We Are Young chords  for acoustic guitar
Fun  (Bhasker, Dost, Antonoff, Ruess from the album Some Nights 2011)

Capo III**

D
Give me a second, I 

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

Getting higher than the Empire State 
   Em
My lover she is waiting for me 
G
Just across the bar, 
               Em
My seat's been taken by some sunglasses 
G
Asking 'bout a scar 

  D
I know I gave it to you months ago 
  Bm
I know you're trying to forget 
      Em
But between the drinks and subtle things 
        G
And the holes in my apologies 
         Em                         A
You know I'm trying hard to take it back 

G            Em           A
So if by the time the bar closes 
        Bm        Em      G
And you feel like falling down 
     Em        A
I'll carry you home 

  D
Tonight,
       Bm
We are young 
                          Em* G
So let's set the world on fi  re 
            Em*  G 
We can burn brighter 
         D A
Than the sun 

  D
Tonight,
       Bm
We are young 
                          Em* G
So let's set the world on fi  re 
            Em*  G 
We can burn brighter 
         D A
Than the sun 

      D
Now I know that I'm not 

All that you got 
  Bm
I guess that I, 

I just thought, 
Em                      G             Em
Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart 
        G           Em
But our friends are back 
         G         Em
So let's raise the cup 
         G                A
'Cause I found someone to carry me home 

  D
Tonight,
       Bm
We are young 
                          Em* G
So let's set the world on fi  re 
            Em*  G 
We can burn brighter 
         D A
Than the sun 

  D
Tonight,
       Bm
We are young 
                          Em* G
So let's set the world on fi  re 
            Em*  G 
We can burn brighter 
         D A
Than the sun 

D               G
Carry me home tonight 
  D              G              D              A
*(La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la) * this is all background
     D               A
Just carry me home tonight 
D               G
Carry me home tonight 
 D              G              D              A
(La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la) 
     D               A
Just carry me home tonight 

     D       
(The world is on my side,) 
 D              G              D              A
(La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la) 

 G
(I have no reason to run,) 
         A                                D
(So will someone come and carry me home tonight?) 
    D             G
The angels never arrived, 
 D              G              D              A
(La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la) 
                   D
But I can hear the choir 
                         A
So will someone come and carry me home 

  D
Tonight,
       Bm
We are young 
                          Em* G
So let's set the world on fi  re 
            Em*  G 
We can burn brighter 
         D A
Than the sun 

  D
Tonight,
       Bm
We are young 
                          Em* G
So let's set the world on fi  re 
            Em*  G 
We can burn brighter 
         D A
Than the sun 

G            Em           G
So if by the time the bar closes 
        Bm        Em      G
And you feel like falling down 

     G         A
I'll carry you home, 
  D
Tonight.
