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-ee The cabarets 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 sherry wine Lights that offer other girls For empty hearts like mi-ine 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 For 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 atmosphere Lights that lure are nothing But a masquerade for tears They paint a pretty picture Of a world that`s gay and bright But I just can say I love you To a street of city lights
