There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I hear it's played in A with a capo on the first fret. You can play it this way if 
you just transpose a step down, but if you are ambitious you might like this tab, 
I created it for the piano. Enjoy!

 I always knew

 We were meant to be more than friends 
              Bb 
 When you're near,

 I hear your name

 ringing up and down the line 
  Eb       F#               Bb          Gm7 
 I'm saying it plain: 
  Cm            F       Bb    .    Gm7  .  Cm7  
 These ties are strong enough to bind 
  
  F              Bb     F    Bb    F 
 Your sweet voice 
  Eb         Bb        Eb       F      Bb 
 calls out from some old familiar shrine

 I got no choice,

  have to make a fuss over me 
  
  F              Bb     F    Bb    F 
 From east to west 
  Eb         Bb        Eb       F      Bb 
 ever since the world began 
  Eb       F#               Bb          Gm7 
 I only mean it for the best 
  Cm            F       Bb    .    Gm7  .  Cm7  
 I won't be with you any way I can

 I've been in a brawl 
  Eb         Bb        Eb       F      Bb 
 Now I'm feeling the wall 
  Eb       F#               Bb          Gm7 
 I'm going away, baby

 High on the hill

 You know my will

 This love could tear me in two 
  
  G 
   I won't be with you in paradise 
  Cm 
   and it seems so unfair 
  D7          Gm  
  I can't go to paradise no more, 
  C9                             F7sus4/B      F7  
  I killed a man back there 
  
  F              Bb     F    Bb    F 
 You think I'm over the hill 
  Eb         Bb        Eb       F      Bb 
 Think I'm past my prime
