"Downtown Sundown" as written by and Philip Parris Lynott....
If you want your freedom
There is nothing planned
If you really need him
I will understand

[Chorus]
Please believe in love
I believe there is a God above
For love
And He's coming, yes He's coming

If you want to fly
Then fly away
All the cloudy skies
Belong to yesterday

[Chorus]

In the shadows the swallow dies
No one knows the hobo hides
There is no need to apologize

This is the story of a downtown sundown
If you climb the mountain
You will see
There is no great distance
Between the Lord and me

[Chorus]

In the shadows a swallow dies
No one knows the hobo hides
There is no need to apologize
This is the story of a downtown sundown

    General CommentI cant believe how few people have commented on Thin Lizzy songs! This is such a great song as well... anyway, i think its about God and the bands relationship with him... not a topic I'd personally choose for a song, but what are you going to do... great tune
