- fingerpicking -
                    Gb
Take everything you know and write it on your skin
                  Db
And you can carry on and forget everything
                    B                       Gb
Take everything you own and put it in your car
               Db
You can drive away, drive away so far,
                B                            Gb
And drive into a lake and take off all your clothes,
                   Db
Set your clothes on fire, now you are alone
                      B                       Gb
But you've got all you know written on your skin,
                 Db
So you can carry on and forget everything

Pre-Chorus:
Gb                 B         Gb
All the things I'd rather be,
                  B         Gb
All the things I'd rather be

Chorus:
Gb                                     Ebm  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    B            Gb
I can, only leave

I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here

I can, only leave

Bridge:
Gb                                 Db
Life feels like a music box, I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off
    Gb                                 Db
And life feels like a music box, I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off


     Gb                                              Db
- Let's start again -
And life feels like a music box - start again -, I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off
 - let's start again -

     Gb                                             Db
And life feels like a music box - start again - I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off

Chorus:
Gb                                     Ebm  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    B            Gb
I can, only leave
Gb                                     Ebm  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    B            Gb
I can, only leave

Outro:
Gb                         B            Gb
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here.

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.
