Stay by Zedd ft. Alessia Cara

There are some quick changes, especially in the chorus, so I've tried to make these fairly obvious (listen to
the track)
The add9 chords should be played as add2, but that doesn't really show up
Tabbed using pianoNOW’s cover (https://youtu.be/R4xc6P8OqDY) as a starting point,
although I’ve made a few changes — they used sus2 chords in the verses,
but I omitted these for the sake of playability, and because I don't think they're used in the original. 
Enjoy!

Make it on your own, but we don't have to grow up
D#
We can stay forever young
C#                          Fm
Living on my sofa, drinking rum and cola
D#
Underneath the rising sun
C#                  Fm          D#
