Abm                E                   B
  What have I done? I wish I could run
                   Gb
Away from this ship goin' under
Abm                   E                   B
  Just tryin' to help, hurt everyone else
                     Gb
Now I feel the weight of the world is
E  Gb  E    Gb
On my shoulders

Chorus:
B                             Gb
What can you do when your good isn’t good enough?
     Abm           Gb            E
When all that you touch tumbles down?
       B                        Gb
'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
  Abm         Gb         E
I just wanna fix it somehow
    Abm               Gb             E
But how many it times will it take?
    Abm            Gb            E
Oh, how many times will it take for me?
          B    Gb
To get it right
          Abm Gb       E
To get it ri-igh-ight


Abm                E                   B
Can I start again with my faith shaken?
                   Gb
'Cause I can't go back and undo this
Abm                   E                   B
I just have to stay and face my mistakes
              Gb
But if I get stronger and wiser
E  Gb  E    Gb 
I'll get through this

Chorus:
B                             Gb
What can you do when your good isn’t good enough?
     Abm           Gb            E
When all that you touch tumbles down?
       B                        Gb
'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
  Abm         Gb         E
I just wanna fix it somehow
    Abm               Gb             E
But how many it times will it take?
    Abm            Gb            E
Oh, how many times will it take for me?
          B    Gb
To get it right
          Abm Gb       E
To get it ri-igh-ight


Dbm                     B
  So I throw up my fist
                       E
I will punch in the air
And accept the truth that sometimes life isn’t fair
Dbm                          B
  Yeah, I'll send out a wish
                           E
Yeah, I'll send up a prayer
And finally, someone will see
How much I care!

Chorus:

       B                        Gb
'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things
  Abm         Gb         E
I just wanna fix it somehow
    Abm               Gb             E
But how many it times will it take?
    Abm            Gb            E
Oh, how many times will it take for me?
          B    Gb
To get it right
          Abm Gb       E
To get it ri-igh-ight

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.
