    Take Back the Night
    Released


      About "Take Back the Night"

      Take Back The Night is the lead single from Justin Timberlake's latest album - the second installment in his 20/20 Experience series. Timbaland, who has worked as producer with Timberlake on much of his music since his 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds, teams up here with Justin again to create a sleek, sparse Disco-influenced beat built for the dance floor. This, along with the Justin's cool lyrical style and a stylish video shot on location in Chinatown, New York suggest a throwback to the carefree nightlife of 1970s Disco, further cementing Timberlake's role as a worthy heir to Michael Jackson's throne.

      Lyrics for Justin Timberlake - "Take Back the Night"

      Yeah, uh, feels good, don't it?
      Listen, uh

      Yeah, this was your city
      You did it all and more, broke every law except for one, babe
      Attraction, are you ready
      I know you feel it
      Pull you nearer 'til you feel it again, oh

      I wanna do something right
      But we can do something better
      Ain't no time like tonight
      And we ain't trying to save it 'til later
      Stay out here living the life
      Nobody cares who we are tomorrow
      You got that lil' something I like
      A little something I've been wanting to borrow
      Tonight's the night, come on surrender
      I won't lead your love astray, astray, yeah
      Your love's a weapon
      Give your body some direction
      That's my aim
      Then, we could

      Take back the night
      Come on, use me up until there's nothing left
      Take back the night
      Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can't catch your breath
      Take back the night
      Ooh, don't know when the sun is rising next
      Take back the night
      So if the feeling's right, then raise your glass and let's

      Take back the night, take back the night
      They gon' try to shut us down, but I'll be damned if we gon' let them
      Take back the night, take back the night
      You know you gon' mess around and find out there ain't no one better
      Take back the night, oh
      Yeah

      Rare, there's not too many
      No one but you and crowded rooms, we can do anything (yeah)
      Attraction can drive you crazy
      The way you move, you go crazy, that's incentive for me

      I wanna do something right
      But we can do something better
      Ain't no time like tonight
      And we ain't trying to save it 'til later
      Stay out here living the life
      Nobody cares who we are tomorrow
      You got that lil' something I like
      A little something I've been wanting to borrow
      Tonight the night's, come on surrender
      I won't lead your love astray, astray, yeah
      Your love's a weapon
      Give your body some direction
      That's my aim
      Then, we could

      Take back the night
      Come on, use me up until there's nothing left
      Take back the night
      Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can't catch your breath
      Take back the night
      Ooh, don't know when the sun is rising next
      Take back the night
      So if the feeling's right, raise your glass and let's

      Take back the night, take back the night
      They gon' try to shut us down, but I'll be damned if we gon' let them
      Take back the night, take back the night
      You know you gon' mess around and find out there ain't no one better
      Take back the night

      Break it down now,
      Break break it down,
      Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, doo, doo, doo
      Yeah, yeah, oh
      And the horns say, alright

      We don't know when the sun is rising next
      Take back the night
      The feeling's right, raise your glass and let's
      Take back the night
      Take back the night
      But they gon' try to shut us down, I'll be damned if we gon' let them
      Take back the night alright
      Take back the night
      You know you gon' mess around and find out there ain't no one better
      And the horns say, alright

      And the horns say, feels good to me
      And the horns say, alright
      Ooh it's taking over
