Closing Time – Semisonic


 

Perfect song when you need people to GO HOME

 

Closing Time by Semisonic is one of those songs you had to have heard, late at night at a bar, as they are doing last call.  Listening to the song actually makes you want to go home.  It’s got a pretty catchy beat and lyrics too.

The opening piano work will get stuck in your head, and you will be humming this song before you know it.  It’s got that repetitive time signature throughout the entire track and you will be singing along by the second verse.

Hear it once and you’ll fall in love.

 

“Closing time
Open all the doors and let you out into the world
Closing time
Turn all of the lights on 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

Closing time
Time for you to go out to the places you will be from
Closing time
This room won’t be open till your brothers or your sisters come
So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits
I hope you have found a friend
Closing time
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

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”
