Give me a second I,
I need to get my story straight
My friend's are in the bathroom getting higher than the empire state
My lover he is 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
Though holes in my apologies
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

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
Just carry me home tonight
Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight
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

We are young

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

    Why does he say i gave it to u months ago you're trying to forget.
    What did he give her? Then the scar talk.
    It does sound like some abusive ish.
    The rest just sounds like getting drunk carrying each other home.
