I transcribed this tab myself, so it may not be perfect, but I'm sure it's very close.

Artist: Paramore
Song: Brick By Boring Brick
Album: Brand New Eyes
Tabbed By: Carrie

Tuning: Standard

Chords:
F#m - 244222
C#m - x46654
D - x57775
A - x02220
E - 022100

Note: the transition between C#m and D is very fast. You can play D xx0232 but the 
barre chord is easier.


Intro
F#m C#m D A x4

Verse
F#m              C#m D
She lives in a fairytale
A
Somewhere too far for us to find
F#m               C#m  D
Forgotten the taste and smell
A
Of a world that she's left behind
F#m  C#m  D           A
It's all about the exposure
       E
The lens I told her
F#m                C#m D
The angles are all wrong now
             A
She's ripping wings off of butterflies

Prechorus
E            F#m   A
Keep your feet on the ground
E               F#m  A
When your head is in the clouds

Chorus
A
Go get your shovel
       C#m
And we'll dig a deep hole
      F#m
To bury the castle
E
Bury the castle
(repeat)

(no guitar)
Ba da ba ba da ba ba da

Verse (same chords)
Now one day he found her crying
Coiled up on the dirty ground
Her prince finally came to save her
And the rest you can figure out
But it was a trick and the clock struck twelve
Well make sure
To build your home brick by boring brick
Or the wolf's gonna blow it down

Prechorus

Chorus

Bridge
         A
This is not real
                             E
And you can't hold it in your hand
                       F#m
Can't feel it with your heart
       E
And I won't believe it
                  A                      E
But if it's true you can see it with your eyes
       F#m
Even in the dark
          E
Then that's where I want to be, yeah

Chorus
