“The Saltwater Room"- OWL CITY   

Em                     C         G
I opened my eyes last night and saw you in the low light 
Em                        C       
Walking down by the bay, on the shore
Em                   G
staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore 
Em                  C      G          C 
I was feeling the night grow old and you were looking so cold 
Em            C                      Em      
Like an introvert, I drew my over shirt 
                   G                            Em     
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before 
             C           G           C                   
You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me 
Em                  C          Em
Running into the dark underground 
                    G                      Em
All the subways around create a great sound 
                  C           G
To my motion fatigue: farewell 
        Em              C
With your ear to a seashell 
You can hear the waves in underwater caves 
                     C                      G
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room 

    (D, Em, C        D, Em, G)

Em                     C            G
Time together is just never quite enough
                     C                           Em
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
                               C                  G
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
We need time, only time 
Em                         C                G
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of? 
                        C                          Em
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone? 
                           C                  G
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love? 
All the time, all the time 

Em                         C        G
Can you believe that the crew has gone and wouldn’t let me sign on?
Em                   C           Em                    G
All my islands have sunk in the deep, so I can hardly relax or even oversleep
Em                  C           G          Em                       C     
I feel as if I were home some nights when we count all the ship lights 
I guess I’ll never know why sparrows love the snow 
                            C                             G
We’ll turn off all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow

this is not at all correct IN ANY WAY ARE YOU RETARDED.

...it's not even in the right key. go watch a video of them play it live you don't even need a capo... the chords on the album version are just variations of F C and Am.

add a G on the high e when you play the F chord and then an
E like this:


and then...using your ear...add a D and then back to the C for the C chord...


if you were smart. you'd just leave your first finger on the first fret of the b string the whole time and switch the 2nd and 3rd fingers all up on string...

hope this helps.
