Back to City Lights lyrics

City Lights (Audio)

It's a long road
And it gets winding
Fog is real low
And it's so blinding
Oh, I'm trying to steer
Trying to take the lead
But I feel like
The road is steering me

Getting so lost
Like a castaway
Feeling so cross
Like a renegade
And I'm trying to call out
In the big city
Just a small voice
And no one's listening to me

Oh
Tell me where to go
Tell me that you know
Just how bright I glow

Every time that you think you've lost your shine
Just remember nothing's brighter
You're the city lights
Every time that you fade into the night
Just remember you're the fire
You're the city lights
That shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, oh, oh

Oh, I'm blending in
And I'm sticking out
Like a sore thumb
That they don't know about
Wanna make peace
Wanna just breathe
Wanna be the light
That makes them all believe

I'm the race car
Not the spectator
I'm the hero
Not the narrator
Hercules battling
Conquering everything, yeah

Oh
Tell me where to go
Tell me that you know
Just how bright I glow

Every time that you think you've lost your shine
Just remember nothing's brighter (oh no)
You're the city lights (you're the city lights)
Every time that you fade into the night
Just remember you're the fire
You're the city lights
That shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, oh, oh

Everybody knows that everybody glows like the city lights
Everybody knows that everybody glows like the city lights
Everybody knows that everybody glows like the city lights
Everybody knows that everybody glows like the city lights

The city lights
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh
The city lights
Whoa, oh

Every time that you think you've lost your shine
Just remember nothing's brighter
You're the city lights (you're the city lights)
Every time that you fade into the night
Just remember you're the fire
You're the city lights
That shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, night, oh
Shine into the night, night, night, oh, oh
