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's 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 tryin' 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 (and Quinn):
So if by the time
The bar closes
(And you feel like falling down)
(I'll carry you home)

Finn with New Directions:
Tonight, we are young

Finn and Rachel with New Directions:
So let's set the world on fire!
We can burn brighter,
Than the sun!

Mercedes and Santana with New Directions:
Tonight, we are young
So let's set the world on fire!
We can burn brighter,
Than the sun!

Santana:
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

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

Finn with New Directions:
Tonight

Finn and Rachel with New Directions:
We are young
So let's set the world on fire!
We can burn brighter,
Than the sun! (Mercedes: Whoa!)

Mercedes and Santana with New Directions (New Directions):
Tonight, we are young (We are young!)
So let's set the world on fire! (Fire!)
We can burn brighter, (Brighter!)
Than the sun!

Quinn with New Directions harmonizing:
Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight
Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight

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

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

Rachel (and Finn):
Tonight, we are young
(So let's set the world on fire)
(We can burn brighter,)
(Than the sun!)

Mercedes:
We are young!

Santana with New Directions:
Tonight (Mercedes: Yeah!)
We are young (New Directions: We are young!)

Mercedes and Santana with New Directions (New Directions):
So let's set the world on fire (Fire!)
We can burn brighter, (Brighter!)
Than the sun!

Finn and Rachel:
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home tonight...
