Chorus:
           Fm            Gb           Ab   Bbm       
-When your best friend's all strung out-
       Fm              Gb  
You do everything you can 
               Ab           Bbm
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
          Fm       Gb     Ab   Bbm
-When you find it all around-
    Fm                 Gb          Ab                 Bbm
Yeah, it comes in waves but it's hardest from the start

Verse:
Bbm
Feelings sleeping in the field again
      Ab
I can feel, I can feel, I can feel
                   Bbm    Ebm  Fm
It's beginning to end
Bbm 
Premonitions smiling in the dark
      Ab                        
I can see, I can see, I can see
                         Ebm  Db    Gb 
The story's starting to arc
Ab
 It dries up

Pre-Chorus:
Bbm
  I've been a spoken word
Bbm
  I've been a river bed
Bbm
  I've been a rabid force
Bbm
  And let it flow out from within
Ab                                                    Ebm   Db  
 Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white
    Gb          Ab
And color's so oh

Chorus:
           Fm            Gb           Ab   Bbm       
-When your best friend's all strung out-
       Fm              Gb  
You do everything you can 
               Ab           Bbm
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
          Fm       Gb     Ab   Bbm
-When you find it all around-
         Fm                  Gb
Yeah you say it's what you need
              Ab                Bbm
And hide your eyes when you're close to me
           Fm       Gb        Ab   Bbm
-With your feet up in the clouds-
    Fm              Gb             Ab                 Bbm             
Well, it comes to waves but it's hardest from the start

Verse:
Bbm
Waves in theta sleeping into dreams
      Ab
I can feel, I can feel, I can feel
                Bbm   Ebm  Fm
The celestial beings
Bbm 
Wilted pleasures leave you with a breath
      Ab
I can see, I can see, I can see
                   Ebm  Db    Gb
The beauty in the mess
Ab
 It dries up

Pre-Chorus:
Bbm
  I've been a river bed
Bbm 
  I tried to salt the wound
Bbm
  I've carried more than I can
Bbm
  I feel I've got a lot to prove
Ab                                                    Ebm  Db  
 Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white
    Gb          Ab
And color's so oh

No matter where you are
              Bbm                    Fm
Sometimes you have to wait until it passes by

No matter where you are

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.
