    (Bill Anderson)

    The 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 cabaretes and honky tonks
    There 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 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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    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 athmosphere
    Lights that lure are nothing but
    A masquarade 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...
