The Nighttime – Coming Out of the Dark

The Nighttime – Coming Out of the Dark

October, known for spookiness like Halloween. The time of year where creatures of all kinds come out of the dark. This song embodies that. The Nighttime, a new song by Jeffrey Scott Lawrence, makes its debut. Read what he says was the inspiration for his latest single, The Nighttime.

The Process of Creating a New Single

As I was listening to one of my favorite artists’ music, I discovered something that would make a great sample. Once I got a hold of it, I was inspired to create something around it. I started with a beat. I didn’t know what direction it would go in as far as genre.

The song building begins, JSL continues… “Eventually I realized it would make a cool song…something with vocals. As the process progressed, I found a direction. I wanted it to be something I’ve never done. Something mysterious, spooky. The sound was pointing in that direction.

I had a friend that had recently passed. Back in the day we were as thick as thieves. I found an old voicemail she had left for me. As I listened to it, I knew exactly where the song would go. I wrote the lyrics around the voicemail, as a tribute to her, and the Nighttime was born.

The Nighttime (Lyrics)

Verse 1:
I own you
You are mine ’til the end of time
Forever beautiful
I reach into your mind
When the moons in the sky
I come

Hook:
I’ll see you in the nighttime
I’ll see you when it’s dark outside
After the sun goes down
I’ll come around

Verse 2:
You need me
And I need you too
But you’re not the only one
Yet have no fear
For I will protect you
And no one can harm you
Forever my love

Hook:
I’ll see you in the nighttime
I’ll see you when it’s dark outside
After the sun goes down
I’ll come around
I’ll see you in the nighttime
I’ll see you when it’s dark outside
After the sun goes down
I’ll come around
