"City Lights" as written by David Anthony Willis, Najee Qadir Horne, Harold O'neal and Braden Mitchell Watt....
You're so much older than me
You can remember things I've only read about
In books I never finished, though I've intended to
You're so much smarter than me
I don't hold it against you though
It's unintentional, and I'm not dummy

(chorus)
The city lights
Are shining in on us
I never saw those lights
Where I was growing up
My friends are waiting
In a car outside
So I just stopped in to say goodbye

You're so much kinder than me
You're always quick to make a sacrifice
You'd even make it twice
I probably wouldn't
And you're weaker than me
You fall apart too easily
At a sad song on TV, in a sitcom
(repeat chorus)

And now you're lonelier than me
I was the only thing you had practically
That you wouldn't have to fly to see
And you can't afford it
And you're older than me
You can remember things I've only read about
In books I've never finished, though I've intended to
(repeat chorus)
