Owl City - Shooting Star chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a tab for the acoustic version of Shooting Star, off of the new The 
Midsummer Station Acoustic EP. I think this take of the song is better, and at 
least a little more like Owl City's pre-TMS stuff.

For the purposes of this tab, whenever you see an E, just play the open chord 
(022100), and when you see E(barre chord), play x79997. All the E (barre chords) 
are played quickly.

Key: B

Intro: B E B E(barre chord) E

B                     E
Close your tired eyes,  relax and then
B                 E(barre chord)     E
Count from one to ten,           and open them
B                        E
All these heavy thoughts   will try to weigh you down
B                 E(barre chord) E
But not this time
B                 E
Way up in the air,  you're finally free
B                   E(barre chord)       E
And you can stay up there           right next to me
B                E
All this gravity   will try to pull you down
B                 E(barre chord) E
But not this time

         B
When the sun goes down and the lights burn out,
          E
Then it's time for you to shine
                G#m
Brighter than a shooting star
                E             F#
Shine no matter where you are
         B
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light,
            E
'Cause it's time for you to shine
                G#m
Brighter than a shooting star
                   E             F#
So shine no matter where you are    tonight

B
Whoa, whoa, whoa,
                G#m
Brighter than a shooting star
                E             F#
Shine no matter where you are    tonight


Gaze into my eyes when the fire starts
And melt the flames so hot, it melts our hearts
All the pouring rain will try to put it out,
But not this time
Let your colors burn and brightly burst
Into a million sparks that all disperse
And illuminate a world that'll try to bring you down,
But not this time

When the sun goes down and the lights burn out,
Then it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star
Shine no matter where you are
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light,
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star
Shine no matter where you are tonight

Whoa, whoa, whoa,
Brighter than a shooting star
Shine no matter where you are

F#   B     F# B
   Tonight
F#            B
   A thousand heartbeats beat in time
F#                B
   And makes this dark planet come alive,
F#             B
   So when the lights flicker out tonight,
F#
   You gotta shine

When the sun goes down and the lights burn out,
Then it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star,
So shine no matter where you are
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light,
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star,
So shine no matter where you are tonight

Whoa, whoa, whoa,
Brighter than a shooting star
Shine no matter where you are tonight

End on B.
