We watched the sun go down as we were walking
AbAb chord                                DbDb chord              AbAb chord
I'd spent the rest of my life standing here talking
AbAb chord                              DbDb chord            AbAb chord
You would explain the current, as I just smile

Do we even exist?
 DbDb chord                      AbAb chord         DbDb chord                  AbAb chord
That's when I make the wish, to swim away with the fish
AbAb chord                              DbDb chord           AbAb chord
Is it supposed to be this hot all summer long?
CmCm chord                    DbDb chord                       CmCm chord
I never would've believed you if three years ago you told me

I'd be here writing this song

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.
