"Don't Turn The Lights On" as written by and David Macklovitch Patrick Gemayel....
There must be another way
When she's gone to a better place
And loneliness will hurt you if you can't get through the night
Then the moment starts to fade
And dawn is just an hour away
I feel she's watching over and it gets me through the night

It makes me wonder what you'd say
It's taking me back to the month of May
When I watched you do it (All night)
I'm thinking back to what we'd share
In many ways I'm already there
And I watched you do it

Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark

Another walk to take
Another lonesome evening spent without you there
And only those who hurt you
Will say patience is a virtue
And it's been so long
And I can't think about it
No, I can't figure it out
It's just the way you're feeling
Every time that you're appealing
Leaves no room for doubt

It makes me wonder what you'd say
It's taking me back to the month of May
When I watched you do it (All night)
I'm thinking back to what we'd shared
In many ways I'm already there
And I watched you do it

Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark

Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark
Don't turn the lights on
'Cause tonight I want to see you in the dark

    General CommentA broken relationship that the person can't get through and keeps reviving in his imaginations. Sad, but catchy tune.

    General CommentHOW AM I FIRST!!!!!

    This song is deffinetly about mystery and not knowing what's coming next.


    although not only does the song title and the lyrics give that away all around good song!

    General CommentIt's about having lost someone, and the loneliness that brings. Either through death or other means, but I have a strong feeling it's the first. The chorus is just a clever way of saying he wants to be able to see that person when he closes his eyes.
