Verse 1:
F#m               A/C#  D
   She lives in a fairy tale
A                     E     D
Somewhere too far for us to find
F#m              A/C#       D
   Forgotten the taste and smell
A
Of the world that she's left behind
F#m          A/C# D     A
   It's all about the exposure
    E      D
the lens I told her
F#m                A/C#      D
   The angles were all wrong now
      A
She's ripping wings off of butterflies


Refrain 1:
E                            F#m D
  With her feet on the ground
E                           F#m D
  And her head in the clouds


Chorus:
     A
Well go get your shovel
    C#m
And we'll dig a deep hole
   F#m
To bury the castle
E
bury the castle
(Repeat)

Verse 2:
F#m              A/C#      D
   So one day he found her crying
A                E     D
Coiled up on the dirty ground
F#m                   A/C#    D
   Her prince finally came to save her
A
  And the rest you can figure out
F#m            A/C#
  But it was a trick
D       A            E
And the clock struck 12
     D        F#m
Well make sure   to build your
      A/C#     D      A
house brick by boring brick
or the wolves gonna blow it down


Refrain 2:
E                            F#m D
  With her feet on the ground
E                           F#m E/G#
  And her head in the clouds


(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3:
        A
If it's not real

You can't see it with your hand
                            F#m
You can't feel it with your heart
    E
And I won't believe it
         A
Cause if it's true
                         C#m
You can see it with your eyes
            F#m
Even in the dark

The actual words are "keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds..."

To be honest, if you change the A/C# to a C#m the top one is perfect to play acoustically.
