DD chord                 AA chord             BmBm chord               GG chord
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
DD chord                AA chord                  BmBm chord     AA chord      GG chord 
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song

Its goes o-o-on and on 
 
Chorus:
GG chord                 DD chord             AA chord               DD chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  GG chord               DD chord                AA chord       AA chord         BmBm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    GG chord                  AA chord                BmBm chord      AA chord      GG chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           E7E7 chord
My farewell
            Em7Em7 chord                     Em7Em7 chord DD chord   GG chord   AA chord   DD chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

  DD chord               AA chord            BmBm chord             GG chord
I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
       DD chord                AA chord           BmBm chord         GG chord
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
 DD chord              AA chord                      BmBm chord      AA chord         GG chord
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?
    DD chord     AA chord      DD chord
And only scars remain

Bridge:
         BmBm chord                  GG chord
But if I don't, then I'll go back
                DD chord
To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        AA chord                                  BmBm chord
Just because they needed saving just like that
              GG chord
Oh, I'm here again
            DD chord
Between the devil and the danger
       AA chord
But I guess it's just my nature
            GG chord
My dad was wrong
                        AA chord
'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   BmBm chord               AA chord            GG chord
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
       E7E7 chord
But it helps

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.
