Owl City - Alligator Sky chords version 2

Chords:
Transpose
::Alligator Sky by Owl City (Feat. Shawn Chrystopher)::

This is the first single off of Owl City's third album, All Things Bright And Beautiful.
This song makes me smile so much... so I decided to figure out some chords to it!
Considering the song's not really guitar based, it's an easy song to play, and you can 
do it almost however you want.

Here're the chords I use:

G D A Bm E B CmE|--3----5----5----2----0----2----4---|A|--5----5----7----2----2----2----4---|D|--5----7----7----4----2----3----6---|G|--4----7----6----4----1----3----6---|B|--3----7----5----3----0----3----5---|e|--3----5----5----2----0----2----4---|
I personally like the feel of bar chords because they make me feel cool. :P But not everyone has really long fingers like me, so it may not be as easy for you (not to mention, it makes switching chords bundles harder). Go ahead and play open chords if you want 'cause honestly, it makes no difference. You can just play the "regular" chords like this:
G: 3-2-0-0-3-3-|D: x-x-0-2-3-2-|A: x-0-2-2-2-0-|
Yeah, much easier. ANYWAY... Let's do this thang.
G D AWhere was I when the rockets came to life
Bm G D AAnd carried you away into the alligator sky
G D AEven though I'll never know what's up ahead
Bm G D AI'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go
GUh-uh, that's not a plane--that's me
DI'm sittin' where I'm suppoused to
A BmFloatin' on a cloud, can't nobody come close to
G D The concrete and the sky switch places
A BmSo now my ceiling is painted with cosmic spaces
G D Firecracker to the moon, keep your eyes shut
A BmBlastin' off like a rocket from the ground up
G D Ha, I use to catch a cab on a Monday
A BmNow the taxi's sellin' lights on the runway
G D Fly high, condo on the Milky Way
A BmA house on the cloud, God's my landlord
G D And for my rent, all I pay is my drive
A BmGot that, so if you need me you can find me in the alligator sky
G D AWhere was I when the rockets came to life
Bm G D AAnd carried you away into the alligator sky (To the alligator sky)
G D AEven though I'll never know what's up ahead
Bm G D AI'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go
A BmRoller coaster through the atmosphere
G DI'm drowning in this starry serenade
A BmWhere ecstasy becomes cavalier
G DMy imagination's taking me away
A BmReverie, whisper in my ear
G DI'm scared to death that I'll never be afraid
A BmRoller coaster through the atmosphere
G DMy imagination's taking me away
G D Uh, now I'mma dance like I never dance
A BmSing like I never sing, dream like I've never dreamed
G D Or try to, 'cause we've been lied to
A BmThat the sun is somethin' we can't fly to
G D Well, I sit on my star and see streetlights
A BmLook up, ha, you'll miss me if you blink twice
G D A Imagination is hot, and if you got it, you can meet me
BmWhen you see me in the alligator sky
G D AWhere was I when the rockets came to life
Bm G D AAnd carried you away into the alligator sky (To the alligator sky)
G D AEven though I'll never know what's up ahead (I'll never know)
Bm GI'm never lettin' go (Never let go)
D AI'm never lettin' go
[Pause] (Ha, Owl City!) [Key change time! :P]
A E BWhere was I when the rockets came to life (Keep your eyes shut)
Cm A E BAnd carried you away into the alligator sky (Uh, like a rocket from the ground up)
A E BEven though I'll never know what's up ahead (On the Milky Way, uh)
Cm AI'm never lettin' go (I'mma dream like I've never dreamed)
E BI'm never lettin' go
A E B In the alligator sky
Cm(In the alligator sky)
A E B In the alligator sky
Cm(Look up, you'll miss me if you blink twice)
A E B In the alligator sky
Cm(In the alligator sky)
A E B In the alligator sky
You can end on E or let B ring or whatever. And BAM!! That's how I play it. Like I said before, this song's not guitar based, so if you think you'd like to replace one of these chords with something you think sounds better, go ahead! Give it your own 1-2-punch flavor! Nobody's gonna freak. Well, have fun playing and singing along. Keep rocking!
