And if I thought…

And if I thought the sunset view
was a lovely sight
Just imagine my reaction
when I saw it later at night

Newcastle lights reflected
in the waters of the Tyne
With the bridges in bright colour
looking wonderfully fine

Enough, I have to tell you
despite the chillness in the air
for me to stand and gawp a while
at the wonder of it there

The Music

Back lit through the dry-ice swirl
the player comes to fore
his nimble fingers on the frets
the crowd cries out for more

The singer steps up to the mic
narration in the song
the scene is set, the story told
the crowd sings loud along

The rhythm pounds, the bass is felt
the lights pulsate and shine
the ambience is magical
the crowd claps there in time

The music as it should be heard
and lived and felt and seen
our heroes up there on the stage
the crowd lives every dream

Lights across the city

Bright lights across the city
and me fifteen floors high
I have a perfect vista
‘Neath a dark and starless sky

High above the lane of Bear
In Leeds, West Yorkshire way
Where I’ve travelled to from Southern lands
to work just for a day

It’s so quiet and peaceful
up here, yet very bright
A hundred thousand streetlamps
of a city lit at night

Midnight lights

If truth be told
At past midnight
Newcastle is
an awesome sight

The bridges there
On River Tyne
Magnificent in
this silent time

Bright lights with
no-one to see
Quite spectacular
just for me

So I’ll record them
with this frame
and in this verse
will give them name
