Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Capo 4

For the verses the chords are played by fingerpicking as below.
In the pre-chorus and chorus, it is all strummed.

At the end of choruses some chords are played with the little finger on the third fret of the top e string. 
(or g# if you want to look at it that way)

I've missed some of the detail of the chords in the last few sections,
if you can make them out then feel free to use this as a base to add to.


[Intro]

     C          Cadd9/B     Am          F           C          Cadd9/B     Am           F

[Verse 1]

              C       Cadd9/B   
  I hate this stage
Am                F           C      Cadd9/B  Am   F
  doesn't get any easier with age
             C        Cadd9/B
 I hate this time
Am      F              C     Cadd9/B    Am   F
  separating yours and mine


[Verse 2]

      C      Cadd9/B Am    F
We begin the process of 
C    Cadd9/B   Am     F
Deconstructing love
        C    Cadd9/B   
and commit
Am        F                     C    Cadd9/B   Am   F
  To the next few months being shit


[Pre-chorus]

         G                                 F    C  
And the things you can't keep out of your head
      G                      F       G
Like maybe I was never that good in bed


[Chorus]

            C
But things fall apart
     Cadd9/B         Am                     F
They come apart just like they've done before
C              Cadd9/B        Am                   F
Fall apart and come apart and leave you on the floor
       C              Cadd9/B                Am                     F
Things fall apart and come apart but they'll get built back once more
             C                  Cadd9/B              F                 G    C    Cadd9/B
So call your friends and grab a glass and toast dead ends and this too will pass
Am         F        C    Cadd9/B    Am    F
  and this too will pass


[Verse 3]

             C     Cadd9/B
Concentrated love
Am           F               C         Cadd9/B   Am   
  I guess we never spread it thin enough 
F                   C     Cadd9/B
 So take care of yourself
Am             F                   C         Cadd9/B Am      F 
  and get that heartbreak handbook down from off the shelf


[Pre-chorus]

        G                                  F    C
And the things you can't keep out of your head
     G                      F       C
Like maybe I was never that good in bed
        G                             F     C
And the things you just don't want to know
     G                             F     G
Like maybe this is always how it's gonna go


[Chorus]

            C
Things fall apart
    Cadd9/B         Am                     F
And come apart just like they've done before
C              Cadd9/B        Am                   F
Fall apart and come apart and leave you on the floor
       C               Cadd9/B                Am                     F
Things fall apart they come apart but they'll get built back once more
             C                  Cadd9/B              F                 G    C       Cadd9/B
So call your friends and grab a glass and toast dead ends and this too will pass
Am         F        C    Cadd9/B    Am    F
  and this too will pass


[Bridge]

        F                                 G
And the things you can't keep out of your head
     Am                             D7
Like maybe I was never that good in bed
          F                              G
And don't ask yourself don't even try to find out why the battle ran dry
       Am                                  D7                                F
We can search until the day we die but the answers   are as close to you and I
G                     C     Cadd9/B    Am
  As the stars in the sky


[Chorus]

F            C
  Why things fall apart
    Cadd9/B         Am                     F
And come apart just like they've done before
C              Cadd9/B        Am                   F
Fall apart they come apart and leave you on the floor
       C               Cadd9/B                Am                     F
Things fall apart they come apart but they'll get built back once more
             C                  Cadd9/B              F                 G    C
So call your friends and grab a glass and toast dead ends and this too will fall apart
    Cadd9/B         Am                     F
And come apart just like they've done before
C              Cadd9/B        Am                   F
Fall apart and come apart and leave you on the floor
       C               Cadd9/B                Am                     F
Things fall apart they come apart but they'll get built back once more
             C                  Cadd9/B              F                   F
So call your friends and grab a glass and toast dead ends, Don't lose the past
          Am                 Em                   F                 G     C
Call your friends and grab a glass and toast dead ends and this too will pass
