ACOUSTIC PIANO TAB
* This is an improvement on several of the tabs here, both in lyrics and in 
chords. This is a piano player's perspective, as it's a piano driven song, and it 
follows the fun's acoustic version closely. Guitarists should be able to follow 
easily, but I couldn't tell you if the fun. guitarist plays the exact same chords 
as the pianist. *

"We Are Young" by fun.


[VERSE 1]

F
Give me a second I, I need to get my story straight,
   Dm7
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State,
   Gm7
My lover she is waiting for me just across the bar,
               A#                       C
My seat's been taken by some sunglasses asking 'bout a scar, and

F                                    Dm7
  I know I gave it to you months ago;    I know you're trying to forget.
       Gm7
But be-tween the drinks and subtle things, the holes in my apologies, you know,
A#                            C
   I'm trying hard to take it back


[PRE-CHORUS]

             Gm           Am
so if by the time the bar closes
        Dm        Am/C    A#
and you feel like falling down
     A#        C
I'll carry you home 


[CHORUS x2]

   F      F   Am/E  Dm 
To-night, we  are   young
         Dm      Dm/E     A#
So let's set the world on fire; 
            A#
we can burn brighter 
         F/C   -> C
than the sun


[VERSE 2]

      F                 F            F   -> F/E
And I know that I'm not all that you got
Dm                                 Dm2                   Dm             Gm
   I guess that I, I just thought, maybe we could find a ways to fall a-part
                         Gm
But our friends are back,   so let's raise a toast
A#                          C
   Cause I found someone to carry me home 


[CHORUS x2]

   F      F   Am/E  Dm 
To-night, we  are   young
         Dm      Dm/E     A#
So let's set the world on fire; 
            A#
we can burn brighter 
         F/C   -> C
than the sun


[SPECIAL CHORUS]

F                A#
Carry me home to-night
F                C
Carry me home to-night
F                A#
Carry me home to-night
F                C
Carry me home to-night

(the following is sung over the part above)

F                          A#
   The moon is on my side,    I have no reason to run
F                           C
   So will someone come and carry me home tonight.
F                          A#
   The angels never 'rived,    but I can hear the choir
F                           C
   So will someone come and carry me home


[CHORUS x2]

   F      F   Am/E  Dm 
To-night, we  are   young
         Dm      Dm/E     A#
So let's set the world on fire; 
            A#
we can burn brighter 
         F/C   -> C
than the sun


[end on PRE-CHORUS]

             Gm           Am
so if by the time the bar closes
        Dm        Am/C    A#
and you feel like falling down
     A#        C       F
I'll carry you home... tonight
