Intro -synth, x2-: Db  Gb

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

Pre-Chorus:
          Gb            F
Just like most falling head in
       Ebm              F     Ab
Til my ghost fills the bed in

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

Verse:
Db
I don't need fate 

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

Pre-Chorus:
        Gb
Not the sorceress 
        F
not the money
       Ebm
All my cleverness 
       F      Ab
all my cunning

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

Bridge:
Db
It's around me in

my surroundings
Ebm
It counts me when it 

starts the counting
Db
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Fm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner
Db
It's around me in

my surroundings
Ebm
It kills me when it 

starts the counting
Db
In the chaos 

there is a standard
Fm
I'm carrying it 

like a banner

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