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 cabarets and honky tonks Their flashing signs invite. The broken heart can lose itself In the glow of city lights. Lights that say forget him now In a glass of sherry wine. Lights that offer other girls For empty hearts like mine. They paint a pretty picture Of a world that's gay and bright, And it's just a mask for loneliness Behind those city lights. (turn around) The world was dark God made the stars To brighten up the night But the God who put those stars above I don't believe He made those lights. It's just a place for me 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 But my arms can't hold 'em tight, And I just can't say that I love you To a street of city lights. No, I just can't say that I love you To a street of city lights.
