"Lonesome Sundown" as written by and Tom Petty....
She's a lonely girl
Lost in the world
Got love in her eyes for me
She's a sweet young thing
Brings me dreams
In a box she made for me

Lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
It's a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
I know so don't let go, this is gonna be hard

I'll never let you down
This love I've found
It means too much to me
And I stand accused
Outside the law
But you are all I need

Lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
Yeah a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
I know
So don't let go this is gonna be hard

Redemption comes
To those who wait
Forgiveness is the key
And I wish you love
And I wish you hope
Please believe in me

And it's a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
Yeah a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
I know
So don't let go this is gonna be hard

    General Commenti think this is about a woman that he loves and they are going to break up, but he wants her to know that their love and friendship meant the world to him. even thought they might no longer be together, he'll always be there for her.
