Dropkick Murphys End Of The Night Lyrics

The ember of the fire is starting to fade

But it’s now that I’m at my best

Give the angel on my shoulder

A break for the night

‘Cause the devil ain’t getting no rest

I’ve got thousands of stories

You’ve heard them before

Yet I’ll tell them again and again

Come on, pull up a stool now

And buy me a drink

And please think of me as a friend

We’ll live for the weekend

Each city’s the same

There’s a bar on the corner

Where they don’t know your name

There’s plenty of drink

They’ve been saving your chair

It’s our second home

We ain’t going nowhere

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

This life it ain’t easy

Still we’ve managed to win

There’s times we’ve been knocked down

Yeah, we’ve led with our chin

We’re generous guys


With our hearts on our sleeves

Misunderstood, though the boss disagrees

We can’t catch a break

Wrote the book on bad luck

We’d hold down a job if they didn’t all suck

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

The bartender’s spoken

And he’s made it clear

If you ain’t going home

Then you ain’t staying here

You can’t shut us off

And you won’t turn us down

There’s plenty of joints who’ll be grateful

To have us around

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

You’ve beaten me black

And you’ve beaten me blue

The scars are well worn on my face

I’ve packed up the bags

And I’ve sulked off in shame

For one last walk of disgrace

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home

It’s the end

End of the night

But we ain’t goin’ home
