"Light It Up" as written by Ryan Tedder and Brent Kutzle....
Like a stone you watch it fall
And let it roll out over the fields
You take your time and watch it crawl
Like you're the big shot symphony
But oh what would you say if I told you 'the pitch is wrong' with a smile?
I took a trip to wonderland gonna get you nowhere by a mile

I, I could light it up for you
I, I could light it up for you
We, we ain't got a shot to lose
Put it on but fade it out tell you that you weren't enough
Acting like your favorite drug, raise a cup
We can light it up,
We can light it up

I took a shot and missed the mark
Well every single day I multiply
A million drums of kerosene
Baby, like a hotel in the sky
I just want to see all the sparks you're trying to hide
Let's take a trip to wonderland, we can just tune this fire tonight

I, I could light it up for you
I, I could light it up for you
We, we ain't got a shot to loose
Put it on but fade it out
Tell you that you weren't enough
Acting like your favorite drug, raise a cup
We can light it up
We can light it up

    My InterpretationI almost feel like this song is reflective of his personal experiences as a music producer. It's almost a nod to the Kelly Clarkson "Already Gone" fiasco.. especially at the part about the big shot symphony and such.
    He's essentially saying I know what I'm doing and I can make hits better than you can.
