Two weeks of wishing
And I'm finally off the streets
She's got a place for me right in her arms
With a sky, ceiling and me
And all her sad surprises
Only shatter and shake
I break the stairs and shoot the sky
And someone serious says:

It's okay, it's alright
I only came here just to see the bright lights

Two doors down
And she screams at me "get out"
She works a week, lives on Sunday
I can figure it out
All her sad surprises
They just don't do it all
But I can d'd'do that darling

It's okay, it's alright
I only came here just to see the bright lights
I'm okay, I'm alright
All I ever wanted was to see the bright lights

I wouldn't let it bring you down
Because I'm on my way
I wouldn't let it bring you down
It's just the only thrill in town

Two doors down
And she screams at me "get out"
I've seen her before
I left in no doubt
She's got no time for misery
And it only turns to rust
But the whole place could fall down
And I wouldn't give a fuck! No!

It's okay, it's alright
I only came here just to see the bright lights
I'm okay, I'm alright
All I ever wanted was to see the bright lights

It's okay, it's alright
All I ever wanted was to see the bright lights
Yes I did

It's okay, it's alright
I only came here just to see the bright lights
It's okay, it's alright
I only came here just to see the bright lights
I only came here just to see the bright lights
