In Neon Lyrics

by Elton John

Lipstick and lashes, the traces of stardom
Lit up on a billboard, so everyone sees them in Neon
Behind the counter she stares out the window
Up at the billboard that's like a reminder in Neon

She hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
Maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in Neon
For two cents of danger she'd trust anybody
She'd smoke like a gun, if it meant she might wind up

In Neon the dreams in the light of a promise that dies
A shimmering city, a glimmer of hope and a lie
In Neon the name's gone, there's no reason why anymore
Trust them and wind up alone behind a locked door, in Neon, in Neon

Pictures and patterns, the touches of glamor
Cut into a fashion that flashes above them in Neon
A hot cup of coffee held in her fingers
A perfect complexion that lingers above her in Neon

She hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
Maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in Neon
For a shot at the title, she'd slip into something
She'd smolder like ashes, if it meant she might wind up

In Neon the dreams in the light of a promise that dies
A shimmering city, a glimmer of hope and a lie
In Neon the name's gone, there's no reason why anymore
Trust them and wind up alone behind a locked door, in Neon

In Neon the dreams in the light of a promise that dies
A shimmering city, a glimmer of hope and a lie, in Neon
