    To me it’s about endings:
    Lost relationships
    Death

    Closing time is:
    Death
    The end of an affair
    The end of the world
    When the bar closes

    Great song.
    It captures/expresses
    the emotions/thoughts brought on
    by alcohol/live music/sexual desire,
    to be found in any bar
    on any night. Unique.
