Pretty City Lights

words and music by Paige Powell      ©2007 Paige E. Powell

1. That cloud over there is beginning to glow

We are the richest people you know

We have the time to watch the skies

We have the hours to fill our eyes

2. Every night the orange sun descends

And you can taste the salt-flavored winds

The clock will tell you to open your eyes

And beg you, please, to see the sunrise

Chorus:  But those people living on top of the hill

No, they never even look at the pretty city lights

Those people living on top of the hill

No, they never even look at the pretty city lights

Those people, those people

They never even look at the pretty city lights

Those pretty city lights

3. When you can hold the hand of the earth

And really know what time is worth

You’ll know that the best things are free

And lift your eyes more frequently (Chorus)

4. Someday you’ll see that the gift is for us all

And you don’t need the money at all

The wealthiest man will never see

The riches of deep tranquility

And he’s one of...   (chorus)
