The Saltwater Room, by Owl City

The intro I borrowed from here, with a minor alteration at the end: 
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/o/owl_city/the_saltwater_room_tab.htm

There is an alternative intro here:

Great song, I loooove Owl City! I'll make a tutorial on Flickr or Youtube soon if

F                     C
I opened my eyes last night, and saw you in the lowlight
F
Walking down by the bay, on the shore
C                 Am                       G
Staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore
F                             C
I was feeling the night, grow old, and you were looking so cold
Am
Like an introvert, I drew my over shirt
G
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before
F                        C
You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me
F
Running into the dark underground
C               Am              G     G
All the subways around create a great sound
F                     C
To my motion fatigue: farewell
C
With your ear to a seashell
Am
You can hear the waves in underwater caves
   G
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room

CHORUS*
F
Time together is just never quite enough
C                      Am
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
F                            C
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
Am            G
We need time, only time
F
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
C                            Am         G    G
If this is what I call home, I’ve never felt so alone
F
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
C            Am       G
All the time, all the time

VERSE 2
F                                 C
Can you believe that the crew has gone, and wouldn’t let me sign on?
F                                     C               Am            G
All my islands have sunk in the deep, so I can hardly relax or even oversleep
F                             C
I feel as if I were home some nights, when we count all the ship lights
F                       Am
I guess I’ll never know, why sparrows love the snow
G
We’ll turn off all of the lights, and set this ballroom aglow
C (it works but idk if it goes with the song)
(Tell me darling do you wish we’d fall in love?)
Am (same as above)
(All the time)

CHORUS*
F                     C
Time together is just never quite enough
Am                        G (or continue with Am)
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
F                            C
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
Am            G
We need time, only time
F                         C
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
Am                           G
If this is what I call home, I’ve never felt so alone
F                          C
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
Am            G
All the time, all the time

OUTRO
F                     C
Time together is just never quite enough
Am                        G
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
F                            C
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
Am                        G
So tell me darling do you wish we’d fall in love?
C
All the time

*I wrote the 2 choruses differently, because they both sound right. You can try it.
