City Lights Lyrics

A bright array of city lights as far as I can see.
The great white wave shines through the night for lonely guys 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 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.[ fiddle - steel ]The world was dark and God made stars to brighten up the night,
But God who put those stars above, I don't believe made those city 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 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.

Enjoy the lyrics !!!

Noble Ray Price (January 12, 1926 – December 16, 2013) was an American country music singer, songwriter and guitarist. His wide-ranging baritone has often been praised as among the best male voices of country music. Some of his well-known recordings include "Release Me", "Crazy Arms", "Heartaches by the Number", "For the Good Times", "Night Life", and "You're the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me". He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1996 and—even into his late 80s—continued to record and tour.
