“neon heart, day glow eyes”

neon heart day glow eyes
a city lit by fireflies
they’re advertising in the skies
for people like us

and i miss you when you’re not around
i’m getting ready to leave the ground

oh, you look so beautiful tonight
in the city of blinding lights

don’t look before you laugh
look ugly in a photograph
flash bulbs purple irises
the camera can’t see

i’ve seen you walk unafraid
i’ve seen you in the clothes you made
can you see the beauty inside of me?
— U2, city of blinding lights
