This is what I use for the picking parts (intro, verses and pre-chorus).
I know it is not exactly how it's played on guitar but it sounds right for me,
and hopefully for you guys too.
For the chorus I play the chords with only downstrokes as seen in the strumming pattern.


Main picking pattern
    Am            F        C
A|-0---0----2--1--0----|-3------3----3--2--0-----|  This pattern over the intro, verses and pre-chorus.
E|-0-----0--0-----1----|-0---0--0-------0--0-----|  Every line of singing is 1 time the picking pattern,
G|----0-------------0--|---0-------0-------------|  over and over.
C|-2--------2-----2----|-0------0----------------|

Picking pattern outro
   Am        F        C
A|-0---------0-------|-3---------3--2--0-----|  The outro is nice and simple, the timing might be hard
E|-0---------1-------|-0------------0--0-----|  to explain but if you listen to the music first it
G|-------------------|-----------------------|  should be easy to figure out.
C|-2---------2-------|-0---------------------|


[Intro]
Am F C
Am F C

[Verse]
Am           F        C
Walking down 29th and Park
Am         F            C
 I saw you in another’s arms
Am       F               C
 Only a month we’ve been apart
         Am        F     C
You look happier

Am       F             C
 Saw you walk inside a bar
Am            F                C 
 He said something to make you laugh
Am          F                      C
 I saw that both your smiles were twice as wide as ours
               Am     F         C
Yeah, you look happier, you do

[Pre-Chorus]
Am           F               C
Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you
     Am          F               C
But ain’t nobody love you like I do
Am             F                C
Promise that I will not take it personal baby
Am                F               C
 If you’re moving on with someone new

[Chorus]
                    Am      F    C
Cause baby you look happier, you do
                       Am       F       C
My friends told me one day I’ll feel it too
                    Am       F        C
and until then I'll smile to hide the truth
                 Am     F     C       
But I know I was happier with you 

[Verse]
Am          F             C
 Sat on the corner of the room
Am              F             C
 Everything’s reminding me of you
Am          F     C                                Am
 Nursing an empty bottle and telling myself you’re happier
F       C         
 Aren’t you? 

[Pre-chorus]
Am             F              C
 Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you
     Am          F               C 
But ain’t nobody need you like I do
Am                  F             C
I know that there’s others that deserve you
        Am           F                  C
But my darling, I am still in love with you

[Chorus]
                     Am     F     C
But I guess you look happier, you do
                       Am       F       C   
My friends told me one day I’ll feel it too
               Am       F        C
I could try to smile to hide the truth
                 Am     F     C
But I know I was happier with you

Am      F             C     
  Hey-ya hey-yeah hey-yeah   x4

[Outro]
               Am      F    C
Baby, you look happier, you do
                     Am       F       C
I knew one day you’d fall for someone new
                      Am         F      C
But if he breaks your heart like lovers do
                       Am          F    C
Just know that I’ll be waiting here for you

What does the strumming part mean (1, 3, 5) ?

Is there finger picking in this song? If so what is it?
