Newsboys - When The Boys Light Up Lyrics




When the boys light up, light up
When the boys light up, light up
When the boys light up, light up

Back and forth like a daytime drama
Up and down like a yo-yo mama
Say there's gonna be days like this
'Cause light and dark don't coexist

How you gonna see through this fog?
How you gonna get back on course?
You ain't never gonna feel the force
If you don't connect to a power source

'Cause you been swapping out day for night
But you see a lamp light burning bright
If you get your flip-flops off the porch
We're passing you the torch

When the boys light up, you know
Who gets the praise who owns the show
When the boys light up, it's on
We ain't stopping till we're done

We ain't nothing but the conduits
He's got the power, He'll flip the switch
Leaving the dark behind
Light up and let it shine

When the boys light up, light up
When the boys light up, light up

I was feeling all overcome
Had a faith gone dim and then some
Gotta call from a band of brothers
Turn the mic on, flash the Nikons

All the doubters, I heard 'em say
Now the band's gonna fade away
But the boys are back for a second act
No excuses, we're lighting fuses

You're in the dawn of your finest hour
So get wired to the highest power
If you're down pick any sight
Get ready to ignite

When the boys light up, you know
Who gets the praise who owns the show
When the boys light up, it's on
We ain't stopping till we're done

If we ain't nothing but the conduits
He's got the power, He'll flip the switch
Leaving the dark behind
Light up and let it shine

When we walk in His footsteps
It's a brighter day
When we follow His word
He lights the way
When we lift up His banner and raise it high
We light up the sky

When the boys light up, light up
When the boys light up, light up

When the boys light up, you know
Who gets the praise who owns the show
When the boys light up, it's on
We ain't stopping 'till we're done

We ain't nothing but the conduits
He's got the power, He'll flip the switch
Leaving the dark behind

When the boys light up, you know
Who gets the praise who owns the show
When the boys light up, it's on
We ain't stopping 'till we're done

We ain't nothing but the conduits
He's got the power, He'll flip the switch
Leaving the dark behind
Light up and let it shine

  1. Jase Carter

    I love it! The voices, the lyrics, the beat - everything! It's quite catchy. And best of all, it's for a good cause - praising God. Well done, Newsboys.

    Joshua Sprinkle

    Sarah Mose hey let’s just all love each other. There are so many better things to argue about that ruining an relationship while commenting on YouTube seems worthless

    tronilicious 627

    Sarah Mose except they scream and sound like dying moose, at least the Christian bands actually sound like people, better lyrics too.

    PurpleAddict2019

    Saul Vasquez Skillet is my most favorite but I do like other bands just as much.

  27. Joshua Quesada

  28. lpf

    This song is awesome

  29. awesomeferret

    This is likely the worst Newsboys song ever. Very unfortunate. You don't have to be a smoker to think of cigarettes or weed every time they sing "when the boys light up". Seriously. What were they thinking? Are they really this oblivious to pop culture and slang? Or were THEY lighting up something? :)

    ExileNation YT

    Thats because you thought of it in the wrong way, what just people don't understand the Bible and think it means something else does it mean the Bible is wrong? No. It means they don't understand it, just like you don't understand the song, even though you are trying to make a point, its pretty pathetic.

    RazorbackMan

    awesomeferret This is such a great song

    Dave Rentoul
