Intro -synth, x2-: G  C

Verse:
G
Maybe it's bricks and mortar now
Am                         Bm
Whether or not they run it down
G
I don't want anything 
              Am        Bm
to shake that shape away
G
No one told us which way to come
Am                  Bm
Nobody mapped oblivion
G                        Am
So I go growing roses in disarray

Pre-Chorus:
          C            B
Just like most falling head in
       Am              B     D
Til my ghost fills the bed in

Chorus:
           G         C
So lift it up like a banner
        G       Bm
Hold it up over me
        Em           C
If this war is never ending
            D
I take this love
          G
down with me
               C
-Like a banner-
G                C
  -Like a banner-

Verse:
G
I don't need fate 

to give it time
Am
Doesn't take pain 
               Bm
to change your mind
G
No weapon can sever 
              Am
the soul from me

Pre-Chorus:
        C
Not the sorceress 
        B
not the money
       Am
All my cleverness 
       B      D
all my cunning

Chorus:
           G         C
So lift it up like a banner
        G       Bm
Hold it up over me
        Em           C
If this war is never ending
            D
I take this love
          G
down with me
               C
-Like a banner-
G                C
  -Like a banner-

Bridge:
G
It's around me in

my surroundings
Am
It counts me when it 

starts the counting
G
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Bm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner
G
It's around me in

my surroundings
Am
It kills me when it 

starts the counting
G
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Bm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner

Chorus:
           G         C
So lift it up like a banner
        G       Bm
Hold it up over me
        Em           C
If this war is never ending
            D
I take this love
          G
down with me
               C
-Like a banner-
        G       Bm
Hold it up over me
        Em           C
If this war is never ending
            D
I take this love
          G
down with me
