Bright lights, Big city

Song Info

The lights go up, the guards are lifted

Souls are seen, values have drifted

Angels on show, devils they just hide

Everyone knows who or what is inside

Face the darkness, give away the light

Enjoy what is wrong, face what’s right


Bright lights, big city

Darkened nights, sometimes it ain’t pretty

Bright lights, big city

Looking for hope inspire only pity

The lights go up, the days get older

Raising the stakes, it’s harder to hold ‘em

Nightmares and dreams, a slow-dance on the floor

Some days we know what attracts us more

Forget the nightmares, face the dreams

Live for now don’t come apart at the seams
