C   Cmaj7/B   Am         C/G
One look sent knees to the ground,

 F     C              F       C/G
Young bloods can't be settling down

C     Cmaj7/B         Am          C/G
Young hearts need the pressure to pound,

   F       C       F  C/G
So hold me close my baby

Don't lie, I want him to know

(C/G)  F     C               F        C/G
Gods' loves die young, is he ready to go?

C        Cmaj7/B   Am              C/G
It's the last time running through snow

(C/G)     F          C            F       C/G
Where the vaults are full and the fire is bold

[Chorus]

I want to know, does it bother you?

    F         C    F        C/G
The low click of a ticking clock

C        Cmaj7/B    Am      C/G
There's a lifetime right in front of you

     F       C  F   C/G
And everyone I know

Young turks, young Saturday nights

Young hips shouldn't break on the ice

C    Cmaj7/B           Am       C/G
Old flames, they can't warm you tonight

   F       C     F  C/G 
So keep it cool, my baby

Don't lie, I want him to know

     F    C              F             C/G 
Dial up, three rings and return him his gold

C     Cmaj7/B      Am              C/G
It's the last time running through snow

(C/G)     F          C            F       C/G
Where the vaults are full and the fire is bold

[Chorus 2]

C      Cmaj7/B  Am      C/G
I want to know, does it bother you?

     F        C      F      C/G
The low click of a ticking clock

C      Cmaj7/B      Am             C/G
There's a headstone right in front of you

    F    C      F   C/G
And everyone I know

[Pre-Chorus 3]

C     Cmaj7/B  Am      C/G
Don't lie, I want 'em to know

(C/G) F        C             F       C/G
God's love die young, are you ready to go?

It's the last time running through snow

Cause the fire can't last and the winter's cold

the E chord seems to sound better in place of the C/G in the first line of the verse and a G in place in place of the C/G in the second line of the verse. For example, it'd go
C, Cmaj7/B, Am, E
C, Cmaj7/b, Am, G for the verses and chorus, alternate E and G as final chords, I hope that helps and makes sense. That C/G was bothering me the whole song XD

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. Nope. The chords sound alright acoustic, but play it along to the actual song, and things don't sound right. The Am especially. Sorry.
