Oh say can you see my stars
The nighttime is almost ours
To wander through alleys and look at the bars
Nighttime is almost ours

The headlights from passing cars
They illuminate my face then leave me the dark
A voice of Nirvana says "come as you are"
And I will
The nighttime is almost ours

A sway of the hips and arms
Will cradle you from afar
They swing till you're tired and send in alarms
Nighttime is almost ours

    My InterpretationI love this song so much. I think it's about being a young teenager in love and sneaking out of the house and going to see what's out there. They don't have a car of their own, so they're walking around at night just wandering through alleys, looking at bars because they're too young to actually go in and order a drink. They live for the night because it's the only time they can truly be together.
