Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
hey this is in the key of F instead of C (like the others on this site) 
it should be much better if ur looking for an easier version! Its just
the same and as good! I recommend playing it this way. (o:

[Verse]
Am            F                        C   
You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
                G 
You were always crazy like that
Am                F 
I watched from my window,
                  C                G     
always felt I was outside looking in on you
          Am 
You were always the mysterious one 
     F
with dark eyes and careless hair, 
          C                             G
You were fashionably sensitive, but too cool to care 
         Am          F                       C
Then you stood in my doorway, with nothing to say 
             G
besides some comment on the weather


[Bridge]

         Dm
Well in case you failed to notice, 
    F
In case you failed to see, 
C   
This is my heart bleeding before you, 
G
This is me down on my knees


[Chorus]
F             G        C   G      F 
These foolish games are tearing me apart
F                 G         C     G      F 
You’re thoughtless words are breaking my heart
                Am 
You're breaking my heart


[Verse]
                Am               F
You were always brilliant in the morning
             C           G
Smoking your cigarettes, talking over coffee 
          Am                       F
You philosophies on art, Baroque moved you, 
                            C 
You loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones
      G
As I clumsily strummed my guitar 
Am
You'd teach me of honest things 
F
Things that were daring, things that were clean 
C                                 G
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean 
      Am                           F
So I hid my soiled hands behind my back 
C                                    G
Somewhere along the line I must've gone off track with you


[Bridge]
Dm                                     F
Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else 
C
Somebody who gave a damn, 
G
Somebody more like myself


[Chorus]
F             G        C   G      F 
These foolish games are tearing me apart
F                 G         C     G      F 
You’re thoughtless words are breaking my heart
                Am 
You're breaking my heart

DFCG

D             F                        C
You took your coat off and stood in the rain, 
                            G
you were always crazy like that…

You should probably mention that if you want it to sound like the original version, to put a capo on the fifth fret.

"tearing me apart" in the chorus should be an Am, not F

FWIW, with a capo on the 1st fret this works to play along with the "Official Video" on YouTube. Also note that the 2nd half of the 2nd verse as shown here is not included on that video.
