Hit the Lights Lyrics

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

    Hit The Lights means that what Selena's life would be if she wasn't a celebrity. in the music video, the beginning started off when she's going around this place that looks like a farm..the corn field..etc..then it lead to a different set when she's partying with everyone kind of like what a teenager would do..("hit the lights, let the music move you, lose yourself tonight,come alive, let the moment take you lose control tonight")its basically about spending time with the people you love just having a good time and not worrying about the problems and things thats going on around you. i love the part "its a mad mad world gonna make an escape, its a perfect world when you go all the way". (:

    Boys are sometimes too scared to tell their crush they like them and then it's too late to say it. The song is saying "life's too short, go ahead and throw yourself into the deep end"

    Sounds like she is saying to people, do whatever you want, and in the end where she says "its a perfect world when you go all the way" sounds like the whole song is a vague reference to sex. "lets hit the lights and have sex" like one of the previous comments even makes a hint at it unknowingly "go out and do it" and not to mention "lose yourself" lose your virginity like i am sure she did to Justin Beiber and then "so lets go go go all the way" seriously it says it over and over, being a fan of Rock n Roll music i can tell when some one is making a reference about sex "Night and Day" sound like a sex freak cuz she did it for the first time. THIS SHOULDN'T BE ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL AND IT IS >.<

    To just give it your all and live life! She had taken a chance, so she let music help her live! From an experience is where you don't tell a guy you like them then you won't get your chance and it sucks. Guys live life!

    It's an interpretation of life. Things may end up going a different way as you planned, some even really awful, but the message is to not give a care. Live like there's no tomorrow.

    It sounds like she is talking about having sex -.- read the lyrics again and think about the double meanings that Adults but not Children will know. If i said "lets go all the way" to a girl she would think it was sex and what else is there to "go all the way" once you "hit the lights" i obviously isn't going all the way to sleep... this song is out on disney and it's disturbing hearing a 5 year old kid singing this song. I like selena but this shouldn't be on disney.

    This song is a message to everyone saying that there's gonna be times when there's something you know you gotta do, but you were too afraid of the opposite outcome to do it. It's saying that take the plunge anyways, and if you'll get more out of life.
