Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You shine like a star
You know who you are
You're everything beautiful
She's hot, hot like the sun
The loneliest one
Still everything beautiful
Well I'll be god damned
You're standing at my door
We stayed up in the city
Until the stars lost the war
So Friday night, holy ghost
Take me to your level
Show me the one I need the most
I need the most
Verse 2
I wish I knew you when I was young
We could've got so high
Now we're here it's been so long
Two strangers in the bright lights
Oh I hope you don't mind
We can share my mood yeah
Two strangers in the bright lights
I wish I knew you
I wish I knew you
Oh I wish I knew you when I was young
Verse 3
Truth, it's all that you need
You bury that seed
It's everything beautiful
And that sound comes from the underground
It's all inside you now
It's everything beautiful
But what you, what you, what you, what you running from?
And they got, they got, they got, they got you on the run?
So Friday night
Holy ghost
Take me to your level
Show me the one I need the most
I need the most
Verse 4
I wish I knew you when I was young
We could've got so high
Now we're here it's been so long
Two strangers in the bright lights
Oh and I hope you don't mind
We can share my mood, yeah
Two strangers in the bright lights
I wish I knew you
I wish I knew you
Oh I wish I knew you when I was young
Verse 5
Maybe we can share my mood
Hmm hmm hmm
Maybe we can share my mood
Hmm hmm hmm
Maybe we can share my mood
Hmm hmm hmm
Verse 6
I wish I knew you when I was young
We could've got so high
Now we're here it's been so long
Two strangers in the bright lights
Oh and I hope you don't mind
We can share my mood, yeah
Two strangers in the bright lights
I wish I knew you
I wish I knew you
Oh I wish I knew you when I was young

This song means everything to me.
I remember listening to this with my best girlfriend and I told her how amazing it would be to experience a night like this song.
IT HAPPENED. One of the most unforgettable nights of my life.
I met someone through facebook and we decided to meet eachother that night. A Friday night right before the night of a new moon.
We sat high on top of rocks off trail together. We were strangers but somehow knew eachother.
And then we understood that by some incredible force of the universe, we were connected once before.
We looked at the ground way below us, we peered outward into the distance together, and we shared vulnerable moments with one another.
Still on the rock, he held me. And we looked into eachother's eyes. I was hesitant at first- but we kissed. It was so transitory under the moonlight.
I dropped him off at his house, drove the opposite direction to think a bit, and I asked the Universe for a sign through the radio, thinking about this person I just met.
THIS SONG CAME ON!!
It started with the words.."Friday night, holy ghost, take me to your level show me the one I need the most.."
I called him once I heard that because I was literally freaking out at how perfect the song fit. It WAS a Friday Night! WE were under the MOON! We were strangers!!!
He was pretty amazed at that.
Ever since then, I fall in love all over again when I hear this song. And I know he hums it every once in a while.
I had this night, with someone I barely knew, and this song was here to tell me who I need. And it was beautiful.
