Under these city lights
arms hanging to our sides
watching the satellites as they fall

Under these city lights
obeying our appetites
a garden of earthly delights
under these city lights

Nursing our hidden wounds
it’s difficult to concede
That when hearts refuse to heal
Sometimes they just need to bleed

We laugh at each other’s jokes
inhaling each other’s breath
until we begin to choke with regret

But something just isn’t right
under these city lights
but we smile because we’re polite
under these city lights

These buildings and busy streets
are bathed in synthetic glow
but the brighter a city’s lights
the darker it’s shadows

Under these city lights (Under these city lights)
indulging our appetites (Under these city lights)
a garden of earthly delights (Under these city lights)
Under these City Lights (Under these city lights)
