“Watch how she fades, into the sunset”…

sunset

Beginnings of an end,
as her sunset fades…

Now it’s time to forget,
all the promises made…

The curve of her lips,
the look in her eye…

When everything dies,
there is only goodbye…

In a world full of hurt,
of anguish and pain…

What began as distraction,
always ends the same…

Leaving you drifting,
alone on life’s tide…

No matter the story,
or how hard you tried…

To keep it together and
fuel the raging fire…

It will always escape,
it will forever tire…

Leaving confusion,
anger and hurt…

Feelings of loneliness,
hearts covered in dirt…

And it’s for the best,
is what they will say…

The ones who wish,
they’d been able to play…

But will never fly high,
upon Magpie wings…

Or dance with the Devil,
as Lady Lust sings…

As your left thinking,
you could have done more…

Staring up at the stars,
knocked down to the floor…

Knowing your life,
will never be the same…

As you try to forget and
anesthetize your pain…

  1. Lovely words – great pairing with ‘sunset’ – I saw Neil Finn in Manchester last April and he did this song! Couldn’t believe it – one of my favourites by Neil. 🙂
