Dimming of the Day

Album: Pour Down Like Silver (1975)
  • 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 confident

    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
    Oh I need you at the dimming of the day Writer/s: RICHARD JOHN THOMPSON

  • Warspite from Atlanta, Ga., UsaI appreciate Ms. Krauss' comments since she is an immensely talented artist. But this is no "woman's song"! Just listen to RT's versions.
