John Hiatt – Lipstick Sunset lyrics

There's a lipstick sunset
Smeared across the august sky
There's a bitter sweet perfume
Hanging in the fields
The creek is running high

And I left my lover waiting
In the dawn somewhere to wonder why
By the end of the day
All her sweet dreams would fade
To a lipstick sunset

Well, a radio was playing
And that ol' summer heat was on the rise
I just had to get away
Before some sad old song
Brought tears to my eyes

And lord I couldn't tell her
That her love was only killing me
By the end of the day
All her sweet dreams would fade
To a lipstick sunset

Well it's pretty as a picture baby
Red and blushing just before the night
Maybe love's like that for me
Maybe I can only see
As you take away the light

So hold me in the darkness
We can dream about the cool twilight
'Til the end of the day
I can make my getaway
To a lipstick sunset

Til the end of the day
I can make my getaway
To a lipstick sunset

There will come another day
Then I'll make my getaway
To a lipstick sunset
