Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
To play with the studio version, capo 2.  
Or transpose it, but going from an Abm to a C#m isn't cake.  
Isn't hard, either, if you just use power chords.

[Verse 1]
  F#m                                   Bm
As I walk through the streets of my new city
   E                              A
my back feeling much better, I suppose
      F#m                       Bm
I've reclaimed the use of my imagination
    E                               A
for better or for worse, I've yet to know
    F#m                                Bm
but I always knew you'd be the one to understand me,
                E                             A   
I guess that's why it took so long to get things right.
F#m
Suddenly I'm lost
       Bm
On my street, On my block
   E
Oh why, Oh why
   A               D
Oh why haven't you been there for me?
          E                 A          
Can't you see, I'm losing my mind this time?
F#m                Bm
This time it's for real, I can see
E      
All the trees are turning red
The beggars near bodegas grin at me
I think they want something       E
I close my eyes, I tell myself to breathe

[Chorus]
       A
And be calm. Be calm.
           D                          A
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
       F#m          B              D  
Well I know that it gets so hard sometimes.
   E
Be calm.

[Verse 2]
  F#m                              Bm
I'm scared that everyone is out to get me.
       E                             A  
"These days before you speak to me you pause."
  F#m                              Bm
"I always see you looking out your window."
    E                                      A  
"After all, you lost your band, you left your mom."
    F#m                        Bm
Now every single crack, every pain that I pass,
     E                                A  
says I should either leave or pick it up
    F#m
But with every single buck I've made
    Bm
I'm saddled with bad luck that came
    E
the moment I was baptized
                                       E
or when I found out one day I'm gonna die
if only I could find my people or my place in life
then when they come to 'carolin'
so loud, so bright, the theremin
will lead us to a chorus                     E
where we'll all rejoice and sing a song that goes:

[Chorus]
       A
And be calm. Be calm.
           D                          A
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
       F#m          B              D  
Well I know that it gets so hard sometimes.
   E
Be calm.
             A                              C#m
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
              F#m
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
   F#m                Bm  
and everything's wrong
        D                Bm
It just gets so hard sometimes
   E
Be calm.

[Verse 3]
  F#m     E      C#m       Bm
I don't remember much that night,
     A         E       A       E 
Just walking, thinking fondly of you
 F#m     E       C#m       Bm    A
Thinking how the worst is yet to come
E                A      E     A
From that street corner came a song
    A             D
And I can't remember the man,
    E                 A  
The panhandler or his melody.
    F#m     E           C#m    Bm      E
The words exchanged had far exceeded any change I'd given thee. 

[Chorus]
       A
And be calm. Be calm.
           D                          A
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
       F#m          B              D  
Well I know that it gets so hard sometimes.
   E
Be calm.
             A                              C#m
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
              F#m
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
   F#m                Bm  
and everything's wrong
        D                Bm
It just gets so hard sometimes
   E       F#m
Be calm.   Be calm.
