The Night Begins to Shine is an original song by the band B.E.R. that is lip-synced by Cyborg in the episode, "Slumber Party" episode before his bedtime. In "40%, 40%, 20%", the song makes another occurrence.

This time around, though, the whole episode is centered around it, as Cyborg can't stop singing it, on account of it giving him all of his willpower and later in the series, the song made a third occurrence as the focal point of a movie special event, "The Night Begins to Shine."

A five-part sequel to the four-part special aired on July 10, 2020, marketed as The Night Begins to Shine 2.

A spin-off show inspired by the song is in the works, titled Teen Titans Go! The Night Begins to Shine.

Lyrics

INTRO

VERSE 1:

I saw you dance
from the corner
I caught your name
in a conversation

BRIDGE 1:

Playing hard to get,
But I can't understand.

CHORUS:

When I look at you,
I see the story in your eyes.
When we're dancing,
the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine,
the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine.
When we're dancing,
the night begins to shine.

VERSE 2:

Talk 'til dawn,
my heart was racing.
I took you home,
in the driving rain.

BRIDGE 2:

Had my mind made up.
I wanna feel your touch.

CHORUS:

When I look at you,
I see the story in your eyes.
When we're dancing,
the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine,
the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine.
When we're dancing,
the night begins to shine.

VERSE 3:

The night begins to shine.
Tonight (the night begins to shine)

BRIDGE 2:

Had my mind made up,
I wanna feel your touch.

CHORUS:

When I look at you,
I see the story in your eyes.

When we're dancing,

the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine,
the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine,
the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine,
the night begins to shine.
Night begins to shine.
When we're dancing,
the night begins to shine (night begins to shine)
the night begins to shine (night begins to shine)
Night begins to shine,
the night begins to shine (the night begins to shine)
