Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
  I've been listening to this song for a while now and finally sat down to 
figure out just how it goes.  I am damn near 100 percent that this is 
perfect, sat here watching his video and mucking about with it until it 
sounded just right to MY ear, at least.

  And, of course, this is my first tab :P

The verses kind of switch back and forth from picked to strummed, the 
pre-chorus is bar chords, the chorus switches back.  I think I made it 
pretty clear, but then again I did write it out so what works for me may not 
for you.  Hope this helps you out, there are not near enough tabs out there 
for Jay Brannan's incredible songs.

one hand or the other, the butter or the bread knife?
D               Bm               A         G
do you choose winter, spring, summer, or fall?

D                Bm                    A
   if these walls could talk, they'd probably cry out for mercy
D                Bm                    A
   'til i'm outlined in chalk, i'll be romantically thirsty

why can't i sit down and write,
G             A
bring this question to light?

do you want a lover, or do you want a life?

one hand or the other, the butter or the bread knife?

do you choose winter, spring, summer, or fall?

D                                 Bm                    A
and if it's in my hands, are you sure it should be in brittle hands
      G
like these?
D                Bm             A         G
life, love, and the pursuit of all the things they promised me
D                Bm                  A              G

one hand or the other, the butter or the bread knife?

do you choose winter, spring, summer, or fall?

This is just about perfect. I think The only things is he plays more than one note at a time. Like so:
e|--------0--------------------0---------------0-----|
B|----3-------3-------------3------3-------2-------2-|
G|--------2-------2-----4------4-------2-------2-----|
D|----0-------0-------------4------4-------2--------2|
A|----------------0-----2--------------0-------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|
