Vanilla Twilight  Owl City

tabbed by ambient 203
Tuning: Standard
Sorry about the spacing, it's a little off but hopefully you can figure it out.
I have to give JJ (he tabbed out version 2) credit for figuring out the main
keyboard riff, although I've altered it slightly because it wasn't exactly
right. Anyway, this is a really cool song, I hope you enjoy!
[B]The stars lean [F#]down to kiss you,
[Abm]And I lie aw[E]ake and miss you.
[B]Pour me a h[F#]eavy dose of a[Abm]tmosphere.[E]
[B]Cause I'll doze off [F#]safe and soundly,
[Abm]But I'll miss your a[E]rms around me.
[B]I'd send a po[F#]stcard to you dear,
[Abm]Cause I wish [E]you were here.

B, F#, Abm, E x4 (same chord progression as above)
[B]I'll watch the ni[F#]ght turn light blue,
[Abm]But it's not the s[E]ame without you
[B]Because it takes [F#]two to whisper q[Abm]uietly.[E]
[B]The silence i[F#]sn't so bad
[Abm]'Til I look at my [E]hands and feel sad
[B]Cause the spaces be[F#]tween my fingers are [Abm]right where yours fit [E]perfectly.
(This is the little keyboard riff that goes from
"I'll find repose..." to "... I don't feel so alone.")

[B]I'll find rep[F#]ose in new ways,
[Abm]Though I haven't s[E]lept in two days
[B]Cause cold no[F#]stalgia chills me [Abm]to the bone.[E]
(play this part by barring the 7th fret of the B and e strings
with your index finger)

[B]But drenched in va[F#]nilla twilight,
[Abm]I'll sit on the fr[E]ont porch all night
[B]Waist deep in [F#]thought because when I [Abm]think of you I d[E]on't feel so alone.
[C#m] [Abm] [F#]  
I don't feel [C#m]so alone.[Abm] [E]
I don't feel [C#m]so alone.[Abm] [F#] [E]
As [B]many t[F#]imes as I [C#m]blink I'll [Abm]think of y[E]ou, tonight.
[B] [Abm] [E]  
[B] [E] [F#]  
I'll think of [B]you t[Abm]onight.[E]
[B] [E] [F#]  
[C#]When violet e[Ab]yes get brighter
[Bbm]And heavy wi[F#]ngs grow lighter
[C#]I'll taste the [Ab]sky and feel a[Bbm]live again.[F#]
[C#]And I'll forget the [Ab]world that I knew,
[Bbm]But I swear I w[F#]on't forget you.
[C#]Oh, if my[Ab] voice could reach back[Bbm] through the past
I'd [F#]whisper in your [Ab]ear... Oh darling I wish you were here.
C# Ab Bbm F# x8 add after second play through
