It's my first tab, I just listened to Birdy's version and thought those chords 
fit, but if you find some mistakes, please correct me :)

Birdy (orig. by Postal Service) - The District Sleeps Alone Tonight

- No Capo -

Intro:
C - F - Am -Am (Repeat 4x)

C       F     Am   Am
 Smeared black ink
C     F            Am                  
 Your face is ashen and I'm barely listening
C   F       Am
 To last demands
C                   F
 I'm staring at the asphalt wondering
Am                      Am
 What's buried underneath


 C     F G  G 
 Where I am
 C     F G  G
 Where I am


      C    F  Am    Am
 I'll wear my badge
C                     F                 Am
 A vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
C   F                Am
  That tells your new  friends
C       F           
 I am a visitor here
Am
 I am not permanent
C        F    Am
 And the only thing
C    F      Am
 Keeping me dry is


C        F      G              G
Where    I      am            (In this gaudy apartment complex)
   [You seem so out of context]

C           F       G             G
Where       I       am           (Explaining that I am just visiting)
   [A stranger with your door key]

C           F      G        G
Where       I      am      (why I was the one worth leaving)
   [And I am finally seeing]
 F                          C
(Why I was the one worth leaving)


Am G   F
 D.C. sleeps alone tonight
Am G   F               D
 D.C. sleeps alone tonight



C        F      G              G
Where    I      am            (In this gaudy apartment complex)
   [You seem so out of context]

C           F       G            G
Where       I       am           (Explaining that I am just visiting)
   [A stranger with your door key]

C           F      G        G                           C
Where       I      am      (why I was the one worth leaving)
   [And I am finally seeing]
 F                           C
(Why I was the one worth leaving)


Am            F                G             ( Dm )                  Am
 The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
                F            G                      Am
 And leave the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
Am          F         G               F               Am
 And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving
G              F             C
 Why I was the one worth leaving
G              F             C
 Why I was the one worth leaving
G              F             C
 Why I was the one worth leaving 

Outro:
F - Dm - Am7 - C
