Based on some thought provoking lyrics from Liam Butler.
A song about a sunset
V1 A purple glass of red in hand, An orange night approaches land, To my right I steal a glimpse of you. Turn my gaze back to the sand, Count myself a lucky man, As I let the colours warm me through.
CH1 If I could write you a song about a sunset, Would you sing it back to me, Not tonight but when I'm old and I am dying, In this same hotel by the sea.
V2 A silhouetted sea bird flies, Where angels play and spirits rise, Where lovers dream and dreamers find romance. Heaven comes down from the sky, To spend a while in your eyes, Think I caught it briefly in a glance
CH2 If I could paint you a picture of a sunset, Would you hold it up for me, Not tonight but when I'm old and I am dying, Short on time and memory.
BR If I could tie a bow around, This perfect gift of peace we've found, I'd package it in separate jars, To hand around to friends of ours, And if those jars could catch the way, The twilight's settled on your face, I'd put aside a jar for me, Labelled sunset remedy.
CH3/Outtro Would you tell me a story of a sunset, Sing the song, I'd sing along, Show me the painting when my mind is old and fading Keep it with you when I'm gone
