Luke Bryan, ‘Light It Up’ [Listen]

Capitol Nashville

Luke Bryan‘s new single “Light It Up” has him begging an ex to “light up” his cell phone. The singer captures the neurosis of heartbreak.

Bryan remains very progressive with a single that can be compared to “Strip It Down.” Heavy drum loops dominate the early verse before more organic instruments enter during a soaring chorus. Aside from the new topic, there’s little that separates this song from his tried-and-true recent hits.

Old Dominion‘s Brad Tursi helped Bryan write “Light It Up,” a dark reference to a very modern habit the lost ex-lover takes on. It used to be that you’d find an excuse to drive by her house or show up at her work. Now it’s waiting for the buzz of a cell phone in your jean pocket. The sad hope for a message that is never coming is timeless, no matter the device. “Light It Up” is familiar, whether you want to admit it or not.

Did You Know?: With “Light It Up,” Bryan is looking to extend a streak of 10 straight No. 1 hits.

Luke Bryan’s “Light It Up” Lyrics:

I open my eyes, reach for the phone / Not a word from you baby / It don’t leave my sight since we had that fight / Can’t remember but maybe / I blew you up / In the middle of the night again / You were drinking with your friends / You ignored it but you got it.

Chorus:
I get so neurotic about it baby / ‘Cause I know you’re reading your phone / I can’t help from going crazy / Thinking you might not be all alone / I wake up, I check it / I shower and I check it / I feel the buzz in my truck / And I almost wreck it / I always got it on me / Just in case you want me / So, if you’re looking for my love / Then light it up.

Every time I unlock my screen / I hope I see one of them red lipstick ‘I miss you’ pictures / I’m on your clock, you’re in control / You want me now baby go figure / My worlds at the tips of your fingers.

I go to sleep, I check it / In the middle of the night, I check it / I feel the buzz in my bed / And I don’t get no rest / I always got it on me / Just in case you want me / So, if you’re looking for my love / Then light it up.

It’s True, the New Luke Bryan Album Is Coming This Year!
