Artist, Owl City

Lyrics Chord: Owl City – Saltwater Room

(Capo On 5th Fret)
Em C G
I opened my eyes last night and saw you in the low light
Em C
Walking down by the bay, on the shore
Em G
staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore
Em C G C
I was feeling the night grow old and you were looking so cold
Em C Em
Like an introvert, I drew my over shirt
G Em
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before
You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me
Em C Em
Running into the dark underground
G Em
All the subways around create a great sound
To my motion fatigue: farewell
Em C
With your ear to a seashell
You can hear the waves in underwater caves
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room

(D, Em, C D, Em, G)

Em C G
Time together is just never quite enough
C Em
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
We need time, only time
Em C G
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
C Em
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
All the time, all the time
Em C G
Can you believe that the crew has gone and wouldn’t let me sign on?
Em C Em G
All my islands have sunk in the deep, so I can hardly relax or even oversleep
Em C G Em C
I feel as if I were home some nights when we count all the ship lights
I guess I’ll never know why sparrows love the snow
We’ll turn off all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow

(Repeat Chorus)
