Santana feat Everlast - Put your lights on

Such an unexpected beautiful song and not just cos of the amazingly talented Santana!

listen to the last bit. He's telling people to open up to God, put your lights on, cos there is a monster, the devil, living under your bed, whispering in your ear. But you have nothing to fear if you have

La illaha illa Allah

That line gets me evry time!

Lyrics -

Hey now, all you sinners
Put your lights on, put your lights on
Hey now, all you lovers
Put your lights on, put your lights on

Hey now, all you killers
Put your lights on, put your lights on
Hey now, all you children
Leave your lights on, you better leave your lights on

Cause there's a monster living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There's an angel, with a hand on my head
She say I've got nothing to fear

There's a darkness living deep in my soul
I still got a purpose to serve
So let your light shine, deep into my home
God, don't let me lose my nerve
Lose my nerve

Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now
Wo oh hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now

Hey now, all you sinners
Put your lights on, put your lights on
Hey now, all you children
Leave your lights on, you better leave your lights on

Because there's a monster living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There's an angel, with a hand on my head
She say's I've got nothing to fear
La illaha illa Allah
We all shine like stars
La illaha illa Allah
We all shine like stars
Then we fade away

    everlast is awesome, he's a muslim too I think. Although I'm not so sure about the music video - club, drinking, dancing and at the end come with the islamic creed?

    You check out white trash beautiful and black jesus, both by Everlast. Powerful.
