  • When the sun goes down on my side of town
    That lonesome feeling comes to my door
    And the whole world turns blue
    There's a rundown bar 'cross the railroad tracks
    I got a table for two way in the back
    Where I sit alone and think of losing you

    I spend most every night
    Beneath the light
    Of a neon moon

    Now if you lose your one and only
    There's always room here for the lonely
    To watch your broken dreams
    Dance in and out of the beams
    Of a neon moon

    I think of two young lovers running wild and free
    I close my eyes and sometimes see
    You in the shadows of this smoke-filled room
    No telling how many tears I've sat here and cried
    Or how many lies that I've lied
    Telling my poor heart she'll come back someday

    Oh, but I'll be alright
    As long as there's light
    From a neon moon

    Oh, if you lose your one and only
    There's always room here for the lonely
    To watch your broken dreams
    Dance in and out of the beams
    Of a neon moon

    The jukebox plays on, drink by drink
    And the words of every sad song seem to say what I think
    And its hurt inside of me, ain't never gonna end

    Oh, but I'll be alright
    As long as there's light
    From a neon moon

    Oh, if you lose your one and only
    There's always room here for the lonely
    To watch your broken dreams
    Dance in and out of the beams
    Of a neon moon

    To watch your broken dreams
    Dance in and out of the beams
    Of a neon moon
    Oh, watch your broken dreams
    Dance in and out of the beams
    Of a neon moon Writer/s: Ronnie Dunn
