Hey, this is my first tab, but I'm pretty sure it's completely correct. If you see 
something wrong with it, just let me know. Enjoy! -Tommy Gun

Song: On the Wing
Artist: Owl City
Album: Ocean Eyes

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 3


* = one strum

G *                        D *            Am *
Breathe and I'll carry you away into the velvet sky
    Cadd9 *              G *
And we'll stir the stars around
                    D *            Am *
And watch them fall away into the Hudson Bay
    Cadd9 *         D *       G
And plummet out of sight and sound
(begin to strum normally)
                D                     Am
The open summer breeze will sweep you through the hills
      Cadd9                G
Where I live in the alpine heights
                   D                  Am
Below the Northern Lights, I spend my coldest nights
Cadd9            D        Em               Cadd9      G
Alone, awake and thinking of...the weekend we were in love


G Cadd9 Em Cadd9 x3
G Cadd9 Em D


G                         D              Am
Home among these mountain tops can be so awfully dull
  Cadd9                   G
A thousand miles from the tide
                  D                 Am
But photos on the walls of New York shopping malls
   Cadd9                G
Distract me so I stay inside
                   D               Am
I wish the rockets stayed over the promenade
    Cadd9                   G
Cuz I would make a hook and eye
                       D                Am
And fish them from the sky, my darling, she and I\
      Cadd9         D        Em
We're hanging on so take us high
            Cadd9 
To sing the world goodbye


Cadd9 G        D
I am floating away
Cadd9     G      D
Lost in a silent ballet
Cadd9               G          D             Em
I'm dreaming you're out in the blue and I am right beside you
Cadd9    G           D
Awake to take in the view
Cadd9           G     D
Late nights and early parades
      Cadd9      G     D
Still photos and noisy arcades
   Cadd9          G           D                   Em
My darling, we're both on the wing, look down and keep on singing
Cadd9      G     D
And we can go anywhere
      
        Cadd9 * G * D *
Are you there?
        Cadd9 * G *
Are you there 
   Em             D     Am       G  D
Or are you just a decoy dream in my head?
Cadd9 D      Em   G      Cadd9    G   D
Am I home or am I simply tumbling all alone?

Am G D 
Cadd9 G Em D
Am G D
Cadd9 D Em G Cadd9 G D
(listen to song to get tempo and strumming pattern right...I think it repeats 4 times)

G Cadd9 Em Cadd9 x3
G Cadd9 Em D

Cadd9 G        D
I am floating away
Cadd9     G      D
Lost in a silent ballet
Cadd9               G          D             Em
I'm dreaming you're out in the blue and I am right beside you
Cadd9    G           D
Awake to take in the view
Cadd9           G     D
Late nights and early parades
      Cadd9      G     D
Still photos and noisy arcades
   Cadd9          G           D                   Em
My darling, we're both on the wing, look down and keep on singing
Cadd9      G     D
And we can go anywhere
        Cadd9 G D
Are you there?



In the actual song, there is another solo (G, Cadd9, Em, G) at the end, but I 
think it sound better on guitar to just end on G. Well, hope this helps! :)
