Intro: C  G  F  C  G

C
Hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground, oh oh   
G
Only sound, only sound that you hear is no
F
You never saw it coming, slipped when you started running
    C
And now you've come undone, I I I
C     
Seen you fall, seen you crawl on your knees, eh-eh   
G    
Seen you lost in a crowd, seen your colors fade   
F     
Wish I could make it better, someday you won’t remember   
C                                G                       
This pain you thought would last forever and ever   
   

D                       
There you’ll stand, 10 feet tall   
A    
I will say, I knew it all along   
G    
Your eyes, wider than distance   
Bm                   A    
This life is sweeter than fiction   


C
Just a shot, just a shot in the dark oh oh
G
All you got, all you got are you shattered hopes,
F
They never saw it coming, you hit the ground running
C
And now you're onto something, I I I say
C
What a sight, what a sight when the light came on
G
Proved me right, proved me right, when you prove them wrong
F
And in this perfect weather is like when don't remember
C                               G    
The rain you thought would last forever and ever  
 
   
D                       
There you’ll stand, 10 feet tall   
A    
I will say, I knew it all along   
G    
Your eyes, wider than distance   
Bm                   A    
This life is sweeter than fiction   
D    
There you stand, next to me   
A    
All I want the rest is history   
G    
Your eyes are brighter than kisses   
Bm                   A    
This life is sweeter than fiction   
   
Interlude: D  A  G  Bm  A
 
D                               Bm
I’ll be one of the many saying, look at you now, look at you now, now   
G     
I’ll be one of the many saying,   
A    
You've made us proud, you’ve made us proud   
D    
I’ll be one of the many saying   
Bm   
Look at you now, look at you now, now   
G    
I’ll be one of the many saying   
A    
You’ve made us proud, you’ve made us proud   
D                                     Bm
And when they call your name and they put your picture in a frame   
                  G    
You’ll know that I’ll be there in time & again   
        A    
Cause I loved you then   
   

         D    
When you hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground, oh oh   
A                                            Bm   
Only sound, only sound that you heard was no, now in this perfect weather   
                                D
It’s like we don’t remember the rain we thought would last forever and ever   
   

D                       
There you’ll stand, 10 feet tall   
A    
I will say, I knew it all along   
G    
Your eyes, wider than distance   
Bm               A    
This life is sweeter than fiction   
D    
There you stand, next to me   
A    
All I want the rest is history   
G    
Your eyes, wider than distance   
Bm               A                D
This life is sweeter than fiction   
              A                  G 
Sweeter than fiction, is sweeter than    
             Bm          A            -D-
Is sweeter than, sweeter, sweeter than fiction

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.
