Intro -synth, x2-: B  E

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

Pre-Chorus:
          E            Eb
Just like most falling head in
       Dbm              Eb     Gb
Til my ghost fills the bed in

Chorus:
           B         E
So lift it up like a banner
        B       Ebm
Hold it up over me
        Abm           E
If this war is never ending
            Gb
I take this love
          B
down with me
               E
-Like a banner-
B                E
  -Like a banner-

Verse:
B
I don't need fate 

to give it time
Dbm
Doesn't take pain 
               Ebm
to change your mind
B
No weapon can sever 
              Dbm
the soul from me

Pre-Chorus:
        E
Not the sorceress 
        Eb
not the money
       Dbm
All my cleverness 
       Eb      Gb
all my cunning

Chorus:
           B         E
So lift it up like a banner
        B       Ebm
Hold it up over me
        Abm           E
If this war is never ending
            Gb
I take this love
          B
down with me
               E
-Like a banner-
B                E
  -Like a banner-

Bridge:
B
It's around me in

my surroundings
Dbm
It counts me when it 

starts the counting
B
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Ebm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner
B
It's around me in

my surroundings
Dbm
It kills me when it 

starts the counting
B
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Ebm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner

Chorus:
           B         E
So lift it up like a banner
        B       Ebm
Hold it up over me
        Abm           E
If this war is never ending
            Gb
I take this love
          B
down with me
               E
-Like a banner-
        B       Ebm
Hold it up over me
        Abm           E
If this war is never ending
            Gb
I take this love
          B
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.
