"Artificial Light" as written by and Davies....
Saw her dancing in a disco
Standing underneath the light show
Illuminated by the artificial light

I disbelieved it at first sight
I couldn't tell if she was black or white
It didn't matter in the artificial light
Artificial light
Artificial light
Artificial light
Artificial light

First time I saw her she was easy to know
She had nothing to hide, she put it all out to show
She didn't cover up or try to conceal
I knew the way that she felt 'cause her expression was real
She didn't cover up the inside
She showed it all on the outside
Stark naked in the artificial light

Everybody gotta learn to relax
To be yourself you have to put on an act
Get together in the artificial light

And if I saw her in the light of day
I wouldn't know what to say, I wouldn't know what had happened
I only wanna know a world below
Where we can be ourselves beneath an artificial glow

And if you're scared what your friend'll say
And you're embarrassed by the light of day
Get together in the artificial light

Everybody let yourself go
Everybody do a floor show
Get together in the artificial light
Artificial light
Artificial light
Artificial light
Artificial light
