dimming of the day lyrics – the corrs

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

you pull 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 bonnie birds have wheeled away
and 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 in company
why don’t you come and ease your mind with me
i am living for the night we steal away
and i need you at the dimming of the day
yes i need you at the dimming of the day
