dimming of the day lyrics – alison krauss

“dimming of the day”

this old house is falling down around my ears
i’m drowning in a river of my tears
when all my will is gone you hold me sway
i need you at the dimming of the day

you pulled me like the moon pulls on the tide
you know just where i keep my better side

what days have come to keep us far apart
a broken promise or a broken heart
now all the bonny birds have wheeled away
i need you at the dimming of the day

come the night you’re only what i want
come the night you could be my confidant

i see you on the street and in company
why don’t you come and ease your mind with me
i’m living for the night we steal away
i need you at the dimming of the day

i need you at the dimming of the day
