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
A broken heart to lose itself in the glow of city lights

Lights that say, forget her name in a glass of cherry wine
Lights that offer other girls for empty arms like mine
They paint a pretty picture of a world that's gay and bright
But it's just a mask of loneliness, behind those city lights

The world was dark and God made stars to brighten up the night
Did the God who put those stars above make those city lights?
Did He make a place for men to cry when things don't turn out right?
Are we just supposed to run 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 them tight
And I just can't say I love you to a street of city lights
