Verse 1:
C
The great protector
                             Em7
Is that what I'm supposed to be?
        Fmaj7
What if all this counts for nothing
                          Gbm   
Everything…I…thought I'd be?
         G7
What…if by the time I realize
         G7sus4         G7
It's…too far behind to see?
C
Seventy-mil projector
                      Em7
I can show you everything, yeah
          Fmaj7
And we're on our way to glory
                          Gbm   
Where the show won't ever end

Spending the years together
                    Em7
Growing older every day -Every day-
          Fmaj7
I feel at home when I'm around you
                     Gbm   
And I'll gladly say again
           G7
I hope the encore lasts forever

And it's sublime with you, my friend
C
This right here still feels like a honeymoon
                Em7
When you say my name, nothing's changed
                          Fmaj7
I'm still a boy inside my thoughts
              Gbm           G7
Am I meant to understand my faults?

Chorus:
                C
I don't think so
                                       Em7
I don't think I'm meant to understand myself
E7sus2    Fmaj7
Maybe you do

And that's good for you
Gbm      G7
Maybe in time
          G7sus4
Maybe one day
G7           C
I'll do the same
        Em7
ooo OOO ooo

Bridge:
            Fmaj7
I'll do the same as you

       Dm7
Soon I hope
              D7             Gm7   Gbmaj7   Fmaj7

Stay forever, you know more than anyone -Yeah, whoa-
         Cm7
And it's you that knows my darkness

And you know my bedroom needs
          Bbmaj7
You could blast me and my secrets
                                 Bb7
Because there's probably just no need

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.
