Hailing from the sleepy lands and lakes of Minnesota, Bright Light Parade is here with a caffeine kick and a sugar-rock buzz that's sure to provide a well needed wake up call. Mixing power pop with girl power is a sure fire combination that will grab the attention of this generation.

Biography

"A powerful message of purity, servant-hood and seeking the will of God in the everyday life of relationships, struggles, and blessings." These are just a few words to describe the empowered "girl rock" of Bright Light Parade. Lyrical forays into the depths of teen life through a Christian perspective are the anthem of sisters Lex and Torre Anderson. Their latest effort, titled The Heart Ballet, accurately describes the dance of emotion, both spiritual, and relational, through the perspective of one pursuing growth in following Christ.

Bright Light Parade has played countless shows throughout the United States and Mexico. In 2009, they will be launching a series of tours in promotion of The Heart Ballet. Endorsed by Daisy Rock guitars and jointly allied with both World Vision and World View Warriors, this group has made its way accentuated by their family bond and the support of a devoted fan base.

Keep Bright Light Parade in your sites and be sure to pickup a copy of The Heart Ballet. Stay Tuned as their self described "sugar-rock buzz with a caffeine kick" comes to a venue near you.

Alive Magazine August 2008 -

"Honest lyrics [telling] a much deeper message of the struggle to live counter-culturally in a society that tells young people what to believe and how to live."

Lyrics

Starlight City

Written By: Lex Anderson

Something’s not right, out there in the skyline
Why is everything coming down? (coming down)
Wishing on a star won’t get you very far now
And there’s no reason to go there

It seems the night’s on fire
And there’s no time for wishing anymore

Starlight City is burning down
Small time dreamers are not allowed
It seems our time is running out
Cuz Starlight City is burning down, burning down

Holding too tight and fighting for the spotlight
Seems to be the issues now at hand
No one lets go, and love is a no-show
How much longer can this go on?

It seems the night’s on fire
And there’s no time for wishing anymore

Starlight City is burning down
Small time dreamers are not allowed
It seems our time is running out
Cuz Starlight City is burning down,

It’s burning down,
We’re getting out getting out of this now, we’re getting out
(We’ll run away from here, and never look back
We’ll run away from here and forget the past)

Starlight City is burning down
Small time dreamers are not allowed

Starlight City is burning down
Small time dreamers are not allowed
It seems our time is running out
Cuz Starlight City is burning down

Starlight City is burning down
Small time dreamers are not allowed
It seems our time is running out
Cuz Starlight City is burning down

Keep Me Under

Written By: Lex Anderson

Crashing waves are pushing me so far under,
There is no escaping now (I’m suffocating)
I fight the currents as I swim against the people,
In a sea of disbelief (of disbelief)

Woah, Woah, Someone come save me
Woah, Woah, I’m sinking faster than ever, you’re dragging me down
But, you can’t keep me under

I’m gasping for my breath as,
I’m scratching for the surface
One more chance to break through
If you take my hand we’ll make it through the darkness
I’m not afraid when I’m with you

Woah, Woah, Someone come and save me
Woah, Woah, I’m sinking faster than ever, you’re dragging me down
But, you can’t keep me under

You can’t keep me under, woah

I’m reaching out, I’m reaching out for truth
Please take my hand God, I can’t live without you.

I’m reaching out, I’m reaching out for truth

I raise my voice with my hands to the sky, I’m crying out please

Someone come save me
Woah, Woah, I’m sinking faster than ever, you’re dragging me down
Faster than ever you’re dragging me down
Faster than ever you’re dragging me down

But, you can’t keep me under

Beautiful Nothing

Written By: Lex Anderson

Shut the door to you,
Looking back at everything, we’re through
I’ve been searching and now I’m learning it was never you

You weren’t worth my tears, you weren’t worth my time

Goodbye to you, my beautiful nothing
I’ll wait for you my beautiful something

Verse2
I thought I was so complete, but without you
My heart, it still beats
I’ve been searching and now I’m learning it was never you
I’ll just wait and see,
If he’s been waiting just like me
He’s been searching and now he’s learning he was made for me

Bridge
You said you’d always love me, I know now it’s not true
You weren’t worth my tears, you weren’t worth my time

Goodbye to you, my beautiful nothing
I’ll wait for you my beautiful something

You said you’d always love me, I know now it’s not true

Goodbye to you, my beautiful nothing
I’ll wait for you my beautiful something

Goodbye to you, my beautiful nothing
I’ll wait for you my beautiful something

My beautiful something
