Turn up the lights in here, baby
Extra bright, I want y'all to see this
Turn up the lights in here, baby
You know what I need
Want you to see everything
Want you to see all of the lights

from Kanye West (Ft. Alicia Keys, Alvin Fields, Charlie Wilson, Drake, Elly Jackson, Elton John, Fergie, John Legend, Ken Lewis, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Ryan Leslie, The-Dream & The World Famous Tony Williams) – All of the Lights Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

By turning up the lights, Kanye and his celebrity pals want to enlighten us on how their lives really are

As the intro of this album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy says, “you think you’ve peeped the scene/ you haven’t, the real one’s far too mean”

In singing “turn up the lights in here, baby” and “want you to see everything”, the song suggests that the female narrator wants to make love with the lights on, letting the listener see her naked for the first time (at least in this particular relationship).
