Little Big Town – Night Owl lyrics

Where the steeples and the skyways meet
Through the lonely and deserted streets
I’ve been wandering my way back home
To the girl with the secret smile
That holds my heart a million miles away
Wherever I roam

Praying for the bright headlights coming over the hill
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

County lines and water towers
I’m making ground burning daylight hours
Getting lost in rolling fields and pastures
But as the stars begin to fall
I find myself trying to count them all
And wish on one to get me there faster

(Repeat Chorus)
Hurry up, hurry up
Before the morning
I’ll be staying up, staying up
Dreaming of you
(Repeat Chorus)
