Bareilles, Sara - Bright Lights And Cityscapes Lyrics




Hold my breath and I'll count to ten
I'm the paper and you're the pen
You fill me in and you are permanent
And you'll leave me to dry
I'm the writer and she's the muse
And the one that you always choose
She will falter and gift her blame
And it starts all over again
Again again again

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she'll take all you ever have
But I'm gonna love you
You say maybe it'll last this time
But I'm gonna love you
You never have to ask
I'm gonna love you
'Til you start looking back
I'm gonna love you
So right
I wouldn't need a second chance

Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
Tell me why it'll be good again
All those demons are closing in
And I don't want you to burn
Nevermind what I said before
I don't want any less anymore
You are carbon and I am flame
I will rise and you will
Remain

For bright lights and cityscapes
And landslides and masquerades
And she'll take all you ever have
But I'm gonna love you
You say, "Maybe it'll last this time"
But I'm gonna love you
You never have to ask
I'm gonna love you
'Til you start looking back
I wouldn't need a second chance
I wouldn't need a second chance
I wouldn't need a second chance
I wouldn't need a second chance

  1. ryller

    Pls, help me to understand this song. Because English is not my
    first language, and... This is for me like when someone loves another one, but the feeling isn't perfectly requited, because there is somebody else in the picture.


    "And she'll take all you ever have
    But I'm gonna love you"


    And she wants to tell that she's not like the other, who treated her loved one in the wrong way,... she wouldn't need a second chance, becuse she'll do it right in the first place, she won't leave her loved one.


    Is this right?

    Madison Starling

    yeah, great job!

    ryller

  5. Aurora Gemini

    "But I'm gonna love you;
    You never have to ask.
    I'm gonna love you,
    'Til you start looking back.
    I'm gonna love you
    So right,
    I wouldn't need a second chance."


    Not to be dramatic or anything, but this totally hit me like a truck.

  6. Kia Lawhorn

    The first song i'd ever heard from Sara was Gravity & i've been hooked on her since that song - it got me through a FUCK up break up back then , I appreciate at an angle's voice

  7. Thought Blessed

    Amazing speech less

  8. Aurora Gemini

    This is so perfect I don't have the words

  9. Khael lopez

    Who still listens and cries to this in 2019

  10. HuangXJ

    Before I had my first relationship, this was my anthem.. and promised that I’ll always love deeply without needing a second chance. Fast forward to 4 years, and I completely forgot about this song and the promise I made myself. I broke my promise and am now needing a second chance from the guy I truly love the most.

  11. S. Gomez

    Sara has been the words inside me I could not find and I love her music for helping me find pieces of myself with each musical line thank you for sharing your gift w us

  12. Jerika Ordoño

    I want this song to play in my wedding <3


    Sara, you've been such an inspiration to me and to others for many years. I always find myself going back to your songs and looking forward to your new ones. Thank you for your music!

  13. Charles Davis

    Cheers Love......

    O Gosh, haven't heard this song in years, for one reason only. It just fits everything surrounding my life. I instantly just cried hearing this song. It means everything to me. Wanting to keep a relationship, wanting to love me more than said failed relationship...it means everything and I will continue to listen to this without being afraid of how it will make me feel. Thank you Sara.

  34. Angie Gray

    Stunning. I adore her singing.

  35. decusq

    This song reminded me of the first time I ever said "I love you" to someone who is still dear to me. He rejected me because were too far apart and felt that it was unrealistic that we would ever be together. As time goes on in some ways I fear he maybe right but it still never means that feeling will go away. It exists as possibilities and dreams, something that is carved into your heart for as long as you live. Were still friends but apart of me still wishes he wouldn't keep sending me presents of friendship. I'd just want him, and only him. No matter how much I try to stop feeling it won't stop, my heart will always yearn for him, no matter who is in my life and whoever i may end up with. I'll always be the love sick fool for him but know that it may never happen. But one can hope right?

  36. Dandanz3112

    I listened to this song in class when I felt moderately insecure and emotional... bad decision 😂😂

    i imagine a lovely mother singing this song to her daughter🌼❤

  45. sofia corales

    Sara is one of the few singers that can break my heart and amaze me at the same time. I just wish that she can come to Puerto Rico and have a concert.

  46. Doddy Pemberley

    So touching! She really is underrated.

  47. Gideon Land

    Now look up Alexz Johnson - 2AM.
    Fascinating they have the same tune, and same imagery in the lyrics.
    Thank me later.

  48. EDN

    I've been listening to this for three years and it's still one of my favourites.

    Must be an emotional black hole she delved into writing this song. The entire 6 minutes are flooded with emotion.

    Zoe Banuelos cavalcades instead of care for gates

    Jamaris AllDay

    One of my favorite songwriters. When I first heard her get to the part where she sings, “I wouldn’t need a second chance”, I died of chills.

  51. ruthie

    Even after 4 years, this song is still one of the most beautiful songs i have ever listened to, the emotion she puts into it... i have no words

  52. The Internet

    I know this is not at all what this song is about. but this is how I see it because I'm a sick little peice of work: the whole song is about one person, a girl/woman with an addiction or mental illness. She's addressing everyone who loves her; Who she let's in slightly, but mostly hides her pain from. until she can't take it n pulls away from so she can go back to self sabotaging. It's a cycle she only knows one way to stop; by end her life. N she says she wouldn't need a second chance because she'll be gone... She sees her death as an infinite sign of her love for them because they wouldn't have to be emotionally invested in her struggle anymore. but @ the bridge, where she says she doesn't want any less anymore, she finds herself realizing that she doesn't want to die as much as she just wants more control over her life... just wants things to be different. so the rest of the song is an internal struggle with her decision to kill herself and her desire for human connection, considering the consequences of both actions. But in the end, she's only left with the assertion that she's gunna love them and show them and when she does, it will be perminate so she won't need a second chance. 🙈

    The Internet

    I also think that Brooke Frasier would sound pretty singing this song. (not that Sara doesn't kill it all on her own, just a thought...)

  54. Andrew Swift

    This song reminds me of walking through the streets of NYC. There's so much bittersweet heartbreak in this song that sings about my heartbreaks (and everyone else's), but then you look up at the skyline and all the pain is released out to the sky.

    Jo W

    you're so right.

  55. EDN

    Still my favourite ❤️

  57. Dia Tabansky

    Even while knowing what this song means, all I hear is God speaking to me through her words where that other person is who I want and doesn't want me but he's just gonna love me (God).... thanks Sarah this song means a lot to me.

  58. Celia Long

    This song is nothing short of AMAZING and sooooooooo soothing and BEAUTIFUL. Sara i love ALL OF your music!! There's a PERFECT somg for every mood.

    BRIGHT LIGHTS AND CITYSCAPES LYRICS

    [Verse 1]
    Hold my breath and I'll count to ten
    I'm the paper and you're the pen
    You fill me in and you are permanent
    And you'll leave me to dry
    I'm the writer and she's the muse
    And the one that you always choose
    She will falter and gift her blame
    And it starts all over again
    Again again again

    [Chorus]
    She is bright lights and cityscapes
    And white lies and cavalcades
    And she'll take all you ever have
    But I'm gonna love you
    You say maybe it'll last this time
    But I'm gonna love you
    You never have to ask
    I'm gonna love you
    'Til you start looking back
    I'm gonna love you
    So right
    I wouldn't need a second chance

    [Verse 2]
    Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
    Tell me why it'll be good again
    All those demons are closing in
    And I don't want you to burn
    Nevermind what I said before
    I don't want any less anymore
    You are carbon and I am flame
    I will rise and you will
    Remain

    Those lines show that Sara will try to get over him, loving him less and less with time, and she’ll rise…

    [Chorus]
    For bright lights and cityscapes
    And landslides and masquerades
    And she'll take all you ever have
    But I'm gonna love you
    You say, "Maybe it'll last this time"
    But I'm gonna love you
    You never have to ask
    I'm gonna love you
    'Til you start looking back
    I wouldn't need a second chance [x4]

    BRIGHT LIGHTS AND CITYSCAPES LYRICS

    [Verse 1]
    Hold my breath and I'll count to ten
    I'm the paper and you're the pen
    You fill me in and you are permanent
    And you'll leave me to dry
    I'm the writer and she's the muse
    And the one that you always choose
    She will falter and gift her blame
    And it starts all over again
    Again again again

    [Chorus]
    She is bright lights and cityscapes
    And white lies and cavalcades
    And she'll take all you ever have
    But I'm gonna love you
    You say maybe it'll last this time
    But I'm gonna love you
    You never have to ask
    I'm gonna love you
    'Til you start looking back
    I'm gonna love you
    So right
    I wouldn't need a second chance

    [Verse 2]
    Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
    Tell me why it'll be good again
    All those demons are closing in
    And I don't want you to burn
    Nevermind what I said before
    I don't want any less anymore
    You are carbon and I am flame
    I will rise and you will
    Remain

    Those lines show that Sara will try to get over him, loving him less and less with time, and she’ll rise…

    pure art

  62. SimeonIsMyName

    I always come back to this song! It just plays me so well. Entirely underrated!

  63. antzg88

    the real queen of sad songs is Sara Bareilles.. not Adele..

    JMAC

    antzg88 very true

    Anton Zuykov

    adele started to remind me of Taylor Swift...except only a grown up, more mature version....But both got stuck on the same.

    The Nephilim

    And the king would be Keaton Henson.

    Rahul Loves'ThePayne

    The Nephilim TRUE THAT.

    Umair Riaz

    @The Nephilim hes on a different level.... Just out of this world...
    When i first heard his song, i cant say how i felt, but i have every song of his that i could find,... These artists are rare and hard to find, its just pure luck that i found Sara back when i was going through a rough patch almost 9 years ago.. and by some miracle i found Keaton henson at a time in my life which was arguably worse... And just thinking about that makes me hopefull..

  64. steban salcedo

    You can touch hearts in a way that anybody can't do it, i love u and i love ur music, thanks for being here in this planet

  65. Robert Henderson

    I reminded of my home NYC.

    Johanna A. Florez

    Do you listen to her songs Manhattan and Chasing The Sun? Both of those refer specifically to NYC :)

  66. Robert Henderson

    Listen. I Love You.

  67. kimchiii1277

    I'm very lucky to be a fan of Sara. Just listening to her beautiful soulful voice and heatfelt lyrics is something I will never get tired of doing. She's my fave singer and songwriter and I'm always proud of saying that even though some of my friends don't know her. It's their loss anyway. XD

    Shelley Duran

    +Efem Potter Everytime I play Sara to anyone they all say the same thing "how can you listen to this? its so depressing." I think us Sara fans are a special kind of people. We hear beauty where other people hear sad. Or something..... I'm done. xD

    kimchiii1277

    That is so true. ;)

    Rog San Pedro

    +Shelley Duran Couldn't agree more! My friends would always tell me that I have a depressing playlist which is mostly made up of Sara's song.

  68. Fallon BlueGem

    This song is totally amazing!!! Totally amazing!!! It speaks so loudly of something that happened in my life once. Love you Sara. Love love your music.

    yep, precise

  73. Curtis Flynn

    I used to play this song during night shift in Atlanta. There was an abandoned floor that gave me a perfect view of the city. This song gave me needed peace.

    sarailopez38

    Curtis Flynn just imagining it now just makes the world stand still for a second 😍

  74. pj9412

    God, she sounds like a Disney princess.

    Johanna A. Florez

    +pj9412 She is who the Disney princesses wish they could sound like. I was about to say she should voice the next princess, but I realized she'd make every other one seem really lame.

  75. Ashley Dolan

    Oh Sara, how you've helped me get through some of my toughest times. Your music is a gift from the heavens! I look forward to listening to your many more albums.

    emma

    Ashley Dolan go away!

  76. Jenné Shantel

    Been rocking with Sara since her first album! She gives us the mysterious and magical aspect of organic artistry. Simply brilliant. I am a singer/songwriter and so I know first hand the difficulty of just making real music in a world full of one hit wonders.

  77. Rachel Feliciano

    Pulls at my heart strings !! The memories that feel as it happened just yesterday... he's been gone way to long...I just wanna see him Happy again...that's all I wish for!! Apollo Verdi....:*(((

  78. Let Me Be Local

  83. Angela Mukora Wangari

  87. suncutie12

    there's someone in my life this makes me think of very much..I cry everytime.

  88. E F Larsen

    Still my favorite song from her.

  89. Abby Gayle Javier

    I love how real artists like SaraB are underrated because they're treasures and it means they're hard to find. Those who find them are privileged enough to be hearing what they have to offer. And only a few have ears to good music that's why followers of great artists like Sara B is not that much. Those in the lime light just give out beat or even noise, but hers is real music - poetic, relatable, raw and creative. Simply SaraB!

    Seith Daniel

    People need to shut up about Sara being underrated. Just because she doesn't get heard on the radio 24/7 doesn't mean she's underrated. I hate it when people pride themselves for "listening to real music" like Sara. Shut up. Listen to Sara. Just listen. There's no need to compare her to anyone. Just shut the fuck up and enjoy her music. She's not doing it to be popular, she's not doing it to win awards. She's doing it because it's her craft, because it's what she wants to do, because it's what she wants. Appreciate her talent. Don't compare her to anyone, because she doesn't want to be compared. She wants to be heard. And so what if she's not heard by a lot? So fucking what? Nobody fucking cares. As long as you listen, as long as some ONE listens. That's good enough. Don't make it seem like she doesn't have enough lustre because she's not heard by millions. As long as someone, some ONE listens, that's good enough. So shut up about being "privileged to hear her." You're not special. Her fanbase is not special. I'm not special and I listen to her. Just shut up and listen, and let her voice steal you away momentarily from your waking life. Enjoy her voice, her lyrics, her. Sara doesn't want to be recognised. She doesn't want to win a Grammy (although that would be nice for any performer, but that's besides the point.) All she wants is for someone to listen to her. And that's good enough for her. Your listening is good enough for her.

    So stop, shut up, and listen. And remember: comparison is the biggest thief of happiness.


    P.S.: I'm mad because people cry about her not being popular like Taylor Swift or Adele or any popular singer. Literally her breakout song was about defying people who could make her popular if she followed their wishes. Hint: she defied them and wrote a song about how she didn't give a fuck about their wishes.

    @merna she has been acknowledged by the awards-giving bodies, and it's enough, i think. she seems to not be needing too much attention, as long as she is happy doing what she's doing. that's my take. we can't please everybody.

  90. Kelli Busbee

    "But I'm going to love you
    You never have to ask"

    this is the most beautiful song ever...cant stop listening to her a cappella version of this song.

  91. ey :)

    Beautiful.

    Hold my breath and I'll count to ten

    She is bright lights and cityscapes
    And white lies and cavalcades
    And she'll take all you ever have
    But I'm gonna love you
    You say maybe it'll last this time
    But I'm gonna love you
    You never have to ask
    I'm gonna love you
    'Til you start looking back
    I'm gonna love you

    There are 9 beats in every measure and an eighth note gets one beat.
