The entire song is this finger-picking pattern:

B-|----0-------0--|----0-------0--|
G-|----0-------0--|----0-------0--|
D-|--4---4---4---4|--4---4---4---4|

Etc. :)  Also, a second guitar strums the chorus/refrain with a pick.
The outro is flat-picked (by the second guitar) something like this:
E-|----2-------2--|----4-------4--|

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

VERSE 1:
Don't speak. Words come out your eyes.
You're wet with this nightmare.
Like thorns you hold these secrets to your breast,
Your slender fingers closing into fists.

VERSE 2:
Trace your bruise like a guilty streak.
Hold the pain. You're a connoisseur.
You think you have no other gift to give,
But we have so much left to live.

CHORUS:
We don't need a lot of money.
We'll be sleeping on the beach,
Keeping oceans within reach.
(Whatever private oceans we can conjure up for free.)
I will stumble there with you
And you'll be laughing close with me,
Trying not to make a scene,
Etcetera whatever, I guess all I really mean

REFRAIN:
Is we're gonna be alright.
Yeah, we're gonna be alright.
You can close your eyes tonight,
'Cause we're gonna be alright.

VERSE 3:
So come on now, I can almost see
That place on a distant shore.
And courage is a weapon we must use
To find some life you can't refuse.

OUTRO:
I still see your eyes. Close your eyes. Close your eyes.
All that I can see is your eyes. Close your eyes. Close your eyes.
