BABY, SEE THE RHYTHM OF THE LIGHTS

NOT EVEN THINKING ABOUT ANOTHER DAY
JUST WANT THIS MOMENT TO ALWAYS STAY

VERSE 4:

OH BABY, I KNEW YOU COULDN'T REFUSE
UP AND DOWN THE STRIP, WE'RE GONNA CRUISE
NOTHIN' LIKE DANCIN' TO MAKE A SPIRIT SOAR!
AND WHEN YOU'RE DONE, I'LL STILL WANT MORE
WE LOVE THIS CITY...ALL THE LITES SO BRIGHT
LETS KEEP DANCIN'

Like the song a lot!! I gave ya a 50 for live performance, (I think) and for owning the song.
Very authentic. If you could get that save vibe on a full studio version, ya got something!
Great vibe, guitar work, and signature throughout.
Nicely done!
