Closing time - Open all the doors and let you out into the world
Closing time - turn the lights up over every boy and every girl.
Closing time - one last call for alcohol, so finish your whiskey or beer.
Closing time - you don't have to go home but you can't stay here.

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

Closing time - time for you to go out to the places you will be from.
Closing time - this room won't be open 'til your brothers or you sisters come.
So gather up your jackets, and move it to the exits - I hope you have found a friend.
Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end, yeah

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

[MUSICAL BREAK]

Closing time - time for you to go out to the places you will be from...

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end...

    I don't care about anything because nobody knows that i exist so good bye, leave me alone, because the one i want doesn't even know i exist and i only want her. Go away and leave me with my problems. I'm just going to die... Alone.

    A catchy pop song that people can relate to becuse it talks about bars. They play music in bars. I'm drunk so i love this song. I can relate to this song because i spend so much of my life in bars.

    To me, it's about college coming to an end. Go out to the places that you will be from... Won't be open til your brothers and your sisters come... Its kind of sad. A great period of your life coming to an end, hope you found a friend.

    I always listen to this song when i get kicked out of the local bars and pubs for either drinking too much or staying too long in my sorrow... I feel it is a very uplifting and freeing song that everyone should listen to when they are in trouble or are alone.
