Artist/Band: Runrig
Lyrics for Song: City of Lights
Lyrics for Album: Searchlight [1988]



I arrived in the city of lights

Enchanted ballrooms where I lost my life

I've closed my eyes

On your fairground smile



Seedy heroes and silver tills

Sinking suns on a sea of thrills

I place my bets

Trading with strangers in silhouette



There's a sadness

There's a joy

There's a place

There's a song that will never die

Forever



I drink your health, son of the earth

Passing ships in the modern death

We're all still fired

Old emotions still burn inside



On solid ground, round the mother tongue

A tower of hope, a joyful sound

You take your time

A hand of aces in a pack of lies



There's a sadness

There's a joy

There's a place

There's a song that will never die

Another night in this town

Holds me close, holds me there

The searchlight

Forever



I found my song and I started to sing

Took me away on an olden wing

So far from home

Standing so lonely but not alone



In this empire of ache and rhyme

Lovers and best friends are running blind

I grasp your hand

Is this the only world I understand?



There's a sadness

There's a joy

There's a place

There's a song that will never die

Another night in this town

Holds me close, holds me there

The searchlight
