Bonnie Raitt – Dimming Of The Day lyrics

This old house is falling downaround my ears
I'm drowning in a river of mytears
When all my will is gone youhold me sway
I need you at the dimming of theday

You pulled me like the moon
Pulls on the tide
You know just where I keep mybetter side

What days have come to keepus far apart
A broken promise or a brokenheart
Now all the bonny birds havewheeled away
I need you at the dimming of theday

Come the night you're only whatI want
Come the night you could be myconfidant

I see you the street and incompany
Why don't you come and eastyour mind with me
I'm living for the night we stealaway
I need you at the dimming of theday
I need you at the dimming of theday...
