5th fret
The Saltwater Room, by Owl City
Standard Tuning
Capo on the 5th 

I think to get the most sound of chords in this song without arpeggiating is 
this variation of C and G only in the verse, every other chord is played
standard in the rest of the song (including the chorus). Also it sounds
better to end both verses with a standard G chord.

Variation of C chord 

e|-X
B|-3
G|-0
D|-2
A|-3
E|-X

Variation of G chord

e|-x
B|-0
G|-2
D|-0

C                     G
I opened my eyes last night, and saw you in the lowlight
C
Walking down by the bay, on the shore
Em                 C                      D
Staring up at the planes that arent there anymore
C                             G
I was feeling the night, grow old, and you were looking so cold
C
Like an introvert, I drew my over shirt
Em                    C            D
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before
C                        G
You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me
C
Running into the dark underground
Em               C                     D
All the subways around create a great sound
C                     G
To my motion fatigue farewell

With your ear to a seashell
C                      
You can hear the waves in underwater caves
Em                   C           D         G(standard chord)
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room

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

VERSE 2
C                                 G
Can you believe that the crew has gone, and wouldnt let me sign on?
C                                     Em                C            D
All my islands have sunk in the deep, so I can hardly relax or even oversleep
C                             G
I feel as if I were home some nights, when we count all the ship lights
C                       
I guess Ill never know, why sparrows love the snow
E                        C                    D          G(standard chord)
Well turn off all of the lights, and set this ballroom aglow


D          Em              C          G
So tell me darling, do you wish weed fall in love?
D       Em     G      C
              All the time


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


OUTRO
