The Dying Of The Light

Album: Chasing Yesterday (2015)

  • I keep on running but I can't get to the mountain
    Behind me lie the years that I misspent
    And I've been sitting like a flower in the fountain
    When all the love I'm gonna need is heaven sent

    Gonna try my best to get there
    But I can't afford the bus fare
    And the storm that's rolling over
    Man, it makes me wanna cry

    And I was told
    That the streets were paved with gold
    And there'd be no time for getting old when we were young
    It's alright, if you dance with me tonight
    We'll fight the dying of the light and we'll catch the sun

    Woke up sleeping on a train that was bound for nowhere
    The echoes that I could hear were all my own
    The world had turned and I'd become a stranger
    Got tired of watching all the flowers turn to stone

    Gonna try my best to get there
    But I can't afford the bus fare
    And the storm that's rolling over
    Man, it makes me wanna cry

    And the cold against my shoulder
    When it comes on the winter
    It seems to last forever
    And it makes me wanna, makes me wanna cry

    And I was told
    That the streets were paved with gold
    And there'd be no time for getting old when we were young
    It's alright, if you dance with me tonight
    We'll fight the dying of the light and we'll catch the sun

    Gonna try my best to get there
    But I can't afford the bus fare
    And the storm that's rolling over
    Man, it makes me wanna cry

    And I was told
    That the streets were paved with gold
    And there'd be no time for getting old when we were young
    It's alright, if you dance with me tonight
    We'll fight the dying of the light and we'll catch the sun

    And the cold against my shoulder
    When it comes on the winter
    And it makes me wanna, makes me wanna cry
    And the cold against my shoulder
    It seems to last forever
    And it makes me wanna, makes me wanna cry Writer/s: Noel Gallagher
