Jerry Lee Lewis - City Lights Lyrics

Jerry Lee Lewis Lyrics

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 arms like mine

They paint a pretty picture of a world that's gay and bright

But it's just a mask of loneliness behind those city lights

The world was dark and God made stars to brighten up the night

Did the God who put those stars above make those city lights

Did he make a place for men to cry when things don't turn out right

Are we just supposed to run 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 but my arms can't hold them tight

And I just can't say I love you to a street of city lights
