Verse 1:
B          E       Abm                     Gb
I used to shut my door while my mother screamed in the kitchen
B         E        Abm               Gb
I'd turn the music up, get high and try not to listen
B                 E            Abm              Gb
To every little fight, 'cause neither one was right

Pre-Chorus:
B                        E
I swore I'd never be like them
    Abm                    Gb
But I was just a kid back then

Chorus:
            E                  Gb
The older I get the more that I see
                    B                      Abm
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
              E                     Gb
And loving is hard, it don't always work
                  B               Abm
You just try your best not to get hurt
             E              Gb
I used to be mad but now I know
               B               Abm
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
               E
It just hadn't hit me yet
             B
The older I get

Verse 2:
          E       Abm                 Gb
I used to wonder why, why they could never be happy
B         E        Abm                  Gb
I used to close my eyes and pray for a whole 'nother family
       B               E     Abm               Gb
Where everything was fine, one that felt like mine

Pre-Chorus:
B                        E
I swore I'd never be like them
    Abm                    Gb
But I was just a kid back then

Chorus:
            E                  Gb
The older I get the more that I see
                    B                      Abm
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
              E                     Gb
And loving is hard, it don't always work
                  B               Abm
You just try your best not to get hurt
             E              Gb
I used to be mad but now I know
               B               Abm
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
               E
It just hadn't hit me yet
             B
The older I get

Chorus:
            E                  Gb
The older I get the more that I see
                    B                      Abm
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
              E                     Gb
And loving is hard, it don't always work
                  B               Abm
You just try your best not to get hurt
             E              Gb
I used to be mad but now I know
               B               Abm
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
               E
It just hadn't hit me yet
             B
The older I get

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.
