When the sun goes down on my side o' town,
that lonesome feelin' comes to my door,
and the whole world turns blue.
There's a run-down bar across the railroad track.
I got a table for two, way in the back, were I sit alone
and think of losin' you.
I spend most every night beneath the light of a neon moon.
Oh if you lose your one and only,
there's always room here for the lonely
to watch your broken dreams dance in and out of the beams
of a neon moon.
I think of two young lovers runnin' wild and free.
I close my eyes and sometimes see
you in the shadows of this smoke filled room.
No tellin' how many tears I've sat here and cried,
or how many lies that I've lied,
tellin' my poor heart 'She'll come back some day.'
Oh, but I'll be alright, as long as there's light from a neon moon.
The jukebox plays on, drink by drink,
and the words of every sad song seem to say what I think
and this hurt inside o' me ain't never gonna end.
Oh, but I'll be alright as long as there's light from a neon moon.
(Repeat Chorus twice)
