Lyrics

Neon Lights

Written By: Patrick McCallion

Two slice of pizza,
Bottle of coke,
The sound of traffic,
The smell of smoke.
The feel of the city as it wraps around our minds,
As we wander through the streets just to
see what we can find.

Even the man on the corner
with his cardboard sign and pen.
His lifes been fucked with so many times,
The city is his only friend,
and as we walk to the street,
we got no words to say.
The Neon Lights just hold us,
and all the world just seems okay.

And we look to the heavens,
but we see no stars,
Coz there all blinded out,
by the lights from the cars,
And as God looks down on this city of light,
Well he's oh so proud of this New York night,
And it's 4 in the morning, but it feels like 10
And we're walking home through Neon Lights again.

Sound of the music,
The little clubs,
Street seller peddling various goods,
And the tourists all flocking,
and not trying to fit in,
With their I-Heart-NY hats and their
bags filled to the brim.

But then we take some time away,
From the lights and the streets,
And head on down to Bryant Park,
and settle in and take a seat.
And feel your hand in my hand,
as we look up to the sky,
And see the Empire State,
still bathed in Neon Light

And we look to the heavens,
but we see no stars,
Coz there all blinded out,
by the lights from the cars,
And as God looks down on this city of light,
Well he's oh so proud of this New York night,
And it's 4 in the morning, but it feels like 10
And we're walking home through Neon Lights again.

And it's four in the morning,
but it feels like ten and we're
walking home through
Neon Lights again.
