Letra

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 sherry wine"

Lights that offer other girls for empty hearts like mine

They paint a pretty picture of a world that's gay and bright

But it's just a mask for loneliness behind those city lights


The world was dark, and God made stars to brighten up the night

But God who put the stars above I don't believe made those lights


For it's just a place for men to cry when things don't turn out right

Just a place to run away 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
