City Lights Lyrics

A bright array of city lights as far as I can see.
The great white way shines through the night for lonely guys like me.
The cabaretes and honky tonks their flashing signs invite,
A broken heart to lose itself in the glow of city lights.

Lights that say forget her name in a glass of cherry wine.
Lights that offer other girls for empty hearts like mine.
They paint a pretty picture of a world that's gay and bright,
But it's just a mask for loneliness behind those city lights.

The world was dark and God made stars to brighten up the night,
But I don't believe that God above, made those city lights,
Or it's just a place for men to cry when things don't turn out right,
Just a place to run away and hide behind those city lights.

Lights that say forget her love in a different athmosphere,
Lights that lure are nothing but a masquarade for tears,
They paint a pretty picture of a world that's gay and bright,
But I just can't say I love you to a street of city lights.
