Intro -synth, x2-: E  A

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

Pre-Chorus:
          A            Ab
Just like most falling head in
       Gbm              Ab     B
Til my ghost fills the bed in

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

Verse:
E
I don't need fate 

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

Pre-Chorus:
        A
Not the sorceress 
        Ab
not the money
       Gbm
All my cleverness 
       Ab      B
all my cunning

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

Bridge:
E
It's around me in

my surroundings
Gbm
It counts me when it 

starts the counting
E
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Abm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner
E
It's around me in

my surroundings
Gbm
It kills me when it 

starts the counting
E
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Abm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner

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