lyrics

Brett Hannum / James House

Desert sun beats down on your soul
A million miles from home
All eyes are on you if you go in in the day
Never go out alone

But we owned the night
Ghosts with green eyes
We owned the night
Someday I’ll be back in the light
But now
We owned the night

They think they’re safe behind their walls
But we know who they are
We can see into the shadows
There’s no place too far

But we owned the night
Ghosts with green eyes
We owned the night
Someday I’ll be back in the light
But now
We owned the night

And when I make it back home someday
I will remember
The quiet before the storm
Then the rattle and shake of the thunder

I’m back home now safe and sound
Wife and daughters by my side
Fought em over there so we don’t have to fight over here
Left em no place to hide

Cause we owned the night
Ghosts with green eyes
We owned the night
Now I’m back in the light
Cause
We owned the night
