Verse:
BbBb chord                       DmDm chord    GmGm chord    FF chord  
   I'm tired of waking up in tears
BbBb chord                       DmDm chord       GmGm chord           EbEb chord
   Cause I can't put to bed these phobias and fears
BbBb chord                            DmDm chord       GmGm chord   FF chord  
   I'm new to this grief, I can't explain
BbBb chord                       DmDm chord    GmGm chord                 EbEb chord
   But I'm no stranger to, the heartache and the pain

Pre-Chorus:
FF chord           GmGm chord         BbBb chord           EbEb chord
   The fire I began is burning me alive
FF chord             GmGm chord              AbAb chord              FF chord
   But I know better than to leave and let it die

Chorus:
        BbBb chord   DmDm chord           GmGm chord              EbEb chord
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
       BbBb chord   DmDm chord         GmGm chord           EbEb chord
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
       BbBb chord    DmDm chord            GmGm chord              EbEb chord
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
        CmCm chord            FF chord             BbBb chord     FF chord     GmGm chord  BbBb chord  
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
      EbEb chord               EbmEbm chord              
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home

Verse:
BbBb chord                        DmDm chord      GmGm chord  FF chord  
   I'm sick of the past I can't erase
BbBb chord                             DmDm chord     GmGm chord            EbEb chord
   a jumble of footprints, and hasty steps I can't retrace
BbBb chord                          DmDm chord      GmGm chord   FF chord  
   The mountain of things I still regret
BbBb chord                          DmDm chord      GmGm chord            EbEb chord
   Is a vile reminder that I would rather just forget -No matter where I go-

Pre-Chorus:
FF chord           GmGm chord         BbBb chord           EbEb chord
   The fire I began is burning me alive

   But I know better than to leave and let it die

Chorus:
        BbBb chord   DmDm chord           GmGm chord              EbEb chord
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
       BbBb chord   DmDm chord         GmGm chord            EbEb chord
Is it over yet? Will I ever smile again?
       BbBb chord    DmDm chord            GmGm chord              EbEb chord
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own

So I watch the summer stars to lead me home

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.
