When the lights go on again all over the world
And the boys are home again all over the world
And rain or snow is all that may fall from the skies above
A kiss won't mean "goodbye" but "Hello to love"
When the lights go on again all over the world
And the ships will sail again all over the world
Then we'll have time for things like wedding rings and free hearts will sing
When the lights go on again all over the world
..................
When the lights go on again all over the world
And the ships will sail again all over the world
Then we'll have time for things like wedding rings and free hearts will sing
When the lights go on again all over the world

    May i just point out that vera lynn is a singer from ww2 not ww1 , also she is singing about the blackout being lifted from england ( and the world ) if you read the third line she is saying that there are no more bombs dropping and that the only thing you will see is rain and snow

    It's a lovely song but all of vera lynn songs are good .

    It's talking about world war i (1914-1918). When it's over, they won't need to keep their light off at night, and all their sons and husbands will come back from the war. It won't be bombs falling from the sky, but only rain and snow. Ships will be free to sail without going in a protected convoy for fear of enemy submarines.
