  • Give me a second I,
    I need to get my story straight
    My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State
    My lover she's waiting for me just across the bar
    My seat's been taken by some sunglasses asking about a scar, and
    I know I gave it to you months ago
    I know you're trying to forget
    But between the drinks and subtle things
    The holes in my apologies, you know
    I'm trying hard to take it back
    So if by the time the bar closes
    And you feel like falling down, I'll carry you home

    Tonight, we are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter than the sun

    Tonight, we are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter than the sun

    Now I know that I'm not
    All that you got, I guess that I, I just thought
    Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
    But our friends are back
    So let's raise a tab
    'Cause I found someone to carry me home

    Tonight, we are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter than the sun

    Tonight, we are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter than the sun

    Carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)
    Just carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)
    Carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)
    Just carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)

    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

    Tonight, we are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter than the sun

    Tonight, we are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter than the sun

    So if by the time the bar closes
    And you feel like falling down
    I'll carry you home tonight
