Verse 1

It's a long road, and it gets winding
Fog is real low, and it's so blinding
Oh I'm trying to steer, Trying to take the lead
But I feel like the road is steering me
Getting so lost, Like a castaway
Feeling so crossed, Like a renagade
And I'm trying to call out, In this big city
Just a small voice, And no one's listening to me

Hook

Oh, Tell me where to go
Tell me that you know, Just how bright I go

Chorus

Everytime that you think you've lost your shine
Just remember nothing's brighter
You're the city lights
Everytime that you fade into the night
Just remember you're the fire
You're the city lights

That shine into the night night night night night oh (x4)

Verse 2

Oh I'm blending in, and I'm sticking out
Like a sore thumb, they don't know about
Wanna make peace, Wanna just breathe
Wanna be the light, That makes them all believe
I'm the race car, not the spectator
I'm the hero, not the narrator
Hercules battling, conquering everything

Hook

Oh, Tell me where to go
Tell me that you know, Just how bright I go

Chorus

Everytime that you think you've lost your shine
Just remember nothing's brighter
You're the city lights
Everytime that you fade into the night
Just remember you're the fire
You're the city lights

That shine into the night night night night night oh (x4)

Verse 3

Everybody knows, that everybody glows like the city lights (x4)

The city lights, Ohhhhhh The city lghts, Ohhhhhhh

Chorus

Everytime that you think you've lost your shine
Just remember nothing's brighter
You're the city lights
Everytime that you fade into the night
Just remember you're the fire
You're the city lights

That shine into the night night night night night oh (x4)
