City Lights

Album: Sundown Heaven Town (2014)
  • She was like a brand new song on an old guitar
    Supernova in a Mason's jar,
    Every boy in town wanted to show her around
    And as the dirt road Finch cuts the king
    Beating along this American dream
    Right out out the trunk when she showed up
    She had a fire sat in her faraway eyes
    And I knew just where to take her that night

    We got high on top of that bridge
    We could see for miles, past the corn and the cotton, and the River bridge
    When the sun went down, there she was
    Shinning like a big old sky full of diamond dust,
    I'm a cigarette burnin' slow on a summer night
    She's city lights

    She's like a broken heart you can't wait to have,
    The shooting star that falls to fast
    Try holding on, it's already gone
    I searched that radio low and high
    Tryina find a song that make a memory by
    And I did alright, for a small town guy
    But even in my old town I knew
    I'd never shine this bright as her city lights do

    We got high on top of that bridge
    We could see for miles, past the corn and the cotton, and the River bridge
    When the sun went down, there she was
    Shinning like a big old sky full of diamond dust
    I'm a cigarette burnin' slow on a summer night
    She's city lights

    We got high on top of that bridge
    We could see for miles, past the corn and the cotton, and the River bridge
    When the sun went down, there she was
    Shinning like a big old sky full of diamond dust
    I'm a cigarette burnin' slow on a summer night
    She's city lights
    She's city lights

    She is my city lights, city lights
    She is my city lights, city lights
    She is my city lights, city lights
    She is my city lights, city lights Writer/s: DERIC RUTTAN, JONATHAN SINGLETON
