Lyrical Friday

Everlast has morphed, evolved, changed and twisted throughout the years. Creator of the extremely popular “Jump Around” and then a smooth grainy voice in White Trash Beautiful & Eat at Whitey’s. His latest Love, War & The Ghost of Whitey Ford has grown on me a bit but nothing can beat Eat at Whitey’s for me.

Put Your Lights On is featured on Santana’s (<—-also a big fan) album and helped launch Everlast’s popular singing career.

Put Your Lights On from the 1999 Santana Album Supernatural

Put Your Lights On (Satana featuring Everlast)

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 living deep in my soul
I still got a purpose to serve
So let your light shine, deep into my home
God, don’t let me lose my nerve
Don’t let me lose my nerve

Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now
Wo oh 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

Because there’s a monster living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There’s an angel, with a hand on my head
She say’s I’ve got nothing to fear
She says: La illaha illa Allah
We all shine like stars
She says: La illaha illa Allah
We all shine like stars
Then we fade away

  1. I love the multi-dimensional layering of meaning in these lyrics. The song is beautiful, but the words will stick in my mind throughout the day. I love it when lyrics give me something to think about, rather than just a momentary pleasure. I am so glad you shared this. Everlast deserves all the best, and so do you!

    1. Thank you for coming by Susan! Yes, he is a very layered artist in many ways. I really love this song. I appreciate your lovely words and hope you have a great day.
