SLS – “I Don’t Want This Night To end” By Luke Bryan

This week Jim Adams has prompted us with End/Finish/Over/Stop for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. Appropriate for the craziness we have lived with for the past few months. I don’t think COVID-19 is OVER. I don’t think it is FINISHED and I don’t think this is the END even though states are beginning to open like Florida who was barely closed a month. Make it STOP!

So, I brought back a somewhat older tune belonging to Luke Bryan, “I Don’t Want This Night To End” about a guy meeting a girl and it being a magical first night together hanging out.

Who doesn’t love Luke Bryan? Anyone? He is a hot American country music singer who began his career as a songwriter for other country music icons like Travis Tritt and Billy Currington before signing with Capital Nashville in 2007. Luke has had a string of hits (23) as of this post and continues to put out new music. In 2013, Luke was named “Entertainer of the Year” by both the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) and the Country Music Association (CMA). The two most prestigious awards in country music and the top honor for both.

Luke continues to entertain us while being a judge on American Idol alongside Lionel Richie and Katy Perry. He is a good looking country boy from Georgia that brings flare and harmony to the show. His current “Proud to be Right Here” tour has been postponed or rescheduled through July and and sporadically through the rest of the year. Several dates have no current update. I guess only time will tell if the show will go on anytime in 2020.

SONG FACTS

  • Co-written by Luke Bryan with Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip.
  • Released in September, 2011 as the second single to Luke’s album “Tailgates & Tanlines”.
  • It was Luke’s third number one hit.
  • Reached # 1 U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay.
  • Reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 as a crossover hit.
  • It was certified Platinum 4 times with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

“I Don’t Want This Night To End”

Girl, I know I don't know you
But your pretty little eyes so blue
Are pulling me in like the moon on your skin
I'm so glad you trusted me, this light up on this dusty sea
And let your hair down, and get outta town
Got the stars comin' out
Over my hood
And all I know now
Is it's going good
You got your hands up
You're rocking in my truck
You got the radio on
You're singing every song
I'm set on cruise control
I'm slowing losing hold of everything I got
You're looking so damn hot
And I don't know what road we're on
Or where we've been from starin' at you
Girl, all I know is I don't want this night to end
Gonna cuss the morning
When it comes
'Cause I know that the rising sun
Ain't no good for me
'Cause you'll have to leave
Gonna make the most of every mile
Do anything to make your smile
Land on my lips
And get drunk on your kiss
The clock on the dash
Says 3:35
There's plenty of gas
And the night's still alive
You got your hands up
You're rocking in my truck
You got the radio on
You're singing every song
I'm set on cruise control
I'm slowing losing hold of everything I got
You're looking so damn hot
And I don't know what road we're on
Or where we've been from starin' at you
Girl, all I know is I don't want this night to end
You got your hands up
You're rocking in my truck
You got the radio on
You're singing every song
I'm set on cruise control
I'm slowing losing hold of everything I've got
You're looking so damn hot
And I don't know what road we're on
Or where we've been from starin' at you
Girl, all I know is I don't want this night to end
I don't want this night to end
No I don't want this night to end

  1. Not a bad tune. Luke is the better of the bunch called ” Bro-Country” here in Texas. A pickup truck, some beer, a dirt road, and a girl seems to sum up the new country. Willie and Waylon got it right, but Luke is trying.

    • He’s still pretty cross over. I miss the old country with Waylon, Willie and the boys. I’m from Texas and was hanging out in the honkytonks 35 years ago when I was a yougun. 😊
