(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...
This song is from the album "The Sound of Country Music [Camden]" and "A Legend in My Time/The Sound of Country Music [Co".
