The Real World by Owl City
Standard Tuning
Capo: 1st Fret

This is pretty much my first tab from scratch, so it might not be perfect but it sounds 
as best as I could make it! Enjoy.

[INTRO]
C Dm Am7 F
C Dm F G

[VERSE 1]
C           Dm
I saw the autumn leaves
Am7               F
Peel up off the street
C                 Dm
Take wing on the balmy breeze
      F                  G
And sweep you off your feet
C                   Dm
And you blushed as they scooped you up
    Am7          F
On sugar maple wings
C                     Dm
To gaze down on the city below
F                      G
Ablaze with wondrous things

[CHORUS]
Am               G        F
Downy feathers kiss your face
       G
And flutter everywhere
Am             G      F
Reality is a lovely place
         G
But I wouldn't wanna live there

C Dm Am7 F
         I wouldn't wanna live there
C Dm F G

[VERSE 2]
C                 Dm
Weighed down by heavy lids
     Am7     F
And lunar lullabies
C                Dm
I knew you were wide awake
            F                G
'Cause you smile with your eyes

[CHORUS]
Am               G        F
Downy feathers kiss your face
       G
And flutter everywhere
Am             G      F
Reality is a lovely place
         G
But I wouldn't wanna live there

[BRIDGE]
C                     Dm
From the green belt balcony
Am7                     F
The wildfires look so pretty
C           Dm
Ponderosa canopy
      F            G
I'd never leave if it were up to me
C             Dm
To the ruby redwood tree
Am7                  F
And to the velvet climbing ivy
C               Dm
Painted all mahogany
      F            G             C
I'd never leave if it were up to me
(If it were up to me)

F                   G
With a starry brush
                          F
Paint the dusk venetian blue
                           G
'Cause in the evening hush
               C           F
You'll never believe the view
                           G
And when the leaves return
                                 F
And their whisperings fill the night
                        G
They'll freeze and burn
                      C
Where fire and ice collide

C Dm Am7 F
         Where fire and ice collide
C Dm F G

[CHORUS 2 & 1]
Am              G      F
Can you feel a silk embrace
         G
In the satin air?
Am               G         F
If we dissolve without a trace
          G
Will the real world even care?
Am               G        F
Downy feathers kiss your face
       G
And flutter everywhere
Am             G      F
Reality is a lovely place
         G
But I wouldn't wanna live there

C Dm Am7 F
         I wouldn't wanna live there
C Dm F G

[OUTRO]
C           Dm
I saw the autumn leaves
Am7               F
Peel up off the street
C                 Dm
Take wing on the balmy breeze
      F                  G
And sweep you off your feet...

It's pretty good but i'm sure the Am7 is a C/E.
