Original video
Well, he lit you up like Amber Waves in his movie show
He fixed you up real good till I don't know you any more
From ballet class to a lap dance straight to video
And the pool side news was that he would be launching you

Into every young man's bedroom, you gave it up
On DVD and magazine, you gave it up
A private rite of passage, you gave it up
To every boy's sweet dream with their paper cuts

You said, "He's got a healing machine
It glows in the dark, glows in the dark."
You say, "There's not a lot of me
Left any more, just leave it alone.
But if you're by and you have the time
Tell the Northern Lights to keep shining.
Lately it seems like they're drowning."

He could light you up and summon every swan to the lakeside
Off to Cabo San Lucas for some optical stimulus
Then you started to guess there was someone else though his flint glass
Seeing all of you immersed in his sepia

Into every young man's bedroom, you gave it up
On DVD and magazine, you gave it up
A private rite of passage, you gave it up
To every boy's sweet dream with their paper cuts

You said, "He's got a healing machine
It glows in the dark, glows in the dark."
You say, "There's not a lot of me
Left any more, just leave it alone.
But if you're by and you have the time
Tell the Northern Lights to keep shining.
Lately it seems like they're drowning."

So I went by 'cause I had the time
And told the Northern Lights to keep shining
They told me to tell you they're waving
