"City Lights" as written by David Anthony Willis, Najee Qadir Horne, Harold O'neal and Braden Mitchell Watt....
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
