Tuning: Standard
Capo: 9

This is how I like to play the song when I play it acoustically. 
Since no one tagged the chords to the lyrics, or any site I could 
find had accurate lyrics, I typed them up and added the chords. 
I hope it helps.

When I play it, I like to finger pick just the 2nd, 4th, and 5th strings,
and strike the strings for the mute and sound it makes. 
You play Am for an extra count so it would look like this.


(Capo 9)   Am      Am      F       C
e|-------------x-------x-------x-------x--|
B|---------1---x---1---x---1---x---1---x--|

D|-------------x-------x-------x-------x--|
A|---------0---x---0---x---3---x---3---x--|
E|-------------x-------x-------x-------x--|


On the second Bridge I change the finger picking to an arpeggiated pattern
with the same fingers, playing up and down the 2nd, 4th, and 5th strings
rapidly like this.

    Am                      F                       C

The song is originally played without a capo in F#m, and though I tabbed it
for the 9th Capo, I'll include the chords without a capo, and with the capo
on 2.

Chorus:

Am                                     F                  C
  Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars

Am                                     F                 C
  I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now

Am                                     F                  C
  Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars

Am                                     F                 C
  I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now



Bridge 1:

Am                   F  C
Dreamin’ of fallin’
                     F  C
Am       
Dreamin’ of fallin’



Verse 1:

Am                                   F                          C
  Lets pretend like its 98, like I’m eating lunch off of a Styrofoam trays

          Am                                     
Trying to be the next rapper coming out the A

        F                       C
Hoping for a record deal, to re-know my pain

Am                                     
  Now lets pretend like I’m on the stage

            F                    C
And when my beat drops everybody goes insane (Ok)

Am
  And everybody know my name (Bob)

         F                       C
And everywhere I go people wanna hear me sang

Am
  Oh yea and I just dropped my new album

F                       C
On the first week I did five hundred thousand

Am
Gold in the spring and diamond in the fall

F                             C
And then a world tour just to top it all off

Am
  And let’s pretend like they call me the greatest

F                       C
Selling out arenas with big ass stages

Am
And everybody loved me and no one ever hated

F                     C
Let’s try to use imagination



Chorus:

Am                                     F                  C
  Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars

Am                                     F                 C
  I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now

Am                                     F                  C
  Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars

Am                                     F                 C
  I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now



Verse 2:

    Am
Ok, let’s pretend like this never happened

       F                   C
Like I never had dreams of being a rapper

       Am
Like I didn’t write raps up in all of my classes

       F                      C
Like I never use to runaway into the blackness

   Am
Now let’s pretend like it was all good

       F                        C
Like I didn’t live staring in a notebook

       Am
Like I did the things that I probably knew I should

             F                              C
But I didn’t have neighbors that’s why they call it hood

Am
  Now lets pretend like I aint got a name

            F                       C
Before they ever called me B.o.B or a.k.a Bobby Ray

Am
  I’m talking back before the mixtapes

  F                       C
Before the videos and the deals and the fame

  Am
Before they ever once compared me to Andre

  F                     C
Before I ever got on myspace

                 Am
Before they ever noticed my face

   F                      C
So let’s just pretend and make wishes out of airplanes



Chorus:

Am                                     F                  C
  Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars

Am                                     F                 C
  I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now

Am                                     F                  C
  Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars

Am                                     F                 C
  I could really use a wish right now, a wish right now, a wish right now



Bridge 2:

Am                           F              C
  And it seems like yesterday it was just a dream

Am                        F               C
  But those days are gone, there just memories

Am                           F              C
  And it seems like yesterday it was just a dream

Am
  But those days are gone



Verse 3:

         Am
Let’s Pretend Marshall Mathers never picked up a pen

         F                         C

Pretend he just made excuses that was so paper thin

                Am 
They could blow away with the wind, Marshall you never gone make it

         F                                     C

Pretend he just stayed out side all day and played with his friends

   F                            C
Pretend he even had a friend to say was his friend

       Am

    Am
And his alarm went off to wake him but he didn't make it 

       F                              C

It's pretty good.
But it seems to be in a higher key than the original version.
