My Boots is a single released by Lights on October 13, 2010. It was originally supposed to be included in her second studio album, Siberia, but was later cut from the final track listing.

Her sister, Jess Kotanen, said of the track: "Lights was writing in northern Ontario last winter and looking out the window, she realized how much she missed winter (you don't really get it in Toronto). She had to drop everything and frolic outside with a dog and she got so excited about that experience that she walked back inside and wrote a song about it."

Lyrics Edit

You might know if you're from around here

what goes on for half of the year.

Have you seen the queen of the castle

paint this city from ear to fear?

If the air was meant to be glitter,

it might not take all yours away;

when she swings she's a heavy hitter,

when she comes you'll ask her to stay.

Winter left a cover

that I'm gonna end up under,

but I've got my boots.

When I'm in the summer

I forget how much I love her,

when she's in the groove.

Oh, it's a love/hate romance,

'cause I could watch her dance,

if I've got my boots.

Something in the way she comes gliding

makes me need to fix up the hair;

she gets me to come out of hiding

and find something decent to wear.

Stop and stare.

Winter left a cover

that I'm gonna end up under,

but I've got my boots.

When I'm in the summer

I forget how much I love her,

when she's in the groove.

Oh, it's a love/hate romance,

'cause I could watch her dance,

if I've got my boots.

A love/hate romance.

When I see her dance.

I got on my boots,

got my boots on.

A love/hate romance.

I can't feel my hands.

I got on my boots,

got my boots on.

Winter left a cover,

that I'm gonna end up under,

but I've got my boots.

When I'm in the summer,

I forget how much I love her,

when she's in the groove.

Winter left a cover

that I'm gonna end up under,

but I've got my boots.

When I'm in the summer

I forget how much I love her,

when she's in the groove.

Oh, it's a love/hate romance,

'cause I could watch her dance,

if I've got my boots.
