This sounds pretty accurate to me, but there are probably some parts that could be 
improved. Also, not all the lyrics are correct, so just a heads up. 
CAPO 4 FRET


[Intro]
Am C G F


[Chorus]
Am                 C   
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C               
But baby, I've been, I've been playing hard,
G
Sitting, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be counting stars


[Verse]
Am
I see this life like a swinging vine
C
Swing my heart across the line
G
And my face is flashing signs
F
Seek it out and you shall find
Am
Oh, but I'm not that old
C
Young, but I'm not that bold
G
I don't think the world is sold
F
I'm just doing what we're told

Am C                G
I feel something so right
          F
Doing the wrong thing
Am C                G
I feel something so wrong
          F
Doing the right thing
F
I could lie, could lie, could lie
F
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive


[Chorus]
Am                 C   
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C               
But baby, I've been, I've been playing hard,
G
Sitting, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be counting stars

Am                 C
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C
But baby, I've been, I've been playing hard,
G                       
Sitting, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be, we'll be counting stars


[Verse]
Am
I feel the love and I feel it burn
C
Down this river, every turn
G
Hope is a four-letter word
F
Make that money, watch it burn
Am
Oh, but I'm not that old
C
Young, but I'm not that bold
G
I don't think the world is sold
F
I'm just doing what we're told
Am C                G
I feel something so wrong
          F
Doing the right thing
F
I could lie, could lie, could lie
F
Everything that downs me makes me wanna fly


[Chorus]
Am                 C   
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C               
But baby, I've been, I've been playing hard,
G
Sitting, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be counting stars

Am                 C   
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C               
But baby, I've been, I've been playing hard,
G
Sitting, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be counting stars



-- No guitar part here, but playing a muffled Am sounds pretty good if you want to 
add something --

the lyrics that you have here are not exactly the same. i don't have a problem with the chords though, they sound good.

Instead of sittig, I'm fairly sure it should be said
