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

Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
