Fun – We Are Young lyrics

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 is waiting for me
Just across the bar,
My seat's been taken by some sunglasses
Asking 'bout a scar

I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you're trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
And 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 the cup
'Cause I found someone to carry me home

Tonight,
We are young
So let's the 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
(La la la la la la)
Just carry me home tonight
(La la, la la la la la la)
Carry me home tonight
(La la la la la la)
Just carry me home tonight
(The world is on my side, )
Carry me home tonight
(I have no reason to run, )
Just carry me home tonight
(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.

    Now, I'm basing this meaning off of just what the lyrics say, I'm not trying to find metaphors or anything. I think that this song is about an abusive relationship. I mean, in the song, he says that his seat next to his girlfriend was taken by a dude who asks her about a scar she has. He then says that he gave it to her months ago, and he's sorry. Sorry to those people who blindly sing along to this song thinking that it's as simple as saying to party while you're young. Pay attention to the lyrics you're singing when you sing them.

    This song is one of my favorites, I couldn't believe it when I found the lyrics somewhere other than YouTube, I've always wanted just the lyrics because I spread have the song, and I didn't want to have to keep going online, and so when I found an easier way I was really delighted, I will be using this web page more often, and I recommend it to everyone, who is looking for lyrics of a song and doesn't find it on YouTube or wanted and easier way like I did, and they also have other songs in different languages, which I thought was cool considering the that I also speak Spanish and don't get me wrong I do listen to Spanish music once in a while, but something that I want to add, is the fact that you can download them and even print them from your computer in a matter of seconds, which I thought was just marvelous, I am very delighted with this web page, and I am sure you will be too once you use it for the first time, and you should also recommend this to all your friends like me and also recommend the song.

    It's about friends searching for love after failing miserably and doing bloody things at the bar such as getting high and drinking till they can't walk straight. The singer effed up W. His girl, and he gave 'it' to her months ago, 'prolly a proposal or what not, and she caught/found out something he did or vice versa and by the time they're trying to make sense of what happened and he seems extremely sorry and I think he's trying to find a way to make it right and take it back, and he states, "now i know that i'm not, all that you got. " I'm assuming she's already moved on or she's a prostitute and his friends come back from doing drugs in the bathroom and he scratches whatever he was going to do and starts drinking with his friends, living in the moment and forgetting whatever was troubling him. But he states again that if even if he goes home alone, he'll be willing to carry her home.

    Here's what I think. He starts with let me get my story straight, then later refers to the holes in his apology. He probably got drunk and hurt his girlfriend/lover and it left a scar. Months later, while at a bar (again), some guy with sunglasses was asking her about her scar and it brought back all the memories. Him hurting her, him trying to come up with a lie that she would believe, him trying to take it back. But now while at the bar, if they get high enough, they may need each other to carry one or the other out of the bar. And temporarily move on. And forget what happened. On a previous night, when he was once again. High.
