Verse:
GG chord             DD chord         EmEm chord                 CC chord
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath
   GG chord           DD chord             EmEm chord             CC chord
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak
  GG chord               DD chord                    EmEm chord      DD chord       CC chord
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
   GG chord  DD chord  GG chord
Oh ho-o-onestly
 
 
GG chord              DD chord                 EmEm chord           CC chord
Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
GG chord                 DD chord             EmEm chord               CC chord
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
GG chord                DD chord                  EmEm chord     DD chord      CC chord 
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
         GG chord     DD chord    GG chord
Its goes o-o-on and on 
 
Chorus:
CC chord                 GG chord             DD chord               GG chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  CC chord               GG chord                DD chord       DD chord         EmEm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    CC chord                  DD chord                EmEm chord      DD chord      CC chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           A7A7 chord
My farewell
            Am7Am7 chord                     Am7Am7 chord GG chord   CC chord   DD chord   GG chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
 
Verse:
  GG chord               DD chord            EmEm chord             CC chord
I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
       GG chord                DD chord           EmEm chord         CC chord
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
 GG chord              DD chord                      EmEm chord      DD chord         CC chord
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?
    GG chord     DD chord      GG chord
And only scars remain
 
Chorus:
CC chord                 GG chord             DD chord               GG chord
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels

And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           A7A7 chord
My farewell
            Am7Am7 chord                     Am7Am7 chord GG chord   CC chord   DD chord   GG chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
 
Bridge:
         EmEm chord                  CC chord
But if I don't, then I'll go back
                GG chord
To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        DD chord                                  EmEm chord
Just because they needed saving just like that
              CC chord
Oh, I'm here again
            GG chord
Between the devil and the danger
       DD chord
But I guess it's just my nature
            CC chord
My dad was wrong
                        DD chord
'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   EmEm chord               DD chord            CC chord
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
       A7A7 chord
But it helps
            Am7Am7 chord                     Am7Am7 chord GG chord   CC chord   DD chord   GG chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

  CC chord               GG chord                DD chord       DD chord        EmEm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    CC chord                  DD chord                EmEm chord      DD chord      CC chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           A7A7 chord
My farewell
            Am7Am7 chord                     Am7Am7 chord GG chord   CC chord   DD chord   GG 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.
