Capo 5

Just a slight change to the pre-chorus part from the other capo 5 version.

[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
     F
my lover she's waiting for me

just across the bar
              Dm
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
       F
but between the drinks and subtle things

the holes in my apologies
        Dm                         G 
you know I'm trying hard to take it back


[Pre-Chorus]

              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
   B/Am   Am 
We are young
                          F
So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter 
         C  G
than the sun


[Verse 2]

       C
Now I know that I'm not

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

But are friends in back

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


[Chorus]

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

We can burn brighter 
         C  G
than the sun

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

We can burn brighter 
         C  G
than the sun


[Bridge]

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

(the following is sung during the part above)

[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]


[Chorus]

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

We can burn brighter 
         C  G
than the sun

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

We can burn brighter 
         C  G
than the sun


[Pre-chorus]

              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

Looked very very similar to the one on e-chord website. But still its wrong.

This is alright, but there are some mistakes. Worth learning if you can make the alterations necessary as you go.

I would just like to say that in the chorus part "we are young" it should be Em not B/Am, and in the 2 Verse it should be "so lets raise a toast", not "so lets raise a cup" the rest is good, it sounds ok.
