dimming of the day lyrics – tom jones

dimming of the day
(originally by richard and linda thompson)

this old house is falling down round mice
i’m drowning in a river of my tears
when all my will is gone, you can hear me pray
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 bed aside

the days have come to keep us far apart
a broken promise for a broken heart
now all the bonny birds, have flown away
i need you at the dimming of the day
come tonight you’re only what i want
come tonight you can be my comfort doll

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