  • Tell me have you ever wanted
    Someone so much it hurts?
    Your lips keep trying to speak
    But you just can't find the words
    Well I had this dream once
    I held it in my hands

    She was the purest beauty
    But not the common kind
    She had a way about her
    That made you feel alive
    And for a moment
    You made the world stand still
    Yeah we owned the night

    You had me dim the lights
    You danced just like a child
    The wine spilled on your dress
    And all you did was smile
    Yeah, it was perfect
    I hold it in my mind
    Yeah, we owned the night

    When the summer rolls around
    And the sun starts sinking down
    I still remember you
    Oh, I remember you
    And I wonder where you are

    Are you looking at those
    Same stars again?
    Do you remember when?

    We woke under a blanket
    All tangled up in skin
    Not knowing in that moment
    We'd never speak again
    But it was perfect
    I never will forget
    When we owned the night

    Yeah, we owned the night
    Oh oh woah oh
    Oh oh woah oh
    Oh oh woah oh
