Intro -synth, x2-: Ab  Db

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

Pre-Chorus:
          Db            C
Just like most falling head in
       Bbm              C     Eb
Til my ghost fills the bed in

Chorus:
           Ab         Db
So lift it up like a banner
        Ab       Cm
Hold it up over me
        Fm           Db
If this war is never ending
            Eb
I take this love
          Ab
down with me
               Db
-Like a banner-
Ab                Db
  -Like a banner-

Verse:
Ab
I don't need fate 

to give it time
Bbm
Doesn't take pain 
               Cm
to change your mind
Ab
No weapon can sever 
              Bbm
the soul from me

Pre-Chorus:
        Db
Not the sorceress 
        C
not the money
       Bbm
All my cleverness 
       C      Eb
all my cunning

Chorus:
           Ab         Db
So lift it up like a banner
        Ab       Cm
Hold it up over me
        Fm           Db
If this war is never ending
            Eb
I take this love
          Ab
down with me
               Db
-Like a banner-
Ab                Db
  -Like a banner-

Bridge:
Ab
It's around me in

my surroundings
Bbm
It counts me when it 

starts the counting
Ab
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Cm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner
Ab
It's around me in

my surroundings
Bbm
It kills me when it 

starts the counting
Ab
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Cm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner

Chorus:
           Ab         Db
So lift it up like a banner
        Ab       Cm
Hold it up over me
        Fm           Db
If this war is never ending
            Eb
I take this love
          Ab
down with me
               Db
-Like a banner-
        Ab       Cm
Hold it up over me
        Fm           Db
If this war is never ending
            Eb
I take this love
          Ab
down with me

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
