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

Chorus
                   Am        F         
'Cause though the truth may vary
    C           G
This ship will carry
      Am    F        C 
Our bodies safe to shore

Am - F - C - G
            Hey!
Am - F - C - G
            Hey!

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

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

Am - F - C - G

Verse 3
Am
You're gone, gone, gone away. I watched you disappear
Am 
All that's left is a ghost of you
Am
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart, there's nothing we can do. 
Am
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon.
Am               F              C 
Now wait, wait, wait for me. Please hang around
Am         F            C      G
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.
