Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The song consists basically of three chords. 
Here is the standard way of playing them:

Bm: x24432
D:  xx0323
A:  x02220


In acoustic/live versions he uses variations of these for the verses with more elaborate fingerings 
(as can be seen here, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5c9Px0worqA).

This is the basic outline of the song:


[Verse]

Bm  A  D
Bm  A 
(last line of each verse)


[Chorus]

D  Bm  A

Each chord is played for two bars!
Timing as indicated.

             Bm
do you wanna dance?
A                           D
  fine. but do you remember when
        Bm
in your living room
        A                                          D
when we made some room & moved ourselves around in it?
                   Bm
it's how my heart resumed.
A                                      D
i got caught/ you got those caravaggio moves
            Bm                                        A
we had some good ideas but we never left that fucking room

             Bm
do you wanna talk?
A                                D
  fine. i'll talk it out with my dad
            Bm
it's always nice what he says
                 A                                      D
he'll have some good advice from something in a book he read
      Bm                                     A
if i did what i wanted then why do i feel so bad?

                  Bm
would you like a drink
A                         D
  while we wait for everything
       Bm
to get good again?
      A                                    D
we're good at things & so are a lot of our friends
          Bm                                         A
we should all be rich & making moves like nancy kerrigan, yea


[Chorus]

            D
i dont know what
      Bm
i'm afraid of
     A
but i'm afraid
           D
one day it all
           Bm
will fall away
        A
maybe i read that
                 D
but still, let's see
   Bm                               A
if nothing else it's an idle curiosity

                       Bm
so would you like that drink?
A                                   D
  fine, yea i know. i remember that too
        Bm
in your living room, right?
          A                                    D
when we began to fight but then we both got confused
              Bm                                         A
then we were laughing & crying in awe of the size of the moon

                Bm
do you want to die?
A
  fine you're right
                     D
but i wonder what it feels like
               Bm
to stop feelin so alive
                 A                                              D
what if we could wake up in five years and things'd be feelin alright?
         Bm                                      A
i wanna visit the future and dance in a field of light!


[Chorus]

            D
i dont know what
      Bm
i'm afraid of
     A
but i'm afraid
           D
one day it all
           Bm
will fall away
        A
maybe i read that
                 D
but still, let's see
   Bm                               A
if nothing else it's an idle curiosity

instead of "we should all be rich & making moves like nancy kerrigan, yea"
the lyrics actually are " you should forget these seatbacks and get back moving again"
