    "City Lights" Lyrics

    Dottie West

    (Bill Anderson)

    A bright array of city lights
    As far as I can see
    The great white way shines through the night
    For lonely girls like me.

    The cabaretes and honky tonks
    Their flashing signs invite
    A broken heart to lose itself
    In the glow of city lights.

    Lights that say forget his name
    In a glass of cherry wine
    Lights that offer other guys
    With empty hearts like mine.

    They paint a pretty picture
    Of a world so gay and bright
    But I can't say I love you dear
    To a street of city lights.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Lights that say forget his love
    In a different athmosphere
    Lights that lure are nothing but
    A masquarade for tears.

    Yes, 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...
