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 light

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 its 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 tight
And I just can't say I love you
To a street of city lights
