About When the Lights Go Down

"When the Lights Go Down" is a song written by Rivers Rutherford, Jeffrey Steele and Craig Wiseman, and recorded by American country pop singer Faith Hill. It was released to country radio November 19, 2002 as the second single from her fifth studio album, Cry (2002). The second of three songs from the album promoted to country radio, "When the Lights Go Down" peaked at #26 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 2003. At the time, this was Hill's lowest position on the chart since "But I Will" peaked at #35 nearly a decade previously, however subsequent single "You're Still Here" would chart two positions lower later the same year. The song inspired the name of Hill's NBC concert special (taped in September 2002 and aired in November of that year), as well as her live DVD featuring performances from the same, released May 6, 2003. A Europe-exclusive CD single, released in February 2003, also contains a live version of "Stronger" taken from this concert.

When the lights go down
He'll be fillin' a pan with a broom in his hand
In some dive across town
He'll be wiping the bar, moppin' the floor
Countin' his tips, lockin' the doors
Wrestling the devil that tells him to pour another round

When the lights go down
She'll be callin' her friends from her Mercedes Benz
But it's too late now
They were there for the fame, the flash and the thrill
For the drop of the name, the parties, the pills
As another star falls form the Hollywoody Hills without a sound

[Chorus]
When the lights go down and there's nothing left to be
When the lights go down and the truth is all you see
When you feel that hole inside your soul
And wonder what you're made of
Well we all find out
When the lights go down
When the lights go down

At the end of the day when this game that I play
Has gone another round
As I lay there alone on this big empty bed
With nothing but thoughts of you in my head
I think of the things that I wish I had said
When you were still around

When the lights go down and there's nothing left to be
When the lights go down and the truth is all you see
And I wonder if all my life's about the sum
Of all my fear and all my doubts
When the lights go down

[Chorus]
