JustTizze’s Soulful and Soul-baring “City Lights” is an Uplifting Journey From the Depths of Despair to Living One’s Best Life

“City Lights” by JustTizze sounds like picking yourself up from being beaten down by life but finding that final strand that lets you bask in in enough of compassion for self to sit up and consider what you need to feel like you can go on. The soulful, soaring vocals and the shift from torch song beginnings to triumphant rock and pop in the last half of the song parallels the sense of going from a flicker of life and hope to finding the will and motivation to discover the rungs of the ladder back to at least trying to live your full life again. The production style here and arc of song is reminiscent of solo George Michael from the late 80s and early 90s but it also perfectly suits the subject matter of the song.
