(Turn the lights on)

from Beyoncé – Sweet Dreams Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is said throughout the song, which is odd because it seems to contradict with the meaning of the song. If someone is sleeping in a dark room and you turn the lights on, they usually will wake up. However the song is about not wanting to wake up from a dream because it is so beautiful. Unless she’s actually saying turn the lights “off”. What do you think?
