Verse:
BbBb chord                    FF chord     
Step one you say we need to talk
    GmGm chord                 FF chord        FF chord      BbBb chord
He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
             FF chord             GmGm chord
He smiles politely back at you
             FF chord       FF chord        BbBb chord
You stare politely right on through
               FF chord            GmGm chord
Some sort of window to your right
             FF chord       FF chord        BbBb chord
As he goes left and you stay right
              FF chord               GmGm chord
Between the lines of fear and blame
                   FF chord     FF chord         
And you begin to wonder why you came
 
Chorus:
  EbEb chord             FF chord                GmGm chord
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            BbBb chord             FF chord  
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    EbEb chord                   FF chord                GmGm chord
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             BbBb chord             FF chord  
Had I known how to save a life
 
Verse -same as first-:
Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you’ve told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
 
Chorus:
  EbEb chord             FF chord                GmGm chord
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            BbBb chord             FF chord  
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    EbEb chord                   FF chord                GmGm chord
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             BbBb chord             FF chord  
Had I known how to save a life
 
Verse -same as first-:
As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you’ve followed
He will do one of two things 
He will admit to everything
Or he’ll say he’s just not the same
And you’ll begin to wonder why you came
 
Chorus:
  EbEb chord             FF chord                GmGm chord
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            BbBb chord             FF chord  
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    EbEb chord                   FF chord                GmGm chord
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             BbBb chord             FF chord  
Had I known how to save a life

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 "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick.
