Neon (Redux)

 

Flying down the street
Flying down the street
Flying past the streams of city lights
Of vacant lots
Of blurry lines
A rush of traffic to chase the moon
A glowing trick
Another flash in the dark
Another flash of light
Another movement
Flying through thunder
Through flooded streets
The city washed in blurry neon dreams

The city taking you deeper and darker
Into burning city nights where boys and girls collide
And rainbow people dance the night away
After time
Afterthought
After we both come

Take me somewhere fast
Take me out, out, out
Into burning city nights where boys and girls collide
Where all the people dance
Where shadow people dance
And rainbow people dance the night away
Midnight melodies sung on the street
City movements crafted brick by brick
Dan is laughing
Lisa’s dancing
And everyone in between is blurry and flying

The city taking you deeper and darker
Into burning city nights where boys and girls collide
And rainbow people dance the night away
After time
Afterthought
After we both come

The city calling twilight, twilight
The city taking you deeper and darker
After dark
Afterglow
After me
After you
After time
Afterthought
After we both come down

Every time we come here we forget why we came
Every time we forget we come here again
Every time we come here we forget why we came
Every time we forget we come here again
Every time we come here we forget why we came
Every time we forget we come here again
Every time we come here we forget why we came
Every time we forget we come here again

The city taking you deeper and darker
Into burning city nights where boys and girls collide
And rainbow people dance the night away
After time
Afterthought
After we both come down.
