City Lights

He wore the colors of his country on a scarf around his head
He'd beg for money all day long, and when the evening skies turned red
He'd slowly walk on down the street towards an alley he called home
Lay his head down on a box, and he'd start to sing this song

City Lights, Shine on me tonight
Cause I know in my heart there is a better way
Living In a land where things glisten for all the world to see
You're the only lights that shine on me

He wakes up every morning at the local hardware store
The diner gives him coffee, he never asks for more
And when the sun sets, he thanks The Lord, he's made it one more day
Late at night if you listen hard, you can hear him say

City Lights, Shine on me tonight
Cause I know in my heart there is a better way
Living In a land where things glisten for all the world to see
You're the only lights that shine on me

City Lights (shine on me tonight, I know there's a better way)
City Lights (shine on me tonight)
Shine on me too

City Lights, (shine on me tonight)
City Lights (I know there's a better way)
City Lights
