Intro -x2-: Em D Bm C

Verse:
Em                          D
What are the words that I'm supposed to say?
Bm                             C
Your white skin, swirling fireflies.
Em                          D
Darkness has surrounded Baltimore bay.
Bm                           C
Why don't you open your blue eyes?
Em                               D
Are they things that water can't wash away?
G                              C
How can your absence leave no trace?
Em                        D
As I let you sink in Baltimore bay.
G                         C
I drown myself deep in disgrace.

Interlude -x2-: Em D G C

Verse:
Em                            D
What is the price, am I supposed to pay?
G                            C
For all the things I try to hide?
Em                          D
What is my fate, am I supposed to pray?
G                                C
That trouble's gone with the sunlight?

Interlude -x2-: Em D G C

Verse:
Gbm                             E
A warm sun rises and ignites the bay.
A                             D
I come back home and start to cry
Gbm                         E
I'll never come back to Baltimore bay.
A                      D
Try to forget the fireflies.
Gbm                             E
What are the words that I'm supposed to say?
A                          D
If someone knew about this lie?
Gbm                       E
If your body rises to the surface?
A                          D
Through the silence of fireflies

    Gbm E A D -x2-

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.
