The Lights of the City


( 2000 Walter Farmer)
Get MP3 File

It's hard to say what makes a person
Take off like the wind
Could be one too many nights
With a bottle my only friend
What ever is the reason
Well my time here is all through
And the lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view
Lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view

I appreciate the ride here sir
Man I'm feelin' fine
Feel my mind begin to unwind
With each mile marker sign
There's a reason for this big ol' smile
Troubles I've had a few
And the lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view
Lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view

Tossed into the streets
With nothin' to my name
Fired from my job and crashed my car
And the day it was the same
Well that's all far behind me now
There's nothin' left to do
And the lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view
Lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view

And I think I know what makes a person
Take off like the wind
Seems sometimes the best advice
Is try to start again
As the miles fly on by me now
Well that's all that's left to do
And the lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view
Lights of the city
Won't fade fast enough from view
