Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
It's all very simple. Most of the song is G, C, Em, D and the bridge is Am, Em, C, G, D. That's it.

For the strumming, you can do a concomitant pluck of e, B, G and E chords across the chords.
[easy] strumming: down-down-down-DOWN-down-down-DOWN (where down is simple strum and DOWN is rougher strum)


[Verse 1]
          G             C
Skies are crying, I am watching,
          Em            D
Catching teardrops in my hands.
          G             C             Em           D
Only silence, as it's ending, like we never had a chance.
          G             C                Em              D
Do you have to make me feel like there's nothing left of me?

[Chorus]
              G           C
You can take everything I have,
              Em           D
You can break everything I am,
                 G              C
Like I'm made of glass,
                 Em             D 
like I'm made of paper.
          G              C
Go on and try to tear me down,
          Em               D
I will be rising from the ground,
          G             C
Like a skyscraper, 
          Em            D
like a skyscraper

[Verse 2]
        G          
As the smoke clears,
    C          Em               D
I awaken and untangle you from me.
         G              C              Em          D
Would it make you feel better to watch me while I bleed?
        G                 C                Em             D
All my windows, still are broken, but I'm standing on my feet.

[Chorus]
              G           C
You can take everything I have,
              Em           D
You can break everything I am,
                 G              C
Like I'm made of glass,
                 Em             D 
like I'm made of paper.
          G              C
Go on and try to tear me down,
          Em               D
I will be rising from the ground,
          G             C
Like a skyscraper, 
          Em            D
like a skyscraper

[Bridge]
   Am             Em
Go run, run, run, I'm gonna stay right here,
C               G    D
Watch you disappear, yeah.
   Am             Em                       C
Go run, run, run, yeah, it's a long way down,
         G                       D
But I'm closer to the clouds up here.

[Chorus]
              G           C
You can take everything I have,
              Em           D
You can break everything I am,
                 G              C
Like I'm made of glass,
                 Em             D 
like I'm made of paper.
          G              C
Go on and try to tear me down,
          Em               D
I will be rising from the ground,
          G             C
Like a skyscraper, 
          Em            D
like a skyscraper
       Em       C
Like a skyscraper,
       Em       C 
like a skyscraper,
       Em       C
Like a skyscraper.

First chord on the last line of each verse should be Em.
