Our Night To Shine

Album: Back to Us (2017)
  • Every heartland, farm town, fence post son
    Every west coast big break queen
    All you high rise, skyline, concrete kids
    Every zip code in between
    Grab your first time front porch pounding heart
    And gas up your Chevrolet
    Cause the sun's half gone and it won't be long
    Til' we make our getaway

    This is our time
    Our night to shine
    Oh take my hand, hold on tight
    Don't look back to the morning light
    Let the world go, player spin slow
    Tell tomorrow not to hurry, we're just fine
    This is our night to shine

    Pin a flower on that sport coat
    Lace up your new church shoes
    Grab your favorite pair of denim
    Patched up knees and faded blue
    Fold two twenty's in your pocket
    Kiss your mama at the door
    Take a picture perfect post card
    And send it all across the world

    This is our time
    Our night to shine
    Oh take my hand, hold on tight
    Don't look back to the morning light
    Let the world go, player spin slow
    Tell tomorrow not to hurry, we're just fine
    This is our night

    Rock back on your heels
    Lean into the crowd
    Take hold of this chance
    There's no backing down

    This is our night
    Our night to shine
    Oh take my hand, hold on tight
    Don't look back til' the morning light
    Let the world go
    Let it spin slow
    Tell tomorrow not to hurry
    We're just fine

    This is our night (this is our night)
    This is our night to shine (this is our night)

    (This is our night)
    (This is our night)
    (This is our night to shine)
    (This is our night)
    (This is our night)
    (This is our night to shine)
    (This is our night)

    This is our time
    This is our night to shine

    (This is our night)
    (This is our night)
    (This is our night to shine) Writer/s: CHRIS DESTEFANO, GARY LEVOX, TRAVIS HILL
