We Own the Night is a song performed by Selena Gomez & the Scene featuring singer-songwriter Pixie Lott. It appears as the fourth track on their album, When the Sun Goes Down.

Background

This song was written by the British singer-songwriter Pixie Lott, whose hit singles in her native country include the chart-toppers “Mama Do” and “Boys and Girls.” Selena told MTV News this is her mom’s favorite song. “It’s very sweet,” she said. “It’s kind of a ballad, but not really. It’s basically about living in the moment; it’s about enjoying right now. I’m very much enjoying right now. I’m in a good place.” Some of Pixie Lott’s vocals from her original demo were kept as backing for Selena’s version.

Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Is it alright, if I’m with you for the night
Hope you don’t mind, if you stay by my side
We can drive in your car, somewhere into the dark
Pull over and watch the stars
We can dance, we can sing, do whatever you think
As long as I’m with you

[Chorus:]
When we are together it's the time of our lives
We can do whatever, be whoever we’d like
Spend the weekend dancing cause we sleep when we die
Don’t have to worry about nothing
We own the night! (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh
We own the night! (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh
We own the night (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh
We own the night (ah-ah-oh)

[Verse 2:]
It’s all a blur,
It’s getting late but I don’t care
I don’t know where we’ll end up
And that’s okay

We can drive in your car, somewhere into the dark
Pull over and watch the stars
We can dance, we can sing, do whatever you think
As long as I’m with you

[Chorus:]
When we are together it's the time of our lives
We can do whatever, be whoever we’d like
Spend the weekend dancing cause we sleep when we die
Don’t have to worry about nothing
We own the night! (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh
We own the night! (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh

[Bridge:]
Nothing lasts forever
Let’s live it up when we’re together
Nothing lasts forever
So let’s live it up, just do whatever

[Chorus:]
When we are together it's the time of our lives
We can do whatever, be whoever we’d like
Spend the weekend dancing cause we sleep when we die
Don’t have to worry about nothing
We own the night!

When we are together its the time of our lives
We can do whatever, be whoever we’d like
Spend the weekend dancing cause we sleep when we die
Don’t have to worry about nothing
We own the night! (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh
We own the night (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh
We own the night (ah-ah-oh) ah-ah-oh
We own the night (ah-ah-oh)
