The strumming you should know if you like the song. 
Its down, up, down. Just repeat this. 
There was another tab for this, but I thought it was terrible. I'm sure this is much better.
 Many thanks, Adam.

         E                       B                      E
(Breathe)I wish I could cross my arms, and cross your mind

                        B                F#                             E
Cause I believe you'd unfold your paper heart and wear it on your sleeve

                            B                        E
All my life I wish I broke mirrors, instead of promises

                       B                    F#                     
Cause all I see, is a shattered conscience staring right back at me

E                            B                          E   
I wish I had covered all my tracks completely cause I'm so afraid

                          B             F#                             
Is that the light at the far end of the tunnel or just the train?

E                          B                     
Lift your arms only heaven knows, where the danger grows

 E                             B                F#
And it's safe to say there's a bright light up ahead and help is on the way



 E               B                  G#m                  F#
(Help is on the way, Help is on the way, Help is on the way...)


Help is on the way



E             B               F#                             
I forget the last time I felt brave, I just recall insecurity

E                  B             F#    
Cause it came down like a tidal wave, and sorrow swept over me



E, B, F#, E, B, F#



E                             B                          E     
Depression, please cut to the chase and cut a long story short

                            B                F#
Oh please be done. How much longer can this drama afford to run?

E                               B                                 E
Fate looks sharp, severs all my ties and breaks whatever doesn't bend

                       B                F#    
But sadly then, all my heavy hopes just pull me back down again



  E            B             G#m               F#               E
(Back down again, back down again, back down again, back down again, back 

        B              G#m                F#
down again, back down again, back down again.) 



E              B              F#                                   
I forget the last time I felt brave, I just recall insecurity

E                   B           F# 
Cause it came down like a tidal wave, and sorrow swept over me

E           B               F# 
When I was given grace and love, I was blind but now I can see

E               B             F#
Cause I found a new hope from above, and courage swept over me



B, E, F#, B, E, F#


                 B                        E       F# 
It hurts just to wake up, whenever you're wearing thin

             B                    E       F#
Alone on the outside, so tired of looking in

            B                            E         F#
The end is uncertain and I've never been so afraid

                   B              
But I don't need a telescope to see that there's hope

          E       F#    B..... (fade out.)
And that makes me feel brave...


Thanks! - Adam S.
