There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
the other examples I've seen on here either have chords missing, or they're not quite right, 
so i did ones that sounded most correct to my ears.
the Dsus2/B may have an E bass, i'm not sure.
i'm 90% sure there's 2 guitars playing in the recording, but it's mixed in a way 
that its' hard to hear. 
the Em, i'm sure there's a guitar playing an Am shape 7th fret, but other than 
that i can't hear much.
anyway let me know what you think

We are the people - Empire of the sun               strum: v ^ x ^ v ^ x ^
                                                           1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 
play first 2 lines of verse 1 as intro

verse 1
Em  (2)              Dsus2/B   (2)
     We can remember          swimming in December,
Cmaj7      (2)                   Em (1)  B7sus4  (1)
     Heading for the city lights,   in   1975
Em       (2)                Dsus2/B (2)
     We share in each other          Nearer than father
Cmaj7       (2)             Em    (1)       B7sus4   (1)
     The scent of a lemon,  drips from your eyes

Em  (2)
     We are the people that rule the world
Dsus2/B   (2)
     A force running in every boy and girl
Cmaj7    (2)
     All rejoicing in the world
Em/A    (1)      A add11/B   (1)
     Take me now         We can try

verse 2
     We lived an adventure      Love in the Summer
     Followed the sun till night      Reminiscing other times of life 
     For each every other        The feeling was stronger
     The shock hit eleven  Got lost in your eyes

       Cmaj7   (1)          Em     (1)                         Dadd9 (2)
     I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me, but I know I try
                   Cmaj7  (1)    Em    (1)        A/D     (2) 
     Are you gonna leave me now    Can’t you be believing now      (repeat)

verse 3
     Can you remember and humanize,
     It was still where we’d energized,
     Lie in the sand and visualize like its 75 again


verse 4     
     I know everything about you You know everything about me
     Know everything about us  
     I know everything about you You know everything about me
     Know everything about us  

(bridge, repeat, fade out)
