Light It Up
Rev Theory Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hey I want a taste, you're a black heart devil
And I can't explain why you wait for your face
You're a hotel lover on the back and to the disgrace
Every night she seems to change her name
Does it matter who you really are?
Back room where we sip champagne
I can never seem to get out enough
I ignite so hold on, 'cuz we're about to light it up
It's on tonight so hold on, 'cuz we're about to about to light it up

Hey there's no mistake 'cuz I'm a hard time sinner
With a bullet to waste
I will break all these chains
And hit the club house running with the money to play
I got the whiskey running through my veins
Tip me over and corer the valve
Yo daddy tells you not to play my game
But what I'm sell baby, she can't deny

I ignite so hold on 'cuz we're about to light it up
It's on tonight so hold on 'cuz we're about to about
I ignite so hold on 'cuz we're about to light it up
It's on tonight so hold on 'cuz we're about to about to light it up

It keeps calling my name
I can't send it away
You got to pay it to play yeahhh
Yo daddy tells you not to play my game
But what I'm sell baby she can't deny
I ignite so hold on
It's on tonight so hold on 'cuz we're about to

I ignite so hold on cuz we're about to light it up




It's on tonight so hold on 'cuz we're about to light it up yeah
Hold on 'cuz we're about to about to light it up

[Lyrics]

Hey, I want a taste
You're a black heart devil and I can't explain
Why I wait for your face
You're a hotel lover on the back end deal of this race
Every night she seems to change her name
Doesn't matter who you really are
The back room where we sip champagne
I can never seem to get enough

I ignite
So hold on
Cause we're about to light it up
It's on tonight
So hold on
Cause we're about to... about to light it up

Hey
There's no mistake
Cause I'm a hard time sinner
With a bullet to waste
And I'll break... these chains
And hit the clubhouse running with the money to play
I got the whiskey running through my veins
So cut me open, add the fuel to the fire
Your daddy tells you not to play my game

But what I'm sellin' baby she can't deny
I ignite
So hold on
Cause we're about to light it up
It's on tonight
So hold on
Cause we're about to...
I ignite
So hold on

Cause we're about to light it up
It keeps calling my name
I can't turn it away
We gotta pay to play

Yeahhhhhhh

Your daddy tells you not to play my game
But what I'm sellin', baby, she can't deny
I ignite
So hold on
Cause we're about to light it up
It's on tonight
So hold on
Cause we're about to...
I ignite
So hold on
Cause we're about to light it up
It's on tonight
So hold on
Cause we're about to light it up
Yeah, so hold on
Cause we're about to light it up
So hold on
Cause we're about to...
About to light it up
