Verse:
BbBb chord    DmDm chord   CmCm chord   
Hear my voice
        GmGm chord        FF chord        EbEb chord
I came out of the woods by choice

Shelter also gave us shade

I find it hard to live in the truth

But do not tell me all is fine
                GmGm chord       FF chord       EbEb chord
When I lose my head, I lose my spine

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.
