Alison Krauss – Dimming Of The Day Lyrics

This old house is falling down around my ears

I’m drowning in a river of my tears

When all my will is gone you hold me sway

I need you at the dimming of the day

You pull me like the moon pulls on the tide

You know just where I keep my better side

What days have come to keep us far apart

A broken promise or a broken heart

Now all the bonnie 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

Come the night you’re only what I want

Come the night you could be my confidant

I see you on the street in company

Why don’t you come and ease your mind with me

I’m living for the night we steal away

I need you at the dimming of the day

I need you at the dimming of the day
