Jamie Lynn Spears Wrote Emotional Song 'When the Lights Go Out' for Her Daughter Maddie

The touching song was penned by the 25-year-old actress on the first night she was away from her 8-year-old daughter, who is currently being treated in hospital after an ATV accident.

AceShowbiz - Jamie Lynn Spears' song "When the Lights Go Out" resurfaces after her daughter Maddie was rushed to the hospital on Sunday, February 5. The emotional song was penned by Jamie on the first night she was away from her daughter.

Jamie performed the song at the Grand Ole Opry last March. She can be heard singing, "Somebody had to leave/ I just hate it had to be me/ When the lights go out and I struggle with the silence/ Hunted by the crying til morning comes around/ But I know someday on the other side of crying."

"Whenever I wrote 'When the Lights Go Out', it was coming from a place... it was the first night, of course, that Maddie was away from me," she explained in her TLC documentary "Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out". "She was with her dad for the first time, and I was by myself."

"In that moment, I called Daddy [Jamie Spears]. I was just by myself, and I was just like, I want to be able to let people into that side of me because that's the story. That's why I'm doing it," she added, "As you can tell, the music moves me, of course, but it comes from moments like that."

Maddie is currently being treated in hospital after she was injured in an ATV accident. She was trapped underwater for two minutes as Jamie and her husband tried to rescue her. On Tuesday, February 7, a spokesperson for the Spears family confirmed in a statement that the 8-year-old Maddie regained her consciousness.

"With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, Feb. 7," the statement read. "Doctors were able to remove the ventilator today and she is awake and talking. Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident."
