Switched On  Islands

I love this song and am surprised there isn't a tab already for it.
Since there's nothing online I see yet I quickly penned out the
chords so you can play it. The whole thing revolves around
F#, B, and C#. I usually play them up higher on the fretboard
on the 9th fret. Standard tuning duh.
[F#]I've p[B]ut o[C#]n something
you can't switch off
[F#]I won't buy, you won't cry
[B]I know i will and you know how [C#]it feels
[F#]on the northside on the southside
[B]they sing along long when you switch on[C#]
You switch on [F#]for the city
long gon[B]e from the city
come on strong winds move on[F#]
you belong[F#] in the city
I'm lo[B]ng for the city
switch on a sad song when I'm gone[F#]
when in new york
I stay indoors go into the city
and switch up the pity
on the train someone says
something about how jesus saves
but I'm too lost to be found
you put on a good face, when i wasn't around
on the eastside
on the westside
they sing along when you switch on
You switch on for the city
long gone from the city
come on strong winds move on
you belong in the city
I'm long for the city
switch on a sad song when I'm gone
