Intro:
          C       E
You're my painkiller
        Am             F
When my brain gets bitter
            Dm
You keep me close
            F  E
You keep me close

Verse 1:
      Cmaj7
I got front row seats for the park side livin'
  Bb
Feel like the one but I'm one in a billion
Fmaj7               Bb
Teenage cynical and I don't really know
C
What's the point of living if my heart gets broken?
  Bb
Driving on the road, waiting for head-on collision
F                                      Bb
Springtime funeral, I miss you but I'd rather be alone

Pre-Chorus:
-nc-
To keep me from
Cmaj7
Heartbreaks, headaches

The doctor says I' m diagnosed with
C7
xxxx days, mistakes
              Fmaj7
But I'll be fine
              Bb7
But I' ll be fine

Chorus:
                 Cmaj7
'Cause you're my painkiller
        Bb
When my brain gets bitter
            F
You keep me close
               Bb7
When I've been miserable
       Am
And it takes forever
          C
To let my brain get better
            F
You keep me close
            Bb
You keep me close

Verse 2:
C
Window seats as the plane starts leavin'
 Bb
Miss those streets where my knees were bleedin'
F
Homesick veteran
  Bb
I left my bed again

Oh, looking for

Pre-Chorus:
Cmaj7
Heartbreaks, headaches

The doctor says I' m diagnosed with
Bb
xxxx days, mistakes
              Fmaj7
But I'll be fine
              Bb7
But I' ll be fine

Chorus:
                 Cmaj7
'Cause you're my painkiller
        Bb
When my brain gets bitter
            F
You keep me close
               Bb7
When I've been miserable
       Am
And it takes forever
          C
To let my brain get better
            F
You keep me close
            Bb
You keep me close

Bridge:
C               Bbmaj7                     F

You give me a reason to keep on breathin'

Chorus:
                 Cmaj7
'Cause you're my painkiller

When my brain gets bitter

You keep me close
               Bb7
When I've been miserable
       Am
And it takes forever
          C
To let my brain get better
            F
You keep me close
            Bb
You keep me close

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.
