Lights On Lyrics
And I'm not trying to come off too strong
But you know that I can't help it
Cause girl you're beautiful
And I can't deny I want your body
But I'm a gentleman so I'll be
The one who takes it...

I think at some points he is referring to sex but I also think that he’s not using it in a dirty way but in a good way. Some songs you here today are about dirty sex, but in this song he is expressing how much he loves this girl and that he wants to treat her like a lady and not a toy, if that makes any sense

Lights on is a way to refer to a girl that he really loves and wants to treat her like something important and special he trying to express how he feels about the girl and just wants to have her all night but treat her better then other people and in his lyrics he refers to "but I'm a gentleman so I will be the one who takes it slowly"he means by he is trying to be gentle with her

Lights On by Shawn Mendes, very clear lyrics. The latest comment, explained their thoughts about this song.
PS- you are still young to think about the lyrics and listen to this song. Wait when you are old enough to experience this.

This song is about him saying as beautiful and gorgeous the girl is, he wants to love her for who she really is and genuinely love her for her personality not just for her looks because that's not the kind of person that he's trying to come across as. As a result ,he loves her so much that he wants to express his love to her in a unique way that people don't tend to express them selves in." I wanna love you with the lights on" as opposed to loving her with the lights off like most people tend to do but this girl is so special that he feels that she needs to be treated specially as well. PS-I'm 13 just so you know

I think this song means that Shawn wants a girl for who she is and not to use her as a sex toy because she's a beautiful girl not a toy.

I believe it is about Shawn saying he will love a girl for her personality and not for her body. But when it says, "darling I want to see every inch of you I get lost in the way you move." I think the most likely means that if they get to a certain point that they will eventually love each other under the sheets.

I think the song is about how Shawn loves someone for who they are and not just their body. He wants them to know he dosent just love them for the sex but for who they are. he loves them with lights, and clothes on but also with them off he says that he will be the one to take it slowly saying that he will wait until they are ready.

This is song is a lil bit about sex not to much but a lil bit when he says ‘darlin’ i wanna see every inch of you’ but for the rest it’s just about how much of a beauty the girl has and he loves her body but he is also saying that he’s a gentleman and that he wants to love her with the lights on to see her beauty off clothes and with clothes

I think Shawn is trying to say to that special someone that he cares about her and loves her for who she is and how that she is beautiful to him. I also think that Shawn is trying to say he will love her all day and all night long.
