She has always turned the lights on for me
But she turns them on for so many others too
Yes my arms lose her each night at sundown
Cause my baby turns the lights on uptown.

I keep fighting for a love that I can't win
Cause she'd rather have her nightlife and her friends
By the time I get home she's not around
Cause my baby turns the lights on uptown.

I don't know why I love her but I do
Cause now the lights she turns on for me are blue
I wonder what my baby has found
When she goes to turn the lights on uptown.

Now the parties never start until she's there
I know I'm a fool but I don't care
She doesn't care how it looks or how it sounds
Cause she's got to turn the lights on uptown.

I don't know why I love her but I do
Cause now the lights she turns on for me are blue
I wonder what my baby has found
When she goes to turn the lights on uptown...
