Songinfo

Vroeger was Ellie Goulding bang in het donker en laat dat nu de inspiratie zijn voor deze Britse zangeres om het nummer Lights te hebben geschreven. Het nummer stamt alweer uit 2010, maar werd in Engeland, toen het begin 2011 werd uitgebracht, niet zo'n grote hit. In de Verenigde Staten daarentegen bereikte de track de nummer 2 positie in de Billboard. Top 10 hits volgden in Polen, Canada en Slowakije. De RIAA heeft inmiddels bevestigt dat de track triple platinum heeft bereikt, mede doordat het nummer in de Verenigde Staten al meer dan 3 miljoen keer werd gedownload.

Songtekst

I had a way then losing it all on my own
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown
And I'm not sleeping now the dark is too hard to beat
And I'm not keeping now the strength I need to push me

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine It when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine It when I'm alone

Home

Noises, I play within my head
Touch my own skin and hope that I'm still breathing
And I think back to when my brother and my sister slept
In an unlocked place the only time I feel safe

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone

Home

Yeah, hee

Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
