Emmylou Harris – Dimming Of The Day lyrics

This old house is fallin' down around my ears
I'm drowning in the river of my tears
When all my will is gone, hold me sway
I need you at the dimming of the day

You pulled me like the moon pulls on the tide
You know just where I keep my bad side

For days have come to keep us far apart
A broken promise or a broken heart
Now all bonny birds have wheeled away
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 and company
Why don't you come and ease your mind with me?
I'm living for the day we steal away
I need you at the dimming of the day
I need you at the dimming of the day
