The Lyrics

If you like old people, then enjoy this.
Give me a minute, I have to get my tale straight.
The Fellowship laugh
On a high water tower
My lover he is waiting for me
Across the bar
A gourd just sat on my chocolates and hat.
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 old
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight,
We are old
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 old
So let's the set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight,
We are old
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 old
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
Than the sun

Tonight,
We are old
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.
