Am7                     F#m
The time to hesitate is through
Am7                      F#m
No time to wallow in the mire
Am7                 F#m
Try now we can only lose
Am7                           F#m
And our love become a funeral pyre

G             A7       D  Bm
Come on baby, light my fire
G             A7       D  Bm
Come on baby, light my fire
G              F#m      E
Try to set the night on fire

Sorry to bash earlier, it sounds okay, my book may or may not be a piece of cheap shit. Good job, man.
