About Put Your Lights On

"Put Your Lights On" is a single performed by Santana and Everlast on Santana's album, Supernatural (1999). It charted on the US pop chart, reaching #18 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, but did considerably better on rock radio, peaking at #8 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. "Put Your Lights On" won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards. Everlast wrote the song while recovering from a major heart attack that he had suffered in February 1998 (directly after he completed recording his first solo album, Whitey Ford Sings the Blues). He has referred to it as "one of the most personal songs I ever wrote", stating that the song was "kind of all about hope, but it's coming from a really dark place you know, so... and really questioning a lot of your beliefs, and affirming, you know, stuff in your soul."Everlast converted to Islam in 1996, and the end of the song contains the words "La ilaha illa Allah", ("There is no God but God" in Arabic), the first part of the Shahada, the Islamic profession of faith.

Hey now
All you sinners
Put your lights on
Put your lights on
Hey now
All you lovers
Put your lights on
Put your lights on

Hey now
All you killers
Put your lights on
Put your lights on
Hey now
All you children
Leave your lights on
You better leave your lights on

'Cause there's a monster
Living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There's an angel
With a hand on my head
She say I've got nothing to fear

There's a darkness
Livin' deep in my soul
I still got a purpose to serve
So let your light shine
Deep into my hole
God, don't let me lose my nerve
Don't let me lose my nerve

Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now
Whoa-oh hey now
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now

Hey now
All you sinners
Put your lights on
Put your lights on
Hey now
All you children
Leave your lights on
You better leave your lights on

'Cause there's a monster
Living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
And there's an angel
With a hand on my head
She say I've got nothing to fear
She say
La ilaha illallah
We all shine like stars
La ilaha illallah
We all shine like stars
And then we fade away

Santana

Santana is a rock band based around guitarist Carlos Santana and founded in the late 1960s. It first came to public attention after they performed the song "Soul Sacrifice" at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, when their Latin rock provided a contrast to other acts on the bill. This initial exposure made their first, eponymous album a hit at the time, followed in the next two years by successful follow-ups Abraxas and Santana III. more »
