In Neon Lyrics By Elton John

    lipstick and lashes the traces of stardom
    lit up on a billboard so everyone sees them in neon
    behind the counter she stares out the window
    up at the billboard that’s like a reminder in neon

    she hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
    maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in neon
    for two cents of danger she’d trust anybody
    she’d smoke like a gun if it meant she might wind up

    in neon the dreams in the light of a promise that dies
    a shimmering city a glimmer of hope and a lie
    in neon the name’s gone there’s no reason why anymore
    trust them and wind up alone behind a locked door

    in neonx

    pictures and patterns the touches of glamour
    cut into a fashion that flashes above them in neon
    a hot cup of coffee held in her fingers
    a perfect complexion that lingers above her in neon
