[Verse]

C
Give me a second I 

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

Getting higher than the empire state
     Dm
My lover she's waiting for me

Just across the bar
              F
My seats been taken by some sunglasses
G
Asking 'bout a scar

    C 
And I know I gave it to you months ago
Am
 I know you're trying to forget
       Dm
But between the drinks and subtle things

The holes in my apologies
        F                          G 
You know I'm trying hard to take it back


[Bridge]

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


[Chorus]   

  C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
                          F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         Gsus4  G
Than the sun

  C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
                          F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         Gsus4  G
Than the sun


[Verse 2]

       C
Now I know that I'm not

All that you got
  Am
I guess that I
                                                     Dm
I just thought maybe we could find a ways to fall apart

But are friends in back

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


[Chorus] 

  C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
                          F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         Gsus4  G
Than the sun

  C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
                          F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         Gsus4  G
Than the sun


[Bridge] 

 C                F
Carry me home tonight
     C/E              G 
Just carry me home tonight
C               F
Carry me home tonight
      C               G
Just carry me home tonight


C                       F
The world is on my side  I have no reason to run
C/E                        G 
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
C                        F
The angels never arrived  but I can hear the choir
C/E                       G 
so will someone come and carry me home 


[Chorus] 

  C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
                          F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         Gsus4  G
Than the sun

  C
Tonight
       Am 
We are young
                          F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         Gsus4  G
Than the sun


[Bridge]

              Dm      Em
So if by the time the bar closes
         Am        G       F
And you feel like falling down
       F       G       C
I'll carry you home tonight

Nice! Much easier to sing and play this way. I do believe I'll be playing this version at my gig tonight. Thanks!

In hindsight, I believe Dm first, then F sounds more accurate in the verses. Still not sure about the pre-chorus part. Am to C there sounds slightly off. Hope your gig went well, Greg.

I think the start of the pre-chorus is A then B.

Also there should be a C between the F and the G in the chorus.
