The song was written by band members Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle alongside Nikki Flores and produced by McEwan. The saxophone on Light Years was performed by Thomas Edinger. It has a running time of five minutes and twenty-one seconds and is in the key of C minor.

It is The Midnight's second collaboration with Nikki Flores, following the song Jason from Endless Summer. McEwan considers Light Years to be a “sequel” to Jason.2)

I fell in love with the feeling.
I didn't fall in love with you.
There was a song I was singing
But it wasn't meant for you

And I'm sorry I'm sorry
That I can't stay
I'm sorry
We're light years away

I bite your lip
And you taste like summer time
I can’t forget
The days when you were mine

Do you wander the streets every night
Just to find me too?

Lightyears
Echos
In the streetlights
In between those
Spaces in the moment
Come and find me
Where we let go
Come and find me
Where we let go

I fell in love with a feeling
And your funny faces
That you were beautiful and broken
In all the right places

I'm sorry I'm sorry
That I can't stay
I'm sorry
We're light years away

Millions behind or lightyears ahead
Our time is now- our time was then
And I hear your voice inside of my head but - It’s just a silhouette

Do you wonder what happened
To all of the love we lose?

Lightyears
Echos
In the streetlights
In between those
Spaces in the moment
Come and find me
Where we let go
Come and find me
Where we let go

Lightyears
Do you want your tears back?
Lightyears
They’re gone
I’m sorry
