Intro: D

D          A     D                  G
Your love is like finger nails on a chalkboard
D          A      D               G    
Your love is like throwing myself overboard
D                A
A breakdown on a motorway
Bm               G
A heart attack on Christmas day
E
Like scaling a cliff then falling off
G
Like trying not to cough


G                                         Gb 
And I didn’t see this one coming, now I’m in too deep
G                                     Gb
I didn’t see this one coming, now I’m in too deep
G                               D
I think I’ll just keep swimming down, down, down
G                             D 
There’s no point in trying to turn back now


G           D
I’m drowned
G           A
I’m drowned


D          A      D             G
Your love is like sand inside a bathing suit
D          A      D             G
Your love is a symphony with the sound on mute
D               A  
A letter to the wrong address
Bm               G
Or red wine on a wedding dress
E
Like broken bones in my playing hand
G
Like trying to swallow sand


G                                         Gb 
And I didn’t see this one coming, now I’m in too deep
G                                     Gb
I didn’t see this one coming, now I’m in too deep
G                               D
I think I’ll just keep swimming down, down, down
G                             D 
There’s no point in trying to reach dry ground


G           D
I’m drowned
G           A
I’m drowned


D          A       D                 G            
Your love is like one last breath of salty air
D          A       D                 G
Your love is like a map that leads to nowhere
D                  A  
A wine glass on a concrete floor
Bm             G
The overuse of metaphor
E
The straight ahead in a sideways glance
G
Like the misstep in a dance


G                                         Gb 
And I didn’t see this one coming, now I’m in too deep
G                                     Gb
I didn’t see this one coming, now I’m in too deep
G                               D
I think I’ll just keep swimming down
G                        D 
There’s no point in turning 'round


G           D
I’m drowned
G           D
I’m drowned

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.
