Furtado, Nelly - Turn Off The Light Lyrics

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

I looked above the other day
Cuz I think I'm good and ready for a change
I live my life 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


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
Where is the 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


Where is your logic
Who do you need
Where can you turn in your delicate time of need
Follow me down, follow me down down down,
I do not need I do not need nobody
Where is your logic
Who do you need
Where can you turn in your delicate time of need

    Gloria Crusade


  14. Javiera Barría

    I watched this at 11 and thought it was trashy because I was trashy (I actually liked Nelly but I was jealous of her look, so I had low self-esteem)
    Now I'm 15 and I think this video is funny :-)

  24. Dagi Omega

    This song, “Who Let the Dogs Out” and “Oops I Did it Again” were the first songs I was culturally aware of and enjoyed and I was born in 96’. I miss the Y2K era of (1998-2003) and I’m sure everyone 22-32 can agree as it was a major part of our childhood.

    HQ KS

    Yass 1999-2009 ❤️❤️❤️

  25. Hairon Mohamed

    Siglo 21 / 17/01/veinte veinte

  26. Elias Rodriguez

    Ok so I aint gonna say it was me listening to this in MTV because I was like 12, but my older brothers definetly did and therefore I was part of it. I am so glad i grew up with it. " i wish there was a way to know when we were in the good old days" i feel that

    Gloria Crusade

    I'm glad I grew up on this too. Nelly inspired me to become a singer. I don't think there are many modern artists who would have the same effect on me

  27. Luis Alejandro Hernández Maya

    Vari vari vari vari down down down.

  28. Daljeet Singh

    Gloria Crusade

    It's up there for sure

  91. Malcolm Watt

    Who would believe that this is an echo from 1970?

    Gloria Crusade

    I think its more like 2014 than 1970... It was ahead of its time

    Malcolm Watt

    @Gloria Crusade Actually I was referring to the fact that I overheard discussion of Nelly Furtado in 1970 which might have been before she was born. For me then it is an echo from 1970.
