Verse:
E                     Dbm
There is not a single word
             E
In the whole world 
                        Dbm
That could describe the hurt
                       A
The dullest knife just sawing back and forth
                    B
Ripping through the softest skin there ever was 
                A
How were you to know? 
                B
How were you to know? 

Chorus:
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before

Verse:
E                    Dbm
Love happens all the time
                     E
To people who aren't kind
                   Dbm
And heroes who are blind
                  A
Expecting perfect scripted movie scenes
                     B
Who wants an awkward silence mystery?
                A
How were you to know? 
                B
How were you to know?

Chorus:
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B                                A
But I've been there before

Verse:
            Dbm                 B                 A
For all the air that's in your lungs
            Dbm             B
For all the joy that is to come 
                        A
For all the things that you're alive to feel
                    B
Just let the pain remind you hearts can heal
                A
How were you to know? 
                B
How were you to know?

Chorus:
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before

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.
