about

Bruno Adams was another mate of mine. The Australian giant of Berlin. Bruno was known for his bands Once Upon a Time and Fatal Shore. He was also know for his legendary pub, and for his awfully big heart. Mick knew him well, so it wasn't difficult convincing him to throw down some backing vocals, which really helped bring the song home x

lyrics

CLOSING TIME
(lyrics by Bruno Adams)

It's closing time

Chairs up, legs high

Swept all the lovers' butts away

All but yours and mine
And I know you've been waiting half the night

To sit down and talk about

All those things we talked inside out

Over a thousand times, over a thousand nights
And it's closing time

Closing time, closing time

Nothing lives forever

Not even you and I
And I'll just take that corpse from the toilet out

Lock up, lights out

And tonight we'll go our separate ways

'Cause honey things just ain't the same
And it's closing time

Closing time, closing time

Nothing lives forever

Not even you and I
Goodnight sweet heart, goodnight

©2003 Bruno Adams

This ex-New Yorker is a wandering scoundrel who one might find hanging out in the shadowy corners of a pub at closing time. A international musical vagrant who might walk the streets with Stuart Staples, Nick Cave, and Rowland S. Howard... ... more
