There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a gorgeous song, played in 6/4 time, very slowly.
Forgive the funny spacing, I've tried to lay out the chords in correspondence
to the words.  You really have to hear the song to get it precise though.


C  Fm  C  Fm
C  Am  G  C

[Verse 1]

C    Fm    
So be it I'm your crowbar
C             Fm
If that's what I am so far
C          Am   G       C
Until you get out of this mess
C          Fm
And I will pretend
C                 Fm
That I don't know of your sins
C           Am     G      F
Until you are ready to confess


F          Dm   Fm  D
But all the time, all the time
C       F      C      F
I'll know, I'll know
C           Fm
And you can use my skin
C       Fm
To bury secrets in
C      Am  G          C
And I will settle you down
C         Fm
And at my own suggestion
C      Fm
I will ask no questions
C              A          G     F
While I do my thing in the background
F           Dm   Fm  D
But all the time, all the time
C        F     C     F
I'll know, I'll know


E   Am  (two measures each chord)

E                       Am
Baby -- I can't help you out
F                 C    
While she's still around
C    Fm       C  
So for the time being
C    Fm    C  Am  G  C
I'm being patient
C            Fm
And amidst this bitterness
C               Fm
If you'll just consider this
C         Am      G     F
Even if it don't make sense
Dm       Fm      D 
All the time, give it time
C             Fm          C     
And when the crowd becomes your burden
     Fm                        C
And you've early closed your curtain
      Am          G        C
I'll wait by the backstage door
C         Fm 
While you try to find
C        Fm
The lines to speak your mind
C                 Am    G      F
And pry it open hoping for an encore
          Dm           Fm     D  
And if it gets too late for me to wait
C                    E            C  
For you to find you love me, and tell me so
Am    D   F            G   
It's ok, don't need to say it...


C  Fm  (six measures, ending on C)

One footnote... There's an A in there that should be an Am. Actually, ALL the A's are minors in this tune. And the outro is C, and F major, not F minor. Sorry!

If I may add a second footnote, I'm pretty sure the "all the time, all the time" chords are actually "F-Dm-F7-D7" instead of going to Fm and D major at the end. The dominant seven provides that "minor feel without actually being minor" that shows up there.
