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 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
