Neon Blue (Holly Cole)

Strike light through Feeling like a stranger Just passing through Sitting in this downtown hotel room Lookin' at the view The city takes it's toll of you Neon Blue Tombstones of tomorrow The city's cry of gloom Echoes from the towers Like a ghost wind blowin' through an empty room Flashes from the signs on the arcade Ten cents of a dollar It's a sweet parade But nothing lasts forever Neon Blue Streetights on the corner Splash their colours on the night Tape decks blare and kids compare Stories of their flight into everywhere Riding the wires Reaching for the moon Streetights on the corner Splash their colours on the night The men drive by so slowly The deal is always red for gold Midnight in the city Is always Neon Blue The men drive by so slowly The deal is always red for gold Midnight in the city Is always Neon Blue Neon Blue Neon Blue
