Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Capo:1

These chords are almost 100% correct, because I've watched her play this song. The intro begins
with an Em then a C, to do the next chord you'll have to slide up to the third fret and do a
C there too. I don't know what that chord is called so i'll just write it this way C (third fret).
After doing a C on the third fret, put your pinky finger on the last sting, the E
string, I'll call that chord C*. Then you play a few notes on the same E string so keep your
pinky on the E string but slide down to the third and second fret and play on those notes
(G and F#). That's the first part of the intro. On the second part you do the same thing but
with some minor changes, slide up to the third fret and play the C(third fret)
lift all your fingers of the fretboard except for your pointer finger and your pinky
slide them down to the 5th fret keeping the same position play those on
notes, then slide down to
third fret without lifting your pinky finger and play the G note. So that's how you do the
intro.

Intro ( just read my instructions )

Verse 1

Em          C
I have this sinking feeling
C(third fret)
Something's weighing me down
Em   C          C(third fret)
I am completely saturated
Em            C
The waves are crashing closer
C(third fret)
My feet already drowned
Em        C              C(third fret)
Doing the thing I said I hated

Pre-chorus
Em            C               G     D
They¡¦ve been swimming in the wrong waters
Em          C          D
Now they're pulling me down
Em        C                G             D
But I  am clinging to you, never letting go
Em         C           D
Cos I know that you'll lift me out

Chorus
Am        Em
Have your way here
   G       D
To keep me afloat
Am      Em
'cause I know
     G            D
I'll sink without you
Am        Em
Take this ocean of
G           D
pain that is mine
Am         D
Throw me a lifeline

Intro played once

Verse
Wake up feeling convicted
I know somethings not right
Re-acquaint my knees with the carpet
I have to get this out
Cos it's obstructing you and I
Dry up the seas that keep us parted

Pre-chorus
Em            C               G     D
They¡¦ve been swimming in the wrong waters
Em          C          D
Now they're pulling me down
Em        C                G             D
But I  am clinging to you, never letting go
Em         C           D
Cos I know that you'll lift me out


Chorus

Pre-chorus (strum once)
Em            C               G     D
They¡¦ve been swimming in the wrong waters
Em          C          D
Now they're pulling me down
Em        C                G             D
But I  am clinging to you, never letting go
Em         C           D
Cos I know that you'll lift me out
 Em    C          G            D
'Cos I know-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-wo-wo-oh..

Just describing the chord isn't really adequate... especially since the barre chord for C *is* on the third fret! Still had to go to the video to work out the song by myself.
