"The Light" as written by Stacey Gray, Aaron Malcolmson, Tim Morrison and Shaun Gionis....
You turn off the light,
And the dark sucks on the embers of the fire.
My heart smolders in the night,
And these tumbling boulders of desire

Come rolling out the shadows at me,
Rolling out the shadows at me,
Rolling out the shadows at me.

You say, "I thought time was meant to take away the hurting?"
As your lonely silhouette closes the curtain.
We're back on the road, destination uncertain,
So let's get in this car and drive.

And this feeling I feel is so strong,
So powerful, it can't be wrong;
And now the whole frosted night is just a song,

A song for you,
A song for you,
A song for you.

Now the moon is splashed right over the street
Like my tears on your thighs so pale.
It's just you and me and the sheets,
And the whole, the whole wide world is just a jail,

When you're away from me,
You're away from me,
You're away from me.

And it's rollin' on by,
Here come the night.

You turn out the light
And the dark sucks on the embers of the fire;
My heart smolders in the night
And these tumbling boulders of desire

Come rolling,
Come rolling,
Rolling, rolling,
Rolling, rolling,
Rolling, rolling,
Rolling, rolling,
Rolling, rolling,
Rolling, rolling out the shadows at me

You turn out the light.

    My InterpretationHis lover has ended the relationship (You turn out the light) and he is dealing with the inital pain (boulders of desire.) He wants them to get back together (let's get in this car and drive....come rollin' out of the shadows at me.) The main emotion is the pain of their break up and his desire for them to get back together.
