    Lyrics:
    Cue the music out the driveway
    Slow summer on a Friday
    Here we go again, wild in the wind
    Mama knows she’s gonna be late

    Hit the party just to watch her dance
    Good to go when she grabs your hand
    Like a shot from a gun, it’s a dead run
    The first leg of a getaway plan

    You burn rubber when you smoke them tires
    Day’s gone and the night’s on fire

    She’s telling you turn off the highway
    The sunset melts all the blue away
    Blackbird watching on the telephone wire
    Whiskey on her lips and the night’s on fire

    Littered with stars close enough to touch
    July promise in the back of that truck
    Her every move was taking you higher
    You try to play it cool but the night’s on fire

    She’s a seat laid back, a boy’s dream
    Drawin’ hearts in the window steam
    She’s a gettin’ you right, knows what you like
    And pours it on like gasoline

    When you know what you’re headed to
    What’s a red blooded boy to do

    She’s telling you turn off the highway
    The sunset melts all the blue away
    Blackbird watching on the telephone wire
    Whiskey on her lips and the night’s on fire

    Littered with stars close enough to touch
    July promise in the back of that truck
    Her every move was taking you higher
    You try to play it cool but the night’s on fire
    You try to play it cool but the night’s on fire

    She’s telling you turn off the highway
    The sunset melts all the blue away
    Blackbird watching on the telephone wire
    Whiskey on her lips and the night’s on fire

    Littered with stars close enough to touch
    July promise in the back of that truck
    Her every move was taking you higher
    You try to play it cool but the night’s on fire
    You try to play it cool but the night’s on fire

    You try to play it cool but the night’s on fire

    You just made me the happiest girl on earth. I kept seeing on Twitter that his new song was being played on some stations and I had yet to hear it. David has one of the best male voices in country music, although I can't say that I think this song really showcases his voice like the songs from his earlier albums. It seems very Sam Hunt/Keith Urban-esque to me. The lyrics are good and hopefully it will get David some strong airplay and a #1, although history has said that one #1 hit from an album doesn't guarantee the follow-up singles will get the same treatment. Honestly, though, this man is so talented and if he wants to go more upbeat and uptempo and try to get played on the radio, I will not fault him for it, because he is a true talent.

    This is definitely more "Whatever She's Got" David Nail than the "Kiss You Tonight"/"Strangers on a Train"/"Turning Home"/"Let it Rain"/"Brand New Day" David Nail that I love. But it makes sense he's going along the WSG route since that was a big hit for him and this is the lead single. I didn't like Night's on Fire all that much when I first heard it, but it's actually grown on me a lot lately and I like it a lot more than I ever liked WSG.

    I agree that it's sad that David can't seem to follow up with his lead singles that have done well. Like The Sound of a Million Dreams after Let it Rain and Kiss You Tonight (which is brilliant) after Whatever She's Got. Hopefully if this does well his second single can keep the momentum and that he actually gets to release 3 singles this time.

    I will keep listening to this song and I'm sure it will grow on me. I ended up liking WSG quite a bit and the rest of the "I'm A Fire" album was amazing and made up for any attempts to be radio friendly with WSG. Songs like Burnin' Bed and The Secret are what will always keep me coming back to David. My least favorite song on IAF is actually Galveston. It was hard to get used to the IAF album as a whole after TSOAMD, which I thought was an amazing album. I liked the piano influence and the piano EP/singles with TSOAMD, Half-Mile Hill, and Someone Like You were the most amazing thing ever. That album had it's duds too, though - always smh at Grandpa's Farm, lol.
