"Jesus Nitelite" as written by Max Collins, Tony Fagenson and Jon Siebels....
Yeah, yeah
Your eyes shine bright like a Jesus nitelite
I'd like to touch your positive vibes
Indifferent eyes won't give me the time
May I help put aside your moral fiber?

You're dressed in white my face is white
I'd like to be a colorful sight to see
I'm only here in background here on the ground lies my head
I sleep and then I wake make sounds and go to bed and wake again

The time is right but I feel all wrong
It wastes away until it's gone
The time is right but I feel all wrong
It fades away and now you're gone

Yeah my time is right but still I feel all wrong
It wastes away and now you're gone

You're walking by, I'm standing by
Behind the light I'm standing by
By and by

The time is right but I feel all wrong
It wastes away until it's gone
The time is right but I feel all wrong
It fades away and now you're gone

Yeah my time is right but still I feel all wrong
It wastes away until it's gone and now it's gone
And here we go
Yeah yeah yeah, oh oh oh oh
Yeah yeah, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    General CommentThese are all interesting perspectives of this song. This is my favorite song of the album. It just really touches me.

    Here is my perspective of this song. It has kind of been touched on already.

    The song is about a guy who is in love with someone, but he is an outcast and not noticed. He is in the "background" and wishes to be a "colorful sight to see" but unfortunately, he is not. Perhaps he is so infatuated with this girl (or guy) that he puts her on a pedastil as perfect (thus the white). He imagines her being ultimately pure and immaculate. The song is about getting the courage to go talk to her. "I sleep and wake make sounds and go to bed, and wake again." This is perhaps my absolute favorite line of the song. It is about his dull, uneventful, and monotonous life that is revolving about him thinking about talking to this girl. "The time is right, but I feel all wrong." He gets nervous and changes his mind. "It wastes away, and now its gone." He waiting to long and his opportunity passed him by. He's left "standing behind"
