Here are the lyrics for the first verse with the chords just to give you an idea of the rhythm:

A------A1---D-----D1------A------
       So   Jesus left you lonely
A------A1---------D---------D1-----A---
       Feels like nothing's really holy
A-----A1------D------D1--------A-------
       No one no one hears your calling
A-----A1-------D----D1-------A---------
       Falling everything is falling
