    I like to pick the first verse throwing in a noticeable upstroke of
    only the last two or three strings at the end of everyline and Strum
    the chorus.Then I continue and strum the second verse but on each Am,
    throw in a part where i hit the top string aswell giving off a really
    deep sound.This is great especially if your playing on your own to give
    the song a bit more depth.And Finally after the Second Chorus launch
    straight into the Outro full on strumming,then pick the D bit and hit Am
    once.Or failing all that just do it your own way!!!Whatever makes ya
    Happy!!!
    For the Intro I just strum the first couple strings of Am,
    then a second couple followed by and upstroke of two strings.
    Then First few Am strings again followed by the first few of
    C,the second couple of C,upstroke last two of C.Then hit the
    first few of D,second few of D and upstroke of the last two D
    strings.Then Repeat from the start again,when finished with D
    this time do Am one more time and launch into the song.

    I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel 
    CDAmCDAm
    I focus on the pain, the only thing thats real 
    CDAmCDAm
    The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting 
    CDAmCDG
    Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything 
    AmFCG
    What Have I become, my sweetest friend 
    AmFCG
    Everyone I know, goes away in the end 
    AmFCG
    And you could have it all, my empire of dirt 
    AmFGAm
    I will let you down, I will make you hurt 
    For the bit between the verses here I like to hit the last few
    strings of Am,(ebg)then slowly move up your strumming so your
    hitting bgd,then up to gda and finally when you've hit daE a few
    times,I go for two go back down and hit ebg once.Then straight
    into the next verse.
