It's the boy you never told I like you,
It's the girl you let get away.
It's the one you saw that day on the train,
But you freaked out and walked away

It's the plane you wanna catch to Vegas,
Things you swear you'll do before you die,
It's the city of love that waits for you,
But you're too damn scared to fly.

(Chorus)
Hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight,
Come alive, let the moment take you, lose control tonight.
Hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight,
Come alive, let the moment take you, lose control tonight.

It's the time that you totally screwed up,
Still you're trying to get it out your brain.
It's the fight you had when you didn't make up,
It's the past that you're dying to change.

It's all the money that you're saving,
While the good life passes by.
It's all the dreams that never came true,
Cause you're too damn scared to try.

(Chorus)
Hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight,
Come alive, let the moment take you, lose control tonight.
Hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight,
Come alive, let the moment take you, lose control tonight.

It's a mad, mad world, gotta make an escape,
It's a perfect world, when you go all the way.
Hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight.

So let's go, go, go, go all the way.
Yeah let's go, go, go, go night and day.
From the floor, to the rafters, people raise your glasses,
We could dance forever!

(Chorus)
Hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight,
Come alive, let the moment take you, lose control tonight.
It's a mad, mad world, gotta make an escape.
It's a perfect world, when you go all the way.
Hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight.

    This song is basically an encouraging song which asks you to just chill and enjoy your life. Don't be afraid to do or say something which expresses how you feel or who you are. Don't be scared to do something which you know will bring about a positive change in your life. Just be yourself an don't be afraid to tell the world who you are! Life is like photography, you need the negatives to develop so stop acting like someone you aren't and start being who you are and be confident about it. Love you selena!

    I think it means that you shouldn't be afraid to try things that might be difficult, and I think the courus means that music is a wonderful thing and it really gets you moving. Whether it's classical and doing ballet or hip hop and your spinning on your butt. You should get involved. Wanting to be a singer, playing an instrument. Music is one of the most importent things we have on earth so lets use it.

    I think that the song is about expressing yourself, I think it is about showing who you really are. Its also about when you mess up once there's always another chance never give up. Every time you freak out or your scared its like your trapped in a bubble but, you burst that bubble and the dreams that never came true can come true because your not scared anymore. Selena gomez inspires me so much, she is an exceptional singer and her songs and their meanings really inspires me. Thank you!

    Well first I think selena can get a better man. (just some advice.) I love this song, but the reason I like her albums is she has sweet lyrics no cursing and saying damn. Example: taylor swift is incredibly talented and she doesn't have kinda bad words. Selena if you read this don't think you have 2 use any bad word like lots of bands be that pretty and sweet teen you are. That's what every1 luvs.
