I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath

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I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills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

My farewell
            Abm7Abm7 chord                     Abm7Abm7 chord GbGb chord   BB chord   DbDb chord   GbGb chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

 GbGb chord              DbDb chord                      EbmEbm chord      DbDb chord         BB chord
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?

And only scars remain

To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        DbDb chord                                  EbmEbm chord
Just because they needed saving just like that

Between the devil and the danger
       DbDb chord

My dad was wrong

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.
