"Lonely Night" is a song by Fifth Harmony included in their third studio album, Fifth Harmony, which debuted on August 25, 2017.

BackgroundEdit

“Lonely Night” is the sixth track of Fifth Harmony’s self-titled album. The track which was written by Normani and Dinah finds them asserting to a boy that they are able to see-through his lies and if they aren’t treated right, “it’s gonna be a lonely night” for him.

Dinah: Okay, so Mani and I wrote this one. We were in the room with The Monsters and the Strangerz and I asked them, "Hey, you know, what if we changed this? I want to do something different." We went a little rocker-reggae on them, and then did something unexpected in the chorus where it just drops.
"Lonely Night" is something about your man — you’re basically warning him, like, "If you try to do this, just know that you’re going to have to have a lonely night. And if you want me, you’re going to have to do this to have me, to keep me." It’s something personal to us. [Normani and I] spoke about it, and I think that’s why it’s so raw and real to us, and why all the girls and our team vibe to it very well, because it’s so honest and true. Maybe it’s happened to you before, maybe you have a friend that’s going through something and you were there for her and you’re backing her up. I just love it so much, especially in the bridge when Ally has to spell "L-O-N-E-L-Y." Just the way Ally delivers it is my favorite, because she becomes so hood out of nowhere.[1]
Lauren: What I love about this song is the range of the musicality. I had never heard a song like this before, and that made me really happy. The transition of the production is just crazy. The zones you go in melodically are really cool — and as a vocal performance, by all of us, it’s just so dope. The group dynamics are on! And the content of the song, it’s giving a guy a breakdown of what you need from him in order to [be] with him. He’s gotta be of a certain caliber and you’re watching.[2]

LyricsEdit

Normani:
Now that I got your attention, you better listen up
Cause I got questions
So why you late night texting?
And why you liking every pic of my best friend?
Get ya, get ya, get ya shit together, uh uh
Get ya, get ya, get ya shit together, uh uh

Boy, I got 20/20 vision
And that's the reason Ima keep my distance

Dinah:
Must be confused about me, must be confused about me
Boy, no room for fools around me, eh eh eh

If you don't treat ya mama right, bye-bye, bye bye
If you got another chick on the side, bye bye, bye bye
You look everywhere but my eyes, bye bye, bye bye
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night, bye bye

Fifth Harmony:
Lonely lonely lonely lonely
Lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night
Lonely lonely lonely lonely
Lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night

Lauren:
If you don't learn the lesson
You can get yourself in permanent detention
If you want my love and affection
You better make a good impression
Get ya, get ya, get ya shit together, uh uh
Get ya, get ya, get ya shit together, uh uh

Yeah, I got 20/20 vision
And that's the reason Ima keep my distance

Dinah (Lauren)
Must be confused about me (about me), must be confused about me (about me)
Boy, no room for fools around me (around me), eh eh eh

If you don't treat ya mama right, bye-bye, bye bye
If you got another chick on the side, bye bye, bye bye (You know that I want you baby)
You look everywhere but my eyes (oh no), bye bye, bye bye
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night, bye bye

Fifth Harmony:
Lonely lonely lonely lonely
Lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night
Lonely lonely lonely lonely
Lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night

Ally:
This is your woman, so get it right
If you don't, then I'll say bye-bye
Have a L-O-N-E-L-Y
La-la-la lonely night, la-la-la lonely night (Dinah: La-la-la lonely night)
This is your woman, so get it right
If you don't, then I'll say bye-bye
Have a L-O-N-E-L-Y
La-la-la lonely night, la-la-la lonely night

Dinah (Normani):
La-la-la lonely night, la-la-la lonely night (Ally: oh)

If you don't treat ya mama right, bye-bye (bye-bye), bye bye (bye-bye)
If you got another chick on the side, bye bye (bye-bye), bye bye (bye-bye)
You look everywhere but my eyes (Normani: woah), bye bye, bye bye
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night, bye bye
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night, bye bye
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely night, bye bye
