Artist: Owl City
Album: Of June
Song: Swimming In Miami

Key: A

Verse 1:
A                    E     D  
 I'm alone above the atmosphere
                           A       E
And no one looking up can find me here
                     F#m                D
Cause I can close my eyes, and disappear
A                           E          D 
 When I climb the stairs to watch the sun
                         A         E
Above station walls, the colors run
                      F#m               D
To fill the swimming pool when I am done   
E                       F#m        A             D           E               
 I am the captain of an oil tanker that travels through your veins


Verse 2:
A                         E     D
 When the satellites hang all around
                           A        E
And I can finally hear the lovely sound
                            F#m              D
When all the engines in the backroom die down
A                       E          D                   
 All the airships move across the sky
                            A        E
And my equipment just keeps standing by
            F#m                D
The planets glow and intensify
E                    F#m           A             D            E 
 I am the pilot of a cargo airplane that travels through your veins


Chorus 1:
Bm                         A                 E
  When you are lying half asleep in your room
Bm                    A                 E
  Unaware if it is midnight or afternoon
Bm                          A                  E
  Because the water doesn't flood the stairwell
Bm                             A                  E
  It could be raining but then you can never tell
Bm                        A             E
  If you're alone in this awful downpour
Bm                              A                  E
  Then struggle free and paddle out the cellar door


Verse 3 (as verses 1 & 2)
In the evening light the boulevard
Conceals the night with disregard
For all the workers in a west coast ship yard
When I rearrange the silverware
And re-install the lights and captian's chair
I'll lift the ceiling off to breathe the ocean air

I am the engineer of forty freight trains that travels through your veins


Chorus 2:
Bm                         A                 E
  When you are lying half asleep in your room
Bm                    A                 E
  Unaware if it is midnight or afternoon
Bm                          A                  E
  Because the water doesn't flood the stairwell
Bm                             A                  E
  It could be raining but then you can never tell
Bm                        A             E
  If you're awake in this awful downpour
Bm                              A                  E
  Then struggle free and paddle out the cellar door
Bm                           A           E  F#m
  When you are swimming in Miami at night
Bm                           A                      E
  And all around you are the traffic and city lights


Ending: A, E, D
