Lyrics:

They say you can't see the stars from outer space
You best be on the ground.
Just like the little shadows dancing on your face
Playing lost and found.

I know you needed some electricity
To keep hanging on.
Lighting flashed on that sleeping hill
And just switched it all on.

Just switched it on.

Damn those city lights that called to you
Damn those searching eyes, they did it too
Damn those city lights, they got to you
You loved those city lights.

You know they say the dust settles for everyone
Just got to hang around.
You climbed up that hill shameless as the sun
And just stood your ground.

I know you needed cool simplicity,
A grip on the day.
But the thundering drum in your racing heart
Swept you away.

Swept you away.

Damn those city lights that called to you
Damn those searching eyes, they did it too
Damn those city lights, they got to you
You loved those city lights.

Damn those city lights that called to you
Damn those searching eyes, they did it too
Damn those city lights, they got to you
You loved those city lights.
