EE chord             BB chord         DbmDbm chord                 AA chord
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath

I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
   EE chord  BB chord  EE chord
Oh ho-o-onestly
 
 
EE chord              BB chord                 DbmDbm chord           AA chord

EE chord                 BB chord             DbmDbm chord               AA chord

Its goes o-o-on and on

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
  AA chord               EE chord                BB chord       BB chord         DbmDbm chord
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
    AA chord                  BB chord                DbmDbm chord      BB chord      AA chord
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf
           Gb7Gb7 chord
My farewell
            Gbm7Gbm7 chord                     Gbm7Gbm7 chord EE chord   AA chord   BB chord   EE chord
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

       EE chord                BB chord           DbmDbm chord         AA chord

 EE chord              BB chord                      DbmDbm chord      BB chord         AA chord
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?
    EE chord     BB chord      EE chord
And only scars remain

Bridge:
         DbmDbm chord                  AA chord
But if I don't, then I'll go back

To where I'm rescuing a stranger
        BB chord                                  DbmDbm chord
Just because they needed saving just like that
              AA chord
Oh, I'm here again
            EE chord
Between the devil and the danger
       BB chord
But I guess it's just my nature

My dad was wrong
                        BB chord
'Cause I'm not like my mum
                   DbmDbm chord               BB chord            AA chord

       Gb7Gb7 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.
