As the daughter of missionary parents, Welsh mother, Virginia Poxleitner and Canadian father of German and Austrian descent, Eric Poxleitner, she spent her childhood in many parts of the world, including the Philippines, Jamaica, Ontario, and British Columbia.She moved to Toronto at the age of 18 when she legally changed her name to Lights.Both Owl City and Lights are currently wrapping up their respective headlining tours.Owl City's fall tour has sold out in every city, and Adam Young's single 'Fireflies' has been burning up the charts.The population of its Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was 464,036, while the even larger Combined Statistical Area (CSA) population, which includes Shiawassee County, was 534,684.It was named the new state capital of Michigan in 1847, ten years after Michigan became a state.I opened my eyes last night And saw you in the low light Walking down by the bay On the shore, Staring up at the stars, that aren't there anymore I was feeling the night grow old And you were looking so cold So like an introvert I drew my over shirt Around my arms and began, to shiver violently before You happened to look And see the tunnels all around me Running into the dark Underground All the subways around, create a great sound To my motion fatigue Farewell With your ear to a seashell You can hear the waves in underwater caves As if you actually were inside a saltwater room Time together isn't never quite enough When you and I are alone, I've never felt so at home What will it take to make or break this hint of love?Only time, only time Can you believe that the crew has gone And wouldn't let me sign on?
(Yeah all the time) all the time Time together isn't never quite enough When you and I are alone, I've never felt so at home What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
She got the nickname "Lights" from her last name Poxleitner.
As there was already a signed band named "Lights", having her name officially changed was a way to use it in spite of prior copyright.
Lights was awarded the 2009 Juno Award for New Artist of the Year.
Lights was born Valerie Anne Poxleitner in Timmins, Ontario.
