I wrote City Lights while living on the West Side of the Chicago. Several years later, I collaborated with Buddy Goettsch on several live performances and he composed this song during one of the sessions. During production of this album, SearchL1te and I decided to take Buddy's composition and have live musicians play the parts he composed.
