Decided to try if an even easier version would work. This sounds just about right, 
but all corrections are greatly appreciated. 

For the fun. version, play on capo 5. Might you want to belt along with the Glee 
version (which isn't half bad, even I must admit), put your dear capo all the way up to 7. 


Verse:

C
Give me a second I 

I need to get my story straight
     Am
My friends are in the bathroom

getting higher than the empire state
     F
my lover she's waiting for me

just across the bar
	      Dm
My seats been taken by some sunglasses
G
asking 'bout a scar
    C 
and I know I gave it to you months ago
Am
 I know you're trying to forget
       F
but between the drinks and subtle things

the holes in my apologies
        Dm	                   G 
you know I'm trying hard to take it back


Pre-chorus
	      F          G
so if by the time the bar closes
         C       Am        F
and you feel like falling down
       F       G
I'll carry you home 



Chorus [x2]

  C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
			  F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         G
than the sun


Verse 2:

       C
Now I know that I'm not

all that you got
  Am
I guess that I
                                                     F
I just thought maybe we could find a ways to fall apart

But are friends in back

So let's raise a cup
Dm                         G
 Cause I found someone to carry me home 

Chorus [x2]

 C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
			  F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         G
than the sun


 C                F
Carry me home tonight
     C                G 
Just carry me home tonight
C               F
Carry me home tonight
      C               G
Just carry me home tonight

(the following is sung during the part above)

[The world is on my side

I have no reason to run

So will someone come and carry me home tonight

The angels never arrived

but I can hear the choir

so will someone come and carry me home]


Chorus [2x]

C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
			  F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         G
than the sun


Pre-chorus

 F          G
so if by the time the bar closes
         C       Am        F
and you feel like falling down
       F       G
I'll carry you home

Nice! Much easier to sing and play this way. I do believe I'll be playing this version at my gig tonight. Thanks!

In hindsight, I believe Dm first, then F sounds more accurate in the verses. Still not sure about the pre-chorus part. Am to C there sounds slightly off. Hope your gig went well, Greg.

I think the start of the pre-chorus is A then B.

Also there should be a C between the F and the G in the chorus.
