Hi...ok well there's 2 ways to play this song but i decided to do the one with standard 
This is my very first tab thingy...so yeah sorry if i'm wrong on some parts but this is 
i play it and it sounds pretty good.

CAPO 1

Intro: Em B C G C x4
Em             B     C
She lives in a fairy tale
G                          C
Somewhere to far for us to find.
Em            B         C
Forgotten the taste and smell
G                              C
Of the world that she's left behind.
Em       B    C      G
It's all about the exposure
                C
The lens i told her.
Em            B          C
The angles are all wrong now.
      G                          C
She's ripping wings off of butterflies.

Pre-Chorus:
D                                Em C
Keep your feet on the ground
D                                Em B C
When your head's in the clouds

Chorus:
G
Well go get your shovel
    B
And we'll dig a deep hole
   Em               C
To bury the castle, bury the castle. x2
Em          B     C
Ba Da Ba Ba Da Ba Ba Ha !

Em            B         C
So one day he found her crying
G                      C
Coiled up on the dirty ground.
Em                 B       C
Her prince finally came to save her
G                          C
And the rest you can figure out.
Em            B
Well it was a trick
C       G            C
And the clock struck twelve

Well make sure
Em                 B       C         G
To build your home brick by boring brick
                       C
Or the wolf's gonna blow it down.

Pre-Chorus:
D                               Em C
When your head's in the clouds
D                               Em B C
Keep your feet on the ground

Chorus:
G
Well go get your shovel
    B
And we'll dig a deep hole
   Em               C
To bury the castle, bury the castle x2

Am C G D

Am
Well you built up a world of magic
C
Because your real life is tragic
G                              D
Yeah you built up a world of magic
            G                                B
But if it's not real you can hold it in your hand
                          Em
You can feel it with your heart
    C
And i won't believe it
    G
But if it's true
                         B
You can see it with your eyes
                Em
Oh, even in the dark
           C
And that's where i want to be, yeah

Chorus (again):

Well go get your shovel

To bury the castle, bury the castle x2

Thanks, it's simple and works great!
However, one thing... I'm pretty sure the B's should be Bm's. Other than that it's perfect :)

I'm pretty sure that the end of each chorus is a D instead of C.
But otherwise, good job!
