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 means that there are all these things in life that you didn't to and now you regret it. So basically it's saying and telling you that don't think about the future, just do what you feels right because you won't get another chance to do it.

    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!
