This is Taylor's part in Ceilings. When I can figure out Matt's part I will
 be sure to update the tab. I tabbed this from watching the live acoustic
videos, so it may be different than what he plays on the album, but i cant
find the difference. For the chorus, I had a very difficult time figuring out
 his picking pattern, but I'm certain of the chord shapes. I think it's
something close to what I put, but you can fool around with it for yourself.
 At the bottom I've put 2 ways of organizing the song, they say the same
thing but you can just use whichever is easier to you. I've labeled the two
verse chord shapes as an arbitrary "G" and "A", I'm aware their not actually
those chords, but it was just easier to write. Enjoy!

[Intro]

G


[Verse 1]

G
Haven't stopped your smoking yet

So I'll share your cigarette
                       A
Just to feel it in my fingers


[Verse 2]

G
Walk around 'til 3 am

Tell me what I know again
                           A
To keep myself from second guessing


[Chorus]

       C      Am     C           Am      G
All my silver dreams bring me to you


[Verse 3]

G
Hold the summer in your hands

'Til the summer turns to sand
                       A
We were staring at our ceilings


[Verse 4]

G
Thinking of what we'd give to have one more day of sun,
           A
One day of sun


[Chorus]

C      Am     C           Am    G
Silver dreams bring me to you
C      Am     C           Am
Silver dreams bring me to you
C      Am     C           Am
Silver dreams bring me to you


[Outro]

G

it is Am throughout the whole song. The key does not change. Everywhere that has an 'A' it should be Am

For the chorus, Taylor runs through the C chord just as already written in the tab, but the second half is actually Am and F# dim, so it would be

Am F#dim

With that correction added in, that's exactly how Taylor plays it
