  • Yeah, I had this little bad thing something like them tens
    She gave a nigga mad brain, something like The Wiz
    But you see the sad thing fuckin' with her is
    Is the chick ain't even have brains, dummy like a bitch
    So I tried to show her about the world and about just who we really are
    And where we've come and how we still have to go really far
    Like "baby, look at how we live broke on the boulevard"
    But all she ever want me to do is unhook her bra
    Then all I really want is for her to go down low
    Before you know it, she wet enough to get drowned slow
    And all that deep shit I was previously down for
    Replaced by freak shit I am currently down for
    You see I peeped it, pussy is power
    That proud feeling we get knowin' that pussy is ours
    And how it feels to feel that feeling
    You feeling when you be drillin' that shit
    Got her sayin' you be killin' that shit
    And all the pain the world cause she be healin' that shit
    And naw that ain't your girl, dog, but you be feelin' that chick
    And you just wanna tell her everything she might need
    But in the meantime it's lights please

    Lights please
    Lights please
    Turn off the lights,
    For now everything just seems so right,
    And how you make the darkness seem so bright,
    I'm feeling like things gon' be alright

    Lights please
    Lights please
    Turn off the lights,
    For now everything just seems so right,
    And how you make the darkness seem so bright,
    I'm feeling like things gon' be alright

    So now we in the hotel, mirrors on the ceiling
    She say she wanna blow Ls, I hear her and I'm willin'
    But every time I smoke, well, a nigga mind gone
    So that every word I spoke, well, I'm tryin' to put her on
    But she couldn't hear me
    I told her all about how we been living a lie
    And that they love to see us all go to prison or die
    Like "baby, look at how they show us on the TV screen"
    But all she ever want me to do is unzip her jeans
    Then all I really want is for her to get on top
    Before you know it, she workin', jerkin' it nonstop
    And all that next shit I was previously talkin'
    Is now that wet shit that I'm currently lost in
    And while that sweat drip, I am reminded
    All the times my brother told me that pussy is blindin'
    I'm findin', the more I grow, the more y'all seem to stay the same
    Don't even know the rules but yet y'all tryin' to play the game
    And ain't it shameful, how niggas blame hoes for givin' birth
    To a baby that took two to make, coward nigga you a fake
    How you gonna look in your son's face and turn your back
    Then go start another family, dawg, what type of shit is that?
    She said it's okay, rub my head and told me to relax
    Laid a nigga down proper, like she was recording tracks
    Said "I know you wanna change the world but for the night please
    Just reach over and hit the lights please"

    Lights please
    Lights please
    Turn off the lights,
    For now everything just seems so right,
    And how you make the darkness seem so bright,
    I'm feeling like things gon' be alright

    Lights please
    Lights please
    Turn off the lights,
    For now everything just seems so right,
    And how you make the darkness seem so bright,
    I'm feeling like things gon' be alright

    Lights please
    Lights please
    Lights please
    Lights please
    Turn off the lights
    Lights please Writer/s: JERMAINE A. COLE, JERMAINE L. COLE
