Hey guys. In my recording of City Lights the guitar was too loud and you couldn't hear my lyrics. I figured I would send the out in case anyone was interested in seeing what they were. If you would like to give feedback it's always appreciated but please don't feel obligated! See everyone next week!


“City Lights”

By: Alex Forger


Intro


City lights wave goodbye

A thousand lives that never knew my name

But my heart is troubled all the same


Verse 1


Looking back on city landscape serene

Gas in the tank, the night’s picking up speed

I just can’t tear my eyes away

From those shining possibilities that beckon me to stay


Chorus


Cause those city lights, city lights, yeah they burn so bright

I was led astray, lost my way, in your blinding light

Yeah those city lights, city lights, now they fade away

But they leave me dreaming for another day


Verse 2


With my heart in my head, I wore my mind on my sleeve

If passion blinds you then you can’t find your dream

I laughed when they said life had rules

Now I’m wondering if I’m the fool


Chorus

Cause those city lights, city lights, yeah they burn so bright

I was led astray, lost my way, in your blinding light

Yeah those city lights, city lights, now they fade away

But they leave me dreaming for another day


Bridge


But if you squirm to fit the mold

One day you’ll find your spirit bought and sold

You’ve got to fight to stay alive

So feed the fire burning in your eyes


Chorus


And those city lights, city lights, yeah they burn so bright

I was led astray, lost my way, in your blinding light

Yeah those city lights, city lights, now they fade away

But they leave me dreaming for another day.


Outro


So city lights, you’re gone today

My soul is aching and I long to stay

But I promise, I’ll be back one day
