This song was just released today and me, being such a big fan, immediately 
attempted to figure out the chords, so here they are to the best of my 
knowledge, feel free to comment if anything seems wrong or if I missed something!



[Intro]
C

[Verse 1]
C
I met up with an acrobat
C
In Brooklyn or some place like that
     Cadd9
With life and taxis flying past
   C                   F
We tore that dance hall down

[Verse 2]
C
Pocket change and subway cars
C
Our big ideas filled empty bars
    Cadd9
You might be from the moon or mars
  C                        F
Either way, I'm never going home


[Pre-Chorus]
  Am             G      F        C
So, lets hang an anchor from the sun
Am                   G
There’s a million city lights but



[Chorus]
Am             G
You're number one
          F        C
You're the reason I’m still
Am         G
Up at dawn
         F        C
Just to see your face
         Am           G
We'll be going strong
         F          C
With the vampires, baby
Am        G    F      C
We belong, we belong awake

[Post-Chorus]
F (hold)
Swinging from the fire escape

C

[Verse 3]
C
I was drinking from the wishing well
C
Some junkie metal-head hotel
     Cadd9
When we boarded the carousel
   C                F
The roof was caving in

[Verse 4]
C
On the stage my Oxblood friend
C
Was singing songs about the end
    Cadd9
The bankers in the lion's den
    C                     F
Were dropping lines like beggars in the snow

[Pre-Chorus]
Am               G       F       C
So, lets hang an anchor from the sun
       Am             G
There’s a million city lights but



[Chorus]
Am                G
You're number one
          F          C
You're the reason I'm still
Am         G
Up at dawn
        F        C
Just to see your face
       Am            G
We'll be going strong
        F         C
With the vampires, baby
Am      G     F      C
We belong, we belong awake

[Post-Chorus]
F                            C
Swinging from the fire escape
F                            C
Swinging from the fire escape
F                            C
Swinging from the fire escape


[Verse 5]
C
Walking home your hand in mine
C
Tattoos on the river line
    Cadd9
The morning birds are taking flight
     C                              F
Either way I thought that you should know


[Chorus]
Am                  G
You're my number one
          F           C
You're the reason I'm still
Am         G
Up at dawn
        F        C
Just to see your face
        Am           G
We'll be going strong
        F         C
With the vampires, baby
Am       G     F        C
We belong, we belong awake

[Post-Chorus]
F                             C
Swinging from the fire escape
Swinging from the fire escape
Swinging from the fire escape
Swinging from the fire escape
