  • I wish that this night would never be over
    There's plenty of time to sleep when we die
    So let's just stay awake until we grow older
    If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

    I don't wanna let a minute get away
    'Cause we got no time to lose
    None of us are promised to see tomorrow
    And what we do is ours to choose

    Forget about the sunrise
    Fight the sleep in your eyes
    I don't wanna miss a second with you
    Let's stay this way forever
    It's only getting better if we want it to

    But you know I wish that this night would never be ov
    There's plenty of time to sleep when we die
    So let's just stay awake until we grow older
    If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

    It's so hard to think this would fade away
    But what goes up must come down
    Why can't we just live life with no consequence
    And always living the now

    Forget about the sunrise
    Fight the sleep in your eyes
    I don't wanna miss a second with you
    Let's stay this way forever
    And only get it's better if we want it to

    You know I wish that this night would never be over
    There's plenty of time to sleep when we die
    So let's just stay awake until we grow older
    If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never Writer/s: Ari Levine, Bruno Mars, Henry Russell Walter, Henry Walter, Lukasz Gottwald, Philip Lawrence, Phillip Lawrence
