Lights

Album: The Beast In Its Tracks (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • American singer-songwriter Josh Ritter told MSN CA why he closes his seventh album The Beast In Its Tracks with this track. He explained: "I really believe there's a thing about a record lifting off smoothly, and landing gently. I don't believe in ever ending a record with an un-ambiguous emotion. 'Lights' had that emotion of you're beginning again. You're apologizing to someone if you're acting strange because you're wowed by someone."
