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.

    Hit the lights is my favorite song! ;) it's basically saying there are going to be times when yoru thinking about something you should have done, would have done (telling that special boy you like him, or catching that train you should have gone on). But it's also saying dont worry about any of that; live in the moment and enjoy life, with your family and friends;)
