About Turn Off The Light

"Turn Off the Light" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado, taken from her debut studio album, Whoa, Nelly! (2000). Written by Furtado, and produced by Gerald Eaton, Brian West, and Furtado, the song was released as the album's second single on August 14, 2001, reaching number one in New Zealand, Portugal, and Romania, as well reaching the top 10 in many countries around the world. Furtado, who cited the song "Turn the Lights On" by the Canadian band Big Sugar as the inspiration for "Turn Off the Light", has described it as "a real song . .. Though I may seem so independent and stuff, blah, blah, blah, when I turn out the light at night I can get lonely just like everybody else. Maybe that's why it's such a good song and everyone is responding to it – because it's real. Just a song with a fun, hooky chorus."

It's getting so lonely inside this bed
Don't know if I should lick my wounds or say "woe is me" instead
And there's an aching inside my head
It's telling me you're better off alone
But after midnight morning will come
And the day will see if you will get some

They say that girl ya know she act too tough, tough, tough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
They say that girl you know she act so rough, rough, rough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down down
'Til you see all my dreams
Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems

I looked above the other day
'Cause I think I'm good and ready for a change
I live my life by the moon (by the moon)
If it's high, play it low, if it's harvest go slow and if it's full, then go
But after midnight morning will come
And the day will see if you're gonna get some

They say that girl ya know she act too tough, tough, tough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
They say that girl you know she act so rough, rough, rough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
And I say follow me follow me follow me down, down, down, down
'Til you see all my dreams
Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems

And I'm searching for things that I just cannot see
Why don't you don't you don't you come and be with me
I pretend to be cool with me, want to believe
That I can do it on my own without my heart on my sleeve
I'm running, I'm running, catch up with me life
Or is it love that I'm looking to find
It's all in me, can't you see, why can't you, why can't you see
It's all in me, yeah

All in me, yeah
Where is your logic? (turn of the light, turn off the light)
Who do you need? Yeah (turn of the light, turn off the light)
(And I say follow me, follow me, follow me)
(Down, down, down, down, 'til you see all my dreams) where can you turn?
Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems
Follow me, follow me, down, down, down
I do not need, I do not need nobody (turn off the light, turn off the light)
Follow me down, follow me down, down, down
I do not need, I do not need nobody (turn off the light, turn off the light)
Follow me, follow me, follow me, down, down, down, down
'Til you see all my dreams, see all my dreams
Follow me, follow me, follow me, down, down, down, down
'Til you see all my dreams, see all my dreams
Where is your logic? (turn off the light, turn off the light)
Who do you need? Yeah (turn off the light, turn off the light)
Where can you turn? (turn off the light, turn off the light)
And where is your logic? (turn off the light, turn off the light)
Who do you need?
