in neon lyrics – 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 neon, in neon

pictures and patterns, the touches of glamor
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

she hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in neon
for a shot at the t*tle, she’d slip into something
she’d smolder like ashes, 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 neon

in neon the dreams in the light of a promise that dies
a shimmering city, a glimmer of hope and a lie, in neon
