"Neon Moon" as written by and Ronnie Dunn....
When the sun goes down on my side of town
That lonesome feeling comes to my door
And the whole world turns blue
There's a rundown bar 'cross the railroad tracks
I got a table for two way in the back
Where I sit alone and think of losing you

I spend most every night
Beneath the light
Of a neon moon

Now if you lose your one and only
There's always room here for the lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

I think of two young lovers running wild and free
I close my eyes and sometimes see
You in the shadows of this smoke-filled room
No telling how many tears I've sat here and cried
Or how many lies that I've lied
Telling my poor heart she'll come back someday

Oh, but I'll be alright
As long as there's light
From a neon moon

Oh, if you lose your one and only
There's always room here for the lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

The jukebox plays on, drink by drink
And the words of every sad song seem to say what I think
And its hurt inside of me, ain't never gonna end

Oh, but I'll be alright
As long as there's light
From a neon moon

Oh, if you lose your one and only
There's always room here for the lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon
Oh, watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

    General Commenthonestly not a big fan of (many) country songs, but THIS song is by far one of the greatest (country/pop) songs ever written. It reminds me of when I was a kid and me and my wife were just going out. Man, breakups are hard. We eventually got married, but being out without your woman missing her is the most difficult thing a man can try to pretend not to be doing. And somehow, to me anyway, the moon brings a sort of lonesome comfort when you're hurtin'. Beautiful lyrics. I know, sounds gay but hey, I'm a musician. I feel this shit.

    General Commenti think "neon moon" reffers to a sign in the bar maybe... cause he says he's in a bar...

    General CommentIf the neon moon is a bar sign, your broken dreams may be represented by cigarette smoke in the air. Which would drift between the blubs of the sign.

    General CommentA song about a guy feeling down in the dumps in a bar. The neon light being the neon lights in the bars I'm guessing. You know, beer signs, etc.
