Kill the Lights

Written by Danja, Ms. Lago, Jim Beanz and Luke James

Ladies and gentlemen
We interrupt our programme of dance music
To bring you a special bulletin from the intercontinental radio news
Our very own Pop Princess, now Queen of Pop
Has a very special announcement she would like to make…

You’re on
I think I’m ready for my close up
Yeah

You don’t like me
I don’t like you
It don’t matter
Only difference
You still listen
I don’t have to
In one ear and out the other
I don’t need you
Your words don’t stick
I ain’t perfect
But you ain’t either

If you’re feeling froggy leap
I ain’t even losing sleep
There’s more to me than what you see
You wouldn’t like me
When I’m angry

Mr. Photographer
I think I’m ready for my close-up
Tonight
Make sure you catch me from my good side
Pick one
These other ha just wanna be me
Is that money in your pocket
Or you happy pleased to me?

Kill the lights
Take ‘em out, turn ‘em off, break ‘em down
Kill the lights
Don’t be scared, make a move, see me now
Kill the lights
I feel you watching me, watching you
Kill the lights
You can’t handle the truth, what happened to it?

I killed the lights
Pure satisfaction
I killed the lights
Lights, camera, action
I killed the lights
Pure satisfaction
I killed the lights
Lights, camera, action

All the flashing
Trynna cash in
Hurts my eyes
All the poses
Out of focus
I despise
F me over
Your exposure
Not the best
If that was bad
Watch how I
Release the stress

Mr. Photographer
I think I’m ready for my close-up
Tonight
Make sure you catch me from my good side
Pick one
These other ha just wanna be me
Is that money in your pocket
Or you happy pleased to me?

Kill the lights
Take ‘em out, turn ‘em off, break ‘em down
Kill the lights
Don’t be scared, make a move, see me now
Kill the lights
I feel you watching me, watching you
Kill the lights
You can’t handle the truth, what happened to it?

I killed the lights
Pure satisfaction
I killed the lights
Lights, camera, action
I killed the lights
Pure satisfaction
I killed the lights
Lights, camera, action

You’re a star now
Welcome to the big league
They all want a pic
They all wanna see, see, see
What you’re made of
What you’re gonna do
Is life gonna get the best of you?

Kill the lights
Take ‘em out, turn ‘em off, break ‘em down
Kill the lights
Don’t be scared, make a move, see me now
Kill the lights
I feel you watching me, watching you
Kill the lights
You can’t handle the truth, what happened to it?

I killed the lights
Pure satisfaction
I killed the lights
Lights, camera, action
I killed the lights
Pure satisfaction
I killed the lights
Lights, camera, action

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
