Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is just what I can gather from the live videos shown so far, Frank hasn't 
actually released the song yet.


[Verse 1]
(chords at the start are palm muted until chorus)
                   Em
Man, we used to be brothers
D                G
 Superheroes and warriors
E                    D
Cowboys and Indians, train drivers
G
Everything rolling through the endless summers
               Em
But everything changes
D                             G
 You got married, had children
      Em
And I don't have your number
    D                          G
The one I can remember is that place you used to live with your parents


[Chorus]
(open strumming)
           C                D         Em          G        D
But in the stillness of the moment it takes for a Polaroid picture

To capture our faces forever and
    C                  D            Em
The world has turned a touch on its axis
        G          D
And the only thing certain is

That everything changes


[Verse 2]
(PM)
                    Em
And they closed the Astoria
D                   G
 At the end of last summer
    Em
The place we earned our pedigrees
D
Scene of our victories
G
Sanctuary in the centre of London
                       Em
Now they're building a railway
D                           G
 To track the vanquished to Versailles
        Em
And the singalongs go on
            D
But they're singing different songs
   G
In rooms that we don't know on the other side of the city


[Chorus]
(open)
           C                D         Em          G        D
But in the stillness of the moment it takes for a Polaroid picture

To capture our faces forever and
    C                  D            Em
The world has turned a touch on its axis
        G          D
And the only thing certain is

That everything changes


[Bridge]
                C
So honey I just need a little time
   Em                   D
To take a little time today
   C                           Em
To saviour all the triumphs and tragedies
                  D
Before they slip away
                  G (PM this section)
Before they slip away

    G
Let go of the little distractions
     D
Hold close to the ones that you love
           C
Because we won't all be here this time next year
             Em                    D
So while you can take a picture of us
    G
Let go of the little distractions
     D
Hold close to the ones that you love
           C
Because we won't all be here this time next year
             Em                    D
So while you can take a picture of us

(open)
                G
Take a Polaroid picture
                D
Take a Polaroid picture
                C
Take a Polaroid picture
                Em      D
Take a Polaroid picture
                           G
Oh, please take a Polaroid picture
                D
Take a Polaroid picture
                  C
Take a picture of us to show
                   Em            D
We all want you to see where the time goes

[Chorus]
(open picking)
          C                D
So in the stillness of the moment
     Em
Make sure you take a Polaroid picture

And keep it with you forever to
C                    D
Remind yourself that everything changes
                  
But there was this one time

Man there was this one time
                  A7 (strummed, let ring)
When things were okay...

hiya - it's great that somebody has already tabbed this before it has even been released :D do you have a vague idea of the strumming pattern at all? I'm not very good at picking them up by ear

I'm pretty sure the chord progression in the chorus is C Bm Em G D instead of C D Em G D.

Also, in the bridge it's Am Em D instead of C Em D.

Otherwise: Great work, thank you!

try playing the song with these variations of the chords

verse
Em = 0-7-5-0-0-0
D = 0-5-4-0-0-0
G = 0-10-9-0-0-0

then for the chorus
C = 3-3-2-0-1-0
D = 0-5-4-0-3-0
Em = 0-7-5-0-0-0
G = 0-10-9-0-0-0

then the bridge with standard chords and outro
I was playing the bridge with the C before but now that you mention it, Am does sound better.

when playing this way, the progression in the chorus just feels so nice and fun to play!
