Thank you Steven Watchorn for a great song! Original Song >>


A single soul in the evening

Having pulled myself through the day

See so many others just like me

Nowhere to go, but going anyway

They carve out a place from the darkness

But the hole in their heart’s there to stay

‘Neath the city lights

I’d think it’d be hard to feel lonely

With so many places to be

And each pinpoint its own invitation

Shining for everyone to see

Behind every point is a story

And a part may be waiting for me

‘Neath the city lights

‘Neath the city lights

Spent all summer

Growing closer to shades and illusions

And distracted

By the flickering ghosts I’ve been watching so long

And how

Could I ever hope to survive

Thinking I’m fine

Just marking time

And barely alive?

So this is the path that I’ve chosen

With its risk and its dangers unknown

Going out toward those points in the distance

Looking behind them on my own

And every clean, well-lighted place

May be where what I hope for’s overthrown

But it’s better than being alone

In the city lights

In the city lights

I can’t tell you

Where I’ll be but maybe I’ll find you

As we cast our better selves

Into the night
