I was listening to this for the first time the other night on YouTube, and I 
couldn't find any tabs on it, so I played it by ear. When it comes to the Pre-
chorus (which is also at the end of the song), I was having trouble with what the 
chords were. If you figure it out, shoot me an email with the corrections. Enjoy!

Verse 1:
E
Give me a second, I, I need to get my story straight
   C#m
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State
   A
My lover, he's waiting for me, just across the bar
               F                        B
My seat's been taken by some sunglasses, asking bout a scar, and
E
I know I gave it to you months ago
  C#m
I know you're trying to forget
    A
But between the drinks and subtle things
    (Continue With A)
The holes in my apologies, you know
F                       B
I'm trying hard to take it back

Pre-Chorus:
             F        
So if by the time the bar closes
        C#m       B       A
And you feel like falling down
     F         B
I'll carry you home

Chorus:
E
Tonight
       C#m
We are young
                          A
So let's set the world on fire
            F                 B
We can burn brighter than the sun
E
Tonight
       C#m
We are young
                          A
So let's set the world on fire
            F                 B
We can burn brighter than the sun

Verse 2:
E
Now I know that I'm not all that you got
C#m
I guess that I

I just thought maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
A
But our friends are back

So let's raise a cup
F                         B
'Cause I found someone to carry me home

Chorus:
E
Tonight
       C#m
We are young
                          A
So let's set the world on fire
            F                 B
We can burn brighter than the sun
Whoa
E
Tonight
       C#m 
We are young
                          A
So let's set the world on fire
            F                 B 
We can burn brighter than the sun

Bridge:
E             A
Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)

Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
E             A
Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
     C#m           B
Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
E
The world is on my side
A
I have no reason to run
C#m                      B
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
E
The angels never arrived
A
But I can hear the choir
C#m                      B
So will someone come and carry me home

Chorus: (Palm muted, but keep strumming)
E
Tonight
       C#m
We are young
                          A
So let's set the world on fire
            F                 B
We can burn brighter than the sun
We are young
yeah
E (Resume normal strumming here)
Tonight
       C#m
We are young
                          A
So let's set the world on fire
            F                 B
We can burn brighter than the sun

Pre-Chorus:
             F
So if by the time the bar closes

And you feel like falling down
     F         B    E
I'll carry you home tonight
