I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    DbDb chord                  EbEb chord                FmFm chord      EbEb chord      DbDb chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf

And only scars remain

To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        EbEb chord                                  FmFm chord
Just because they needed saving just like that
              DbDb chord
Oh, I'm here again

Between the devil and the danger
       EbEb chord
But I guess it's just my nature

My dad was wrong

'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   FmFm chord               EbEb chord            DbDb chord

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.
