Intro -synth, x2-: Gb  B

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

Pre-Chorus:
          B            Bb
Just like most falling head in
       Abm              Bb     Db
Til my ghost fills the bed in

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

Verse:
Gb
I don't need fate 

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

Pre-Chorus:
        B
Not the sorceress 
        Bb
not the money
       Abm
All my cleverness 
       Bb      Db
all my cunning

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

Bridge:
Gb
It's around me in

my surroundings
Abm
It counts me when it 

starts the counting
Gb
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Bbm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner
Gb
It's around me in

my surroundings
Abm
It kills me when it 

starts the counting
Gb
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Bbm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner

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