Carpenters – Honolulu City Lights lyrics

Lookin' out upon the city lights

And the stars above the ocean

Got my ticket for the midnight plane

And it's not easy to leave again



Took my clothes and put them in the bag

Try not to think just yet of leavin'

Lookin' out into the city night

And it's not easy to leave again



(*) Each time Honolulu city lights

Stir up memories in me

Each night Honolulu city lights

Bring me back again



You are my island sunset

You are my island dream



Put on my shoes and light a cigarette

Wonderin' which of my friends will be here

Standin' with their leis around my neck

It's not easy to leave again



Repeat (*)
