Lady Sundown

Lately sundown means a little more to me
Heartbeats rise as the sun slips through the trees
As the twilight burns the sky
I can't wait for the light to die
Cos I know how good tonight is gonna be

Lady Sundown, you haunt me through the day
When we lay down you burn my nights away
I never meant to give so much
But your touch turned me around
And when the night falls, I fall too, Lady Sundown, Lady Sundown

Starlight shadows moving in a quiet room
You open to me like a desert flower to the moon
Then the darkness starts to flow
To a rhythm only lovers know
Lyin' in love 'til the mornin' comes too soon

Lady Sundown, you haunt me through the day
When we lay down you burn my nights away
I never meant to give so much
But your touch turned me around
And when the night falls, I fall too, Lady Sundown, ooh ohh

Lady Sundown, you haunt me through the day
When we lay down you burn my nights away
I never meant to give so much
But your touch turned me around
And when the night falls, I fall too, Lady Sundown

Lady Sundown, you haunt me through the day
When we lay down you burn my nights away
