Mr. Sunset

Settle me down To the last hour of the day.To when the anxious moments' lift'dAnd I can still see your face.Take me downThe very last road I need.To where my independence shifts, And I've found my place to breathe.Quiet the noise,And close the shades.Say 'everything will be okay''Grasp my fears looselyThen throw them away.Before settling me downTo the last hour of the day....more
