[Verse 1]
                         Bm     D/B
 i think the kids are in trouble
          Em                             A
 i do not know what all the troubles are for
                         Bm    D/B
 give them ice for their fevers
                 Em                   A
 you're the only thing i ever want anymore
                          Bm     D/B
 we'll live on coffee and flowers
            Em                           A
 try not to wonder what the weather will be
                          Bm     D/B
 i figured out what we're missing
                    Em                     A
 tell you miserable things after you are asleep

[Chorus]
           Bm               D 
 now we'll leave the silver city
         G                  Bm     D      G
 cause all the silver girls gave us black dreams
 Bm               D
 leave the silver city
        G
 cause all the silver girls
 Bm   D           G
 everything means everything

[Verse 2]
                  Bm    D/B
 it's a Hollywood summer
             Em                             A
 you never believe the shitty thoughts i think
                        Bm    D/B
 we had friends out for dinner
                     Em                   A
 when i said what i said i didn't mean anything
                Bm   D/B
 we belong in a movie
                   Em                         A
 try to hold it together till our friends are gone
                      Bm     D/B
 we should swim in a fountain
           Em                   A
 I do not want to disappoint anyone

[Chorus]
           Bm               D 
 now we'll leave the silver city
         G                  Bm      D     G
 cause all the silver girls gave us black dreams
 Bm               D
 leave the silver city
        G
 cause all the silver girls
 Bm   D           G
 everything means everything

[Bridge]
 D           Bm        F#m A
 I was afraid I'd eat your brains
 D           Bm        F#m A

D       Bm     F#m A
 Cause I'm     evil
D       Bm     F#m A
 Cause I'm     evil

[Verse 3]
                  Bm   D/B
 I'm a confident liar
                      Em                           A
 Have my head in the oven so you know where I'll be
                    Bm     D/B
 I try to be more romantic
         Em                              A
 i wanna believe in everything you believe
                       Bm  D/B
 i was less than amazing
             Em                             A
 i do not know what all the troubles are for
                              Bm    D/B
 i fall asleep in your branches
                    Em                   A
 you're the only thing i ever want anymore
 
[Chorus]
           Bm               D 
 now we'll leave the silver city
         G                  Bm      D     G
 cause all the silver girls gave us black dreams
 Bm               D
 leave the silver city
        G
 cause all the silver girls
 Bm   D           G
 everything means everything

Transpose the song down 2 half steps (can do this on top of the tab) Put Capo on 2nd Fret and play those chords if you want to play it a little easier. With Capo on 2nd, i play the D/B with index finger on 1st fret B string and ring/pinky finger on 3rd fret low E string.
