I was a ferris wheel
In an empty field
Where nobody goes
Had all the curtains drawn,
Sitting all alone
Feeling like a ghost

I was a broke down heartbreak, badly in need
Of a little of love's electricity

A busted carnival ride,
In the middle of the night,
Then you flipped the switch.
You turned on the show

You light me up
Like the fireworks flying on the 4th of July
Yeah you light me up,
Like the sunshine blazing in the summertime
Oh, every time you light me up
Baby you light me up

You were the missing piece,
To my broken dreams, you're bringing me back to life
You look like a movie star,
Just the way you are, makes me burn inside

Yeah, it's dynamite, finally finding a match
Baby, when you look at me like that

You light me up
Like the fireworks flying on the 4th of July
Yeah you light me up,
Like the sunshine blazing in the summertime
Oh, every time you light me up
Baby you light me up
Oh you light me up

Like New York City, on New Year's Eve
You light me up
All the dark days left when you came to me

Baby you light me up,
Like the fireworks flying on the 4th of July
You light me up
Like the sunshine blazing in the summertime
Oh, every time, you light me
And like the fireworks flying on the 4th of July
Yeah you light me up
Like the sunshine blazing in the summertime.
Baby, every time you light me up
Baby, you light me up.
Oh you light me up
Oh, you light me up
