  • Dropped the call, drop my phone
    All alone I'm with you
    Had enough, sobered up
    Nothing left to cling to

    Funny how the stars always seem to shine
    Shine the brightest right before they fall
    Funny how your touch used to burn me up
    Now I'm not feeling anything at all

    I never noticed how hot it is under these lights
    This neon love is burning too bright
    Baby, sometimes it's hard enough just getting by
    This neon love is making us blind
    Funny how the lows overshine the highs
    If we fade at least we know we tried
    Should have known from start of it, baby don't cry
    This neon love is destined to die

    Salty lips, drunken kiss
    Used to think I need this
    Had the moon, but wanted you
    It'll all be done soon

    Funny how the stars always seem to shine
    Shine the brightest right before they fall
    Funny how your touch used to burn me up
    Now I'm not feeling anything at all

    I never noticed how hot it is under these lights
    This neon love is burning too bright
    Baby, sometimes it's hard enough just getting by
    This neon love is making us blind
    Funny how the lows overshine the highs
    If we fade at least we know we tried
    Should have known from start of it, baby don't cry
    This neon love is destined to die

    What's the use, tell the truth
    I'll be fine without you

    I never noticed how hot it is under these lights
    This neon love is burning too bright
    Baby, sometimes it's hard enough just getting by
    This neon love is making us blind
    Funny how the lows overshine the highs
    If we fade at least we know we tried
    Should have known from start of it, baby don't cry
    This neon love is destined to die Writer/s: AMY HEIDEMANN, MARTIN JOHNSON, NICK NOONAN
