F|-0--------0---------0---------0--|

you can use your thumb to play the 8th fret on the D string at the Csus2
during the whole song you can palm-mute the strings but you do not have to

The pattern played for the verse is very similar to the intro pattern, but if you want, you can  add the D 
string more frequently and it is also played louder than the rest, which is played quite softly
(or the C string for the C/E chord. you can even add an 'f' [3rd fret, d string] if you
fancy it)


[VERSE]

G
You're setting off, it's time to go, the engine's running
C/E
My mind's lost, we always knew this day was coming
Em                                                    Csus2
And now it's more fright'ning than it's ever gonna be

G
We grow apart, I watch you on a red horizon
C/E
Your lion's heart, I would touch you on a stormy sky
Em                                                           Csus2
 And I will always be listening for your laughter and your tears

       Dsus2
And as soon as I can hold you once again
                         Csus2
I won't let go of you, I swear


[CHORUS]

you can leave out the brackets for the G chord, because James Bay to plays them really fast and softly.
then you just strum it like the Cmaj3 chord pattern

We can't leave us behind
  G    C G   D (strum D twice and move on to verse pattern)

G
Your hands are cold, your lips are turning blue, you're shaking
C/E
This fragile heart, so heavy in my chest, it's breaking
Em                                                    Csus2
And in the dark, you try to make a pay phone call to me

          G
But you're miles away, you're breaking up, you're on your own
C/E
It's hard to take, I need an hour just to say hello
Em                                                      Csus2
And I can't make the truth of this work out for you or me

And for all the pennies in your pocket, 
                               Csus2
we barely get a second just to speak
