City Lights

by Kenny Fame

/

about

Fame's style here is soul resembling 1950s Rock and roll / rythym and blues. A throwback to '50s- rockabilly style a la Elvis Presley or Buddy Holly.

"City Lights is a 50’s style rock n roll song with a swinging beat and a real feel good vibe. There is also a country element to the guitar lines that weave in and out throughout, and played in the way you’d hear on early Elvis records. The vocal melody is very catchy and makes for a very enjoyable listen." - Alex Faulkner (Failkner Review)

lyrics

Driving all night. City lights all night, all night, all night.
If it makes you feel right there's no need to fight;
all night, all night, all night.

I knew it when I saw you that you had what it takes
to leave me on the dance floor and make my heartache.
You're always on the lookout for your innocent prey.
Those hopeless young romantics just keep coming your way.

Driving all night. City lights all night, all night, all night.
If it makes you feel right there's no need to fight;
alright, all night, alright.

All night its alright (ooh, ooh, ah...)
All night its alright (ooh, ooh, ah...)
A mover, a shaker, a farmer, a banker.
(ooh, ooh, ah...)
A teacher, a speaker, a nurse or a freak or...
(ooh, ooh, ah...)

I'm sure you'll get your kicks
its just a matter time;
cause Friday night all alone is really a crime.
With every note your inhibitions come and they go.
Before the night is over you'll lose 'em I know.
I'm standing from the sideline watching alone;
but you have yet to notice 'cause your ego's full blown.
There's always been a part of me that's wanted a chance;
but Donna Summer's playing and I'm sure it's "Last Dance".

Driving all night. City lights all night, all night, all night.
If it makes you feel right there's no need to fight;
alright, all night, alright


All night its alright (ooh, ooh, ah...)
All night its alright (ooh, ooh, ah...)
A mover, a shaker, a farmer, a banker.
(ooh, ooh, ah...)
A teacher, a speaker, a nurse or a freak or...
(ooh, ooh, ah...) (Repeat to fadeout).
