Written in the lyrics booklet as:
This song is a roundelay, with the phrase being repeated continually. As the song progresses, this becomes a mantra.
The lyric plays off a common theme of sun-loving seen in many of Phosphorescent’s songs. The idea of being light, itself a mystical one, matches the song’s hypnotic rhythm to create a quasi-religious song.
It can also be read as being “light” as in being unburdened. While many of Houck’s lyrics deal with “heavy” themes (break-ups, usually), this is a statement of opposition, a way to speak words into truth. This may be related to being drunk, as Houck speaks often about spending time in bars.
