  • Tonight
    We are young
    So let'€™s set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter than the sun

    Now I'm not
    All that you got
    I guess that I, I just thought
    Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
    But our friends are back
    So let'€™s raise a toast
    '€˜Cause I found someone to carry me home


    The moon is on my side
    I have no reason to run
    So will someone come and carry me home tonight
    The angels never arrived
    But I can hear the choir
    So will someone come and carry me home Writer/s: Andrew Dost, Jack Antonoff, Jeff Bhasker, Nate Ruess

  • I Sort Of Wonder from HomeWhy did you give someone a scar?
    And then sing about it... ..
    Being young us No Excuse.

  • Brenda from Ocala, Fl@ Kathy....I thing he is apologizing about the scar he gave her months ago. Catchy tune, but to me it's about "getting drunk and to hell with consequences, we're young, so what?" Not sure if it is violence or just sloppy drunk referring to the scar, though...
  • Elmer H from Westville, OkOh yeah! This song "We Are Young" says a lot to young people & even the young-at-heart. Fun is one of my favorite groups and I love their album "Some Nights." So so funky. And my two dogs love this song.
  • Kathy from Albuquerque, NmI still want to know what he gave her and is trying to take back and has apologized for......
  • Camille from Toronto, OhHas a fabulous, memorable chorus; had that epic sound to it and the words...no matter what age anyone is, these are often still times in your life you will say that at least "tonight" "we are young" and you really do want to set the world on fire. The lead singer here is great looking and his looks are perfectly showcased in the darkness of the club wearing the suit with bowtie. Could have come up with a better concept than people trashing the place, that's too average and the song is so good it deserved a unique spin on the video.
