This song is amazing. For the strum pattern, go to lilmurray519 's channel on youtube 
and check it out there.


Intro: G D Em C

           G             D
Skies are crying, I am watching

           Em             C
Catching teardrops in my hands
        G               D             Em             C
Only silence, as its ending, like we never had a chance.
         G               D                Em             C
Do you have to make me feel like there’s nothing left of me?

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

       G
As the smoke clears
    D             Em            D
I awaken and untangle you from me
          G              D         Em               C
Would it make you feel better to watch me while I bleed
         G                  D             Em             C
All my windows still are broken but I’m standing on my feet


(different strum pattern-- check the video)
             G               D
You can take everything I have
               Em           C
You can break everything I am
                   G
Like I’m made of glass
                   D
Like I’m made of paper
           Em              C
Go on and try to tear me down
           G                   D
I will be rising from the ground
            Em                   C
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper


Bridge

Am                  Em               C
Go run run run I’m gonna stay right here
Watch you disappear yeah

Am                  Em                C
Go run run run yeah it’s a long way down
                                    D
But I’m closer to the clouds up here
              G              D
You can take everything I have
              Em             C
You can break everything I am
                  G
Like I’m made of glass
                  D
Like I’m made of paper
Ohh
           G               D
Go on and try to tear me down
           Em                 C
I will be rising from the ground
           G                    D
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper
          Em                    C
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper
      G*
Like a skyscraper

* = play chord once only

Enjoy!
