City lights rising, rising above me.
Moonlight shinin’, it’s all that I can see.
Neither sunset nor sunrise will there ever be.
Oh lord, oh nor sir,
the city’s callin’ to me.

City lights rising, rising around me.
The bridge that I’m crossing, it’s all I can see.
Neither sunset nor sunrise will there ever be.
Oh lord, oh nor sir,
it’s a dark night for me.

Cuz when I left you,
we became two…
I started singin’ this song
and I’m gunna make the best of it;
there will be a new dawn.

City lights shinin’, shinin’ around me.
These streets that I’m walking
are empty as can be.
Neither sunset nor sunrise will there ever be.
Oh lord, oh nor sir,
it’s a road to nowhere for me.

Cuz when I left you,
we became two…
I started singin’ this song
and I’m gunna make the best of it;
there will be a new dawn.

City lights shinin’, shinin’ above me
at one with the music, sound, and revelry.
Neither sunset nor sunrise will there ever be.
Oh lord, oh nor sir,
it’s a road to now here for me. 

Oh lord, oh no siiiiir,
that’s all that I can see.

I wrote the chorus with the help of a friend, Leanne Atherton, who provided the notes for it.
