Verse 1:
Bb       Dm           Gm    F
Lyin' awake all weekend
        Bb              Dm      Gm     F
Like a bug stuck in a Venus Flytrap
am I supposed to hold out, darling?
Dm              Eb
We don't have forever
-I'm just a bug-
            Bb                    Dm        Gm      F
I'm just a bug and I'm yours to slowly digest

Eb      F7      Bb      Bb7                   Eb
To her I came just to lay and rest my head
        F7       Bb          Bb7             Eb
Her firm embrace, it would make my final bed
      F7    Bb     Bb7 G7    Cm  
Mother nature takes no prisoners
                 Eb          F7
But I'll never leave these living walls

Verse 2:
Bb            Dm              Gm     F
You got me seduced in fluent haiku
           Bb                 Dm        Gm      F
I'll be abused if that means I can lie beside you
               Bb    Dm
Where I'll dissolve
   Eb              F              Bb
Into the colours on the forest floor
       Dm      Gm  
Where far above
           F         Eb         F      Bb     Bb7

The butterflies flutter by but I won't

Buzz along

Chorus 2:
Eb      F7       Bb      Bb7               Eb
To her I came just to lay and rest my head
       F7       Bb           Bb7            Eb
Her firm embrace, it would take my final breath
             F7           Bb  Bb7
But mother nature decides
That's why
She'll always rule and you'll abide it
Eb           F7       Bb A7 Dm D7 Gm F
That's what I did too

      Eb      F7   Bb A7 Dm 
Just lie to die
D7     Gm     F  Eb  Ebm  Bb
I'm in love

Please 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 try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
