many tabs have transcribed it in Am

The best way to play B7 here is:
E|-2-|
B|-0-|
G|-2-|
D|-1-|
A|-2-|
E|-x-|


--Capo 3rd Fret--

Em7              C
Drink up, baby, stay up all night.
           G
With the things you could do,
     B7
You won't but you might.
       Em7
The potential you'll be,
       C
That you'll never see,
      G        G7         C
The promises you'll only make.

      Em7
Drink up with me now,
        C
And forget all about
       G
The pressure of days.
B7
Do what I say,
          Em7
And I'll make you okay,
      C
And drive them away
     G       G7          C
The images stuck in your head


C   D    *
People you've been before
          C     D     Em     Em/C#
That you don't want around anymore—
      C         D        *
That push and shove and won't bend to your will.
C                 Cm
  I’ll keep them still.


Em7               C
Drink up, baby, look at the stars.
      G
I'll kiss you again
B7
Between the bars,
            Em7
Where I'm seeing you there,
            C
With your hands in the air,
G            B7         C
Waiting to finally be caught.

      Em7
Drink up one more time,
     C
And I'll make you mine.
G
Keep you apart,
B7
Deep in my heart,
      Em7
Separate from the rest,
         C
Where I like you the best,
      G       B7          C
And keep the things you forgot.


    C    D    *
The people you've been before
          C     D     Em     Em/C#
That you don't want around anymore—
       C       D         *
That push and shove and won't bend to your will.
C                  Cm
  I'll keep them still.

Em7

can't understand why this tab got such a low rating, its spot on, except for the G7, not sure if it fits, i the B7 fits better, otherwise great job!!!
