F
Give me a second I 

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

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

just across the bar
              C
My seats been taken by some sunglasses

asking 'bout a scar
F
and I know I gave it to you months ago
Dm
I know you're trying to forget
Bb
but between the drinks and subtle things
C
the holes in my apologies
                                
you know I'm trying hard to take it back


[Pre-chorus]
             Bb       C
so if by the time the bar closes
        Dm    C         Bb
and you feel like falling down
Bb             C
I'll carry you home 



[Chorus x2]

F
Tonight
F         Dm 
We are young
                          Bb
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
          F  C    
Than the sun



[The Same as the 1. verse]

Now I know that I'm not
all that you got
I guess that I
I just thought maybe we could find a ways to fall apart
But are friends in back
So let's raise a cup
Cause I found someone to carry me home 

[Chorus x2]

Tonight
We are young
So let's the set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun


F               Bb
Carry me home tonight
      F/Dm            C
Just carry me home tonight
F               Bb
Carry me home tonight
      F/Dm            C
Just carry me home tonight

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 

Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun


[Same as pre-chorus on the 1. verse,except ending is a Fmajor after the C.]

So if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home tonight

Seems to fit best. A few style comments after seeing some video with a capo on the first fret (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZuIAZsOw-w)
Use the following (not relative to capo)
F: 1-3-3-2-1-1 or 8-8-10-10-x-x (bridge)
Dm: 5-5-7-7-6-5
Bb: 6-8-8-7-6-6
C: 8-10-10-9-8-8 or 3-3-2-2-1-1 (after F in chorus)

Transitions in chorus
F to Dm: can do -x-x-10-10-x-x to x-9-9-x to x-7-7-x
Dm to Bb: from 5-5-7-7-6-5 to x-7-7-x-x-x to Bb

That works for me at least, enjoy

Are you serious? These aren't even close! Learn some harmony. I'll give you a start on the verse:

||F / / /|/ / / /|Dm / / /|/ / / /|Gm / / /|/ / / /|Bb / C /

There's a small interlude that goes:

||Gm / Am /|Dm / C /|Bb /|Bb / C /|
Notice measure 3 is only 2 beats

The chorus goes:

||F / / /|/ / /(C/E)|Dm / / /|/ / / /|Bb / / /|/ / / / |

|(Bb/C)/ / /|C / / /||

And any idiot playing this with a capo shouldn't be allowed near a guitar. Buy yourself a clue...

Easy there shooter, just backing out how it looked like it was played in the video I referenced, where it is played with a capo on the first fret.
