VERSE 2 (same chords)


Take a deep breath and feel it
Nothing can stop you with it.
Keep all the memories of it.
We are alive.

Time can not drag you from it.
Escape all your problems with it.
Forget the doubters of it.
They will realise.


BRIDGE (same chords)


CHORUS x3 (same chords)

[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/e/elliot-friedman/112943.html ]
That's the song right there! Whilst everything after and including the first chorus is more continuously strummed, the intro/first verse and the first bridge all have a very specific pattern. So let's look at that in more detail...


INTRO / FIRST VERSE

e|--xxx--xx----xxx--xx----xxx--xx----xxx--xx---|
B|--xxx--xx----xxx--xx----xxx--xx----xxx--xx---|
G|--999--99----555--55----xxx--xx----777--77---| x2
D|--999--99----555--55----555--55----777--77---|
A|--777--77----333--33----555--55----555--55---|
E|--xxx--xx----xxx--xx----333--33----xxx--xx---|

BRIDGE

e|--xxx--xxxxx--xx--xxxxxx--xxx--xxxxx----x----|
B|--xxx--xxxxx--xx--xxxxxx--xxx--xxxxx----x----|
G|--555--xxxxx--55--xxxxxx--555--xxxxx----7----|
D|--555--xxxxx--55--xxxxxx--333--xxxxx----7----|
A|--333--xxxxx--33--xxxxxx--333--xxxxx----5----|
E|--xxx--xxxxx--xx--xxxxxx--xxx--xxxxx----x----|


The final F chord in that bridge is strummed about 8 times (or more) before he moves up the first chorus. You should now be able to figure out the song by using all the above. Line them up where applicable, so to speak, and you'll get it. Watching the video will also help, of course.

Other notes:

- At times during the chorus he pulls off/hammers on his index finger.
- The outro/final chorus consists of a single strum of each chord.
