"Light Up the Sky" as written by William Ryan Key, Sean Michael Wellman-mackin, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons, Peter Michael Mosely and Ryan Michael Mendez....
You're making a choice to live like this
And all of the noise - I am silence
We already know how it ends tonight
You run in the dark through a firefight
And I would explode just to save your life
Yeah, I would explode

Let me light up the sky
Light it up for you
Let me tell you why
I would die for you
Let me light up the sky

I can't find a wall to pin this to
They're all coming down since I've found you
I just wanna be where you are tonight
I run in the dark looking for some light
And how will we know if we just don't try
We won't ever know

Let me light up the sky
Light it up for you
Let me tell you why
I would die for you
Let me light up the sky
Light it up for you
Let me make this mine
I'll ignite for you

Let me light up the sky
Just for you tonight
Let me help you fly
'Cause you won't have time
To cover your eyes
Or get your disguise
They won't ask you why
They'll just watch you die

And it's still so hard to be who you are
So you play this part
And the show goes on
But you've come this far with a broken heart
Yeah, you've come this far
And you're broken

Let me light up the sky
Light it up for you
Let me tell you why
I would die for you
Let me light up the sky
Light it up for you
Let me make this mine
I'll ignite for you
I'll ignite for you

Let me light up the sky
Light it up for you
Let me tell you why
I would die for you

And it's still so hard to be who you are
But you've come this far with a broken heart
And it's still so hard to be who you are
But you've come this far and you're broken

Let me light up the sky
Let me light up the sky

    General CommentThe song is about someone he fell in love with she has a broken heart right now. He is saying that you came this far but he will light up the sky be the new day for her. The day being the new guy in her life and how he just wants her that bad....

    General CommentThis song is so Beautiful! I mean, i know hes talking about a rather morbid subject, but just the notion of this guy, telling some girl, presumeably that he would die for her, is beautiful. I guess hes kind of saying that, he would "explode" to "light up the sky" for this girl who's been through so much as shes "Come this far with a broken heart" Just to create something pretty for her. He is trying to convince her broken and untrusting heart that the would be good together and that he loves her so much he would practically do anything for her!
    Well thats what this song means to me....
    p.s YELLOWCARD ARE MY B*TCHHOUSE!

    General CommentFirst when i heard this song i thought it wasn't as good as fighting and it kinda disappointed me when they say they're goign to release it as the first single. but when i heard more of it it sounded more and more aweseom and it started to give me shivers!! i think the Paper Walls is going to be really good.

    I think Ryan is writing a song about his career since he moved to LA and its hard to be who you are when you're among all this 'lights and sounds'. He's trying to find peace and to save those whose hearts have been broken?!?!

    i know this doesn't make sense, but anyway...

    General CommentAwesome song, awesome lirics and awesome meaning, for me this is a love song about a guy who would do anything for the girl, like "light up her sky". Ryan just stated in their MySpace page that this is going to be the first single of Paper Walls. Great pick, I think.

    General CommentGreat song, no doubt going to be my favorite off the new album. Talks about how much you love someone and how you'd do everything. For some odd reason, I kept remembering this girl Steph who I asked to prom, but kindly turned me down. Even though many would not consider her the hottest girl in school, it's this instinct that she's the first girl that pops up in my mind when I hear the song. Don't worry, I won't ignite for her.
