This line has used metaphor, where light represents the spotlight of a popular figure, celebrity or politician and shadows could be his/her failings, faults, contradictions and dark side of his past life. The dark side or truth is revealed when one comes into bright light. Simply, if someone is not illuminated with the light, then no one could see their flaws.
