Harsh Lights
by Fun.

Album: Yet to be Titled (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This anthemic power ballad finds a bleary-eyed Nate Ruess singing about forgetting his troubles by partying all night.

    There's such a fine line
    But I'm not sleeping tonight,
    We all got scars
    I'm slipping into midnight under harsh lights
    And nothing here is bringing me down


    Fun. debuted the song on June 18, 2014 when they appeared as musical guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
