History Is Made At Night Lyrics Smash


IVY
Put down the playbook
Cause the things I wanna show you can’t be written down
Let my lips do the teaching

MICHAEL
Turn off the camera
Kick your shoes off for this scene you should be sitting down
Yeah sitting close enough for reaching

IVY
Turn down the lamp
For the last page has been turned

MICHAEL
When the dawns breaking through

IVY
We can stop and review all the lessons you’ll have learned

IVY & MICHAEL
Cause history is made at night so close
The books turn off the light and listen
Let my heart be the teacher
No one here to disapprove
As we review the lessons you’ve been missing
Let the moon be our only light
Cause history is made at night

MICHAEL
I see the questions burning in your eyes
Or is it just reflections
Mm of the stars high above you

IVY
Oh I’m just your student and
I hope you won’t be shy please make corrections
Yeah on the sweetest way to love you

MICHAEL
Come whisper close tell me just when to say when

IVY
Then we’ll sleep through the day

MICHAEL
Then whenever you say that’s when school begins again

IVY & MICHAEL
Cause history is made at night
So close the books turn off the light and listen
Let my heart be the teacher
No one here to disapprove
As we review the lessons you’ve been missing
Let the moon be our only light
Cause history is made at night

IVY
Someday they’ll write lots of books
About our fame and glory

MICHAEL
But if all their reports are just movies and sports
They’ll be missing the whole story

IVY & MICHAEL
Cause history is made at night
So close the books turn off the light and listen
Let my heart be the teacher
No one here to disapprove
As we review the lessons you’ve been missing
Let the moon be our only light

Cause history is made at night
Yes our history was made at night
