G                  B7                Em 
I heard you said that words are deadly things?
            C              Cm           G       D7 
I was surprised to find myself alive and breathing
       G                          B7                   Em                                          
I said I know it's tough but I'm growing up; and your love, it just ain't 
Cm
good enough, 
         G    Em       C    D7    G
so I'm taking back my heart for me. 
        G         B7             Em 
I was lured into every word you speak.          
                 C              Cm               G          D7             
Yeah when I was young you could tie my tongue and weaken my knees, 
        G                       B7             Em                Cm 
But the lines been drawn and I'm moving on. Another girl would come 
              G      Em       C  D7    G         G7
along, so I'm taking back my heart for me.
 C                                  D7                     G 
This is the end of the road this is where we part, you can keep all your 
                 Em
memories but I'm taking my heart.
        C                 D7                G G7 
Turns out being away is a wonderful way to be.
          C                           D7                  G 
I'm going back to the earth, back to open doors, back to beach boys records 
   Cm
and minor 4's  
          G       Em     C      D7 G
Cause I'm taking back my heart for me.
 
   G                  B7               Em       G7
I heard you said that words are deadly things?
           C               Cm           G         D7 
I was surprised to find myself alive and breathing
          G                      B7                    Em             
I said I know it's tough but I'm growing up; and your love,
              Cm
it just ain't good enough,
        G      Em      C    D7  G
so I'm taking back my heart for me.

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.
