"Closing Time" as written by and Dan Wilson....
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

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

    General CommentI think this song is about the ending of one chapter in your life and the feelings it bring... Graduating high school or college and realizing that everything is gonna change. I think it's about that humble and torturing feeling when an amazing day/event is coming to a close. Somehow I doubt it's about leaving a bar. Think metaphors.
