"Lights" as written by and Marvin Paul Ambrosius Marsha Ambrosius....
I heard the knock on my door
I heard the ring of the bell
I got the letter but I couldn't go
So many thoughts in my head
So many places to be
So many faces that I long to see
Standing in front of me tonight
The lights will take me where I long to be
Just like a thousand nights before
Somebody said to me
Why do you do this to you
Why sit back and relax
Go to the islands and forget it all

Slow down, you're moving too fast
You seem afraid it won't last
Take my advice, go straight and settle down
Thank you for caring, but tonight the lights will take me where I long to be
Just like a thousand nights before
I can't explain, it gives me something

Give me the lights, precious lights
Give me lights
Give me my hope, give me my energy
You can turn the wrong into right
Precious lights
Illuminate me, carry me away
Carry me, carry me

    General CommentEh, no. Not a song about reefer. Merely about the joys of performing onstage under the lights. Sheesh.
