Case closed.
I'm not here anymore
And I'm not scared anymore.
The way you walked away
I could tell you weren't afraid
To do the things you had to do.
Even though I meant so much to you.

But darling where you goin'?
It's so cold outside.
I know that I can't be concerned,
But you're still in my life.
(But you're still in my life)

CHORUS:
When I am miles away
Will you still check on me?
Tell me things will be alright.
Just tell me we will be
Together someday.
It's in the dreams I have.
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette.
(You'll be my silhouette.)

Just take my hand and well,
Never let go because
If we're together now
We'll be together then.
Step back and see me walk away
And watch me run right back.
I'll show you how to love again.
This is the best idea I've had.
(This is the best idea I've had.)

CHORUS

I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette

CHORUS
When I am miles away
Will you still check on me?
Tell me things will be alright.
Just tell me we will be
Together someday.
It's in the dreams I have.
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette.
(You'll be my silhouette.)

When I am miles away
Will you still check on me?
Tell me things will be alright.
Just tell me we will be
Together someday.
It's in the dreams I have.
I'll be your sunset
If you'll be my silhouette.
(You'll be my silhouette.)

    I think it means more of the girl he loves had to move away and they can't be together right now but they're still hoping to be together someday. Sunsets are always far away, you can't touch them but you can admire them, their light cast silhouettes.
    In this song he's the sunset and she's the silhouette.

    When I am miles away
    Will you still check on me?
    Tell me things will be alright.
    Just tell me we will be
    Together someday.
    It's in the dreams I have.
    I'll be your sunset
    If you'll be my silhouette.

    Someone Told Me This Song Reminded Them Of Me =)
    I Thought It Was ADORABLE.
    I Was Like, Ahh I Love You :D
    Then I Searched The Lyrics, And Now I Understand
    Because I Do Tell Him We Will Be Together One Day, And Somtimes He Says It Back When I Disagree.
    Gosh He Is The BEST. :D
    Love Chloe

    My sister is moving to the other side of the country and this song is my question to her will she still remember to check on me ... Will she remember me?

    When i am miles away
    Will you still check on me?
    Tell me things will be alright.
    Just tell me we will be
    Together someday.
    It's in the dreams i have.
    I'll be your sunset
    If you'll be my silhouette.

    In my opinion, the meaning of i'll be your sunset is that this is about two people who have always loved one another, but they have a long distance relationship. And even though it is tough, they have to say goodbye sometimes. Finally, the boy realizes that he can't live without her, he can't stand being apart from her. He wants to run away with her, be everything she needs.. Because it breaks his heart and hers when she has to leave...
