Verse 1
Bbm               Gb                Db                  
I don't like walking around this old and empty house
Bbm                     Gb                Db
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
Bbm                Gb           Db
The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
Bbm                      Gb                 Db
It's the house telling you to close your eyes
Bbm           Gb        Db
Some days I can't even trust myself
Bbm                  Gb            Db
It's killing me to see you this way

Chorus
                   Bbm        Gb         
'Cause though the truth may vary
    Db           Ab
This ship will carry
      Bbm    Gb        Db 
Our bodies safe to shore

Bbm - Gb - Db - Ab
            Hey!

Verse 2
            Bbm          Gb            Db                  
There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Bbm               Gb                Db
Tell her that I miss our little talks
Bbm                Gb         Db
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
Bbm                 Gb                   Db
We used to play outside when we were young - and full of life and full of love -
Bbm          Gb             Db
Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
Bbm                     Gb               Db
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

Chorus
                   Bbm        Gb         
'Cause though the truth may vary
    Db           Ab
This ship will carry
      Bbm    Gb        Db     Ab
Our bodies safe to shore  Hey!
Bbm                  Gb    Db     Ab
Don't listen to a word I say. Hey!
Bbm                 Gb       Db     Ab
The screams all sound the same. Hey!
                   Bbm        Gb         
'Cause though the truth may vary
    Db           Ab
This ship will carry
      Bbm    Gb        Db     Ab
Our bodies safe to shore

Verse 3
Bbm
You're gone, gone, gone away. I watched you disappear
Bbm 
All that's left is a ghost of you
Bbm
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart, there's nothing we can do. 
Bbm
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon.
Bbm               Gb              Db 
Now wait, wait, wait for me. Please hang around
Bbm         Gb            Db      Ab
I see you when I fall asleep. Hey!

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.
