Bill Anderson – City Lights Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The 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
[Chorus]
(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
[Verse 2]
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?
[Chorus]
(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 them tight
And I just can’t say I love you to a street of city lightsl
