"Praying For Daylight" Lyrics

4.7 / 5
Song updated, review now!
I don't wanna spend another lonely night
Ooh, Ooh-Ooh-Ooh-Ooh

I've got the lights turned up
The door is locked, the bedroom TV's on
Doing the only thing that gets me through the night
Since you've been gone

Praying for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
So I can act like my whole life ain't going wrong
Baby come back to me I swear I'll make it right
Don't make me spend another lonely night
Praying for daylight (Praying for daylight)

I made a bad miscalculation
Betting you would never leave
'Coz if you're getting on with your new life
Then where does that leave me

Praying for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
So I can act like my whole life ain't going wrong
Baby come back to me I swear I'll make it right
Don't make me spend another lonely night (Spending)
Praying for daylight

(Praying for daylight) Praying for daylight
(Praying for daylight) Praying for daylight
Hoping that I didn't wait too long (I didn't wait too long)
That this is just the dark before the dawn

Deep in my heart I know
That you love me as much as I love you (You know I love you, Girl)
And that you must be lying somewhere
Looking up to Heaven too

Praying for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
So I can act like my whole life ain't going wrong
Baby come back to me I swear I'll make it right
Don't make me spend another lonely night
(Make me spend another lonely night)

Praying for daylight, waiting for that morning sun
So I can act like my whole life ain't going wrong
Baby come back to me I swear I'll make it right
Don't make me spend another lonely night
(Make me spend another lonely night) Praying for daylight

(Praying for daylight) Praying for daylight
I don't wanna spend another lonely night
I don't wanna spend another lonely night (Praying for daylight)

Praying for daylight
I don't wanna spend another lonely night
Ooh-Ooh-Ooh-Ooh, praying for daylight

About"Prayin' for Daylight" is the debut single written by Steve Bogard and Rick Giles, and recorded by American country music group Rascal Flatts. It was released in February 2000 as the lead-off single from the band's self-titled debut album. It peaked at #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart.

The song is a moderate up-tempo song in which the narrator's lover has just left him, and he has not been able to sleep.

On the band's website, Jay DeMarcus commented on the recording of "Prayin' For Daylight". "The first single. That was the first tune we ever cut as a group, and the first song that Lyric Street ever heard us do. It was very, very instrumental in getting our deal. We love the song. It's a very memorable kind of chorus and it just showcases what we can do as well as the band. I think if somebody said tell us what you're all about, we could play that song and they'd get a pretty good picture of what we can do. "Prayin' For Daylight" was special because at the last minute we changed the feel of the whole song. The demo was really, really different and what's become the little, hooky guitar riff, that happened moments before we went to tape."

"Prayin' for Daylight" debuted at number 60 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of March 4, 2000. The song spent thirty-one weeks on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, reaching a peak of number 3.

The single's B-side, "Long Slow Beautiful Dance," spent two weeks on the same chart in December 2000, peaking at number 73.
