"Light Up The Sky" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
Oh

Yea, we're all fast breakers comin' outta the gates
Takin' chances we're the crash an' burn
Yea, there is a way with beauty but you never gave a love
Cross the line where none return

Oh, I watch my television
Almost lost my mind
It said, open your eyes leave it all behind

I heard the wind a whisperin'
Strong magic comin' on
They comin' out for sure

Come see your children, yea
They're lightin' up the skies
Won't recognize them anymore

Wolves at my door, wised up quick
Turned here an' gone, from on the go
Seems the old folks who come up short
Were the pretty little kids who didn't want it, no

I had some crazy vision
One I can't deny it
It said, open your eyes leave it all behind

I heard the wind a whisperin'
Strong magic comin' on
They comin' out for sure

Come see your children, yea
They're lightin' up the skies
You won't, recognize them anymore

Oh, mama, see the firelights
Oh, we're comin' out tonight
Oh, mama, see the firelights
Oh, lightin' up the sky
Light 'em up

Lightin' up the sky
Lightin' up the sky
Lightin' up the sky
Lightin' up the sky
Light 'em up

    General CommentOh and you might want to put it in paragraphs next time. It would help it look less like a brick wall and more like lyrics.

    Lyric CorrectionNot "I had to pay admission when I came tonight."

    It is "I had a crazy vision, one I can't deny."

    General CommentUm, was it the chauffeured driver the morning of the concert? I was all in black on my way to work? Blended right in with the neighborhood. Nice touch. From time to time I had to caution the over dressed from sticking out like sore thumbs. And then the heart might have been missed but someone drove around the front and called to say, there’s a pink glowy thing in front. The heart. How apropos. (Smile)

    General CommentYour lyrics are beyond crap. The mama firelight thing only happens once. You didn't include the full version of it either time. Like judyneric said it's "I had some crazy vision one a can't deny. It said...." Do some research instead of just guessing. I agree with you jud.
