Glee Cast - We Are Young Lyrics

Rachel:
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, he is waiting for me
Just across the bar
My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses
Asking ’bout a scar and

Finn:
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

Sam:
So if by the time the bar closes

Sam and Quinn:
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

We can burn brighter than the sun

Santana, Mercedes, Brittany and Sugar:

Santana:
Now know that I’m not
all that you got
I guess that I

Rachel:
But our friends are back
So let’s raise a cup
Cause I found someone to carry me home

The moon is on my side (Quinn: Carry me home tonight)
I have no reason to run (Quinn: Just carry me home tonight)
So will someone come and carry me home tonight

The angels never arrived (New Directions: Na na na na na na na na)
But I can hear the choir (Quinn: Just carry me home tonight)
So will someone come and carry me home

We can burn brighter
Than the sun

And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight
