City Lights

by Iain Wear

The stars sparkle down

On a cold winter's night

I look over the river

With you by my side

This isn't the first time

I've stared at this view

But it looks so much sweeter

Now I'm sharing it with you.

The lights of the city

Reflect in your eyes

I want to capture this moment

To last for all time

There's a million people

Somewhere out there asleep

But as long as we stand here

My world is just you and me

And if I forgot to tell you

You look wonderful tonight

Just you and I alone

With the city lights

And I'll never beat the feeling

That I had with you tonight

Just you and I alone

With the city lights

The breeze from the river

Gently ruffles your hair

But it feels so much colder

When you are not there

Somewhere in the distance

There's a clarion call

But the sound of your voice is

The sweetest of all

The lights of the city

Seem to go on for miles

I could stay here forever

Simply lost in your smile

The glow of the moonlight

It highlights your face

There's no-one else but us

In time or in space

And if I forgot to tell you

It was wonderful tonight

Just you and I alone

With the city lights

And I'll never beat the feeling

That I had with you tonight

Just you and I alone

With the city lights

The nicest place in this city

Is here in your arms

While elsewhere it's freezing

I feel nothing but warmth

As the cold of the night air

Can't match the heat in of your kiss

There's no better feeling

Than a moment like this

The glow of the moonlight

Embraces your smile

I want to capture this moment

To enjoy for a while

But as the lights of the city

Fade away with the dawn

There's an infinite sadness

In knowing you're gone

And if I forgot to tell you

You looked beautiful tonight

Just you and I alone

With the city lights

And I'll never beat the feeling

That I had with you tonight

Just you and I alone

With the city lights

Just you and I alone

With the city lights
