There's a man on my street
He reminds me everyday
Better take what you can get
Cause there's nothing more than this
Daylight fades into the ground,
Oh Lord I need you now

CHORUS
Cover me with the red sky tonight
The promise of a better day to come
Sing over me an angelic symphony
Tell me everything will be alright
With the red sky tonight

We're so *taken* with our fear
*That* we're folded up in shame
*With our feet nailed* to the floor
We're the only ones to blame
I can't help but wonder why
Nobody bats an eye
You can see it in the faces
Of all *the passers by*

So, cover me with the red sky tonight
The promise of a better day to come
Sing over me an angelic symphony
Tell me everything will be alright

I sail into the sun
When the day is done
I need you in the night
So wake me in the dark
I see you in the sun
When the day is done

Cover me with the red sky tonight
I promise a better day will come
Sing over me an angelic symphony
Tell me everything will be alright
Tell me everything will be alright
Tell me everything will be alright

It's the red sky
It's the red sky
Tonight

    I feel like the red sky is god coming to meet me. The sky turns red with the blood of chirst and covers me in a blanket of love. This song moves me every time i hear it. I walked outside tonight and the sky was red. It really helps me to get past the things that are bothering me. Great song.
