Night Owl

  • Where the stables the skies will meet
    Through the lonely and deserted streets
    I've been wandering my way, back home.

    See the girl with the secret smile
    There goes my heart a million miles away where ever I roam.

    Praying for bright head lights
    Coming over the hills (I'll never go away again I swear)
    It's turning darker with the passing time,
    But I'll be here still (I hope you're not asleep when I get there)
    I'm a night owl waiting for you.

    Counting lights, and waters house
    I'm making ground, burning daylight hours
    Getting lost in rolling field, pastors.

    But as the stars began to fall
    I find myself tryna to count them all
    And wish on one to get me there faster.

    Praying for the bright head lights
    Coming over the hills (I'll never go away again I swear)
    It's turning darker with the passing time,
    But I'll be here still (I hope you're not asleep when I get there)
    I'm a night owl waiting for you.

    Hurry up, hurry up
    Before the morning
    I'll be staying up, staying up
    Dreaming of you

    Praying for bright head lights
    Coming over the hills (I'll never go away again I swear)
    It's turning darker with the passing time,
    But I'll be here still (I hope you're not asleep when I get there)
    I'm a night owl waiting for you.

  • Jake from High Island, TxThis was not my favorite song on the album Tornado. I skipped it often (Sorry). One morning I listened to a bit of it and it reminded me of a song I had heard years ago...it drove me nuts. I asked my wife and she felt the same. It was an old song done by LBT. Well, we all know THAT is not the case. I love this song, lyrics, music..the whole thing. I can't get it out of my mind. When I met my bride of 39 years I traveled every week...this song hits home for us. Thanks for doing it.
