Lights Come On

Album: They Don't Know (2016)
Charted: 43
  • You're a crack-of-dawn, Monday-morning, coffee strong
    Poured everything you got into a paycheck Friday night
    You're a Powerstroke diesel, backhoe-riding king of beers, eighteen-wheeler
    Driving, living life in between the lines
    Of clocking in and quitting time

    But then the six-string circus comes to town
    We hang them speakers over the crowd

    When the lights come on, everybody's screaming
    Lighters in the sky, yeah, everybody's singing
    Every word to every song to a girl to take it home tonight
    When the lights come on, everybody's feeling
    A hallelujah high from the floor to the ceiling
    Yeah, the drink that we're drinking, the smoke that we're smoking
    The party we throw, it's going all night long
    When the lights come on
    When the lights come on

    You're a little shy thing with a wild side
    On a night like this, you just can't hide
    'Cause it's time to live it up
    So come on and raise your cup

    If we're talkin' 'bout memories, yeah, we're gonna make 'em
    Talkin' 'bout rules, you know we're gonna break 'em

    When the lights come on, everybody's screaming
    Lighters in the sky, yeah, everybody's singing
    Every word to every song to a girl to take it home tonight
    When the lights come on, everybody's feeling
    A hallelujah high from the floor to the ceiling
    Yeah, the drink that we're drinking, the smoke that we're smoking
    The party we throw, it's going all night long
    When the lights come on
    When the lights come on

    Yeah, we all the same 'cause we thinkin' the same thing
    (We all the same 'cause we thinkin' the same thing)
    We on the same page 'cause we sippin' the same drink
    (We on the same page 'cause we sippin' the same drink)
    Here's a little something to thank y'all for showing up
    Aldean and the boys about to blow it up, haha

    When the lights come on, everybody's screaming
    Lighters in the sky, yeah, everybody's singing
    Every word to every song to a girl to take it home tonight
    When the lights come on, everybody's feeling
    A hallelujah high from the floor to the ceiling
    Yeah, the drink that we're drinking, the smoke that we're smoking
    The party we throw, it's going all night long
    When the lights come on
    When the lights come on
    Your boy's blowing it up
    It's going all night long
    When the lights come on Writer/s: Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Jimmy Robbins, Jordan Schmidt, Brad Warren, Brett Warren
