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



G (strum once)             D (strum once) Am (strum once)
Breathe and I'll carry you away into the velvet sky
    Cadd9 (strum once)   G (strum once)
And we'll stir the stars around
                    D (strum once) Am (strum once)
And watch them fall away into the Hudson Bay
    Cadd9 (once)   D (once)  G (begin to strum normally)
And plummet out of sight and sound
                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, G (Repeat x4)

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                 G
We're hanging on so take us high
To sing the world goodbye

Cadd 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
      
        D (strum once)
Are you there?
        G(strum once)
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, D (listen to song to get tempo and strumming pattern right...I 
think it repeats 4 times)

Cadd 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
        G
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! :)
