Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the acoustic performance for Shooting Star by Owl City, as part of the Spotify sessions.  
This was done by ear, so I don't know if it is how Adam plays it, but it sounds pretty close.  
I wasn't sure of the chord names, but the diagrams are at the bottom.   
Hope you enjoy it, it's fun to play along to - Craig K.

Capo 4th Fret(Chords relative)
Standard Tuning

For the first two verses, just strum each chord once - as with any song listen to it to get the timing right.

G
Close your tired eyes, relax and then
A7sus4           Cadd9
Count from 1 to 10 and open them
Em7
All these heavy thoughts will try to weigh you down
A7sus4        Cadd9
But not this time

G
Way up in the air, you're finally free
A7sus4             Cadd9
And you can stay up there right next to me
Em7
All this gravity will try to pull you down
A7sus4      Cadd9
But not this time

(Start to strum from here on)

G
When the sun goes down and the lights burn out
Cadd9
Then it's time for you to shine
Em7
Brighter than a shooting star
Cadd9                Gmaj9(no 3rd)
So shine no matter where you are

G
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light
Cadd9
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Em7
Brighter than a shooting star
Cadd9                Gmaj9(no 3rd)
So shine no matter where you are tonight

G                 Cadd9
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh
Em7
Brighter than a shooting star
Cadd9                Gmaj9(no 3rd)
Shine no matter where you are tonight

G
Gaze into my eyes when the fire starts
A7sus4               Cadd9
And fan the flames so hot it melts our hearts
Em7
Oh, the pouring rain will try to put it out
A7sus4      Cadd9
But not this time

G
Let your colors burn and brightly burst
A7sus4          Cadd9
Into a million sparks that all disperse
Em7
And illuminate a world that'll try to bring you down
A7sus4      Cadd9
But not this time

G
When the sun goes down and the lights burn out
Cadd9
Then it's time for you to shine
Em7
Brighter than a shooting star
Cadd9                Gmaj9(no 3rd)
So shine no matter where you are

G
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light
Cadd9
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Em7
Brighter than a shooting star

So shine no matter where you are tonight

Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh
Em7
Brighter than a shooting star
Cadd9                Gmaj9(no 3rd)
Shine no matter where you are tonight

Gmaj9(no 3rd) G     Cadd9
A thousand heart beats beat in time
Gmaj9(no 3rd) G     Cadd9
It makes this dark planet come alive
Gmaj9(no 3rd) G     Cadd9
So when the lights flicker out tonight
Gmaj9(no 3rd)
You gotta shine

G
When the sun goes down and the lights burn out
Cadd9
Then it's time for you to shine
Em7
Brighter than a shooting star
Cadd9                Gmaj9(no 3rd)
So shine no matter where you are

Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light
Cadd9
'Cause it's time for you to shine
