In the chorus I like to add an F major chord after every A minor chord it sounds more complete

the key is fine.. is an upbeat version. but the third verse is "life" not "live" (as per A-ha's website)

I like this :D but in the chorus after the first a minor it feels wrong, but I still think you did a good job
